Question about Air Conditioners

Ducted gas hetaing keeps tripping the thermo fan switch. We seem to have plenty of air flow out of the vents and have replaced 75% of the ducting

    The Heater keeps cutting out. The thermo fan has a cut out swith which needs to be reset.



    The switch is a safety mechanism which prevents over heating. Therefotre lack of airflow over the override switch causes the heater to shout down.



    I have replaced a section of the air intake which had initially collapsed. I have also replaced 75% of the outlow ducting some of which had been crushed and may have lead to poor airflow. Once this was replaced the heater worked for a consistant five hours and now will not run for than 30secs



    Thanks

    Do you mean that the high limit switch keeps shutting off the gas and the fan keeps running? Do you mean the fan stops and the heater keeps running until the high limit switch shuts it down for safety reasons?

It seems that you are saying the thermo fan stops first, thenfotre the safety limit switch shouts off the gas. This would mean the thermo fan motor is bad. It is overheating, which cuts out the thermo fan switch. The gas only shouts off because the thermo fan motor is bad.

Rv airconditioner trips breaker


Does it trip when fan only , or when compressor for cool cuts in? Sounds like capacitor perhaps . Get back to me with model number, and whether it's a ducted system, or blows out at ceiling assembly.

Just wanted to find out if the vent should be open or closed when air conditioner is on..


If you are talking about a whole house ducted system, it is best to keep all vents open.
If you are talking about a window air conditioner, the vent is mainly intended to bring in fresh air, usually people keep them closed, unless you are just running the fan only and want to bring in cooler fresh air, like in the early mornings.
If this has helped, please rate me, or contact me back with any further questions that I can help you with.
Sincerely,

Stops blowing air


remove cover at ceiling so you can see in at fins and see if they are frosting up bad. If they are, I suspect during AC installation, they didn't open up ducts on discharge properly and air flow is restricted, which will cause freeze up, especially if low flow from discharge ducts. I'm assuming it is a ducted system. You may have to remove or drop down entire ceiling assy, to see if the ducts into ceiling have any blockage. Sometimes they don't cut rubber roof material back far enough, or misaligned ducts and cause restricted flow to ceiling vents, which will cause unit to frost up, which kicks out compressor until frost is melted, then compressor kicks back in and cooling happens again.

Does anyone know if a Duo Therm model 620515.331c is ducted or not???


The upper unit itself is not ducted. They are all the same. The ducting is done with the lower unit or "Ceiling Pack" of the air conditioner. You need to see your RV is ducted, ie...vents in the ceiling that blow the are out. Usually they are round and mount into the ceiling. Another way to tell is if the unit has a wall mounted thermostat.

Hope this helps,

BRIVAS DUCTED HEATER FAN RUNS BUT NO HEAT


It sounds like a bad or tripped limit switch. The limit switch is a small disk about the size of a penny with 2 wires attached. There will be a small button between the two wires. Press firmly to reset it. Depending on your unit there could be 2 to 5 of them to reset. If they aren't tripped, then one by one, take a small jumper wire and jump them by bypassing them. You will eventually come across the "bad" one. If you can't reset it, then you will have to replace it. There is also a limit that can not be replaced that is located on the heat exchanger wall. Bypass it only temporarily to see if it is bad as well.

Installation of 57915


Dusty;
Look in the 14x14 hole the ac sets on. See the openings, those are where the air flows through the ceiling. If you block those off you will not get air. The air box kit is for ducted air. If you notice it will direct air to the ceiling ducts.
