SOURCE: Freezer and Fridge side not cooling

Sounds like your Defrost heater is burned up. It is located in the back of the freezer compartment behind the lower cover. Look at the base of the condensor. Two screws hold the heater and two wire connectors. The heater is in a glass tube. Measure continuity from one end to the other, you should see a few ohms. if it is open, your heater is definitely burned. I got a good deal on a replacement heater on Ebay. I think it was $17 including shipping. The heater being bad will cause major frost buildup in the back of the freezer and stop the Ice maker from working and damage food. Be sure to thorougly dry the freezer compartment prior to putting it back in operation. If too much moisture is present, the new heater will evaporate the moisture into the Ice dispensoer motor and solenoid that swtiches from crushed to solid ice. Hope this helps. it has nothing to do with your problem, but please Check out my website www.playstationclinic.com

You more than likely need to replace the control cable between the upper and lower board. It comes as a kit with the upper board. You can also do a bypass test by unplugging your thermoster from the circuit board. The thermoster is the temperature control for the refrigerator nothing to do with the freezer.

SOURCE: freezer not freezing ,fridge not cooling ,no ice

Is the Compressor Running? Put your hand on compressor and see if you feel a vibration or if it is cold or hot. On the side there is a start relay. Remove that and shake it. If it rattles then it is bad. Replace and you will be running again. If compressor is running then most likely compressor is bad. Check frost pattern on the evaporator in the freezer section. If it appears that compressor is running and the evaporator is a little cold and maybe even has a little frost on the top of it then compressor is insufficient,

Fridge worked fine on gas last night but won't today.. Gas is at cook top


Gas refrigerators work off a small flame. That flame heats a part some call a thermocouple. Over time that part goes bad. Also Propane produces a carbon like soot. It sometimes blocks the small hole the gas flows through. May just need cleaned near the flame area.

I have a dometic RM 2862 refrigerator and smelled ammonia and then heated up but no signs of leaks, is the cooling unit bad?


Is it still working? If you can smell ammonia, I would say that there is a very small leak. Over time, the fridge will lose its efficiency and take longer and longer to cool down. Eventually, it wont cool at all once all the gas has escaped. From what I remember of Dometic fridges, is that they used to supply exchange refrigeration units. You remove the entire refrigeration system and swap it for a new or rebuilt system. It worked out a lot cheaper than buying a new fridge.

Consul propane fridge. No cooling. Pilot and flame work fine. I cleaned and checked flue. Has been no leakage. Fridge has been unused for 6 months. Approx 10 years old.


Check to make sure it is level. If so, the thermostat may have failed causing the fridge not to try cooling. If you still need help feel free to call Mt Hope Hardware at 330-674-7474 and ask for service. We stock most of the parts you should need. Thanks

Fridge/freezer in a motorhome has stopped working on gas any help & advice would be greatly appreciated.


I am guessing this is a "three way fridge" 12 volt, 240 volt and lpg gas.

This is an absorbtion refrigerator and it uses heat to drive the cycle.
The things to do are;
Clean the gas jet, Piezio starter and thermocouple.
Also clean the rust, carbon and scale away from the heater tube and chimney.
Hopefully all will be good again

Is it safe to use a gas (propane) fridge inside a tent


it is not safe to use your 'gas'/'propane' stove inside your tent --- it puts off carbon dioxide and you can't smell it or see it and it fills up small spaces very fast and it CAN kill you. only use it outdoors or if you have a exhaust tube that exhausts to the outside.
