Question about Dometic RGE400 Top Freezer Refrigerator

My 1995 Dometic 2611 runs OK all day but not at night

My 1995 Dometic 2611 runs fine during the day when we are up and moving around but quits at night (electric or gas - no difference). I have tried a fan in the control area with un certain result. All fuses are good and voltages seem OK on the power panel. Can't get the cover off the little panel (re-igniter?) that has the trermocouple lead. Do I need a new coil (cooling) unit)?

Yes more than likely the cooling unit is going bad. If your boiler tube is hot the cooling unit is no good. Your frig is 13 years old, it has reached its life span and beyond. A cooling unit or a new frig can be purchased from Just send them an e-mail.

Have a space heater in the living room and one in the kitchen. Seem to work fine during the day but go out at night. What could be causing that?

These unit have a Pilot/ODS system built into them.
The ODS (Oxygen Depletion System) will shut these units of if the oxygen get to low.
This will sometimes happen more at night that during the day...people moving around more during the day, opening a door let more oxygen in.

Try cracking a window and see if the units stay on all night as a test to see if this could be the problem.

Rv ac throws the breaker when outside temp gets high, unit works fine at night when outside temp cools down

Clean evap and cond coils
Place hand on a/c if too hot during the day but cool at night
then freon is being restricted in the condensor
Cleaning coils may help days
Put a trickle of water on the condensor during the day for a test.

My rv air conditioner works fine at night but only clicks on during the day for about three minute intervals. It seems like the compresor should work harder during the peak heat.

First thing I'd check is the hydro supply to your RV. Test voltage at both times and see if it is the same. You can even buy a plug in tester if necessary, that plugs in to receptacles. It may be a case of everyone around you has AC etc on during the day and your incoming voltage has been lowered, thus AC will not work correctly, and at night when some others are off, your voltage comes back up to where AC will function properly. Especially likely if you are near the end of a power cable run. If you have access to a good generator even temporarily, try plugging into that during the day and see if it doesn't make a difference.

The airconditioner is drawing too many amps and is tripping the breaker during the day at night it seems to run ok

Check the condenser fan and see if it is running. If it's not it will cause the head pressure to rise and the unit will work harder. This will be more noticable in the heat of the day. Also check your air filter. Let me know what you find and we'll go from there.

Brand new Dometic rooftop ac,freezes up at night,does fine during day...??

This is common for most air conditioners and is normal due to humidity levels being higher at night causing more condensation build up and then freezing. Solution: Turn down thermostat at night to allow compressor to turn on and off.

Outside a/c fan quits but compresser still runs

it sounds like the fan is over amping itself and shutting down on thermal overload check the amp draw during running time and compare it to the sticker on the outside panel it should be running .9 amps, and it will over heat if it runs around 1.2 amps or above

Rm 2611 will not run on gas when going down the road

Your voltage supply is being interrupted. The DC voltage needs to be at least 10.5 to work properly. If you are switching from shore to gen this can cause the interuption also. I presume the gas supply is staying on when you are traveling.
