Question about Dometic WA3210 Compact Refrigerator

Camper fridge will not cool down(unsure of model)

I have a dometic 2 cu ft fridge for my palomino pop up camper. Last year, I was preparing for a camping trip, I started the propane pilot to begin cooling the fridge for the trip, then went into my house. 2 minutes later I came back to find black smoke coming from the outside compartment, after disassembly, I found a spider nest in the propane assembly causing the flame to "back up" and melt a wire. I cleared the nest, replaced the wire, and restarted the pilot only to find that the fridge would not cool. I removed the fridge from the camper, and hooked it up to 110v supply, allowed it to sit for 24+ hrs and it still would not cool, the camper is three years old, therefore, the fridge is out of warranty. I am fairly handy with mechanical fixes if pointed in the right direction, any suggestions?

Ok firstly if you remove the element and give it 110v does it warm up if it warm up and still not making the fridge cold the propane chemicals are not right any more

My beverage cooler MCBC58DST wont stay cool after it reaches target temp.


Throw it out and get another model from another company. Their units are junk!
They last a year, at best. Them and Magic Chef are one and the same...so you may have to bite the bullet and get a real unit.

Good luck. I speak from experience...I've had four now. Complete junk!!

I have a Dometic fridge model number RM2612 in a camper that i just purchased used and the fridge isn't cooling. The freezer section seems to be okay. The metal plate in the freezer gets cold but


Make sure it is level, has proper airflow out through top vent. Also check baffle, or stack where flame sits under and blow it out good with compressed air to make sure it's clean. If you smell a hint or strong smell of ammonia, shut it off, it has a leak in cooling unit. If all ok in that area, shut it off, disconnect and plug propane line, disconnect power and remove the fridge. Turn the fridge upside down for a day or 2, then re-install and let it sit 24 hrs before turning it back on. Quite often that will take care of any blockage in flow of cooling liquid, and get things back to normal if cooling unit is still good.

My side by side 23.6 cu. ft. no frost refrigerator is not freezing and the refrigerator is not getting cold enough. There's frost on the back wall inside freezer. It's a GE TFX24VR. What can I


usually that means your fridge thermostat is being blocked by items in your fridge, telling the cooling system to shut down. If your fridge and freezer are packed, the fridge might protect itself by shutting down the cooling system. Happened to us last Thanksgiving.

Whirlpool 10 cu ft fridge, freezing cans of pop at rear center of unit and spraying interior. Have had the fridge over a year with no problems until the last couple of weeks.


Turn the cold control down. If you have already have the cold control turned down then you will need to replace the cold control/thermostat with a new one.

I have a dometic rm 2652 rv frig.. it is 4 years old and is not cooling. you can feel heat in the tube on both propane and electric but no cooling. can you be of any help on what I can do to fix this...


Inside your fridge there are fins, on the far right there is a plastic piece that slides up and down, this will adjust your temp. OR it can be your thermister. At the back of your fridge access from out side your camper there is a black box with lots of wires going to it , pop cover unplug wire P2 (your thermister) Then you will need an Ohm meter buy at any auto parts store, at the back of the plug test buy putting the red in one prong and black in the other you should get a reading of 6 Ohms now the plastic piece in the fridge pop it off the fin and remove the little wire with little tip and place it in a cup of ice and little water wait for 5-10 mins. and you should get a reading of 15 Ohms. And one other thing it might be a bad ground. Good luck.

Find thermistor/thermostat that is usually attached by plastic holder at back on one of the fins in fridge compartment. Pull it off, and move it over to left 2 fins, then give 24-48 hrs and see if any change.

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.
