SOURCE: Dometic RM2652 will not run on electricity only Propane

Most likely your heating element burned out or else the circuit board is bad. To test the heating element unplug it from the circuit board (j6 and j7 usually gold colored) take the two heating element wires and using an ohm meter make sure there is no resistance between them, if there is resistance the heating element is bad, Or can just put a plug onto the heating element and plug it into a 110 wall outlet and see if it gets hot. If it is not the heating element it is most likely the main circuit board. (between 1993-1996 dometic used a yellow epoxy filled circuit board that went out pretty quickly) if you have the yellow filled circuit board rather than the green one it is most likly the circuit board

SOURCE: Dometic refridgerator won't stay lit on Propane

A bit more info is needed. What model #, and how old is it? In back, does it have a computer board (underneath a green or black plastic cover, appros 4" x 6")? Im guessing that it does, ('cause you get an error message,) Make sure that you have a good 12 volts going to the board at all times, and make sure that the glass fuses on the board are not blown. If that checks out, than its a real good bet the you have a defective board. For Americana models, you're going to need a Dometic board, and for other models, an aftermarket board will usually do. Althoiugh the OEM ones have a better chance of fixing your problem.

SOURCE: 3 way dometic RV fridge RM2612 won't work on propane or 12 V

Check any fuses/circuit breakers in harness from battery. That battery should supply 12 volts dc to fridge lugs/terminals at bottom of fridge on outside behind vent.
If battery is good and hooked up properly but no 12 volts to fridge, then you will have to trace back to battery for broken /bad wire. If you want to test quickly, just run 2 jumper wires from battery to those 2 lugs marked + and - Battery + to + (pos)at fridge, and - battery to -Neg at fridge. That should allow you to run it on propane or 12 volt. Remember, running it on 12 volts will kill that battery pretty quick, unless it's being charged. When you are plugged in, the converter supplies the 12 volts to your fridge, as well as should be charging your battery.

SOURCE: I have a Dometic 2193 3 way fridge. It works

The flue baffle was the solution that worked for me as well. Below is a response I posted to a similar post.

------

I had a similar problem. The flue would get hot and the cooling tubes would get "warm". The refrig would get a LITTLE cool but nothing to be of any help.

I solved it though...it turns out there is a "flue baffle" (twisty little metal thing) that is supposed to hang in the inside of the baffle. It hangs from a screw found on top of the baffle and it is supposed to hang down.

The screw that held mine was corroded and flue baffle had fallen into the baffle and landed on top of the burner.

I ended up fishing the flue baffle out of the top of the baffle with a coat hanger, then rehanging it using a new screw. That solved my problem.

Not sure if this will work for you or not but good luck.

By the way, you can find an owner's manual with a diagram showing the flue, the flue baffle, and the piece of metal holding it here:

http://www.fourwheelcampers.com/DometicRefrigerator.pdf

Look on p.9, figure 9. Item C is the flue baffle and the wire holding it. Item B is the screw that was corroded on mine, and ended up dropping the baffle down to the bottom of the flue.

Below is a link to some generic directions on solving fridge-related problems. I found it to be VERY useful.

My dometic rm2652 check light comes on after a the refrigerator is turned on with either gas or electric. What could be the problem?


First things to check would be the receptacle that fridge is plugged in to at back for power to it. You may have tripped breaker as well. Either way, you need to confirm that you have AC (hydro) voltage going to fridge, as well as test for min 11-12 Volts (DC) to back of fridge where the DC voltage connects. The check light coming on tells me you have 12 Volts DC, but just confirm. With propane on, make sure you have propane to stove etc, then try starting fridge on propane only setting, and listen or watch outside at burner for ignition. Let me know if you see it sparking, or hear it sparking.

Fridge does not get cold during propane gas function only. Upper Freezer section does. Whole unit does perform and freeze and cold function fine with electric and generator function. Why only during...


According to the manual the following is the most likely items to cause that failure. But since it is only in the frigerator section and not the freezer section it could be the lower circuit board.


LP Gas


Orifice


Flue Baffle


Flue Tube


Burner


Lower Circuit Board

I bought at Dometic propane/ electric fridge for my cabin last year. It has not run properly since. The fridge will light and run for a while with a blue flame but sometimes in the idle mode it goes out....


I have to ask, what is idle mode? I've never seen one that runs on idle mode, in a RV in 15 years. Has anyone used a manometer and tested Inches of water column in propane supply to fridge, as well as other appliances?
Any I've seen run on propane, are either on, (flame present, or off, no flame present.) Flame goes out completely when not calling for cool.

Not working on propane


Shut it off, (propane) and used compressed air to try and blow up that stack and clean out any rust that may be in there, as well as check for baffle hooked at top of stack, and hangs down inside the tube.

Does my old propane fridge have a element ?


Propane refrigerators have a gas burner to create the heat for refrigerant circulation. Some propane refrigerators that were used mostly in RV's also had an electric heat element that ran off a power cord or 12 volt battery.

To determine this look at the back of the refrigerator, you will see a gas line that ends in a burner on the lower left side (looking from the back). Just above that about 4 inches will be wires coming out of the box if an electric heat element is used.
