Just bought my first RV(used) and the fridge does not work.It has power and also gas.The on/off light comes on and also the auto light functions normal.The check light even lights after a few minutes when there is no gas.The unit just does not cool at all.Checked fuses and all good.ANy suggestions?
There is a factory recall on these refrigerators. Call Dometic 1800-544-4881 and give them your serial number and model number. Going through the same thing right now. On my Fleetwood Gearbox. Hope that helps. Robert
Hopefully it is only a heating element. Supply gas and see if it holds flame if it does it should heat the coils all the way across. If it does not your coil is most likely bad. Is there any yellow powder any where on the back or inside if so also a sign of a bad coil.

The fridge needs a 12 volt DC source to operate properly, which should be connected at the back of the fridge, outside behind cover. Check all fuses in your fuse panel as well. The upper controls are powered by 12 volt DC system, and that's what tells the fridge what to do.. (battery or converter)
Largest problem is with the cooling unit going bad on these unit at about your units age. But first check your 12 volt fuses and make sure both the fuses in the back of the refer and the fuse in the power distribution panel are good Must have 12 volt for the gas to work
First thing to check is that the control switches are in the proper position, since some RV fridges require a particular placement for the fridge to operate on different power souces.
Check your owner's manual for troubleshooting steps for your specific fridge, beyond that, here's link to a site that provides a step-by-step troubleshooting guide complete with active links for each potential issue.
