In the back of the unit next to the compressor is a little white box. It has a circuit board in it. I moved the unit out took off covering and put my hand on the white box. I could feel it vibrating and so I went to and got a new circuit board, and problem fixed. I think the part was around $90.00.

The refrigerator right side door swings all the way around when you open it (180 degrees). Shouldn't it stop half way? How can this be corrected?


Your frig should be properly leveled left to right and front to back when it was installed. If it is done correctly, when you open the door it should stop where-ever you stop it and it should stay there until you close it. If it swings either closed or open when you let go of the handle, it's not level. The door stop is there to keep the door from opening too far.

Hi,

Can you pull the gasket back slightly (flat screwdriver or dull knife, don`t cut/rip the gasket) from the side of either fridge door and tell me if the cabinet light is on inside ? I need to know if the light is on without opening either door.

I`ll watch for your reply.

My check light keeps coming on my dometic ref in my 5th wheel


I have had this problem also. My experience has been that the propane line to the frig has air in it, especially after not being used for a while. Here's what I do:

1) Make sure the propane tank valve is open.
2) Light one of the burners on the stove. This may take a while but keep the gas on and a lighter at the burner. This is safe becuase as the air purges from the line it just blows the flame (from the ligher) around. Then when the air is purged the gas lights. Let the burner run for a couple of minutes. This sounds a bit odd, but what you are doing is bringing the "gas" close to the frig. The frig does not have to purge all that air as you have already done most of the purging by getting the burner to light. The facory setting for the frig is to stop trying to light after 45 seconds, and the "Check" light comes on.
3) Now try the frig. It may a couple times, but it should light and work fine.

I have found that this technique also helps with lighting the hot water.

Freezer door won't stay shut


This indicates that you do not have good airflow and return airflow between your freezer and refrigerator sections. That is why the pressure from closing one door is causing the other one to pop open.

Check the drain tube on the back of the machine to make sure it is not clogged or blocked with frozen water inside. Also check any return air flow vents inside the unit for clear ice.

I found that they rewired the 12 volt supply, red wire, thru a heat safety switch on the burner unit and it was open instead of being closed and cut off the main 12 volt supply to the control board. I connected a jumper wire around the new switch and the frig works . either the new switch is bad or too close to the heating unit.
