Are coleman units quieter then the dometic units? Also my unit is not duct, just blows out at the base of the unit so im sure that contributes. Any feed back would be appreciated, thank you in advance
My living room a/c was loud and there weren't any mud dobbers mud on the blades throwing it out of balance. I found my inside plastic blower wheel wobbling and out of round. I ordered a new plastic blower wheel cost me $8.98 plus shipping.
I replaced the blower wheel and the thing is quieter than the bedroom 13.5k unit now. I did find when you tighten the shaft clamp on the plastic blower wheel to not over tighten it or it will distort the wheel and cause it to wobble. So just snug it up just enough as to not distort the wheel when it spins. Mine is All quiet now.
I'm sure they just tighten the crap out of those plastic wheels at the factory and when they do it causes the wheel to distort and wobble and that's where all the vibration is from.
hope that helps you and we can even watch and hear the TV just fine now with the A/C on high speed.
