If the fridge is complete dead (no lights no fan, no compresor,etc.) looks like there's not power in the unit.Check if theres power in the oulet if you know how , if you don't put the fridge in an oulet that you know is power , if still doing nothing probably the cord is broken or burned and the power doesn't go throught it from the oulet to the fridge.

SOURCE: dometic rm2611 not restart after cooling box normally, then warmi

Your fridge is working against outside air tempurature and any solar heating effect. To maximise the operation of your fridge allways try to park the unit so the fridge side will be in the shade. Do you have a fan to create the air circulation in the back of the fridge? There are kits available for this. I use a recovered converter fan and have it set up in the bottom of the fridge cavity below the coils and blowing straight up. This helps a lot. The kits normally come with a 80 degree F temp switch, I have a leftover toggel from some where for mine. I don't think your fridge is the problem. I don't think a new one will fix it. Your best bet is to do the kind of thing I have above and it should work better. Hopefully good enough. Good Luck

SOURCE: I hav a Dometic refrigerator

The igniter may be just a bit too far from the burner to spark and light the flame. That is a physical reason. Try moving the tip of the igniter a bit closer. Once the burner has been on for a period of time the physical dimensions in the burner area may have increased to the point that the igniter can't jump the gap.

A weak igniter coil could also be the problem.
--------------- The check system light mostly comes due to faulty mother board of the rm-2611.And replacing the board solves the problem.The board which fits your dometic refrigerator is "Dinosaur Electronics Micro P-711". --------------------- Now more details about the problem and the new mother board:--- when replacement time comes install a Dinosaur Power Board. The reason for that is they have a 3 year warranty replacement and the OEM boards only have a 1 year, as well as they are usually a few dollars cheaper. But before you just replace the board make sure that the burner is clean of debris and that the propane pressure is correct and 11 to 11 1/2 water column inches. The replacement board I referred to has a wiring sheet that comes in the box and is fairly easy to understand.There are about 9 wires that hook to the board. The new one calls for an extra ground wire that is about 5 or 6 inches.----- The model of Board replacement is a micro P-711 from Dinosaur. You can get these at most RV repair shops. The regulator won't have on/ off valves for each tank but they do separate the tanks to allow one to be removed from the system so it can be refilled without any interruption in your service. One last thing on the refer, whenever you are parked for 30 minutes or more and have it turned on make sure the coach is level, or within 3 degrees of being level. To check that the coach is level purchase a omni- directional level. They are about 1 to 2 inches and are round. Put it in the freezer shelf and level the coach to that. The reason I say this is because if they are run out of level bad things can happen and in a short time. If a bad thing does happen it is usually the cooling unit that is damaged and they cost somewhere between 600.00 and 900.00 to replace. Sometimes even a bit more, and the new replacement ones just might not fit into the same hole and might need modified as well. ----------- If you want to see how the board actually look.Please click on the Link. ---------

Just bought a tent trailer with a Dometic Fridge.

You need to make sure that you follow the manufacturer's recommendations for using the unit with each specific power source. It's important that you have the all switches in the proper position, based on what power source you're using.

Here's the manual for your model, save a copy and print it out and take some time to review the section #3 Operating Instructions on page 6.

Hope you find this helpful and will resolve your issue.
