AirXcel Air Conditioning Units aka Coleman Fan Blade Breakdown !!

Just an FYI for all you out there running your A/C down south that if you have a Coleman A/C on your RV ,you need to go up top and take the cover off and look at the blade to make sure that the serial # shows a "D" in it .

If it has a "B" and or "C" in the number it needs to be replaced . My friend has a 2016 33aa Allegro Red and one blade on one of his units blew apart !! Talked with Tiffin and the indicated that they are replacing the old blades as RV's are serviced . You will need to contact AirXcel the manufacture of the units via Eric Botts at ebotts@airxcel.com to discuss replacement.

My traveling partner is have two blades shipped down to Yuma where it is currently 97 deg.

Good Luck

No info on the type of air conditioner or model. This info and some good pix can be found at http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...re-105823.html

I had an AirXcel squirrel cage blower blow up in January. Not this AC or model. Nothing bigger than a quarter was left. It's still spitting plastic out of the ducts.

Well that's pretty suspicious. This problem was well known back in 2015 model year, and my coach was built before his and has D blades already on it. Hard to imagine that some stock is that old.

The problem with the condenser fan started in late 2013-2014 when owners started complaining that the new A/C units were too noisy. AirExcel started with a series of blade redesigns to quiet things down which lead to a series of exploding fans. All fixed now but there could be intermediate fans still out there. There was no recall, just replace when they failed.

I never replaced mine and they remained noisy and still functioning until I sold the coach.

I just checked both of my units. They have 6 bladed fans. Is there a significant reduction in noise with the 3 blade fans? I always thought the most noise was from the circulating fans. Might be worth replacing.
