SOURCE: 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.

Check the batteries in the coach for OK. If you left the fridge on for that long without being plugged in, your batteries have drained down. If the batteries are OK, check the fuse in the control board mounted on the back of the fridge. If you have no lights, then you definitely have a 12V problem!!

Hope this helps,

Jeff

Check 12V supply and fuses on lower board. If display functions okay, then look for yellow residue on back of refrigerator near burner. If yes, then cooling unit has leaked and needs to be replaced. See if recall kit has been installed, and check for 12V at both sides of limit switch. If no power on either side, then thermal link has blown, and need to be replaced, If 12V on one side, but not the other, than limit is tripped, and needs to be reset, by pushing button, or if not resetting, then replace, Check for obstructions to the bottom and top vent to make sure they are not blocked, On models with top side vent, check cooling fan for proper operation.

google search shows that it is a 3 way fridge --12v/ mains /gas
it will operate off the battery, mains plug in ,or from a gas bottle
so --yes it will operate without a gas connection
it is not suitable for a built in application but is stand alone unit

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)

My dometic fridge will not turn on


Check to see if you have a switch for storage, on, off etc. usually between doors, or near top right corner of fridge compartment. It may be in wrong position.

Gas side of fridge works perfect all day, stops during night!


Sounds like you have some blockage issues and the venturi tube and pilot may need a more complete cleaning. It's possible that the supply pipes have rusted enough on the inside that you're getting small rust particles in the gas and thus into the fridge. You may have to replace the supply lines to resolve this, but...

...rather than 2nd guess what's happening, here's the a link to the diagnostic service manual for your model. You may have to enter in a code to access it once on the website, but this manual will help you troubleshoot your fridge like a pro.

I left my Dometic RM2500 fridge in the gas postion for two weeks ( Ishut off the gas at the bottle instead of switching the fridge off),now the light won't come on to light.

If the batteries are OK, check the fuse in the control board mounted on the back of the fridge. If you have no lights, then you definitely have a 12V problem!!

I have a Dometic fridg in my 2005 motorhome and when I start my f


You need to unpush the gas button on the front control. If the gas button is pushed in, then it is trying to run on gas and with the tank empty, it is unable to light. That is why the check light is coming on. If you turn the gas side off and have it on auto, it should switch to the AC side and work fine.

Hope this helps,
