    My parents have the same problem there is a recall on all these units see this link http://www.motorhomemagazine.com/boards/...

    they are having the same problem Dometic will only send the warranty parts for their faulty refrigerators once you have called a service technician out the repair the parts their faulty part made go bad but they won't pay for it the technician sais it will cost around $1100 to repair the refrigerator you can be a brand new refrigerator same model for 900 at PPL RV online their are lots of complaint sites about Dometic and this same problem and after is all said and done their warranty part doesn't correct the problem it is simply a precaution so when the refrigerator starts fire that the control board will shut off

The recall has nothing to do with your fridge not working. Your cooling unit has gone bad. And yes you can get a new fridge for a few hundred more than a new cooling unit. And sooner or later PPL motorhomes will run out of their cheap stock. The fridges they have are out of production. I know I am a Dometic dealer.

What do I check to fix my Dometic Americana refrigerator. It won't start using electric or gas.


Fist off before you get crazy replacing things make sure the camper is level when testing this. Gas will not run to it if you are not level. Also make sure the gas is turned on and make sure you have selected automatic or gas only on your fridge. Also give it about an hour before you test the temp. These take a bit longer to start feeling cool. If all of that does not work you will need to check the refrigerant, igniter(for the gas side) and the compressor. Also make sure the fuses are good to go at the main panel and that the breakers are in the "on" position

Water dispenser line frozen, items freezing in fridge side. Freezer constantly running/blowing


Your freezer is what actually cools the refrigerator. The cool air enters from that spot on the top left of the freezer. Make sure that isn't blocked. It's sounds like the thermostat that controls the air flow from the freezer to the refrigerator isn't working or the air flow control device is stuck.

Either way if you can, unload and unplug the unit. This will do to things. First it will reset the circuits that control everything and secondly if the air flow control is frozen thawing out the refrigerator and freezer may free it up.

Westinghouse freestyle fridge &freezer work but warm after being turned off fo 90 days


What happens in that 72 hours is the evaporator coil get's so much frost built up on it that the fan in the evap. freezer fan has no where to circulate the cold air (where the cold is produced). Basically you have a restriction between freez/fridg. sections you have defrost problem> It is one of three things d heater,d t stat, or your d timer.I need the model # to tell you what my sugestions would be and where to start.
