This is a common problem with, Dometic RM2807 or RM2811 and most latermodel Dometics with upper controls. The refrigerator's "check light"comes on or the refrigerator just shuts down seemingly for no reason.Another common problem occurs while on 120v. The refrigerator mightswitch to gas or just shut down even while you have a good 120v supply.

the Dometic RV refrigerators with the push buttonupper control boards have a problem with the main power boards. Thepower board components are encased in yellow epoxy, reducing heattransfer. This gets them to run too hot which in turn canoften cause the power board to fail completely or cause problems suchas listed above. The only effective repair is to replacethe power board. It is not advicable to go for the Dometic replacement as they too canfail. The Dometic replacement also requires you to rewire the board andgas valve. The only board we recommend is the P-711. The P-711 not onlywill fix these problems but does not require the rewiring. It uses allthe standard wiring. See Power Boards


good luck with your fix

CWH24A-R Window Air Everything works but no cold air. compressor does not come on


Hello...
are you sure the device warm?
Inside the device is a valve that reverses the direction of gas. If warming means no loss of gas. If not, then the valve is locked .Try lowering the minimum desired temperature in COLD MODE and wait 5 minutes, you should call the warranty because it is still valid.

check the condition of the key battery as it may be low in cold weather and not communicating properly with the immobiliser.. I suggest this because batteries generally fail more often in cold weather compared to warmer climates.

Our rheem pronto tankless rutg-74xp red light will come home indicating hot water and stay on about 2 minutes and then turns off we have turned off and back on and let water run for 5 minutes and will come...


Before calling service technician, open following link for Rheem troubleshooting resources.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

List of causes MIGHT include one of following:
Bad household circuit breaker that powers electronics, or loose wire inside outlet where tankless plugs in.
Tankless fuses and control board.
Water flow rate too low. Minimum .8 gallon required (depending on model)
Tankless inlet filter clogged.
Household aerators clogged at faucets.
Crossover at single-handled faucet
If installed, there can be crossover at mixing valve.
Faulty household check valve, including check valve on re-circulation system if that system is installed.
Restriction in household water line, such as clog at elbow.
Unequal pressure in household hot and cold lines, caused by restriction in hot line. When single-handled faucet turns on, the cold water pressure is higher so hot does not flow and tankless will not turn on.
Loose wire connection inside tankless.
Unit temperature set too high.
Unit temperature set too low.
Water temperature is very hot coming out of tap, so more cold is added, but that reduces amount of hot water flow, so tankless turns off because flow rate is too low.
On some tankless, if water is preheated by solar or other indirect source, the burner will not activate.
High mineral content in water > delime tankless yearly
Misaligned temperature sensor
Low gas pressure. Wrong type of gas. Undersized gas line.
Too many faucets on at same time.
Faulty tankless water valve. Water valve stuck.
Fluctuating household water pressure, for example MUD and PUD district water pressure problems or water well pressure.
Faulty household pressure reducing/regulating valve if installed.
Faulty household pressure tank, if installed -or- pressure tank needs to be installed.

I would guess a bad spark plug wire. Moist air will provide a path for the spark to jump to ground from a bad plug wire. You could test with a windex bottle filled with water and spray the engine in different spots. Also check for moisture under the distibutor cap.

Whirlpool gas dryer rotates, gas ignites but goes out, won't reig


coils on the gas valve, especially the single coils that whirlpool uses, break down after use. They may ohm out good when cold and the burner may light 1, 2, or 3 times, then you get ignition failure. Coils are bad. Hint when replacing coils. the front coil which has 3 terminals has a metal sleeve inside the coil. Make sure that sleeve stays with the valve. It can get stuck in the old coil and thrown away. Good luck
