Answers :

Do You have a volt meter? You might not be getting low voltage to the coil. Make sure your two wire coming out of the house is not broke and connected to the coil on the contactor.

Rv air conditoner turns on but will not cool air. the themostate works good when heat is turn on no problems. the air conditioner acts as if there is no coolant, or maybe not enough. if it were an automoble I would just have to add freon or some type of coolant for rv's. there does not seem to be a way to recharge it.


RV air conditioners are a closed system. A Refrigeration mechanic can install valves and re-charge it, but by the time you pay for that, it may be smarter to just replace the unit.You say it's turning on, but do you actually hear the "hum" or "moan" ... Air Conditioners

Compressor I have a air condition unit that blows out cold air for a little while and then the air in neither cold nor hot. I had someone come and check it out and they said the compressor was bad. Is that really the problem or could it be something else? The model I have is Intertherm T3RC-042K. I just don't want to have to spend that much money on fixing the compressor and that is not the problem. If it is the problem, is it something that can be done yourself or does a professional need to do

I have a coleman air conditioner 6799A800 series- super mach. On very hot days it starts and cools very good, but then the compressor kicks out. We think it might be becasue so many people are using power for their air conditions that it's drawing the power down. My friend had the same problem he changed the capasitor in his unit and now it is working properly, could this be my problem? If so do you stock the capasitor I would need?
