Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a french door Dometic in my 2006 Tiffin RV. It is not working and service tech says it is rusty. Can it be repaired?

The coach is in Myrtle Beach while I am in Maryland for surgery. I am hearing from the tech but have not seen the problem. Should a'06 Dometic last longer?

An '06? Really? Call an RV service center to see if parts are available. NOT the same place that repair person came from.
You will need a model and serial number B-4 you call them.

SOURCE: Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works

There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

SOURCE: Water dispenser quit working on GE Profile French door 'frig.

The dispensers could be clogged with mineral deposits. If you look in your care manual it talks about a water vinegar solution that you pour into the top of the despenser, let sit, and then drain it through the back. I had a similar problem and it was because some of the water that was sitting in the top of the unit(where the gallon jug sits; under the black think) was full of frozen water which was blocking the water dispenser.

SOURCE: our rv has a dometic rm2600 fridge that smells of

Sorry to give you the bad news. The ammonia smell is the the refrigerant
leaking out. Dometic uses ammonia that is heated and then condensed to cool. It will all leak out and quit cooling.
The fridge is wrecked. There are shops that rebuild the units. Beings as ammonia is corrosive one must assume there may be other leaks ready to appear. There are RV salvage yards that sell good used units.
Again Sorry for your loss.

Does not cool the coach enough

It is one of a couple of things. Either the air conditioner4 needs recharging, the compressor is not coming on, or the ac unit is to small for the coach.

I have a dometics air system in a 2006 fema camper the air works but when it cuts in the silver box in the ceiling off it will not restart it just makes a clicking noise

Sounds like the circuit breaker for 120V side of AC is tripping due to high amperage draw, which could be caused by weak breaker, faulty compressor, faulty start capacitor, or even improper wiring to list a few things. You should have it checked by a qualified RV tech or AC tech to determine which is the cause.

To see if your unit is on the recall list & what to do, try the link below.
If your unit is on the list, DO NOT run your refrigerator on propane until the kit is installed

Dometic a/c on fifth wheel with comfort controls

First lets address the heating issue. These are not furnaces but are known as "Chill Chasers" and are not designed to "heat" your RV Attempting to use them as a whole coach heater will burn them up in short order.

Your A/C sounds like the coils are freezing up. There is a small probe that is placed into the coils. you can see it from under the unit if you remove the interior cover - a little 1/8" in dia. silver piece flattened on one end to slide between the coil fins with a wire going back to the control box
It may have fallen out
