Question about Dometic RM2652 Refrigerator
On the back side of the refrigerator to the right you will see a couple of wires going into a metal rod that is bent. That is the electric heating element. Grasp hold of the metal/rubber booted end and see if you can move it from side to side. If it will not move then that typically means that the heating element has failed and has welded to the cooling unit. When this happened it not only could cause a short but could also rupture the cooling unit causing a loss of the hydrogen/ammonia mixture. If they are moveable then you may have a bad circuit board that is causing the unit to shut down to protect the other components.

If you have the yellow epoxy filled circuit board from around 1993-1996 rather than the green newer one you can see the circuits on (take the black cover at back of fridge off to check) it is most likely just a bad circuit board. Otherwise it is most likely low voltage or a bad ground on the 12volt power coming into the fridge. Also make sure your thermostat(if available) is on maximum during testing.

According to the label (inside the hinge of the main door), it's 2.7 amps when running on 110 volts. It shows blank for running on 12 volts. However, with the anti-humidity switch on, it can use enough current to drain your battery. I was concerned about the battery draw when running the fridge on 12 volts, because the dealer told me it defrosts itself every 72 hours. Something has to control this, and probably uses some power.
