Brisk air to Brisk air II ?
Our rear 1998 Brisk Air 15,000 btu unit (59516.601 - ducted) is dying. Compressor start issues. Added a Hard-start SPP6 and it helps, but still has issues and won't always start. This unit has heat strip and analog thermostat (i.e. switches and a slide temperature control)
Decided to bite the bullet and buy a new one.
Found a new Brisk Air II upper unit (B59516) on line and can get it shipped to me for $590.20. That is over $100 cheaper than any place else I can find one, even locally without shipping charges. From what I found, it will work for ducted on non-ducted and analog or digital thermostat, depending on user requirements. Nothing lets me pick what configuration I want.
Question is, will it bolt up to my old ducted lower and will the thermostat work?
Does the lower (ceiling) unit determine thermostat requirements?
I have requested info from the seller (commercial) but, of course, their service/support is closed on weekends.
Thanks in advance!
The upper unit isn't really an issue. But it might not plug into your old control board, I'm not sure.
If it won't, then you'll need a new control board/thermostat kit.
Agree. Start with Dometic. Ask them what units are compatible with your existing control board and thermostat. When I replaced a unit (upgrade, 15k) on our 1999 rig, there was only one AC that was compatible.. Otherwise you're looking at a control and thermostat change...
I emailed Doemtic about my issue. Gave them my old ac number and the new one I am looking at.
According to Dometic, it is a direct replacement. As long as my current thermostat is working (which it is) I can replace, plug in and go.
Looks like I am buying a new upper unit.
BTW, I am going to trouble shoot the thermostat, to be sure, before I buy the ac.
Thanks for the help!
