You need to make sure that you follow the manufacturer's recommendations for using the unit with each specific power source. It's important that you have the all switches in the proper position, based on what power source you're using.

Here's the manual for your model, save a copy and print it out and take some time to review the section #3 Operating Instructions on page 6.

What do I check to fix my Dometic Americana refrigerator. It won't start using electric or gas.


Fist off before you get crazy replacing things make sure the camper is level when testing this. Gas will not run to it if you are not level. Also make sure the gas is turned on and make sure you have selected automatic or gas only on your fridge. Also give it about an hour before you test the temp. These take a bit longer to start feeling cool. If all of that does not work you will need to check the refrigerant, igniter(for the gas side) and the compressor. Also make sure the fuses are good to go at the main panel and that the breakers are in the "on" position

Refridgertor is not cooling dometic rm2804


If the fridge is level and the rear coils of the cooling unit get warm and the fridge does not cool then you require a replacement cooling unit. Yours has leaked. Contact ArctiCold Refrigeration We keep it cold Online store: http://www.rvfridgerepair.com/ 60f363ae-5e9d-402e-98c8-b8fed71c2461.jpg

Dometic refrigerator RM 2652 is not working


The fridge needs a 12 volt DC source to operate properly, which should be connected at the back of the fridge, outside behind cover. Check all fuses in your fuse panel as well. The upper controls are powered by 12 volt DC system, and that's what tells the fridge what to do.. (battery or converter)

My fridge is in a pop up tent trailer and exausts out the side. It works fine on electicity but not at all on propane? It is lit and gets hot on the coils, just doesnt cool the fridge. Thanks


Believe it or not those fridges have to be perfectly level to operate on gas. Make sure of this on both axis. Front to rear and left to right.

Freezer working, fridge isn't.


It is possible that your cooling unit is failing due to a blockage. The solution used to cool starts at the top of the fridge and works its way to the bottom. If there is a blockage in the cooling unit it could produce the symptom you have explained.

My Dometic trailer refridgerator is warm but freezer is freezing.


Brandi4723,

Unfortunately, you have a bad cooling unit in your refrigerator. Then ammonia smell means that you have a leak in the unit. TURN THE FRIDGE OFF!!! Do not use the fridge on AC or Gas until you have the cooling unit replaced or buy a new fridge. Depending on the model number and serial number of the fridge, it may be under recall by dometic and you might be able to have it repaired for free. If you will provide me with the model number, serial number and the serial number of the cooling unit (found on the outside of the unit in the fridge compartment, lower tank of cooling unit), I can then tell you the pricing of the repairs or whether it is under recall.

Again, TURN THE FRIDGE OFF and do not use it...RISK OF FIRE!!!!

Hope this helps,

Jeff

New Travel trailer......no fridge!


Unit should still be covered on warranty call dometic directly. The tilting could affect some. If you push the auto button in it should run on electric first if no electric present it then goes to gas. Exception to the rule is if the heating element is not working it does not recognize this so it will stay on electric. Unplug the 110v in the compartment on the outside it should change to gas with in a few seconds. If it does heating element is bad.
