Coleman air conditioner troubleshooting

Coleman air conditioner troubleshooting. Coleman air conditioners keep you cool in the heat of summer with all kinds of AC solutions.

No matter what type of Coleman AC you have, you’re bound to run into problems at some point. However, nearly all of these problems are fixable and usually carry easy fixes.

One of the best ways to avoid big issues with your unit is to make sure that preventive maintenance is always a part of how you take care of things, particularly with your system filters.

If your filter is dirty, it can put a strain on things like airflow in your machine and affect the efficiency level within your device.

Here we will discuss some common issues and solutions for the Coleman air conditioner troubleshooting.

The remote control for the Coleman air conditioner does not work

First, try installing new batteries in the remote control.

If that doesn’t solve the problem and you can still cool down the house on your own, then it could be that the remote control is not working properly.

If this is the case, you should get a new one because otherwise, you won’t be able to change the settings of your air conditioner by yourself.

Remote control signals are received by an infrared receiver on the main control board. When the infrared receiver does not work, it will not be possible to operate the remote. Replace the main control board if you suspect it is defective.

The compressor on my Coleman air conditioner won’t run

The temperature control board ensures that the compressor functions correctly. The temperature control board may stop sending voltage to the compressor if it stops functioning properly.

Before replacing a defective temperature control board, make sure you check more commonly defective parts such as the compressor overload and capacitor. If everything checks out except for the temperature control board, replace it.

The thermostat monitoring air temperature will turn the AC and heating on when it gets too hot or cold at home.

The thermostat activates a switch when the temperature rises above a set point, allowing the fan and compressor to run. If the (air) thermostat is defective, you could notice that by seeing your home’s central AC/heating not working.

The Coleman air conditioner fan is not working

The dual shaft fan motor might be defective. The rotation of the dual shaft fan motor rotates both fan blades on either side of the motor.

One for drawing air over a condensing coil and the other for drawing air over an evaporator coil. To determine if the motor is defective, physically rotate the shaft of the motor to see if it’s loose or not working at all.

A bad relay board could prevent the fan motor from running. You should also inspect the more commonly defective parts-especially the fan motor capacitor and the motor itself-before replacing it.

A Coleman air conditioner makes a lot of noise

Once a compressor starts to break down, it becomes louder than normal. If this happens, it does not mean you need to immediately get rid of the compressor altogether.

Instead, you’ll want to look for a solution that makes your system quieter in one way or another.

Bearings on the fan motor or dual shaft fan motor are usually permanently lubricated. As the lubrication deteriorates over time, the motor becomes noisy. Replace the fan motor if this is the case.

There is a front and a back fan in the air conditioning system. Check both fans for damage, such as corrosion on motor housings or bent material. If such damage is present, replace the fan.
Confirm the fan is locked to the motor shaft. If the fan wobbles, tighten or replace the to lock it in place. If that doesn’t work, buy a new fan and try replacing it altogether.

A Coleman air conditioner will not turn off

If your air conditioner is producing significantly less cool air than usual, it may mean that your condenser coils are clogged.

If your home’s airflow is low, your system must work harder to cool it. Before cleaning the coils yourself, check them for debris using a vacuum hose attachment.

To fix this problem, unclog them with an inexpensive garden hose and a car washing brush.

The temperature control thermostat provides voltage to the fan motor and compressor. Sometimes, when a wire short circuits, it can cause problems such as sending continuous voltage to the compressor, causing it to run continuously.

To determine if this is happening, insert one probe of a multimeter in one terminal and the other probe in another terminal.

The Coleman air conditioner isn’t cooling

Air filters are designed to keep debris from entering your home’s HVAC system. It may not be possible for air to pass through a clogged air filter.

As a result of this, you could start needing more energy to cool your home, which could end up costing more money each month.

Stainless Steel Air Filters store impurities in a non-reactive coating rather than collecting them in fiber matting or foam sheets, unlike traditional paper filters that can fall apart with repeated cleanings.

 The coils will not be able to maintain the correct temperature if they are significantly dirty, and the compressor will run continuously to cool the room. To determine if the condenser coils are dirty, check them. Clean them if necessary.
