Default My Basement AC Control Board Failed!

I had to replace one of the boards this weekend, luckily I had a spare one. Where can I find one of these boards to have a spare? It's an SCS forced air basement system in my beloved luxurious newell coach.







bus conversion like a Prevost, Eagle, Holiday Rambler, MCI, Bluebird Wanderlodge, Newmar, Country Coach, Millennium, Liberty, custom motor coaches.

Paul,

Don't know what brand AC you have, but on a lark, these guys might have what you need:

Paul,

Do you have basement ACs?

If you do send your circuit board to: http://www.acsindustrial.com/printed...ard-repair.php

If you want a spare circuit board Newell Coach parts department has them in stock. They are on sale this week; $426 includes tax, shipping & handling.

Take a look at your manuals. You should have an owner's manual for the A/C units. I'm thinking that you will need to get model and serial numbers for the units to be sure that you get the correct circuit boards.

LOL, I have had to replace a relay on two of my boards. 16 bucks total.

Paul, while the tech is in the control box, please check the wiring connections. This seems to be a common problem with the Newells. I have found loose wiring connections in all three of my control boxes. One of them was a near fire.

Richard,

Where are these 3 control boxes that you speak of located?

When I had a burnt control board on my bedroom AC I tightened the wire connectors and any thing else I could find that might be loose. They were all tight! I had to replace the circuit board; it was burnt too badly.

I also checked the tightness of the wires that clip onto the top of the compressors. Everything was good and tight.

Paul,

The company that built the AC units (Southern Climate Systems) is out of business. Another company, Victory Climate Systems has bought out SCS inventory and I believe that they also build the circuit boards that we need to fix our AC units. Only problem is they told me that they will only sell directly to Newell or another supplier, not to individuals like you and me.

Many years ago, I purchased a circuit board from SCS for $234. But the new price is what I quoted above. So I guess you could say you can either send your circuit board off to be repaired or bite the bullet and buy one from Newell.

The only company that sells a new board is Newell. There may be others, but I don't know who they are.
