I have a Dometric 2652 refrigerator that does not run on AC. The heater element has 44 ohms resistance. The J7 and J8 do not have power. The 3 and 5 amp fuses are good.

SOURCE: Will not run on AC electric. Resistance is 44 ohms in heater element. No power to J7 and J8.

Check the circuit breaker that powers the dryer. It will be 2 identical breaker with a metal pin connecting their reset handles. One of them is tripped internally which only leaves 120 volts so the lights and electronic controls work but not the heating element. Don't just reset the breaker, replace it.

I have a Winni Minni with Norcold refrigerator 682. I have change board and element,but its not working on electric only on gas, prpblems ?? I live in Norway.


Sounds like your selector knob may net be making proper contact with electricity. You have changed everything else. You could check power available with a multimeter to your element. If power not available to your element, back trace to source and check for burned wires or breaks in wiring.
Hope this helps!

Place heating element on dometic 2652 . The 2 heater leads j7 and j8 need plugged back in. Does it matter which goes where? they are both black wires


heating elements are simply resistance wires and allow current flow in either direction
so there is noconsideration for polarity
either way will be correct

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 refrigerator electric position won't cool, could it be the fuses? If so, where are the fuses? So I can check them out. Thank you


Hi Patti,

If you are sure that your controls are set to cool in electric, then the rest of this will apply to the backside of the fridge. Double check, with a table lamp or simiiar, that you have power to the outlet that the fridge plugs into. This outlet is generally a protected outlet by a GFCI outlet located in the kitchen or bath areas. If the lamp works on the outlet, keep going. If not, reset GFCI and/or check our circuit breaker panel.

There are fuses on the Power Module, located on the back of the fridge, under a plastic rectangular housing. The DC fuse will be 3 Amp the AC fuse will be 5 Amp. If you are getting any kind of lights on the front, then the DC fuse will be okay. If your AC fuse is blown, then you need to check for a shorted heater. Disconnect the heater leads (after unplugging the fridge from AC). These will be the leads at J7 and J8 terminals. Unplug the leads, and use a multimeter to measure resistance between each lead. You should have approx. 44 ohms, +/- 10%. Also measure each lead to the case of the heater (follow the wires to the chimney). Any continuity reading here indicates a heater that is shorted to the case.

Good Luck!

Fridge works on gas...but not on AC


Your heater should measure 44 ohms, give or take 10%.

95 Ohms is way off. The RM2310 uses a 92 ohm heating element, perhaps you installed / were sold the wrong heating element?

Not working on ac on propane freezer gets down to


Possible bad thermistor in the unit. Open the front fridge door and view the cooling fins across the back. On the right hand side is a clip with a wire going to it. Slide that up the cooling fins towards the top and see if that fixes the problem. If it does not, then access the rear panel and check the ohm resistance in the thermistor. Remove the cover of control board and unplug the two wire plug (white). Ohm resistance should be present on the thermistor.
