Dometic 3way fridge model RM2350R. the fridge works ok, but when i run it on gas the flame lights first time, but the flame indicater does not work,the thermocuple has the right ajustment,is clean,wh

The flame indicator works on very low voltages from electricity generated via the thermocouple. Check the connections and if OK, I would say you are correct in assuming the indicator has failed. These are very sensitive and a bit of a knock can damage them. Try Dometic or Electrolux for a replacement indicator.

The lights will not work inside or on the power button lights either no power, all fuses ok 14 volts dc power to unit but have nothing,could it be the main power board or the eyebrow board or what

It sounds like it could be the main power board. If you have 12V going to the board and the fuses are all ok then the power board would be the next item that could cause this issue. I would recomend a dinosaur electronics replacement board. They are a high quality aftermarket product. You will require the P711 board by Dinosaur. ArctiCold Refrigeration We keep it cold

Dometic RM2652LB unit does not operate on lp

Try cleaning thermocouple (sits just above flame like a probe) with a small piece of steel wool, especially in area where flame would touch underneath it. If that doesn't cure it, I'd replace thermocouple. If you have a multimeter, you can check voltage at board where thermocouple connects,,reading connected to board should be between 25 and 35 Milli-volts. Any less than 20 will cause problems at gas valve.

RM6270 in a touring caravan, over 5 yrs old. Worked fine until mid-Sept, when it ceased on 240V, 12V & gas still good. Any other sources of the problem possible, other than the 240V element (e.g. power...

Some of the Dometics have what was called the 'Dinosaur Board' which is a circuit card which controls the unit.

Not sure if it applies to your exact model, but if there is a company who just makes replacement control boards for Dometic fridges, that is a big fat clue, in my book. Cheers.

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.

RM2652 runs a short while on gas then gas shuts off.

That was my same problem. I posted yesterday but I don't think I did it right! Anyway I had stated I thought it was the thermocouple and that's what it was. The millivolts while connected were down around 13.5 or so and that low of a voltage is not enough for the control board to verify there is a flame present. I replaced the thermocouple and it now reads 33.5 millivolts while the flame is on. So before you buy a new control board, make sure it's not something less expensive. I paid almost $40 for the replacement, but I am in a hurry to get this unit repaired. You can find them on-line for about half that.

Dometic RM2350 Fridge not cold enough

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
