Hi there. When calling for cold, flame should be large and blue. If orange, clean mixing tube, flue, chimney. If still orange, adjust "air" inlet on mixing tube to get blue flame.
Thanks

I have a dometic rm 2811 and i put in a new board,ever thing seams to work as it should but it will not get cold, there is no boiling sound.Thanks Sid


There is chance that the back panel in the freezer is frosted up then it indicates a defrost problem. If no frost listen for the fan in the freezer.
If you don't hear it then it may be the problem.
Not circulating the cold air.

Hi!
The air regulator door/flap/shutter, what ever they call it, is not working or the temperature sensor for this device is not working.

Dometic refrigerator model RM 2193 for RV works only in the DC and LP Gas mode. two days ago the AC mode was still working and stopped yesterday (outside temperature was about 40 degrees...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Operators manual:
http://www.gas-refrigerators.com/pdf/RM2193-manual.pdf
Parts manual:
http://www.scamptrailers.com/Portals/0/Dometic_Refrig_RM2193_PartsList.pdf
If you look at the last page of the parts list (page 10) it is showing a thermostat across the Black and white wires.
There is not a fuse that I can see. The fuse has to be external to the unit. You should be able to read continuity (resistance) of the AC heating element at the power cord with the AC switch ON.
AC Power source must be removed to perform resistance checks.

No continuity there are 2 possibile failures (Other than wiring)
1. AC heating element
2. Thermostat.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Dometic 2811 gas/AC refrigerator poor operation on gas mode.


Your gas valve is sticking. Could be a bad thermocouple.
Set it to come on, then with a screwdriver handle or something similar, tap,tap,tap gently on the gas valve to see if it lights.
Once it unsticks it should operate OK.
If it does not unstick, replace the gas valve.

Dometic rm 2612. Shuts down on gas.


Ron;
Check the burner assembly. 1 screw, remove the sheet metal cover and clean it. The burner collects rust. This is the likely. Other issues would be the gas pressure usually checked with a manometer. Should 11" of water column. If your furnace works good then the gas pressure is probably ok. Also could have a faulty ignitor which sends a miliamp signal back to the circuit board. Check the burner first, after that leave the cover off and turn the fridge on. Watch the ingnitor attempt to lite the burner. Be sure the spark is going to the burner and not shorting out on the sheet metal it is mounted in. If it is shorting to the frame the ignitor needs replacing.

One problem may be high dc volts it should be around 13.5 max your convertor may be developing to much voltage. Relay is on dc side you have more than enough. The contol board would be your next check. Some places that sell them may be willing to check if you bring it in.
