Domestic Brisk Air 2

I have a 13.5 Brisk Air 2 that is brand new. It is connected to its own 30 amp line and blows directly into my bedroom. The AC cools, but the compressor cycles on for maybe 3-5 minutes then kicks off. It will do this all day long. It seems like it should get colder than what it does. My bigger unit will run all day blowing cold air and keeps the unit a good 7-8 degrees cooler than the 13.5. Does this sound normal to you AC guys or do I have a problem?

TL.

is the bedroom unit on a wall thermostat like the rear unit or are controls on the AC itself?

might be normal operation for that type of unit. Since its cooling way less of an area, it will not take as long to cool to set temp and cycle off.

Dave,

It just seems that I should be able to get it down colder than what it is. Seems as though the thermostat is set to high or something.

We have one with the controls on it in the front bedroom of our fifth wheel. It runs until you shut it off. Have you checked the freeze control?
