Question about Dometic Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a Dometic Model RM 3862 in my RV that is not cooling either on ac or propane. The coils are not heating on the back. All incoming voltages check out and all fuses I could find are not blown.

SOURCE: Unit cools fine on 120V, selecting GAS CHECK light on.

Do you hear a clicking sound If not. there is a black box inside the out side door. Check the fuses in it.

SOURCE: I bought an RV with

There is a damper inbetween the freezer and fridge that is either frozen shut - or the solenoid that opens and closes it has failed.

Without too much trouble - you can simply unplug and thaw the freezer for 24 hours. This should be enough to free it up if it's the door that is the issue.

Thanks!!

I have a ~4year old Dometic RV refrigerator that does not start cooling when started after periods of being shut off (as little as 2-3 days). When I turn it on I can hear the fan start but after 2-3 hours...


ammonia absorption refrigerators need continuous heat either by
a heating coil powered by a transformer or, a propane flame
check/replace your gas thermocouple or, transformer to the heating coil located on the refrigerator back

Ac heat element heats but fridge isnt cooling


There are several possible causes to your problem. The first, is that your RV is parked on an incline and the ammonia that is the cooling medium has accumulated in the tube and that impacts the process required to cool. The second in that the lower control board is bad. The third is that you have lost the ammonia cooling medium from a leak in the coils.

But you should also check to see how it works on propane. If that works then it can't be anything to do with the Ammonia coolant.

I have a dometic rm 2652 in a 2003 travel trl. The propane side works. The elect side quit working. There is power to plug. The lights for auto and fridge inter. also work. The two fuses are good.


Unplug hydro plug to fridge. Remove cover on circuit board. Follow wires from heating element, to terminals on circuit board. ( probably J7 and J8 ) . With an AC volt meter or multimeter set to AC voltage, turn fridge on hydro, and leave door open on fridge so that it calls for cooling. To be sure it's calling for cool, try gas first, when it's starts, you know it's calling for cool, then switch to AC operation. Now test for voltage at the 2 terminals that the heating element were/are attached to. If you get 100-120 VAC, then replace the heating element. If not get back to me and I'll walk you through a couple more tests.

My Dometic RM2852 only cools when LP (Propane) Gas is turned on. Why won't it cool with AC only?


Good chance element is faulty. If you have a multimeter, carefully remove cover on circuit board and check voltage at terminals where element connects for 120Volt AC (hydro). The element is the round rod that slides in side of your stack and 2 black wires go from it back to circuit board. Make sure you have door open and fridge is calling for cool, otherwise you won't get voltage reading there. Best way to make sure it's calling for cool, is to open door, switch to propane, then when it lights on propane, you know it's calling for cool, then switch to AC (hydro) operation to test. If you get voltage reading from spades on board, and element isn't getting hot to touch within 10 minutes, replace element.
