We have a 2510 Dometic Refrigerator that won't chill in either gas or 110. Could it be the thermastat?

Hello,

yes, its possible, but don't over look other areas that could be the cause of the problem.

You can follow the troubleshooting steps below as you might get to the root of the problem:

  1. Check that the temperature control knob isn't in the "off" position.
  2. Move the temperature control knob to a colder temperature setting.
  3. Check that the fridge isn't unplugged or that the fuse or circuit breaker isn't blown. Reset the circuit breaker or replace the fuse as needed.
  4. Make sure the red defrost button hasn't been inadvertently pushed. If the button is pressed the fridge will run through its defrost cycle. You can't turn the cycle off until it has completed. Part of the defrosting function includes warmer temperatures
  5. Determine if the ambient temperature has become hotter. For example, is the weather warmer than when you initially set the fridge temperature, or is the air conditioning set higher? If so, set the temperature control one step colder.
  6. Determine whether you are opening the fridge door more often than usual, or if a food package is keeping the door open. Remove any obstructions.
  7. Make sure the door seal isn't dirty and preventing the tight contact required. Wipe the seal on both the door and the body using a soft cloth and warm water.
  8. Make sure the fridge hasn't been built-in or placed in a too tightly confined space. If it is, the hot wall condenser won't work properly. Test this by pulling the fridge out into the room to see if the temperature stabilizes.
Good luck.

Hi, if that be case check the thermostat as you have suggested and you can also check the relay starter which is situated near the compressor.

Take care

Not unless you unplug the thermistor from the circuit board and let it run for 24 hours. If it does not cool after that then your cooling unit is bad.

There is a control board and a step down transformer that may be at fault.
These should be located in the lower rear of the unit.

What you would need to do is get an inverter to power the icebox. Turn the 12 volts into 110 to power up the compressor. THE INVERTER STORE has aone for $199

www;
Unplug the fridge. Remove the cover from the circuit board, unplug the 2 wires going to the heat element and do an Ohms reading should be 35-45 Ohms. If the Ohms is good then you need a circuit board as long as you have checked the 110 volt fuse on the circuit board.
