Question about Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner
Posted by Anonymous on
Remove all covers and look down with them removed and see if the coil drain pan has a stopped up exit where the water drains out and into the rear of the AC unit.
If the unit is off level it could cause a draining problem too.

not likely but possible. if they already had one bad board what's to say their production methods have changed since they made your last bad board. I have just had 6 bad compressors from this chinese company danfoss in one month! for only 2 freezers i have installed 3 bad compressors in each! nobody takes pride in production anymore they want the stuff to break.

Your probably looking at the control module number or something in that area. When you have the ceiling assy off as in cleaning filters, look for a sticker directly on the base of the roof unit. Look all around on that base, even behind wiring harness, you should find a model number and serial number.

Hi, I did some research and found nothing on the a/c unit. If I had the model and serial numbers from the condenser and compressor this would help me. This would be a run capacitor doing the start up, dropping out the start relay and keeping it running. If you have only one run capacitor and its a dual, will have 3- female spades coming from the top, with marks that say Fan, C for common, and Herm. for compressor. If it has only one capacitor with2- female terminals, several places to connect more than 2 wires, its a single cap. If it just runs the compressor, it could be a 370 volt x 20, 25, 30, 35, uf?? If its a dual it could be a 370 volt x 5 u f for the fan and the same , 20, through 35 u f or microfareds. The best way to find out is to take off the wires on it, and make sure you draw a diagram so you know they are right, and take it to a appliance parts house and let them check it to see what they are. Larger units can have a 440 volt x 20 to 35, 40, 45 and so on. Your unit is not that large, so it will only be 370 volts as far as voltage, but the u f value will need to be checked with a meter that will check the value of these and give you a number such as 4.99 u. f. and you will no its a 5 u f. It may be higher like 5.24 u.f.and that is OK. Make sure the capacitor has no oil leaking from it or its not swollen looking or distorted in anyway, it will be open or shorted out. Please let me know if I have been of help to you when you go to rate me, please be kind. I will be here if you need my help if you are having problems with the compressor not starting.

PS If this capacitor is black plastic and mounted on the side of the compressor, it will be a start, run capacitor with 2 wires. It snaps in a metal type holder you will need to take it out and check the terminal area it was connected to and remove it. If only 2 wires, it won't make a difference what side the leads hook to.

Testimonial: "This is exactually the information I was looking for. The paper label on the black plastic cse was faded, and I wasn't sure of the u f range this comperssor needed. Thanks, G"
