Question about Air Conditioners

2 Answers

AC Compressor I am trying to determine where the compressor contactor is in the Coleman roof ac in my fifth wheel. The unit blows cold air but will not shut off. Regardless of settings on the thermostat the compressor keeps running. The only way to shut it off it to use the breaker.

You can find the contactor in the access/service panel area.

Check your CONTACTOR - the black "block" where all the line wires connect. Sometimes they stick. It's a cheap part, although make sure you take a pic of the contactor with all the wires attached BEFORE you take the wires out to get a replacement.

I have a heat pump. it stays on i have to turn it off by the breaker. also my ac only blows out warm air what is my problem


You may have a bad thermostat, keeping the unit on,or the compressor contactor in the condensing unit outside seized shut. When contactors get older they can kind of melt the contacts together.This would also cause it to run in heat mode.

Hi, if you are energizing the contacts on the contactor, and the compressor runs, the thermostat is faulty. This is what energizes the contactor coil that you have. You need to check to see if you have voltage to the coil on the contactor. You need to replace the stat asap.

My coleman mah 3 roof top will not blowon fan side


Sounds like you have either a bad fan motor or a bad fan motor capacitor. When you turn the unit on with the fan not working, the compressor (the humming noise) runs and gets real hot real quick resulting in the compressor cutting off ( the nothing after) on it's inside high temp switch. This is what the compressor is designed to do so that when this happens, it does not burn the compressor out. Replace you fan capacitor, give the compressor an hour to cool, then try it. In most cases and if I'm correct, the unit will run just like you want it to. Good luck.

You will need 12 vdc (battery or converter) for controls to work, and 115 VAC (hydro) for fan & compressor to work. With your fan obviously working, that tells me you have both already but compressor may not be kicking in. Do you hear a "moaning" sound or see lights dim when switched to cool?
