SOURCE: 5 amp fuse blows when I try to start on AC

Sounds like your heaters are shorted ,  This is best carried out by a fridggy but you can do it yourself with the right tools ,  First of all make sure you turn it off and unplug it completely. take off the back panels and located the tank  with the heaters wrapped around it. disconnect the heaters and remove them and make sure you take note of where each wire came from , ie; tag the wires or write it down, once the heaters and fuse is replaced it should be cool sailing..

SOURCE: My Dometic NDR1062 only runs on gas, its set for auto and has 110

There is a control board and a step down transformer that may be at fault.
These should be located in the lower rear of the unit.

SOURCE: dometic rerigerator won't work on electric keeps

Have you tried locating the connectors on circuit board for the AC (hydro) element and removing them from circuit board and see what happens when you turn it on hydro then? Follow them back from element if necessary. If fuse doesn't pop, then I'd suspect a shorted element and change the heating element. Double check fuse is correct amperage as well. If it's a 3 way fridge, make sure it's the AC element and not the 12 volt you remove.

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.

SOURCE: I have a Americana RM2652 It works on gas, but not

My guess is that the element is shorted out not much else to go wrong, elements are not that resilient to shocks and bumps.

Why does 15 amp 250 volt fuse in my lg refridgerator keep blowing


the 15 amp fuse is blowing because the current draw to run the compressor exceeds 15 amps
that problem could be from a failed start/ run capacitor or a failed compressor motor (I am betting on the capacitor)
the best answer is to get a fridge technician to check it out as the capacitor is a cheap fix while the compressor unit is as costly as a new fridge

My Dometic refrigerator electric position won't cool, could it be the fuses? If so, where are the fuses? So I can check them out. Thank you


Hi Patti,

If you are sure that your controls are set to cool in electric, then the rest of this will apply to the backside of the fridge. Double check, with a table lamp or simiiar, that you have power to the outlet that the fridge plugs into. This outlet is generally a protected outlet by a GFCI outlet located in the kitchen or bath areas. If the lamp works on the outlet, keep going. If not, reset GFCI and/or check our circuit breaker panel.

There are fuses on the Power Module, located on the back of the fridge, under a plastic rectangular housing. The DC fuse will be 3 Amp the AC fuse will be 5 Amp. If you are getting any kind of lights on the front, then the DC fuse will be okay. If your AC fuse is blown, then you need to check for a shorted heater. Disconnect the heater leads (after unplugging the fridge from AC). These will be the leads at J7 and J8 terminals. Unplug the leads, and use a multimeter to measure resistance between each lead. You should have approx. 44 ohms, +/- 10%. Also measure each lead to the case of the heater (follow the wires to the chimney). Any continuity reading here indicates a heater that is shorted to the case.

Good Luck!
