I had the same thing happen once. I snapped off and on all of the breakers and everything worked again. Don't know why, and it has not happened since.

well it pays to do service on your equipment. have been in the process of replacing the ac with a power efficient unit but no drip pan. this fix for my problem is the blower motor has oil tubes on the front of the motor and the rear. a few drops of oil and the motor will run .
the blower motor in the bath stopped running gave it a shot of oil and now is running again. just remove the two screws on the pie pan and pull the squarrel cage off and oil on top at the bearing. lol

Your AC has a compressor start capactor and a fan start capactor they are known to fail. Compressor comes on then shuts down as the outside cooling fan failed to start.
This happened to me camping and since I could get at the fan with out taking the unit apart or the shroud off I waited a few minutes had the wife turn the AC back on. I gave the blade a gentle push and it worked the rest of the weekend.
In most cases both capactors are in the same housing so you replace both capactors.

the problem was the blower motor was gummed up . after a bit of oil it works just fine. if that didnt work i was going to do the motor start caps. in most cases that would be a good place to start. lol

probably should start a new thread but what to heck.
i called coleman today and talked about units that would fit my drip pan . it appears i might be able to get the two ac i want to work in my pans after all.
i want to replace the two i have with the 13500 power saver units as they only need 10 amps to run . would save my genset and i could run both off my 30 amp service.
i pased the model no to a friend who has i think two units and we will see if they match up.
will have to get a new celing unit to make it work cant use the old ones. like some one posted where did the yellow go. one of my celing unit shroud is a bright yellow.
alan
i will post the results. but if you dont have the coleman pans you out of luck they are nla. lol
