Will not run electric but runs on 12volt and gas


The verry first thing is to ensure that the rear coils of the cooling system are not warm. These coils can be accessed through the rear vent of refrigerator. If these coils are warm and the fridge is level then you more then likely require a cooling system. (Link Below)
If the coils are not warm, then you must ensure you have 110V on the plug that the refrigerator plugs into. It is located at the rear of the fridge and can be accessed through the vent panel of RV. Iv you do have 110V at the plug, then you may want to then check the fuses located inside the electronic board on the fridge. It is also located on rear of the fridge and can be accessed through the vent. If both fusses in tact, then the problem is more then likely your heating element that is bad. The heating element is located in the duct work on the right hand side looking at the fridge from the rear. You mentioned that your fridge also works on 12V so you will have two heating elements. The one with the yellow wires is the the 12V heating element, you do not have to remove that one. You must remove the other in which it is either black or white wires. The wires simply disconnect from the electronic boad and the heating element will slide upward to be removed. It sometimes takes some twisting to get it loosened up.If you have any questions please feel free to contact ArctiCold Refrigeration We keep it cold

Where is the reset on my refidgerator wont get cold enough kid left it open


Red light on for High Freezer Temperature Warning
or freezer not cooling, but fridge is and a lot of noise from compressor.
Also, fridge drain hole blocked, water in bottom of fridge.


This is a common fault in Hotpoint Fridge Freezers and can also happen if the door has been left open or has been a power cut.

1. Turn off fridge freezer, or at least turn down the freezer temp to minimum, though not ideal.
2. Open freezer door and remove all drawers.
3. Remove the back panel on the inside of the freezer. This is held in place with 4 screws, which might be 6mm hex head or star allen head. Pull the panel out.
4. Behind where the panel was, there is a cooling element for cooling, pipes, and below this a temperature sensor. If the fridge freezer is not switched off, then fold together a few layers of tinfoil and wrap around the sensor.
5. Use a hairdryer to slowly melt the ice. Melt it around areas where it appears to be hanging on, such as the corners of the cooling element or bolts, as well as any thin sections below the main block of ice around the cooling element, which will be supporting the main block. Use a plastic ice scraper to remove ice but not near pipes or sensor.
Warning: Be careful using electrics around water & melting ice & drips.
6. Below the cooling element, there is a drip channel & drain hole. If this hole is full of ice, pour a small amound of warm water down, leave for 10 seconds and pour a bit more until clear.
In the fridge, clear the drain hole in the same way.
Warning: Do not pour a lot of water down, as this water drains onto a tray above the hot compressor at the rear of the fridge freezer to be evaporated by the heat of the compressor and the tray will only hold a small amount.
7. When all ice is removed, dry all moisture. Put the shelves back. Close door. Turn on fridge freezer. Turn up the freezer temperature to your normal setting. Turn on fast freeze if available. After 1 hour, check with a thermometer. It should be cold enough after 1 or 2 hours.

I have a dometic rm 2652 in a 2003 travel trl. The propane side works. The elect side quit working. There is power to plug. The lights for auto and fridge inter. also work. The two fuses are good.


Unplug hydro plug to fridge. Remove cover on circuit board. Follow wires from heating element, to terminals on circuit board. ( probably J7 and J8 ) . With an AC volt meter or multimeter set to AC voltage, turn fridge on hydro, and leave door open on fridge so that it calls for cooling. To be sure it's calling for cool, try gas first, when it's starts, you know it's calling for cool, then switch to AC operation. Now test for voltage at the 2 terminals that the heating element were/are attached to. If you get 100-120 VAC, then replace the heating element. If not get back to me and I'll walk you through a couple more tests.

My side by side Fridge has been running at 13 degrees for a few days.,the freezer is normal. We noticed some "ice build up , took the cover off and all the elements etc... were iced over, we have...


This is what is happening. All "frost free" refrigerators are not truly frost free. The cooling comparment elements frost up with moisture from the air. Every 6 or 8 hours or so the fridge shuts down. then . small electric heaters fitted into these cooling elements melt the frost away. The water goes down a tube into what is called a drip pan mounted underneath the fridge. If the drain tube clogs with a piece of paper, or food or algae. The water from the frost melting stays in the pan because the drain is clogged. So each time the fridge defrosts, it builds up ICE not frost and eventually it completely clogs with a block of ice.
The other thing that can happen, is that the timer that controls this cycle fails and the heating elements never turn on. The the fridge then clogs with frost. The fridge will clog with frost if any of the following parts fail. The defrost thermostat which opens up the heater circuit when the coils reach
around 40-50 degrees, the defrost heaters mounted in the cooling coils, or the defrost timer fails.
If your fridge works normally after this, then the drain hole was clogged and you unclogged it. If it gets colder and colder again. Then the timer, defrost thermostat, or the defrost heaters have failed.
Hope this helps. You are welcome to write back to me and tell me what is happening with your fridge. I hope this helps, Best Regards, Mark

If your seals are good on the door and the fridge side is set for a mid range temp ck and make sure the fan is running in the fzr side. The fridge side steals cold from the freezer by directing air from the fzr to the fridge. Also make sure the fzr does not have an ice block in it the back will be frosted up and if you took the back shell off you would see the cooling coils frosted up real bad or even iced if you find this your refrigerator is going to stop working soon. The suspect parts are the defrost timer the heating element in the freezer located with the cooling coils and the defrost limit this is a nickle size disc with one wire running to the end of the heating element it kicks the element on and off to keep it from overheating the fzr. The defrost timer is usually located in the fridge side under the top or backside plastic it will have a slot in it that a flatblade screwdriver will fit it and you can turn it with audible clicks It kicks the heating element in for a few minutes each day if it quits it will not advance. Hope this helps all of the parts can be purchased and installed by the home owner good luck and remember to unplugg before delving into the elect parts.

Samsung fridge RS2630, icing up on freezer and fridge not cooling


Could be the defrost element. If it does not work and melt the ice off of the evaporator, icing will continue and serve as an insulator. Freezer and refrigerator temps will suffer.
If you unplug the unit and let it defrost for a day and plug back in it will work fine till it freezes up again.

The refrigerator portion has quit cooling.


I have the same problem and have found that if you take the panel off inside the refrigerator and with a blow dryer defrost it. It should work for a few weeks. I have been doing this once a month since March and I hope to found out how to fix it also.

Sounds like you have a defrost problem. The timer could be playing up and taking too long to defrost, which causes the evaporator to ice up, hence no cold air to the fridge and the water line freezes up, hence no water dispensed. When the timer does eventually defrost the fridge then everything returns to normal. This could also be caused by a faulty defrost terminator or bad connection on the defrost element.
