Problem with the electric on fridge not working

I have a dometic fridge in my camper and when on gas it works fine , but on electric its not working. i had the recall done at the first of the season and after that i had problems. i took it to another dealer and he troubleshooted and found the fuse blown . then that night when we went camping i turned it on gas to get it cold and the next morning switched to electric. later that afternoon the ice in the freezer was melting so i switched it back to propane. it worked fine that way. i am fairly good with checking stuff but need to know where to start and with what tools.how do you check the electric heating element ?

Hello Paintinfool3,

I have worked on these in the DISTANT past...
They are a great CLASSIC design... Working on gas
means you are 90 to 95% all good

The electric comprises two basic elements
only confused because you have both AC & DC modes.

Just for simplicity sake the ELECTRIC section
(heater & thermostat) section in the BELOW begins
with SECTION 63...

You need a volt-meter with an OHM scale...
(the $9 kind... HARBORFRIEGHT gives away).

There is a yes/no trouble shooting guide.

Also CUSTOMER CONTACT numbers in the very back.

Happy hunting!!

SOURCE: won't get cold anymore

Good thinking... you need to hire a service technician (a good one!). Too many jackasses think they know these systems. Obviously, there's something wrong with the system.. if so, you need someone who knows what they're working on/with.

SOURCE: I have a mid 70's Dometic RM 211 refrigerator in

Hi Brian,

You don't want to use a screen that is made to fit. The original part was designed for a specific flame. That being said, colaws rv salvage may have a replacement burner in stock, and you can also try calling up a company that rebuilds cooling units for rv fridges.

2008 camper. fridge keeps switching over to gas. Turned it off & back on, it goes back to AC. The camper is plugged into a 50amp outlet & all else works fine.


Check your fuses and circuit breakers to see if any are tripped or blown. If you are handy with a test meter you can check for power at the refrigerator control panel. There will be a vented cover outside behind your fridge and there are two leads going to a heating element. You can check for power or continuity through the element.

What do I check to fix my Dometic Americana refrigerator. It won't start using electric or gas.


Fist off before you get crazy replacing things make sure the camper is level when testing this. Gas will not run to it if you are not level. Also make sure the gas is turned on and make sure you have selected automatic or gas only on your fridge. Also give it about an hour before you test the temp. These take a bit longer to start feeling cool. If all of that does not work you will need to check the refrigerant, igniter(for the gas side) and the compressor. Also make sure the fuses are good to go at the main panel and that the breakers are in the "on" position

Our Dometic RM2193 cools on gas but does not work on electric


It could be as simple as a blown fuse at the fridge. Also check to make sure you have turned on the electric switch that allows the fridge to run on AC. Note, you can only operate the fridge on EITHER gas OR electric, but not both sources at the same time, thus, you have to turn off the gas switch before you can run on electric.

When this unit is running on electricity, it has to have the thermostat set for it to run.

Here's a link to the Dometic manual for your model.

Just follow the steps for running on electric and you should be OK.
Hope this helps.

Camper fridge dont cool


I also had the same Model Make. I removed my fridge and placed it upside down, occasionally shaking fridge within a 24 hr period. This seemed to re-mix the ammonia solution and the fridge is working.
This may work for you but look for yellow stains if you see any your fridge is leaking and would require repair.
