Common Swamp Cooler Repairs

Common swamp cooler repairs we respond to throughout the summer are listed and described below. Some of these repairs can be reduced or eliminated with proper maintenance.


Busted water lines or breaks in the lines are a common repair we see. To avoid unexpected water line breaks they should be inspected for signs of replacement: cracks, bubbles, and rusting around connections.


Hard water is a big problem for swamp coolers. Scale buildup can clog water lines and pads. It is essential that you clean and removes hard water buildup prior to starting your cooler for summer. If your water lines are clogged they will not be able to saturate the pads and you won’t get adequate cooling. Scale build-up can also corrode the connections to the float, pump and other mechanical parts causing them to stop working correctly. Talk to our professionals about ways to reduce or eliminate hard water.


Fan belts breakdown from normal wear and tear over time. However, a broken fan belt will prevent the fan from blowing air through your home. Typically when this happens you won’t have any air flowing through your home. You’ll notice that it won’t be cooling at all. When starting up your cooler the fan should be inspected for tears and cracks and replaced as needed.


If your water pump stops working it will not allow water to flow through the swamp cooler. A water pump can fail if it gets corroded from hard water. The pump should be inspected and tested prior to the start of each season.


Mechanical parts wear down over time and contribute to airflow problems and swamp cooler repairs. Some of these repairs can be avoided with regular maintenance. Over time the motor, fan, and pump can fail from normal wear and tear. That is why maintenance is so vital to avoid unexpected breakdowns and failures.


If your swamp cooler will not turn on at all and has no power you should check your fuse and breaker box first. If the fuse is broken or the breaker is tripped its time to call a professional. There is probably something that is short-circuiting that is causing the power to fail. TLC’s experts are experienced with fixing these problems and we also have licensed electricians available to assist with any electrical problems.
