SOURCE: need directions to remove and replace 110 element in Dometic 2652

Get to the back of the fridge. On the right hand side, there is a metal tube about 4" in diameter which starts at the bottom and goes up. This is a piece of thin sheet metal, which holds insulation against the refrigerant line that goes up the right side of the fridge. The 110 volt heater is located inside of that, near the bottom. The heater sits inside of a small tube, welded to the refrigerant line, and is easily replaced. To get to it, remove any flat sheet metal parts that block your view of the 4" tube (you will need to have a clear view of the bottom of it.) Then you can see the heater. It is on the left side of your 4" tube, metal, about 5/16" in diameter, has 2 wires attached, and sticks out an inch or so to the left. Trace the wires back to where they are connected on your fridge, and remove them, (probably with a small straight blade screwdriver.) It may be necessary to remove another cover or 2 to get to that connection, so remember where all your cover plates came from. Digital cameras are great ;-) . Then, on your 4" tube, unsnap and open the "door" (the metal piece which is a couple if inches wide and 7" or so high,) Grab a hold of your old heater, and pull it up. It probably wont come up all the way so you can lift it completely out, so you will have to unsnap some of your 4" tube above the door. When you remove the old heater, note its position relative to the insulation and refrigerant tube, 'cause the new one goes right back in the same spot. Pull the old one out, and put the new one in. You will know you have it installed correctly when it is snug in its own little tube (you wont be able to see that part,) and there is no side to side play. Then reverse the directions, and put everything back together again. When you re-attach the 2 wires to your unit, don't worry about getting it wrong, it doesn't matter which wire goes with what connector.

Heater element only gets 120volts. Should be 240v, correct? Water does not heat up.


Testing voltage on heater can be tricky since elements can test 120Volt to ground all all times.
This is because thermostats only turn off 1 Hot leg in the 240Volt circuit, while the other hot leg remains live. Each hot leg in 240Volt circuit is 120Volt.

I have 120 VAC to the elements and have hit the reset button but my water heater wont switch on to heat the water. it is brand new.


Test for 240V across top two screws on upper element
Test elements.
Replace thermostats.

Tank that has two elements is rated 240Volt.
The element will test for live 120Volt to ground at all times, but not until the circuit is completed will the element turn on and test 240Volt.

No hot water at all but power to all elements and to thermostats is there a dip tube in the rheem model 71-40D


Water heater can test for 120V power on elements and thermostats at all times.
That's because thermostats turn off one leg of 240Volt circuit, and not both legs.
You mentioned thermostats and elements, implying two elements and two thermostats, so your water heater is 240Volt.
240Volt breaker might be bad on one leg.
