Considering a replacement of my rotary Aire

Post by Murphysox » Wed Jun 26, 2019 4:56 pm

The current rotary aire by Westerbeke is acting up with a ghost in the machine. It will work fine then decide to change functions on it's own and buttons are no longer working until they start working again after 10 minutes or so for some unknown reason.

It seems no one has parts for these things in the Annapolis area and when you see the parts online for sale they want big $$$ for non-returnable electrical parts.

I would love to try a new controller but its $425 plus tax and shipping chance of it working.

I'm about to order a new Dometic 16k btu

Has anyone made an a/c unit switch? What brand did you buy and how do you like it?

Thanks!!!

I was able to keep the system working throughout the summer. The odd behavior I still have is when I try to adjust the temp. setting up or down, the system often will do other functions like go into dehumidifier mode. When I leave everything alone, it works fine.

If anyone replaces their system (for other reasons) please save the interior black control panel and I will buy it from you.
