Another Dometic AC Acting Up
Thought I would spend some time in camper today so I went out and turned the AC on. I went out and came back in to find it not running and the breaker tripped in the camper. Reset breaker and it came back on and ran normal. I went outside and after a few minutes noticed the compressor was running but fan was not. Before I could get back in it quit and breaker tripped again. So I started troubleshooting. At the tsat I turn fan on low and hi and it runs. I switch tstat to cool and turn it down to 65. The unit comes on and fan is on hi and runs fine. I then increase tstat temp to about what temp is in camper. The fan tries to go from hi speed to low speed but it never does. I spin the squirrel cage fan slightly and it picks up speed and runs fine. I drop temp on tsat back to 60 and the fan speed goes from lo to hi without a problem.
I am able to duplicate fan speed problem almost every time when gong from hi to lo. The unit runs and cools fine otherwise. I am thinking either motor or control board. What is the best way to troubleshoot? Did the breaker trip because the compressor was running without the fan for a period of time? I did look at my PI and it said L1 was 24 amps at that time.
The unit is in sig with Dometic 15k AC. Any help is appreciated.
