Coleman portable model 5640 cooler cord

You gave an answer on how to connect this with the red/blue areas of the plug. We had the same cord but have lost it. It had one end that went into the lighter (cizarette) and the othe end was flat with red/blue. WHERE CAN I FIND ANOTHER CORD?
Is this discontinued? If you have a source please tell me.
Thank you,
Jo Ann

Jo Ann,

You can google "coleman 5640" and quite a few websites will come up that offer repair parts and the cord is one of them. There are only three parts that you can still buy for that model cooler. The cord, the motor, and the removable tray. Hope this helps.

My cooler was working great and now it is not blowing any cold air inside the cooler. The fan is working but is blowing cold air into the car. What am I doing wrong. ??? Thanks.


Bear in mind that these coolers can also warm, depending on the orientation of the power cord connection. One end of the power cord has an arrow, the other end has a blue dot on one side and a red dot on the other. For cooling, connect power cord ends so that the arrow is on the same side as the blue dot. If the arrow is on the same site as the red dot, the cooler becomes a warming device, venting cold air outside the cooler and into the car. Could that be the problem?

My coleman electric cooler model 5640 does not get cold. The fan is on but it is not getting cold. Can I fix it?


For that to happen the electronic component that causes to cool the container already defective. It need to be replace with similar parts.
You can fix it, if you have some knowledge in electronic or electrical, know how to test of component parts, able to use test instruments.
If you don't have such knowledge, call a service technician to do that.
Good luck.

Coleman 12-volt cooler stoped working/fan burned out


Sound like you have the newer version. These fans can be found at Radio Shack or anywhere computer parts are sold. It doesnt have to be an exact replacement. Just big enough to fit over the Cooling fins. Also make sure it's a 12 volt motor

The 5640 Coleman cooler motor runs, but unit does not cool.


This is a thermoelectric (TE) cooler. There is no gas' to replace in it's cooling system. It is possible the thermoelectric coupler has gone bad. Unfortunately Coleman does not seem to offer a replacement part. If you Google thermoelectric couplers, maybe you can find something on the web. Good Luck.

WE HAVE A COLEMAN 5640 PORTABLE FRIDGE. WE HAVE ONLY USED IT TWICE, AND JUST GOT IT OUT FOR A WEEKEND TRIP(TO PUT INSULIN IN)BUT IT ONLY HEATS UP, NOT COOL. ANY IDEAS? wE HAVE BOTH THE CAR ADAPTER AND...


I bought one but it was missing the cord, so I hooked it to the benchtop supply. I found out if you place positive to the red terminal/grey wires under the outside cover and negative to the blue/black wires it cools. With a DPDT switch and a couple of LEDs you could wire it so you dont need that special coleman cord, any lighter cord will work provided it can handle about 6 amps, I recommend 12 to 14 gauge wire and a 6 amp fuse.

Coleman 5640 cooler


The cover on the inside just pulls off. Inside/Outside fans pull off. 2 screws to dismount motor. Unscrew leads to terminal. Most truckstops carry the motor, otherwise search for Colman 5640.

Have a coleman 5640 heating/cooling unit and the motor won't run unless just a tiny amount of pressure added?? Any suggestions?


Yes, to change from heat to cool is done by reversing the power plug that is close to the housing. Matching the blue on the plug(as I recall) makes it cool. The red to blue makes it a heater. If it is currently heating, the unit works fine, it just needs the polarity reversed.
Good luck,
Glenn
