I have a Duo-Therm, mod# 600315.321 on a motorhome. Fan motor overheats, but only after the compressor kicks on. New motor, swapped out caps w/identical working unit. Ground is good. Unit will run all day OK w/just fan, but when put on "cool", it will run and produce cold air for 15 min, the fan then quits. Compressor will run for 5 - 10 minutes more by itself, then the circuit breaker kicks.

... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

Air conditioner runs for a few hours and it works - it cools the house. Then it stops cooling - the fan still runs but it doesn't blow out cool air any more. It seems like it's overheating or something. It will blow out cool air if it has not been turned on in a while but once it's on too long it stops. I was told it could be the fan motor and the a/c guy changed the fan motor today but that didn't fix the problem. Now he says it might be the compressor or that I need a new system. I'm jus

I have a Dometic 15,000 btu, ducted air conditioner in my 30 ft fifth wheel. It seems like the unit has never cooled very efficiently. Dealer has checked out. I noticed yesterday, outside air over 100 degrees, that the air conditioner would put out good flow of cool air, but once in a while compressor would stop running even though not close to thermo setting. Fan would continue running. Any suggestions?

Great site. I have a Simplicity SPAC 8499-5 Portable Air Conditioner and it was working fine up until yesterday (~2 years old). The unit is running and the fan operational but while the green light for Cool/Dry is illuminated that actually cooling unit for the air conditioner is not kicking in.
