Dometic Voluntarily Expands Refrigerator Recall

Dometic recently expanded its recall on a population of two-door refrigerators. The original recall included some two-door refrigerators manufactured between April 1997 and May 2003. The new recall focuses on models manufactured between June 2003 and September 2006.

To see if your unit is on the recall list & what to do, try the link below.
If your unit is on the list, DO NOT run your refrigerator on propane until the kit is installed

Shut it off immediately and do not use it. Ammonia is sign of coolant leak, thus cooling unit is leaking/faulty, and as I'm sure you know, ammonia is dangerous to inhale etc. Sorry to say but, it's time for a new fridge, and at very least a cooling unit, but speaking from experience, your better off buying a complete new unit. I've seen many people replace cooling unit to save a few hundred dollars, then end up replacing circuit board, and various other item one after the other down the road. New fridge comes with year or 2 warranty as well.

These type of refrigerators can not be simply recharged as there is ammonia inside and not freon.

Shut it off and get it checked. Ammonia is dangerous as I am sure you are aware. Ammonia smell is an indication of a leaking cooling unit. Time for a new fridge. Sorry.

Dometic refrig not cooling but found yellow oil at service panel


if you find an oily substance its most likely freon. this looks pretty new so i would say you have a bad soldered joint on a copper to steel line. theses usually ar fot the high side. where the condensor coil or loop runs either to underref or up in the ref walls

Our rv has a dometic rm2600 fridge that smells of ammonia inside and has a little bit of yellow residue in behind service panel. is the fridge wrecked or is it worth repairing. the rv is 27 years old.


Hi,
Sorry to give you the bad news. The ammonia smell is the the refrigerant
leaking out. Dometic uses ammonia that is heated and then condensed to cool. It will all leak out and quit cooling.
The fridge is wrecked. There are shops that rebuild the units. Beings as ammonia is corrosive one must assume there may be other leaks ready to appear. There are RV salvage yards that sell good used units.
Again Sorry for your loss.

Has leaked out all 'gas' from the cannister to the down tube. Can this be repaired and recharged?


If by 'gas' you mean refrigerant, then yes, it can be recharged. However, in order to legally recharge a refrigeration unit with refrigerant you need a special certification from the EPA. I recommend you get a certified technician to take a look at your refrigerator

Camper fridge dont cool


I also had the same Model Make. I removed my fridge and placed it upside down, occasionally shaking fridge within a 24 hr period. This seemed to re-mix the ammonia solution and the fridge is working.
This may work for you but look for yellow stains if you see any your fridge is leaking and would require repair.

I have a Dometic RV fridge that wont get cold. It is a model RM 2401. It easily lights on gas, the coils get hot and it makes a little gurgling noise but does not get cold. Can this be recharged?


It sounds like your cooling unit is going out. Here's a couple of things to check. Do you smell any ammonia when you open either one of the doors? When you look at the rear of the fridge, do you see anything that looks like rusty water that has run down any of the metal tubes and dried up? If the answer to either one of these is "yes", then youll need to start looking for a new fridge or replace the cooling unit on the one that you have.
