I've heard a lot of good things about Colman, especially their Q model (extra quiet). Next time I'm going with Colman Q series.
But for now - The GOOD NEWS is I finally got this thing running! And it works! It blows out 30º colder than it takes in.
I put up a posting on facebook marketplace where I found the thing asking if anyone wanted to buy it or could help fix it. I got a call from a guy who walked me though the process of hot wiring it. Bypassing the electronic control board and just connecting up the compressor and a fan wire. It works! It works well. It's clean and blows.
The guy wants me to build my own controller with relays and switches. But I'm going to risk buying a new board. The time it takes to make a controller... it's worth trying another board. Much simpler and nice blue glow.
Thanks Mike and everyone for your research and work helping me.
