Question about Dometic RM2852 Refrigerator

1 Answer

The top freezes great, however the bottom will never get below 50

Was told to power the thermostat with 115 volts and if the bottom gets cooler then the problem is the thermostat. Does this sound correct???

would this make the board the problem??

If the top is running super cold and the bottom is luke warm it usually is a sign that your defrost drain is blocked and ice has formed all over your cooling coil path into the fridge section. Thus blocking airflow.

I would use up the food in the fridge now and then turn it off for a couple days to let it defrost manually. If you get a huge flow of water that overflows your fridges catch pan...you probably have that problem.

The answer is to locate and clear out the drain line of all guck using hot water and perhaps an improvised snake of some sort. You might need to remove the inner panel from your freezer to locate the cooling coil drain.

Let me know how it goes ok? Good luck!

Cannot get ANY of the fans to work.


one half of the breaker you moved is not making contact in the panel or moving the breaker caused the fan relay to be on the same 115 volt leg as the power leg. If the breaker is connected to two points in the panel and you have 115 volts on each side of the breaker (230 volts) You can move the breaker one notch higher or lower or switch wires on the breaker to correct the circuit.

It is not holding temp. its range is 30 to 49 degrees in one hour


As a refrigerator, it should not go below about 34 degrees. If it is going down to 30, it may be freezing up on the coil. If you get a chance, do this: unplug the refrigerator and let it sit for 4 hours with the door open. If the coil is frozen it will defrost. You can feel the coils inside the box at the top back inside the unit. If you feel ice at any time it is an indication that it is getting too cold. Once the inside coils freeze over, the air can't flow through the coils and the unit will get warmer and warmer. When it is defrosted, set the thermostat just above the off setting. Let it run until the compressor shuts off. See what the temperature reads on a thermometer inside the cooler. If it is not cool enough move the thermostat one number colder and let it run an hour. Take your time, let it equalize before you change the thermostat. Also if the cooler is empty it is hard to set the thermostat because when you open the door all the cold air escapes and the temp will change rapidly. If it is full of cold food, opening the door won't change the temperature very quickly. Also check the radiator coils at the bottom of the cooler behind the grill. If it is clogged with dust or grease, the compressor may overheat and shut off prematurely.

Glasses that become cloudy after a few washes. The temperature is never above 55.


hi
Dishwashers usually run on 115-volt or 120-volt power. The water they use comes directly from the water heater, and wastewater is drained into the sink's drainpipe. The dishwasher is not connected to the cold-water supply. For best dishwashing results, set the temperature control of the water heater to no less than 140 degrees Farenheit. Water cooler than this usually doesn't get the dishes clean, unless your dishwasher is a newer model that preheats incoming water. The water shutoff for the dishwasher is typically located below the adjoining sink.
