Question about Refrigerators
Our Dometic 3-way fridge freezer has begun playing up in our motorhome. In the evening/night when on gas, the gas fails to ignite. We hear it clicking for a while and then give up. After trying a couple more times it starts beeping. Not a problem during the day when it works fine. Is it something to do with the temperature? The thing is that it's not that cold at the moment and we have been in far colder conditions (e.g.snow). Any help is appreciated!

I am going to first sugest to do a direct test on the cooling unit. You will first need to locate the 110Volt heating element on the rear of the refrigerator. It is located in the tin stack on the right hand side. After locating these two wires, you must plug them in to a 110 Volt source. You can do so by cutting an old extension cord and splicing the wires to to the heating element wires, then plug the extension cord in. This will by pass the thermostat and run your cooling system wide open. If your refrigerator works in a direct test then the problem is your thermostat. If you need any more info, please feel free to contact my company Arctic Cold Refrigeration @ 1888-782-6665 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org

The part you are looking for is the thermo couple. It senses the heat from the flame and holds the gas valve open. The clicking will try three times and then go into lock out. You then will need to reset on the front of the fridge. When installing the thermo couple do not over tighten.

You more than likely need to replace the control cable between the upper and lower board. It comes as a kit with the upper board. You can also do a bypass test by unplugging your thermoster from the circuit board. The thermoster is the temperature control for the refrigerator nothing to do with the freezer.

SOURCE: Freezer working, fridge isn't.
It is possible that your cooling unit is failing due to a blockage. The solution used to cool starts at the top of the fridge and works its way to the bottom. If there is a blockage in the cooling unit it could produce the symptom you have explained.

Ok, I realize I'm a little late on chiming in here, is this unit located in a slideout, and/or the top outside vent is in the wall not a roof located vent?
If so then the issue is that there are fans that are necessary to circulate air thru the hot coils. And there is probably a malfuntioning thermostat to turn these fans on/off. I had this issue with same fridge in a Gulfstream motorhome, and the temporary fix was to pull the faston connectors off the thermostat and tied them together with a 12V fuse, and taped it up with electrical tape to keep it from shorting on fridge chassis and parts. Replace the thermostat at your conveniance, as these fans are now running whenever fridge is on, and will run your batteries down if not plugged into shore power.
