Dometic refrigerator does not cool?
You need to check the Condenser coils, these are copper coils of tubing usually located on the back of the unit near the ground. They need to be free of all dust and grease to work at maximumefficiencyand it is recommended to clean them every 6 to 10 months. If those coils are already clean, the next thing to do is check the evaporator fan(The fan inside the unit). See if it's running. If it's not, check the coils behind it. If the coils are frozen up then you probably have to change out the fan motor.If they aren't frozen up then there may be a refrigerant leak or a bad compressor*. In order to legally reclaim, recharge, or test refrigerants you need a special certification from the EPA. If you need to do so I recommend you call in a certified technician.
If the lights, fans, and compressor aren't working at all, check your fuse/breaker box to see if anything is tripped or blown.
If the lights are on but nothing is working, The thermostat may be having problems.
*To replace the compressor you need to reclaim and recharge the refrigerants from the system.

My Dometic RGE 400
The 1st thing u need to do is clean and adjust the burner, if u hear it it is carboned up, then once it is clean adjust air/gas vent until the flame is blue with a slight orange tip, that should do the trick. Do this service and let me know if it works better.

UNPLUG AND TURN IT UPSIDE DOWN FOR A DAY OR TWO. YOU MIGHT HAVE AMONIA CRISTALS BUILT UP IN YOUR PIPES. TURN IT BACK AND SWITCH ON YOU GAS BURNER AGAIN. THIS WILL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM. IF NOT, GET A TECHNICIAN TO CHECK IT OUT.

You need a new cooling unit. That ammonia smell means that your heating unit is shot, needs to be replaced, and there are a coupla ways to go here.
1) Order up a rebuilt (or new) online, and replace it yourself. (Handyman skill level:fair.) $500.
