Question about Coleman Mach III Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Air conditioner and heater come on by itself

Our Coleman Mach has a remote control to operate it. The heater will come on at odd times without us turning it on and the air conditioner will also come on unexpectedly. The does not appear to be a manual off switch on the unit.
It could be 80 degrees inside and the heater is set at the lowest setting and it comes on.

    We are not sure if grandchild messed around with the buttons on the remote but when we set it to where we usually do the heater comes on even when we think it is "off" If we turn the remote off how does the heater come on by itself?

    Have you tried removing batteries in remote, if it has them. If so, leave them out for a minute or so, and try again. You should go to your manual for remote and check procedures for setting it up & what happens after power off. I think it is all explained in there.

My coleman mach air conditioner won't turn off by the controller. I have to turn the circuit breaker off to get it to stay off. The controller works with the heater just fine. What could this be?

Sounds like the contactor that controls the compressor and fan is sticking. You will have to remove the top cover to get to it. It will probably be in a box after you remove the cover. Turn the power off and see if it is still pulled in. If you can get it unstuck then it may work, otherwise you will need a new one.

Twice now, on my RV heater air unit has turned on in the middle of the night, even though I have the power to the unit turned off. This is a Coleman mach unit with a remote control. If the power is off on...

It obviously does have power going to it, remote controls will not re-energize an appliance such as this. Ensure the switch you are manipulating is the power switch, it sounds like an "on-off" switch and no that is the same thing, a power switch removes power, an on-off switch does just that but will not control the power to the machine.

My remote wont turn on A.C. and when I push manual override cool or heat nothing happens the unit is a coleman mach with the RVP remote I am also getting the led flash on 2 seconds off one,my remote test...

If the system does not turn on and there is not beep, it is either a low or overvoltage situation or a problem in the wiring. Check the 12VDC at thermostat and make sure that it is OK. Also, check the incoming 120VAC at the control box (unit with small phone cord)
