Replaced the propane refrigerator with a 120v/12v compressor, Norcold DE0061T. Will never use propane cooling again - too many hassels.

Dometic RM2611, Freezes fine, Refrig OK on AC, but warms up when on LP gas. Can I safely increase the orifice size from #53 to #58? Thinking that will increase the flame and produce more heat.


Check the gas regulator and the lines for particles of dirt. You have modified the refrigerator it is going to take some work to find what is wrong. Don't modify the orifice from what it calls for.

Dometic 3way fridge model RM2350R. the fridge works ok, but when i run it on gas the flame lights first time, but the flame indicater does not work,the thermocuple has the right ajustment,is clean,wh


The flame indicator works on very low voltages from electricity generated via the thermocouple. Check the connections and if OK, I would say you are correct in assuming the indicator has failed. These are very sensitive and a bit of a knock can damage them. Try Dometic or Electrolux for a replacement indicator.

Have dometic fridge RM2553. Has been going great. Yesterday showed on red at dial BUT when checked vent it was hot; so going but not showing in green. Safe?I live in my Jayco caravan so this recent problem...


Hi.

The safety mechanism will still be working. The only case it won't be working is when the safety mechanism itself is causing the problem. In that case there will be no risk because flame will be forced to turn off.

The indicator on red is telling you that the fridge is not cooling. It does not affect the safety of your Dometic.

The safety mechanism in your Dometic works using a thermocouple and a safety valve. When either of this will fail the gas flame will turn off, and the fridge will stop cooling. The safety mechanism works even when it is broken, as it does not allow gas valve opening.

About poor cooling, there are a number of reason that may result in insufficient cooling with this kind of fridge.

Check if there is flame, if there is no flame, then testing will start from igniter, coil, flame sensor and safety valve.
Ensure that there is enough ventilation.Thermostat and cooling unit must be tested if flame operations are OK.
On LP gas, check filter. Check pressure regulator and gas from the lines.

No cooling on gas, works great on elect.


I had a similar problem. The flue would get hot and the cooling tubes would get "warm". The refrig would get a LITTLE cool but nothing to be of any help.

I solved it though...it turns out there is a "flue baffle" (twisty little metal thing) that is supposed to hang in the inside of the baffle. It hangs from a screw found on top of the baffle and it is supposed to hang down.

The screw that held mine was corroded and flue baffle had fallen into the baffle and landed on top of the burner.

I ended up fishing the flue baffle out of the top of the baffle with a coat hanger, then rehanging it using a new screw. That solved my problem.

Not sure if this will work for you or not but good luck.

By the way, you can find an owner's manual with a diagram showing the flue, the flue baffle, and the piece of metal holding it here:

http://www.fourwheelcampers.com/DometicRefrigerator.pdf

Look on p.9, figure 9. Item C is the flue baffle and the wire holding it. Item B is the screw that was corroded on mine, and ended up dropping the baffle down to the bottom of the flue.

Below is a link to some generic directions on solving fridge-related problems. I found it to be VERY useful.

Prroblem with rv gas refrigerator Dometic ndr1062


I assume you've checked baffle distance above flame? Anything changed above fridge, as in clearance, ventilation above etc. Maybe even removed a piece of panel, that was used above fridge for vent deflection etc?

I have dometic modle R M 2333. It will not cool when set to gas. But is ok on AC. Burner flame is good, gas flow is good.


If the unit has a good flame and is staying lit throughout the cycle of the fridge, then you probably have a bad cooling unit. Does is cool ok on Electric? If so, then there is another problem. You may have rust build up in the flue that is not allowing the heat from the gas to work correctly. Try taking a screwdriver and small claw hammer. Remove the cover from the burner assembly and place the head of the screwdriver on the flue just above the burner. Tap the screwdriver lightly with the hammer and see if rust falls. If so, continue to do this until it stops. You then need to blow out the burner and try the fridge again.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

Dometic RM2193 Works on 120V, but not on gaz. I succeded in cleaning the burner jet and I get a flame. It ligth well now but the flame very small. The frig doesn't cool. Help ?


These fridges require that the control switches be in the correct position for the power source you want to use. If you try to operate the fridge on gas and have the electric 120V-AC switch on, all you'll get is the gas pilot light to stay lit. Also, when running on gas, the electric has to be off.

Here's a link to the manual for your unit. Print a copy and save an electronic one for future use, in case you lose your printout.

Hope having the manual helps you to get the fridge working on all the power sources you need! Best regards!
