SOURCE: The fridge is blowing the 12 volt fuse as soon as

Unplug the wire located at terminal J4 (12v positive) on the control board, and see if you are still popping fuses. If so, then the fault lies between the wire you just removed and the fuse that keeps blowing.

If the fuse holds, and blows when you plug the wire back onto J4 terminal, then unplug the wire(s) at J2. These go to your door heater (used in humid conditions to remove condensation), as well as the interior light. The switch for the door heater is located on front panel, or is at the top edge of the freezer compartment with door open. It is not unusual for this switch to have issues since it gets chilled and moisture condenses on it. If unplugging the wires at J2 allows the fuse to hold, you probably got a shorted heater or bad heater switch. But, pull the lens off the interior light, and check the contacts there as well.

If the fuse still blows with J2 removed, then unplug the connector in the top left corner of the control board. This goes to the control panel on the inside of the fridge. If the fuse blows, replace the control board. If the fuse holds, the replace the control panel.

SOURCE: RM2652 Dometic, blows 15A fuse in about 15 seconds

Sounds like you have a short in your heating element for 120VAC. I'd change it.

Blowing fuses


Defrost element will be causing a short circuit. If the house fuse is blowing it would indicate that the value of the circuit breaker on the fridge circuit is too high.
Replace the defrost element .

Spa has 20amp fuse that blows whenever I either restart spa or turn on jet pump. I disconnected pump and it ran fine until I restarted the spa and fuse blew again.


something is drawing a load when it shouldnt be. remove all circ pumps, booster pumps, and disconnect heater element. turn on hot tub and see if it trips. then do the same, re connecting the element, and pumps, one at a time. when it does trip, thats where the problem lies. bad pump or element
