Not cooling in hot temps

My Dometic Rm2852 warms up when outside temp go above 85 degrees. We have tested alot of the voltages and installed a extra exhaust fan to move air but still fails, it's been like this since day one in 2005

Double check clearances around fridge, which should be zero on sides and top, as well as check baffle in stack, which should be 1-7/8" above burner. Also check door gaskets with paper (it should drag through when doors closed. Does the burner stay lit when on propane, even though temperature is increasing inside fridge?

On hot day your unit may not cool enough. Make sure that outside unit is clean, filter inside should be clean. If all above is good your unit may be low on Freon.

My 2007 Chevy HHR 2.2L, coolant temp sensor is reading that the coolant temp is 20 degrees warmer than the outside temp after sitting for over 12 hours and the operating temp gets to 214 degrees without...


Sure the engine coolant will be warmer than the outside temperture and if the car has been sitting a long time in cold weather and the outside temperture warms up it could be the other way around. The coolant temperture sensers aren't real accurate as they are a relaitive senser beween hot and cold and the numbers reported don't have to be real just the change from hot to cold and the reching of the coolant to the operating temperture. Noe it the senser doesn't read the opertating temperture coprrectly you'll have all kinds of problems. The therostaste will try to set the temperture of the water to it's set temperture and can open or close completly to get 195 degrees F. Many times if it's too cold then the stat is bad and needs to be replaced This shows up in alot of cars first thing after winter and the first onset of cold weather when the daily tempertures vary the most from day to night.

Warm temps cause cupboard shelf above refrigerator to heat up


well thats normal mate you cannot prevent this ... perhaps try draging your fridge away from the wall so it sits about 100mm off the wall

Does not heat real hot or cool real cold . dometic duotherm penguin markings on 85 or so unit


Heat real hot? Is this a heat pump or do you have a heat strip installed. Get a regular thermometer and put it in the outgoing vents of the unit. Register the temperature there and then the outside temp. If it is cooling at 17 to 23 degrees below ambient temperature, the manufacturer says this is fine. Try cleaning the condenser out on the top of the rv. Gently hose the rear condenser out until all the dirt and grime is removed the unit. Try cooling again and see if it is better.

A/c doesn't remove moisture in the room? even when exchanger is set on open or closed--no moisture in collection tray either model #agj3211daxt2    G.E.


An A/C unit is a dehumidifyer BUT Unit are rated in Pints of water, a Unit in Florida might need a de humiditiyer connected to it, the air is heavy with humidity. Another reason is that the Unit is under sized or not allowed to run long enough (?) Infor. on what State you live in would help and the size of the apt. or house the unit is covering. The best T / H would be 70* and 55 H and that would be on the cool side for most people , avg temps in a house would be 74* 65%, body temps are 98.6 most A/C unit are rated at 90* amp temp ( outside ) if the condenser is dirty this will cut the performance on a hot day over 85* Keep unit clean -replace filter (s) . If your getting a 15 degree reading between outside and inside your doing good the best would be 20 degrees ( depending on heat load) windows, and sun. Actic fans remove 30% of the heat -it will drop the temp from 120 to about 85, this can save you a lot of money in A/C bills and help cool the house in warm day when you don't need the A/C.

Dometic refrigerator inconsistent temperature


Yes the clearances on gas absorption frig is critical. Not to say there is not another problem. Is the thermister attached to the frig fins?
