My Dometic RM 2852 not getting cold after defrost

We live in the fifth wheel full time, our model 2852 is a 2 way, 110v and gas. I noticed a plastic part clipped to the cooling fins in refer and what appears to be a thermocouple that was loose. Outside air temp is about 101 - 102 but fridge has worked fine in hotter temps. I can't find and thermostat adjustment in or on the fridge. I just reattached thermocouple? to plastic clip on cooling fins and hope thet works. Thanks for any help. Danny Phillips

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.

Yes the clearances on gas absorption frig is critical. Not to say there is not another problem. Is the thermister attached to the frig fins?

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.

SOURCE: 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.

Our refrigerator works on AC. When switched to lp gas it sometimes come on and works and then goes off. Then we can't get it to work again. Then it will work if we turn on the hot water hea


It seems like a gas pressure problem. Possible blockage or kinked pipe or faulty regulator on the gas bottle. If the fridge runs ok only when you use the gas hot water, that would change the gas flow / pressure. LP gas products are normally around 1.5 to 2.75 kpa pressure. If you have access to a manometer, the gas pressure can be checked. (NB/ You should hold a gas service licence to do this)

I have a Domatic RM 2852 in my RV. The freezer works fine but the refrigerator won't cool to 40 on electricity. It cools fine on gas.


You need to unplug the heating element from the circuit board and using a digital multi meter check the ohms. You should read approximately 44 ohms +/- 10%. If it is out of range change the heating element.

Dometic 2852 freezer gets cold but refridge does not


If your freezer is getting down close to zero degrees (F) then I doubt that your refrigerant is low. The most common cause of the refrigerator section not getting cool (approximately 40 degrees (f)) is a fan that pulls the coils in the freezer into the refrigerator has failed. A very common failure of a cheep little fan motor. Normally that fan is behind a panel in the freezer section at the bottom. Determine where the cold air in the refrigerator section normally enters and the fan will be above there.

2005 dometric rm 2852 wont cool


I suggest the main control board is faulty because of the spike. The voltage would have damaged some of the control circuit - even though the fuses did not blow. Sounds like a memory fault on a control chip.
