Hi, check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost. Check the freezer (evaporator) fan to see if it is running. Check the condenser coil (under the unit) for blockage from dust. Check the condenser fan (under the unit) to see if it is running.

If you have frost in the freezer, there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem, you can check the defrost terminator, defrost heater and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control if used on your unit or the main control board if so equipped. These things usually require dismantling the freezer and other areas of the refrigerator to be checked..

You could defrost the freezer by disconnecting the power to the refrigerator and letting it sit for at least 24 hours with BOTH DOORS WIDE OPEN to allow the frost to melt completely but it will build up again in 1-2 weeks and start the warming up again.

Take care

Just bought a Dometic DM2862 fridge. Freezer on goes down to 12 deg. and lower unit down to 38 deg., but during day the temps are: freezer - 22 deg. and lower - 44 deg. Is this normal? Can I fix this?


While there is some fluctuations in temperature in Dometics from night and day, but it is usally the reverse of what you state. Warmer in the day time when the unit is opened more. I would check the temperature settings and if they are correct then check the thermostat.

Bought a brand new LG bottom freezer fridge a couple of months ago. I like the refridgerator part to be cold, so we keep the fridge temp on 6 (1-7 are temp choices. 7 being the coldest). We had the freezer...


If designed as most combination units, one of the two controls influences the temperature directly, the other only determines how much of the generated cold air is allowed to enter the other compartment. The typical arrangement is that setting the freezer temperature determines how often often the compressor runs; the other diverts a portion of the cold air into the refrigerator side.
Using the common thermometer for cold temperatures (~$5 US), adjust the freezer temperature for 0 to -5 degrees F (the often recommended temp.), then the other control for the desired refrigerator temperature, suggested as 35-45 F. This is the most common practice.
If you cannot balance them the way you want, reverse the procedure, setting for refrigerator temp., then freezer.

You have a clogged defrost drain tube. best way is to thaw unit out. Your vents are being blocked so no air flow is pushed down.

Sound like the compressor is having trouble starting. You can purchase a RCO810 to assist the compressor's start winding. If the unit is under 5yrs there should be some warranty (no electrical parts) left in the compressor. It will need to be replaced.
