Question about Dometic RGE400 Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

New Travel fridge!

I just bought an '08 Cherokee "wolf pack" toy hauler 27' pull behind in IOWA (I live in TN).....and the Dometic fridge does nothing. Am I missing something? I've tried pushing the ON and Auto (gas/elect) buttons in various ways and the ON light is on but not any cooling (or heating)....basically no response. The cooling control in the fridge box seems like a cheap clip-on sliding control where you simply slide the thing up to cooler and down for warmer. One thing...I am parked along my garage and the trailer is tilting sideways quite a bit. Any suggestion are appreciated. Thanks in advance......tommybear

Re: New Travel fridge!

Unit should still be covered on warranty call dometic directly. The tilting could affect some. If you push the auto button in it should run on electric first if no electric present it then goes to gas. Exception to the rule is if the heating element is not working it does not recognize this so it will stay on electric. Unplug the 110v in the compartment on the outside it should change to gas with in a few seconds. If it does heating element is bad.

Dometic refrigerator RM 2652 is not working

The fridge needs a 12 volt DC source to operate properly, which should be connected at the back of the fridge, outside behind cover. Check all fuses in your fuse panel as well. The upper controls are powered by 12 volt DC system, and that's what tells the fridge what to do.. (battery or converter)

Freezer working, fridge isn't.

It is possible that your cooling unit is failing due to a blockage. The solution used to cool starts at the top of the fridge and works its way to the bottom. If there is a blockage in the cooling unit it could produce the symptom you have explained.

Same problem freezer is ice cold and the fridge is warm.

Make sure that the knob that controls the opening of the vent so the cold air in the freezer get to the refrigerator is operating. If it does, I don't see any reason why the refrigerator should not work.

I have a 2009 toy hauler with a dm 2852, freezer is cold, but the refrigerator is not cold enough. I know there is a temp sensor that attaches to the condensor and I have it as high as it will go on the...

I have the same fridge in a 2009 Heartland Cyclone 3950. Just recently had the same problem. Is your fridge in a slideout? If so, in order to vent out the wall (as opposed to a fridge NOT in a slideout, they vent through the roof, and sometimes don't have fans) - the fan must come on to assist with hot air movement. If you have not heard the fan come on, go outside and check in the access panels.

On mine, the fan is mounted inside, just under the top opening. The thermal switch that operates the fan is mounted to the fins at the top. After verifying I had power, I bypassed the thermal switch and connected the wires together - the fan runs 24/7 now (until I install my new switch) and its cooling like new! smile.gif For the DM2852 model fridge, the Dometic part number is: 3104133.016

I called Dometic myself and got the part number in order for the "authorized service center" to order it - he had no parts breakdown for this section of my fridge. The fridge has a 3 year warranty, so I let the service center order the part for me - free of charge - otherwise I could have paid for it straight from Dometic.
