RE: Solar Project – 2/3 Done

I did not buy the Victron inverter, PD lithium instead. But I have the Victron battery monitor and MPPT 100/30 solar controller with just 360 watts of panel. I added the Cerbo which is both Bluetooth and WiFi. I have a mifi in the RV. Kinda wish now that I had sprung for the Victron inverter/charger. But the Cerbo tells me a lot whether in the RV or not.

RE: Air Conditioner not working.

I’m the other thread. I replaced both the run and fan capacitors. Turns out my Coleman Mach 15 does not have a separate start capacitor. Nor does it have a speed selector switch. I still have a problem with the high fan option. The high fan wire sparks with power applied. But the air is working again and the fix was pretty easy.

RE: Air conditioner stopped working

I could not figure out why the high wire doesn’t operate. There is no speed selector switch to test. The wires are plugged into the control board. Unfortunately I think I blew the electronic compressor circuit on the expensive Bluetooth thermostat because when I hooked it back up the compressor would not stay on. I re-installed the original thermostat and it’s working. I didn’t hook up the hi fan since it sparks on application of power. So it could be the wire or the control board I guess. The impeller turns freely as does the fan blade but I noticed the impeller has a chip in it wher part of a fin is broken off. That seems weird.

RE: Air conditioner stopped working

It’s the high fan wire. It’s shorted out. I tested the thermostat and got a spark on the green wire. Took off the thermostat completely and got the same spark between the hot and hi fan. All the other functions work; low fan, compressor, and heat. Apparently auto hi and auto lo do nothing. I’m not sure why they cycle through. So sounds like I need to find the short! That does not seem like it’s going to be easy. On the other hand I could just tape it off. The air works fine on low cool. I found the only difference between the lo cool and hi cool is the fan speed. I hope I didn’t fry the thermostat when the green wire sparked!

RE: Air conditioner stopped working

Maybe. I checked that the thermostat wiring was secure but I probably need to put power directly to the hi fan wire.

RE: Air conditioner stopped working

I waited for the OEM run capacitor that came today. I installed it and a new fan capacitor. Now both work on low but not on high. Can’t find anything to explain that. Could the fan motor be broken?

RE: Air conditioner stopped working

Thanks! Hmm the parts list says it’s a run capacitor. Same thing? In some models there are three capacitors including start, run, and fan. This one only has two. I ordered the small black one before I looked in the compartment. Turns out I can’t get a shop to look at it until July 19th. We are taking a trip to hot Indiana on July 27th.

RE: Tripping solar panel breaker

Just reporting that the upgrade to a 30 amp breaker on the panel side worked. But of course the amps I was reading were below 15 when tested.

RE: Air conditioner stopped working

Maybe the unit needs a hard start capacitor. But I understand that is just when the generator does not have enough power. The AC does not start even on a 30 amp outlet. The run and fan capacitors are inexpensive. I'm reading about how to test a capacitor. Should I test the incoming voltage to be sure its getting enough power?

RE: Air conditioner stopped working

Parts List and Unit ID Darn I found the issue. The parts list designates a start capacitor only for the 87* Series. Parts 15,16,17. Model Used Part Number Item 16. 87X 8333A9021 Start Capacitor Pkg. (88-108 MFD/165V)

RE: Air conditioner stopped working

The part finally came. I didn't call insurance because it would cost at least $500 to fix and it looked so easy. Opened up the panel and I don't have a start capacitor! Just a run and a fan capacitor? The start capacitor that I received is listed in the parts diagram for the 48000 series but there isn't a corresponding part inside the AC. Now what?

RE: Air conditioner stopped working

I’m just going to ask for an authorized shop. Then see how long it takes to get an appointment. I still think I’ll install the part because I bet it will take weeks.

RE: Air conditioner stopped working

Since the part won’t get here for several days I think I’ll call on Monday. It will be interesting to see if I can get an appointment. I’ve been waiting for an accident repair since March. Small accident sideswiped a concrete post so won’t involve our insurance.

RE: Air conditioner stopped working

Thanks so much. I agree to try it. OEM part is $45 at Camping World and might be able to pick up today. I need to find out before Monday so I can call them. No I guess not. Ordered through Amazon but delivery will be next week. Guess there is no real hurry. I did not order the run capacitor too. Thanks.

RE: Air conditioner stopped working

I looked up this part and the 48000 series was not mentioned as compatible. But the parts list for this series lists the same part number. I’m capable of installing this myself but if it does not fix it I won’t be able to use my extended warranty. I bought it because we purchased the RV a year ago from a private party and we were taking it on a long trip. It was a decision based on what if? The deductible is $500. It is unlikely that the repair will cost that much. The insurance year ends on July 22nd. The rear brakes were replaced this winter and they were not covered because it was a maintenance item. Should I call and report this?

RE: Air conditioner stopped working

Would a soft start device work instead? For 6 times the cost is it worth it?

Air conditioner stopped working

It hums for awhile but does not kick on. It’s a Coleman 48000 series. 15,000btu. Owners manual says the compressor might not kick on if the filter is dirty but it’s not. Also that there is a high pressure lockout switch. I have not gone up to check out the unit. Any hints about what to test or look for? Just clean it and see if the problem persists?

RE: Tripping solar panel breaker

I could not find any reference to bypass diodes in the specs for my panels but in a general explanation of bypass diodes I read that most panels have three. They are located in the junction box on the panel. Here is the diagram of the Solarland box. I’m assuming the three sections are bypass diodes.

RE: Tripping solar panel breaker

I don't know why you have to fuse panels. Apparently you don’t if wired in series. The amps are not high enough to damage the wires if there is a short circuit. That’s what the windynation site that was shared explained.
EMD360 05/12/22 02:20pm Tech Issues
RE: Tripping solar panel breaker

As I understand it series wiring means the panels have to both be working at the same efficiency to get maximum power from them. So partial shading impacts the total power available more. Most campsites have at least partial shade. So I opted for parallel wiring. Am I wrong about that? I believe I read that was the case.
