    When I started by RV refrigerator for the first time this season, I turned on the auto button, and the frig began operating but with gas even though plugged into electricity. Electrical did not kick in at all. Checked fuses and and plug ins, but they are okay. I turned off the gas to see if electrical would kick in and ignitor wanted to light.

    I have a Dometic RM1350 MX fridge in my 5th wheel trailer. When you turn on the fridge it will go on for about 1 minute then give an E0 error. I have checked the connections at the back of the fridge and on the eyebrow piece above the fridge. All connections are tight. This error is the same whether I try to run the fridge on gas or auto. The E0 error means that the control board is not getting communications from the eyebrow.

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.

    When you test it on gas it will take a while before you feel the coils hot to the left of the burn chamber for the unit to get to full temp is 24 hrs

Dometic refrigerator RM 2652 is not working

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

I have a rv with the Dometic RM2852 refridg. It works fine on gas, but when I switch to AC input the gas turns off like normally should but the refridg does not cool. The Auto light is on, 120VAC is OK at...

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.

Here's a copy of the manual for your fridge model that you can download and print for free, just in case you don't have yours handy.

Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!

RV refrigerator works fine on AC power. Burns for 30 seconds on gas power then shuts off.

tap on the gas valve with a wrench,not too hard but not too light about 10 times,the valve is probably sticky from not being used,re-light and see what happens.

The controls for Models RM2612, RM2812, RM2652 and RM2852 are unique to these models. They
are NOT interchangeable with any other models.
If you suspect mismatched part numbers, compare the part numbers on parts to the ones listed below
to ensure a proper match.
The RM2612 with Serial Number 41900000 or higher will have Version III controls as original
The RM2812, RM2652 and RM2852 should have only Version Ill controls as original equipment.
