Question about Refrigerators
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.

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.

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.

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.
