Couple or reasons, Unit sized too small, plugged filter or low refrigerant. Have the unit cleaned and inspected by a qualified technician.

It sounds like either the compressor valves have failed or the rev valve has stuck in one position. You don't mention if you looked at the operating pressures of the compressor that information would help.

I tried to turn on my air coditioning today for the first time this year and my Totaline Themostat P474-1050 won't turn on. Worked fine during the winter and last summer.


the thermostat is powered by the unit or batteries if batteries they may be dead if the unit you need to check fuses outside at unit or reset breaker outside depending on age of installation

My Sunbeam air conditioner has always flipped the breakers in my house (old wiring), but it worked fine for two summers and then sat last summer. This summer it blows the breaker constantly and in the...


This is a good question to ask. 1. if a unit trippes a breaker its for 2 reasons. A. to protect the wiring from catching fire . B. to protect you from electrical contact with ashort condition. Before you buy a new unit I would recommend you fix the wiring as bad siring is ******* the unit and costly to operate due to load resistance. Also replace any breakers that are unsed to support this unit. Brealers go bad esp if they have been problematic in the past. I am not certain as to the size of the unit you have now but if it cooled the room well then replace it with a match or a bit bigger unit.
As to why it tripps the breaker now? could be a couple thing Bad wiring like you state. weak breakers as I pointed out. or a bad compressor or fans. Or in my view its most like a combo of all the above. Hope this helps let me know.. Jon

Fan wired directly to L1 runs constantly. no schematic on inside of cover. 5 wires from blower motor, brown to M1 yellow to M2 and black piggybacked to L1, white to neutral, others not hooked up. terminal...


Sounds like this unit was worked on in the summer and has a bad control board so the tech jumped it out till a control board was available . Take the black "high speed" and place on fan terminal to confirm. Get a new board and replace wire for wire you should take a picture first,and the plus are the easiest to find there spots so start with them.

Unit just stopped working during the evening after having run for 4-5 hours fine. circuit breaker not the problem.


Check your voltage to the unit. Be sure to use a big cord when hooking up your camper. Does the unit have a wall mounted thermostat? Does the blower run? When was it cleaned last?

AC not cooling during the day


Your AC cooling efficiency is low when he ambient temperature is high and naturally it cools well when the outside temperature drops.

Please remove the filter on the grill and try to clean it under the tap water and after removing all the dust fix it back to the unit. This would increase the cooling efficiency of the unit.

Your AC is also five years old. Please avoid frequent opening of doors or windows.

Ensure that the exhaust fan and the blower of your unit are functioning normal.

The technician might not have done a proper job in fixing the area where the refrigerant would have leaked out. Please check the refrigerant pressure to ensure that no further refrigerant leak has taken place. Or even servicing your unit he would have punchered the tubes resulting in very slow leak of refrigerant resulting in no cooling or less cooling. It takes around a month to feel the pinch of it and the refrigerant. One fine morning after sometime the unit will run and it would start throwing hot air instead of cool breeze!

Air conditioner constantly running, not cooling house


Check and see if it is froze up. Check big line at outside unit for ice. check filter and replace as needed. Check outside fan to see if it is running. Wash out outside coil If fan and compressor are running and has hot small line at outside unit. If not froze up and coil is clean you will need to call in a pro. If compress over heated you may need to wait for it to restart if coil was dirty. Again make sure out door fan and or unit is running and clean.

Just a little question, guys!


The blower has absolutely nothing to do with outdoor air. Having the T-Stat set to auto lets the blower come on only when the A/C-heat comes on. With the switch in the ON position the blower simply runs all of the time. Depending on your living space (high ceilings, multi-level) having the blower on constantly while costing a small amount to run can actually save some money and make you more comfortable in the summer. However most people will leave it in auto in the winter so they don't feel as if they have a draft from the air movement as the blower is in high speed in fan on position and cool modes and low speed in heat mode. Many furnaces today are equipped with a setting that allows the blower to run constantly at a lower speed or simply run for a min. or two after the A/C=Heat have turned off.

I think you have a high pressure cutoff cycling the compressor on and off. Clean the filter inside the unit. Then with a hose clean out the foil condenser filter on top of the camper. Also you may need to buy a coil comb and comb out bent or damaged areas of the condenser coil on the unit that is above the roof of the camper.
