SOURCE: Dometic Americana Freezer/Fridge not cooling

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.

SOURCE: Camper fridge dont cool

I also had the same Model Make. I removed my fridge and placed it upside down, occasionally shaking fridge within a 24 hr period. This seemed to re-mix the ammonia solution and the fridge is working.
This may work for you but look for yellow stains if you see any your fridge is leaking and would require repair.

SOURCE: dometic rm4223 has leaked coolant. The

You need a new cooling unit. That ammonia smell means that your heating unit is shot, needs to be replaced, and there are a coupla ways to go here.

1) Order up a rebuilt (or new) online, and replace it yourself. (Handyman skill level:fair.) $500.

2) Go to an RV repair shop and have that done $700.00 - $100.00

3) Buy a new fridge. $1000.00 ++

I have a dometic RM 2862 refrigerator and smelled ammonia and then heated up but no signs of leaks, is the cooling unit bad?


Is it still working? If you can smell ammonia, I would say that there is a very small leak. Over time, the fridge will lose its efficiency and take longer and longer to cool down. Eventually, it wont cool at all once all the gas has escaped. From what I remember of Dometic fridges, is that they used to supply exchange refrigeration units. You remove the entire refrigeration system and swap it for a new or rebuilt system. It worked out a lot cheaper than buying a new fridge.

Shut it off and get it checked. Ammonia is dangerous as I am sure you are aware. Ammonia smell is an indication of a leaking cooling unit. Time for a new fridge. Sorry.

I have a Dometic Rm 2862 2-way about five years old.


Ammonia smell means cooling unit is done. Just double check on dometic site in case of any recalls that may apply. (dometicusa.com)

Model RM 2604, cannot get it to run. The person I bought the trailer could not either. I just bought the thing, so I am still learning about it.


dometic refrigerators work on an closed circuit absorbtion system
to work it must be level and, must have either a flame or, an electric heating element to make it cool

Dometic RM 2800 Refrigerator will not cool. freezer is some cool. this is on LP gas


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.

I have a Dometic RV fridge that wont get cold. It is a model RM 2401. It easily lights on gas, the coils get hot and it makes a little gurgling noise but does not get cold. Can this be recharged?

Fridge stopped cooling and after about 3 hours had a strong odor of amonia


this is serious problem you have to deal with. since you said you said you smelt ammonia like odour one of the cooling tubes (evaporator ) should have been broken are should contain a small opening or something.do not switch on the refrigerator untill you repair it with an authorized service personnel.do not try disassemble the cooling tubes yourself since incorrect repairing will cause the coolant to evaporate easily and it will cost heavy to replace it.!!!
