Dometic air conditioner and heat pump 2016 3051s, what model?

Dealer cheesed me on the manual for my dometic air conditioner and heat pump. Squinting through the cover of the unit it says mfg number is b59196.711JO.

Dometic website has similar numbers but nothing that matches exactly. Can anyone please tell me what Dometic unit they put in this model so i can find the manual.

Your response is appreciated.

I don't think I got a manual for my A/C and heat pump. There is an installation manual but not sure what that would get you. What info are you after? There is nothing to the operation of the unit other than keeping the filter clean. The key to its operation is the thermostat. Did you get a manual for the thermostat?

I downloaded a manual for the thermostat. I was after the usual user info; troubleshooting, maintenance, warranty registration and the like.

thanks for your response.

I think pages 12-14 of the thermostat manual is all you will find. There is an installation manual for your series 591 unit, but it is of little help.
Have you figured out the Hi, Lo, Auto settings for your fan on all 4 operational settings (fan, AC, Furnace, Heat Pump)? That is what most people have trouble figuring out.

If you could explain how to get the HI, LO and AU settings I would appreciate it. All I see is the temp, but I do recall seeing AU during the PDI. If there is a heat pump setting other than full blast, that would be helpful. Thanks!

It is hard to explain briefly, but the basic point is that you can only adjust the fan speed settings when the thermostat is set to fan. Use the temp + and - buttons to select the desired Hi, Lo, or Auto setting that you want the fan to operate on when you are using the A/C, the furnace, or the heat pump (if so equipped). If you desire a high or low speed when the air and heat are running then select that speed. The fan will run continuously at that speed even when the compressor and furnace are not operating. If you select the Auto fan speed then the fan will only operate when the compressor or furnace are on and will shut off when they reach the desired temp. I use a Hi fan speed for the A/C during the hot summer days and turn to the Lo fan speed at night. That way the fan is always operating helping to circulate cool air. I only use the Auto setting for the furnace and heat pump in the winter, as I do not want cold air circulating when the heating elements are not operating. I suggest, after playing with the fan settings on the thermostat, that you go back and read the operators manual for a more complete description of what I've said.

Thanks for the explanation! There was no manual covering the thermostat. I'll have to check on that. We are using auto with heat which is fine. It has a heat anticipatory problem. It get too cold, the heat comes on for too long and it gets too hot. On our home thermostat, this setting is adjustable. I'll have to check in that too but there are no user adjustments apparent here.
