If it is a 3 way fridge pull it out and turn it upside down and leave for an hour or so and then turn back for an hour or so and continue this for half a dozen times the gas inside the pipes have seperated and require mixing up particually if it is fairly old or has been sitting for a long period as u discribed

If the back of the refrigerator is getting warm and the refrigerator is level then you more then likely will require a replacement cooling unit. You can visit our online Store or give us a call directly 1-888-782-6665 We ship throughout North America!

I have a Dometic fridge model number RM2612 in a camper that i just purchased used and the fridge isn't cooling. The freezer section seems to be okay. The metal plate in the freezer gets cold but


Make sure it is level, has proper airflow out through top vent. Also check baffle, or stack where flame sits under and blow it out good with compressed air to make sure it's clean. If you smell a hint or strong smell of ammonia, shut it off, it has a leak in cooling unit. If all ok in that area, shut it off, disconnect and plug propane line, disconnect power and remove the fridge. Turn the fridge upside down for a day or 2, then re-install and let it sit 24 hrs before turning it back on. Quite often that will take care of any blockage in flow of cooling liquid, and get things back to normal if cooling unit is still good.

Hello!

Your fridge might be suffering from a bubble, but is unlikely. I am more suspicious that insects (dirt daubers) have built nests on the cooling fins (at the upper rear) and air flow through the fins is being blocked.

Try switching your fridge to LP mode for a day, and see if your cooling performance increases. If so, take a look at the heater, try checking its resistance. Resistance should measure 44 ohms, +/- 10%. While you are checking for insects, also take a look around the burner area of the fridge. You are looking for a white or yellow residue. This would be evidence of a coolant leak, and the cooling unit would need to be replaced.

Given the time of year, air conditioners are being used heavily, including those in trailers. If you are using your air conditioner, and trying to use the fridge as well, make sure that your electrical cord is large enough. You want to use as short of an extension cord as possible, with as heavy gauge as possible (10ga minimum). If you are using an extension cord, or are plugged into an outlet that can't meet the current demands, that will cause voltage to drop. As voltage drops, heater (in the fridge) drops with it. If the output drops too low, there will not be enough heat from the heater to power the absorption cycle for the fridge.

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.

Camper fridge dont cool


I also had the same Model Make. I removed my fridge and placed it upside down, occasionally shaking fridge within a 24 hr period. This seemed to re-mix the ammonia solution and the fridge is working.
This may work for you but look for yellow stains if you see any your fridge is leaking and would require repair.

Transported a fridge on its side, waited 24hrs, plugged in.


Transporting frig on side probably damaged the compressor due to the oil inside draining from bottom. Do you know if the bulbs were working before you purchased? If they were you may have damaged the door switch, easy fix, just replace. Compressor replacement should be left to a pro. Probably looking at a couple hundred. One other thought is you might have caused a gas leak during transporting, another job for a pro.
