Is there a yellow powder substance on the coils, heating tube or anywhere towards the bottom? If so, you have a leak. The best thing to do is:
1-Find a replacement unit online( ebay is a good place to start)
2-unhook electric line and gas line from the access panel
3-remove the refrigerator from the inside and place doors down(its heavy and you will probably need another person to help)
4-remove cooling unit from back of refridgerator
5-make sure you have enough thermo-mastik for the unit/coil contacts
6-replace cooling unit and hook up everything in reverse
7-turn on and let it cool for a few hours. My unit stays below 32F and works great.

Found the first one listed on ebay just now for $399.00 with a five (5) year warranty.

Question: I have a trailer camper it has a Dometic Rm 2652 Ameri. refrig.


If I remember right on those, the system works off 12 volt--120 volt-- or propane (LP gas). have you tried one of the other power source to run it off of?? If you get the same type cooling results the problem is probably a small leak in the freon system. Those use special internal gas. When I worked for GE the only way to fix them was to replace the complete cooling system which came pre-charged with the special internal gas. Quite expensive after the warranty. Now if you switch power source and one of the other sources make it work the problem will be with the type power you were using when it failed to cool properly. Many people that had system problems with those camper type refrigerators removed them and installed a small regular dorm style refrigerator that could only be run off a 120 volt power system. You would need a 12 volt to 120 converter to run it while on the road if thats what you want to do.

I just saw where they have a recall on this model Dometic Refrigerator RM 2652. If you go to the www.Dometic.com and find the recall info you can type your Model and Serial Number into the boxes and see if your model is one of the ones recalled. Don't know if this link will work but try it first and it will bring you straight to that box I am talking about on their website. Its http://67.238.126.140/recall.php, if not go to the one above and find the recall information. Hope this helps.

Our Dometic RM2193 cools on gas but does not work on electric


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.

Just follow the steps for running on electric and you should be OK.
Hope this helps.

I found that they rewired the 12 volt supply, red wire, thru a heat safety switch on the burner unit and it was open instead of being closed and cut off the main 12 volt supply to the control board. I connected a jumper wire around the new switch and the frig works . either the new switch is bad or too close to the heating unit.
