    OK, check to be sure the flue is cleared and let it run. It will take it a bit to get going.

  • Richard Roth

    The back side coils should get hot. Just the pilot is lit? The burner should light to start the cooling. Turn it all the way down to the coldest temp.

    its been on 2 hours and the coils and cooling unit still cold not even warm..

SOURCE: I have a Dometic RV fridge that wont get cold. it

It sounds like your cooling unit is going out. Here's a couple of things to check. Do you smell any ammonia when you open either one of the doors? When you look at the rear of the fridge, do you see anything that looks like rusty water that has run down any of the metal tubes and dried up? If the answer to either one of these is "yes", then youll need to start looking for a new fridge or replace the cooling unit on the one that you have.

You need to make sure that you follow the manufacturer's recommendations for using the unit with each specific power source. It's important that you have the all switches in the proper position, based on what power source you're using.

Here's the manual for your model, save a copy and print it out and take some time to review the section #3 Operating Instructions on page 6.

SOURCE: Dometic rv fridge runs fine on elec, lights on gas

It is key that all control switches are in the correct position, depending on what power source you are using, gas, electric, etc. If the switches are not in the proper setting, the unit will not operate.

Here's the manual for your fridge that should be printed out for your use and reference (and reading enjoyment). It has all the info needed to operate and troubleshoot it.

Typically, when using any gas appliance with a pilot light, the sensor has to first be hot enough to trigger it to allow the safety gas shutoff to open and allow the gas to flow to the pilot/burner. Follow the instructions and you should be all set.

Temperature does play a big part in the efficiency of the fridge. The condenser at the back of the fridge needs cool air flow to allow gas vapour to be converted back into a liquid.again.

I left my Dometic RM2500 fridge in the gas postion for two weeks ( Ishut off the gas at the bottle instead of switching the fridge off),now the light won't come on to light.


Check the batteries in the coach for OK. If you left the fridge on for that long without being plugged in, your batteries have drained down. If the batteries are OK, check the fuse in the control board mounted on the back of the fridge. If you have no lights, then you definitely have a 12V problem!!

Hope this helps,

You need to unpush the gas button on the front control. If the gas button is pushed in, then it is trying to run on gas and with the tank empty, it is unable to light. That is why the check light is coming on. If you turn the gas side off and have it on auto, it should switch to the AC side and work fine.

Hope this helps,

Dometic rm2611 quit on the road today all lights


If the fridge is complete dead (no lights no fan, no compresor,etc.) looks like there's not power in the unit.Check if theres power in the oulet if you know how , if you don't put the fridge in an oulet that you know is power , if still doing nothing probably the cord is broken or burned and the power doesn't go throught it from the oulet to the fridge.
