Common Swamp Cooler Repairs

Some common swamp cooler repairs we respond to throughout the summer are listed below. Some of these repairs can be reduced with proper maintenance.

Water Line Breaks

Busted water lines or breaks in the lines are a common repair we see. Water lines should be checked before starting the cooler for summer.

Water Pump Problems

A broken water pump can be a problem especially if you have hard water.

Normal Wear & Tear

Mechanical parts wear & tear contribute to air flow problems and swamp cooler repairs. Some can be avoided with regular maintenance.

Blockages Or Corrosion

Scale buildup or corroded and rusted parts can cause your swamp cooler to stop working or blockage in the water lines.

Broken Fan Belt

Fan belts break down from normal wear and tear over time. A broken fan belt will prevent the fan from blowing.

Swamp Cooler Won't Start

Check the fuse and breaker if your swamp cooler won’t start. If the fuse is broken or the breaker is tripped its time to call a professional.

How To Check Your Air Flow in Your Home

Your swamp cooler’s cooling effectiveness relies on humidity levels outside. If these levels rise too high your cooler will have a harder time lowering your home’s temperature. Times like these are when many homeowners feel their swamp cooler may be broken. The tips mentioned above are described in detail in the video. If you do these steps and still have problems with your cooler please call TLC or a professional to repair your swamp cooler.
