1. Electrical

Use only a qualified electrician to hook up your mobile office!

  • Minimum Electrical Requirements: 220 volts, 100 amps, single-phase service.
    • Is the unit hooked up to 220 volts with proper size wire?
    • Was the electricity hooked up by a qualified electrician?
    • Is the main breaker on at the breaker panel?
  • Connection Information.
    • If the incoming voltage is less than 216V, the Primary Power Tap at the transformer must be changed from the “240V” spade to “208V” spade. 
    • Failure to do so will cause a control voltage of 18v or less, which will cause erratic (or No) operation in the contactors and relays. 
    • Will also cause thermostat failure.

Note: Certain types of breakers appear to be on but actually are off. Switch fully off and then on again.

  • Some lights come on, some do not…
    • Check all switches. If bulbs are burned out, replace(customer’s responsibility). If bulbs are in good condition and still don’t work, call for service.
  • All fluorescent lights are flickering…
    • Light ballasts are cold; flickering usually stops after a few minutes.
  • In one of the light fixtures, both bulbs are flickering…
    • Change one bulb at a time by removing and installing a new bulb. Make sure you install a new lamp. If it does not cure the problem, call for service.
  • No power in the receptacles…
    • Check breaker at panel box. If the breaker is on and there is still no power, call for service.
  • The breaker keeps tripping in one of the receptacles…
    • Are there too many cords plugged into the same receptacle causing an overload in the circuit?

Remember – to operate mobile office properly it must be grounded.

2a. Central Air Conditioner

  • The air conditioner does not operate…
    • Is the voltage correct (220 volts)?
    • Is the hookup done properly?
    • Are there loose wires?
    • Check circuit breaker at panel box.
    • Check safety switch located outside adjacent to the AJC.
    • Check fuses in the safety switch box.

Note: Only certain A/C models have internal fuses.

  • A/C is running, but no air is coming out of diffusers…
    • Open ceiling diffusers and/or registers.
    • Make sure there are no obstructions in the air louvers or grilles (located on front wall inside).
    • Make sure the filter is clean. 
  • Air conditioner does not operate…
    • Is the voltage correct (220 volts)?
    • Is the hookup done properly?
    • Is the circuit breaker tripped?
  • Air conditioner does not cool as it should…
    • Are you operating thermostat correctly?
    • Temperature control may not be set low enough.
    • Turn knob to lower setting.
    • The room may have been very hot when A/C was first turned on; allow additional time for it to cool down.

How to Change an A/C Filter

The filter should be washed with warm water or vacuumed every 30 days. Under normal conditions, filters must be changed every 60 days. Under extreme conditions, change every 30 days.

Water dripping outside is normal, especially in very hot and humid weather conditions.
