Question about Air Conditioners

2 Answers

I purchased a Coleman model 564 cooler about june 1,2008 at Wal-mart. I used it for two trips to Canada,June and August,one week each. The fan operates spasmodically and the unit does not cool. I believe the unit will not work in a non-pristine environment, it appears a small amount of dust makes the fan inoperable.THE .35 AMP 12v DC motor made in China does not do the job.This is my 2nd Coleman cooler,model 564,the first being a model 5640. The results are the same. I have two really nice looking coolers and neither one works.George H.Holdren 1215 State Rte 254 Millville Pa.

    one month of use and the Chinese fan melted

  • truckerllew Apr 01, 2009

    I have had the cooler about 6 months. It operates in a tractor trailer in a moderate dusty environment. I think the fan burned out. It has had a problem with buildup of ice during humid weather as well. I first noticed a problem when I began to smell hot wiring. I thought it might have been the cord but upon closer inspection I noticed the fan wasn't moving. I believe the motor has burned out. I have lost the receipt so I cannot return it to walmart or turn it in for warranty work. I have gone to the coleman website but i dont know what parts to get. Should I purchase all the electronics or just the motor?

I had the same problem with the fan...its junk.. don't try to replace it with the same kind of fan. I went to radio shack and got a 3.15"square brushless fan. You could go to a computer store and get the 3 &5/8" fan with ball bearings and it would fit just like the old one. Fans run about $15 to $20 depending on location. I cut the old one out and sodered the new one in and it works fine now. Hope this helps. Larry Crockett at crockett2242@yahoo.com Let me know how it works.

Coleman mach rv ac unit tripping breaker


If it trips the circuit breaker as soon as you turn the FAN on, suspect either a bad fan motor or a failed fan motor start capacitor. If you are able to turn the fan on but the circuit breaker trips as soon as the COMPRESSOR starts, it is possible that the compressor is seized.
If, on the other hand, the unit is tripping a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) breaker or GFCI utility outlet, it is possible that neutral and hot are reversed at the outlet into which the trailer is plugged (happened to me this year at an RV park).

No start up


No its not. Bad valves are caused by dirty filers,dirty coils that cause liquid refrigerant to slug compressor and knockout the valves. Rus

Fan in our Sharp "Comfort Touch thru-wall a/c stopped


Unless the Unit can be cleaned ( you claim it cools?) but not enough. The age of the Unit is not in you Question, the amount of time you got for 100 bucks is pretty good being you purchased a USED UNIT. With the type of use you claim Running 24/7 and about 5 months of cooling - I'd say you never cleaned the Unit from day one - that might cost you about 100 bucks if the unit can be done in the yard by a serviceman. Chemicals can hurt the Unit if not done properly ( and yourself). It sounds to me like you use it for a Business - if so you can purchase one and write it off .

Sounds like a wiring problem between the outdoor unit and the house. You would be surprised what I have come across in 30+ years of A/C work.
But it could also be the compressor.

I will need to know answers to the following -

Does the compressor have a soft start (2 wire capacitor looking device that attaches to the run capacitor), hard start (relay and capacitor), or just the run capacitor?

Were the run capacitors and start components replaced when the compressor was replaced?

Is the breaker a GFI breaker, or just a standard breaker?

Rain or humidity is not usually a factor, but it may be something.

Reply back what you find.

Unless you go back with same motor you may have to do some modifications. Is the new motor to big to fit where it belongs or is the wiring different. If it's to big you'll have to return it for right one. If the wiring is different then you will have to match up the wires.

My colmen central air unit is not working properly. The Outside unit is not working. The problem initally arouse in June, but it "self corrected" after having the A/C unit turned off. Since that...


If nothing is running outside at times you probably have a weak contactor coil that is not pulling the contactor in all the time. If the outside fan comes on but not the compressor, the compressor is over heating and shutting off on overload protection. This could be a dirty condenser coil, low on refrigerant, the compressor it's self. The compressor comes with a 5 yr. warranty.
