Question about Dometic Refrigerators

1 Answer

Fridge not coming back on.

Fridge was hooked up to electric service, power went off when the plug came out of socket, unit was set on auto, and gas was not turned on. Now unit is not showing any power to it either with 120 or 12v. Is it possible there is a lockout that is effecting it. there is power to the receptacle, and the fuses check ok.

SOURCE: bulbs and bottom pcb blew, replaced but still not working

the start and run capacitors of the compressor can go short circuit and cause a big spike that can blow the bulbs, trip fuse etc. Inspect the capacitors for splits etc, you may well find that the start cap has blown and so there will not be enough current to get the compressor running.

SOURCE: Dometic RM2652 or RM2852 not working.

There is a factory recall on these refrigerators. Call Dometic 1800-544-4881 and give them your serial number and model number. Going through the same thing right now. On my Fleetwood Gearbox. Hope that helps. Robert

SOURCE: dometic rm2852 does not run on gas

So, the solution was simple but not obvious: the heat probe and the igniter are one and the same item, and all we had to do was bend the probe/igniter closer to the burner. After we did that the refrigerator started to behave properly.

Oddly enough, the repair manual for the refrigerator shows a igniter with a heat probe above it: the is not how the refrigerator is built.

If you can try first changing the battery of the unit to check if everything will be working fine, because there's a possibility that the battery went bad or worse the unit has some problem with it , if after changing the battery still have the same problem better have it replace and take the new unit Off Shore for your own good.

Hope that helps..........

Dear Davehibshman,

Firstly; dismantle the plug and replace the fuse with the same rating as the one you have just taken out. Replace the plug cover, put the plug into the socket and try again. If this doesnt work, there may be a problem with the internal fuse (if one is fitted). Two choices here, either refer this unit to a qualified service personnel/ the place where you got it from, or do the job yourself (which will save you a whole bunch of cash). In your circumstances, I would take it back to the place you got it and ask them to put the fault right, or replace the unit completely; if it is past its warranty or guarantee time, then get back to me with a make and model number of the unit, and I will give you step-by-step instructions on how to solve this.

Yours sincerely

In order for your fridge to work when your trailer is not pluged in you need a 12 volt power source, You might have a bad battery or your positive or negative cables are not connected properly. Or a bad connection in the back of the fridge. Check the fuse?

Fridge went to gas when power went out. when power came back on fridge didn't swith back to power. worked until gas went out. is there a problem with a switch somewhere or does the unit need replacing


Many RVs / Coaches have the fridge power receptacle protected by a GFCI outlet that is located in the kitchen, perhaps bathroom, areas. Check to see if this outlet is tripped. If it isn't, try plugging a lamp into the fridge outlet to see if it works.

If it does, then the control board may have gotten spiked by a converter surge while power was being lost (also a sign of a failing converter). You can also measure the resistance of the heating element with a multimeter. You should see about 44 ohms (give or take 10%). If the heating element is out of tolerance, the fridge won't use it, but it should throw a code indicating a problem.

If the outlet doesn't work, look for other dead outlets in your coach. Double check GFCI outlets, make sure they are not tripped. And, of course, make sure that all your breakers are turned on, and not partially tripped as well.

If your unit is automatically switching from AC to gas for no reason, then you either have a problem with the power supply or the lower control board. On the outside of the fridge, there is a black box located in the lower left corner, this box is the control unit. The control unit senses the incoming power source and automatically switches it to LP if no AC power is available.

Turn the refrigerator on and set it to auto. Let it run until you notice that it switches to gas. Immediately go outside and check for incoming 120VAC power at that lower board. If you have power there, then you have a bad board. If you do not have power, then you have a power supply problem. Check the electrical plug and outlet in the fridge compartment and also make sure that your GFCI's throughout the coach are ok.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

Remove front panel of maytag MDG7400Aww gas dryer


You have to remove the front panel first to access the clip that holds the front of the top down. Instructions:

crosstip medium screwdriver
1/4 inch socket
5/15 inch socket
  1. UNPLUG DRYER
  2. TURN OFF GAS
  3. Disassemble by taking apart the FRONT of the dryer:

    a. Remove the door and opposite side door plugs (crosstip screws)

    b. Remove the front panel - this exposes sheet metal bolts (5/16 inch) some with crosstip on left and right of unit. Set panel aside (right side) WITHOUT unplugging wires

    c. Unscrew all the exposed bolts.

    d. Top bolts left and right secure the unpainted metal hooks which secures the top of dryer. Unscrew these bolts and wiggle the metal retainer hooks off. Lift top and support to create 6 inch gap in the front (top unit hinges in back and has electrical connections - do NOT disconnect wires)

    e. Release belt from pulley by reaching left and under drum (this is out of sight)

    f. gently lift out drum and belt and set aside
  4. This has exposed the interior.
