SOURCE: Dometic Caravan Fridge 7271

Your refrigerant may have completely separated in the system. Shut of the gas, disconnect the electrical and remove refrigerator from the coach or if you have sufficient room inside set it on a clean area. This operation is what is called burping the system.
1. From the base roll it onto the door and wait five minutes.
2. roll it onto the top and wait five minutes.
3. Roll it on the back and wait five minutes.
4. Return it to the base and wait five minutes.

Reinstall it or test it on electrical. It should show signs of cooling in about 30 minutes in the freezer compartment if the system is not plugged in the boiler.

Igniting a Dometic gas fridge

    Electronic Ignition
    1. Open gas cylinder or pressure regulating valve
    2. Turn on Electronic ignitor switch
    3. Turn gas control knob to the MAX position, press and hold down
    4. After ignition, hold down knob for a further 15 seconds before releasing. The neon light will stop flashing
    Piezo Ignition
    1. Open gas cylinder or pressure regulating valve
    2. Turn gas control knob to the MAX position, press and hold down
    3. After approximately 10-15 seconds
      press Piezo knob several times until pilot light a lit
    4. After ignition, hold down knob for a further 15 seconds before releasing
  1. Check the Pilot light is alight
  2. The flame can be controlled by aperture ©
    Should no ignition occur, repeat the ignition process after 1 minute
    (This could take longer than 10 seconds if the unit has been out of operation for a prolonged period or after replacing the gas cylinder. (Cause: air in the lines)
  3. Once sufficient refrigeration has been obtained in the cooling tank at the MAX position, the control knob should be turned to the MIN position by low outside temperatures or when the refrigerator is only lightly loaded respectively the ambient temperature is below +18c in order to avoid over freezing the contents.
I hope this helps you...

Regards

Wouter...

SOURCE: Norcold Fridge will not work on LP gas while traveling.

One of two problems. The auto switch is bad or the lower circuit board is not doing its job. You can call norcold technical or take the board to a service center and have it checked with the tester they should have. The lower board retails for 176.00. I looked at my tech file and it is a little vague on your particular situation. If I were repairing your fridge I would take the smart route and call technical. Hope you get your problem solved. If you need more help please feel free.

Try running a diagnostic defrost cycle test and see what happens

Three year old Dometic RM 2555, 3 way Frig/freezer has failed on 240VAC however works on Gas. I suspect the PCB is faulty


Hello,
My rm2555 has just failed on 240 volt. But not 12 volt.
It turned out to be the 240 volt element .
Fairly easy to replace. If you have a multimeter test the resistance, mine was open circuit.
Does yours work on 12volt?
The two heater elements (ie 12v and 240v ) are on the right when viewed from behind with four large wires coming out, plus an earth wire. There are labels on some of the wires. The 12 volt conects into a terminal connector, where as the 240 volt is fitted with spade connectors and is attached to the printed circuit board, under the white plastic cover. The elements are "L" shaped and are just pushed down in down next to each other. The cover seems to unclip fairly easily to enable removal.
Hope this helps.

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)

Dometic Refrigerator Model RM 2820 Stopped working purchased 5-4-2004 . Tom Collins


Hi Tom,

If your fridge quit working altogether, check your DC fuses in the fuse box, as well as the back of the fridge under the black plastic cover (3 amp). Though the fridge uses LP and 120vac to cool, it is controlled by 12 volts.

1 Answer

Fridge works fine on shore power. When turn gas


What model fridge? Sound like you have a bad 12 volt heat element or there is a possibility the board is bad but the likely is the heat element.
You can remove the cover on the circuit board and unplug the 12 volt element. Do an Ohms reading on the element. Should be 35-35 Ohms. If that is ok Turn the fridge on and with a VOM check for 12 volt power on the terminals the heat element was plugged into. If there is no power the board is bad. There is also a possibility the upper board is bad. I would start with the lower circuit board. Check for power at the heat element terminals if you have power there then I would say you need to replace the heat element. The heat element is mounted in the boiler tube and just slides uo to remove it. Good luck
Thanks for using Fixya
