Its the problem of control board.Not the problem of power board.Its the problem of control board.The power board is good as you mentioned that it works good on electric mode. You can get this control board from the dometic service center or from the Nearest RV repair company. Or as per your model number you can get it from the link on the link.
For more trouble shooting check out this as follows:-- The cooling unit is most likely not in need of replacement if the unit works on one heat source but not the other. The cooling unit however might be showing the first signs of trouble.
Is the refrigerator level? Yes - continue
Is anything blocking the refrigerators vents? If no continue
Are the gasket rubbers around the door/s damaged or misaligned? If yes realign or repair - if no continue
Is the gas flame on and is it as large as normal? The burneror gas jet might need to be cleaned or the gas regulator might be out of adjustment. If so the unit will need repairs - click here for Dometic or Norcold manuals for the more technically inclined - or click here for factory repairs etc. - if no continue
Is there an ammonia smell coming from inside the refrigerator? If yes and cleaners or disinfectants haven't been used recently (they can smell like ammonia) then chances are that the cooling unit is leaking and will need replacingclick here - if no continue
Is there is a yellowish powder or stain on or near the refrigerator cooling unit? If yes then refrigerant is leaking from the cooling unit and chances are will need replacing click here.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

My camper has a dometic RM2652 refrig. the electric works, but it won't transfer to butane

Most dometic refrigerator have a button you need to push when you shift the mode switch to gas. This button holds the gas valve open until the thermopile generates enough power to hold the valve open. So on most shift the mode switch to gas, hold the button until the flashing light goes out. The flashing light indicates the gas valve is energized and the unit has shifted to gas mode. Depending on when the unit was last used it may take up to 5 minutes for the gas supply to purge the gas lines to the refrigerator. So be patient.
Hope this helps.

What do I check to fix my Dometic Americana refrigerator. It won't start using electric or gas.

Fist off before you get crazy replacing things make sure the camper is level when testing this. Gas will not run to it if you are not level. Also make sure the gas is turned on and make sure you have selected automatic or gas only on your fridge. Also give it about an hour before you test the temp. These take a bit longer to start feeling cool. If all of that does not work you will need to check the refrigerant, igniter(for the gas side) and the compressor. Also make sure the fuses are good to go at the main panel and that the breakers are in the "on" position

Problem with the electric on fridge not working

Hello Paintinfool3,

I have worked on these in the DISTANT past...
They are a great CLASSIC design... Working on gas
means you are 90 to 95% all good

The electric comprises two basic elements
only confused because you have both AC & DC modes.

Just for simplicity sake the ELECTRIC section
(heater & thermostat) section in the BELOW begins
with SECTION 63...

You need a volt-meter with an OHM scale...
(the $9 kind... HARBORFRIEGHT gives away).

There is a yes/no trouble shooting guide.

Also CUSTOMER CONTACT numbers in the very back.

Phone TECH Support at ... 1 (219) 463-4858

Happy hunting!!
