Refrigerator not cooling on electricty or gas


You will first want to ensure the RV is level.
If the RV is level, then open the rear access vent door on the side of the RV to access the rear of the refrigerator. Feel the coils just above the tank on the cooling system. These coils should be warm to the touch. If they are warm and the refrigerator is not cooling then you will require a replacement cooling unit. Also, the most common area for the Dometic 2652 to leak is just above the propane burner area. If it has leaked, you should see a yellow residue in that area. The cooling unit can be changed in approximately 2-3 hours with no specialized tools needed (Arcticold offers 7 day a week free tech support). The old cooling unit will simply unbolt and the new one bolts in. Check out ArctiCold Refrigeration We keep it cold (the highest quality product available) Arcticold New Cooling units come standard with a Lifetime Warranty. Install instructions are also provided with the cooling unit. Arcticold has locations across North America to provide fast delivery. Arcticold cooling units may be purchased over the phone (1-888-782-6665) or through Ebay- Dometic RM2652 Brand New Manufactured Cooling Units LIFETIME WARRANTY

I have a Dometic 2650 refrigerator in my RV. It is leaking a scent of ammonia and we do not know what is causing this or what is leaking. PLease help immediately .


Shut it off immediately and do not use it. Ammonia is sign of coolant leak, thus cooling unit is leaking/faulty, and as I'm sure you know, ammonia is dangerous to inhale etc. Sorry to say but, it's time for a new fridge, and at very least a cooling unit, but speaking from experience, your better off buying a complete new unit. I've seen many people replace cooling unit to save a few hundred dollars, then end up replacing circuit board, and various other item one after the other down the road. New fridge comes with year or 2 warranty as well.

Dometic refrig not cooling but found yellow oil at service panel


if you find an oily substance its most likely freon. this looks pretty new so i would say you have a bad soldered joint on a copper to steel line. theses usually ar fot the high side. where the condensor coil or loop runs either to underref or up in the ref walls

Dometic Voluntarily Expands Refrigerator Recall

Dometic recently expanded its recall on a population of two-door refrigerators. The original recall included some two-door refrigerators manufactured between April 1997 and May 2003. The new recall focuses on models manufactured between June 2003 and September 2006.

To see if your unit is on the recall list & what to do, try the link below.
If your unit is on the list, DO NOT run your refrigerator on propane until the kit is installed

Our rv has a dometic rm2600 fridge that smells of ammonia inside and has a little bit of yellow residue in behind service panel. is the fridge wrecked or is it worth repairing. the rv is 27 years old.


Hi,
Sorry to give you the bad news. The ammonia smell is the the refrigerant
leaking out. Dometic uses ammonia that is heated and then condensed to cool. It will all leak out and quit cooling.
The fridge is wrecked. There are shops that rebuild the units. Beings as ammonia is corrosive one must assume there may be other leaks ready to appear. There are RV salvage yards that sell good used units.
Again Sorry for your loss.

Dometic rm4223 has leaked coolant. The refrigerator was running but not cooling as we smelled ammonia


You need a new cooling unit. That ammonia smell means that your heating unit is shot, needs to be replaced, and there are a coupla ways to go here.

1) Order up a rebuilt (or new) online, and replace it yourself. (Handyman skill level:fair.) $500.

2) Go to an RV repair shop and have that done $700.00 - $100.00

3) Buy a new fridge. $1000.00 ++
