I have a Dometic Gas/Ac refrdgerator in my camper. We had not used it for a couple of years, then when we did plug it in to AC it froze everything in it.
I was set on 2 on the setting on the outside front of it.
Is there something that may be clogged or plugged that would make it run continully, to make it freeze.
We had found muddauber nests in most of the other vents, I.E. furnace, water heater, etc.
Is there something we can check ?

Check your fuses and circuit breakers to see if any are tripped or blown. If you are handy with a test meter you can check for power at the refrigerator control panel. There will be a vented cover outside behind your fridge and there are two leads going to a heating element. You can check for power or continuity through the element.
Hello, Inside you fridge part (not the Freezer) you will find your cooling fins,and on you fins there is a white piese of plastic and in this plastic there is a probe this will adjust you temp. by slidding it up and down.but it hasen't been touched you may have a faulty probe.acesses to plug is in rear of fridge in a black box (printed circit board)located outside of camper,you may need a qualified person to install.
Dometic refrigerators don't have the best thermostats, especially the one with multiple source (AC/DC/Propane) . They are also prone to be more sensitive when the propane was just topped up and the pressure is high.
Don't get me wrong, I think the Dometic is a great refrigerator for campers, you just have to learn to deal with its issues.
Also make sure that you have one fuel source selected at a time, and not all of them!
It could be as simple as a blown fuse at the fridge. Also check to make sure you have turned on the electric switch that allows the fridge to run on AC. Note, you can only operate the fridge on EITHER gas OR electric, but not both sources at the same time, thus, you have to turn off the gas switch before you can run on electric.
When this unit is running on electricity, it has to have the thermostat set for it to run.
Here's a link to the Dometic manual for your model.
You more than likely need to replace the control cable between the upper and lower board. It comes as a kit with the upper board. You can also do a bypass test by unplugging your thermoster from the circuit board. The thermoster is the temperature control for the refrigerator nothing to do with the freezer. email@example.com www.coachtech.info 734 777 6432
