Question about Dometic Refrigerators

1 Answer

We purchased a used 2004 Aliner with the Dometic refrigerator. The Dometic refrigerator is a 3-way refrigerator. The refrigerator was never used. Today we turned the refrigerator on set the control (A) to electric, set control (B) to 4 as instructed to do. Nothing happened. (Could not hear anything running at all.) My husband took the outside panel off; unpluged the refrigerator from the receptical; inserted a circuit tester into the outlet and it showed it was getting power and it was wired correctly. Pluged the refrigerator back in and still nothing happened. What do you think could be wrong and what do we need to do next? Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Margaret

SOURCE: Side by side stopped working but clicling noises every second two.

Ok the motherboard is malfunctioning. Ive observed this exact problem before. Replace the board and all will be normal again. If you keep lettig it click and click it may finally kill that relay that you descibed to me or even worse the compressor itself.

pencj,
My honest answer is that I have seen this before and in most cases the board works properly after the reboot.
Although you may not have lost power, you may have gotten a voltage spike. I would cancel the service man coming out, (I am a working service man myself) he probably will give you two options. #1 Wait to see if this happens again and if it does happen again soon, the board should be replaced. #2 replace the board now.
My suggestion is to soon go purchase a surge suppressor to plug into. This does not need to be a power strip style. A good quality suppressor that only has one or 2 plug in's or plugs directly into the wall receptacle should do fine. Your refrigerators maximum amp draw is listed on the model # sticker inside the refrigerator compartment.
I hope this helps, supertechks

SOURCE: LFX 25950TT problem

Just had this same problem. We were away at Disney for four days - turned the icemaker off before we left. We have the LG french door double drawer freezer model. Came home, the ER IF code was displayed. Wouldn't dispense water or ice. Took the icebox out, and it was all frozen in the augers. Then I read on the door something to this effect - "if you turn off the icemaker, it will not continue to cool the ice. This will cause the ice to melt and leak out of the unit, and when it refreezes, the dispenser will not produce ice or water."

So, I took the ice box out, emptied it, reinstalled it, and the unit os making ice and dispensing water as I write.

Again, if you turn off the icemake, empty the ice box, or you will get the error message when you start the ice maker again.

SOURCE: Understanding Outlet Circuit Test Results

open ground=ground wire (green) is not connected to the circuit box ground or to the earth ground.
(there should have steel rod place in the ground by the local electric company, and gtound wire is connected to that rod).
Open Neutral= same as open ground. unless you are testing 240V, which have 2 hot (110v) and a neutral (0V).
Open Hot= open 110v line (black)
hot/ground reversed= if you understand the above, then this sould be self explaintory.
same a hot/neu. reverse.

if you don't understand how electric wiring works, My suggestion is to stay out.

Our dometic rm2501 is not getting cold at all/was working fine & just quit


if this is a gas absorption refrigerator make sure it's level while operating.
check for heat at the roof vent if no heat check heating element or, gas burner behind the refrigerator accessible through the refrigerator outside hatch; next: check the relay and, inverter it is located under the refrigerator front if all these things check ok and, especially if you find a yellow power on the gas refrigeration unit the tanks behind the refrigerator box; you must replace the gas refrigeration unit by: removing the refrigerator from the cabinet from the front then lay it down and remove the gas refrigeration unit replace it with a new one but, don't forget to remove the 3' long spiral metal strip from the old gas refrigeration unit exhaust vent and, reinstall it in the new gas refrigeration unit the gas refrigeration units can be purchased online.

Dometic Refrigerator Model RM 2820 Stopped working purchased 5-4-2004 . Tom Collins


Hi Tom,

If your fridge quit working altogether, check your DC fuses in the fuse box, as well as the back of the fridge under the black plastic cover (3 amp). Though the fridge uses LP and 120vac to cool, it is controlled by 12 volts.
