RE: Coleman Mach 15 problems......need some help troubleshooting

You may have plugged your motor home into a home outlet that is also on a circuit with another appliance. That would cause the home breaker to trip if the total load on the breaker was exceeded. Plug your motor home into an outlet with nothing else drawing power from that circuit. Make sure to use a heavy-duty adapter and short heavy duty extension cord. Try to start the AC again. If it still trips the breaker, replace the capacitors with the original capacitors. See if the original problem returns. If it works, you may have wired the replacement capacitor incorrectly. When replacing capacitors, polarity marking must be observed, not the location of wires. Your air conditioner may have low voltage protection and turns off when voltage is to too low. In a camp ground, many people using air conditioners at the same time would causes the camp's AC power to drop. If the compressor still does not turn on, check voltage to the compressor. If no voltage, trace it back to where it loses voltage. If voltage is good, the compressor would be defective. Good luck with your trouble shooting.

RE: Gen shuts off unless “Start” held down

It could be the carburetor fuel shut of valve is stuck in the off condition. Follow the wires to the carburetor and it should lead you to the valve. Disconnect the wires, unscrew the valve. Clean and lubricate it so the rod moves easily. -OR- replace it with a new one.

RE: Onan generator shutting down after releasing start button

I had a similar problem. The problem was the fuel shut off solenoid on the carb. It got stuck in the shut off position. Clean or replace it and it should be good again. Having a low RV fuel tank could be a problem too. The gen gets its gas from the RV tank. The pipe that the gen gets the fuel does not go to the bottom of the RV tank. This keeps the RV from running out of gas by the generator use. There should be enough gas left to get to a gas station.
