Question about Dometic RM2193 Compact Refrigerator With Ice Box

2 Answers

I have a Dometic 2193 3 way fridge. It works

I have a Dometic 2193 3 way fridge. It works great on AC power. It does not work on propane as well. The flame was not mostly blue on high so I cleaned the burner and burner jet as recommended in the owner's manual. The flame is now a lovely shade of blue :) I put the fridge on AC and cooled it to 40F. I switched it to propane and after 4 hours it was at 50F. The flue baffle is hot to the touch. The outside temp is 85-90 and quite humid so if I had turned the fridge off entirely after the same amount of time the fridge would have been much warmer inside. It seems like the propane is working but not enough. Any help would be appreciated.

The flue baffle was the solution that worked for me as well. Below is a response I posted to a similar post.


I had a similar problem. The flue would get hot and the cooling tubes would get "warm". The refrig would get a LITTLE cool but nothing to be of any help.

I solved it turns out there is a "flue baffle" (twisty little metal thing) that is supposed to hang in the inside of the baffle. It hangs from a screw found on top of the baffle and it is supposed to hang down.

The screw that held mine was corroded and flue baffle had fallen into the baffle and landed on top of the burner.

I ended up fishing the flue baffle out of the top of the baffle with a coat hanger, then rehanging it using a new screw. That solved my problem.

Not sure if this will work for you or not but good luck.

By the way, you can find an owner's manual with a diagram showing the flue, the flue baffle, and the piece of metal holding it here:

Look on p.9, figure 9. Item C is the flue baffle and the wire holding it. Item B is the screw that was corroded on mine, and ended up dropping the baffle down to the bottom of the flue.

Below is a link to some generic directions on solving fridge-related problems. I found it to be VERY useful.

Go up on top of your coach, remove the refrigerator vent. That will give you access to the chimney on the fridge. Remove the flue cap, and there will be a little metal hook hanging on the side. Pull this up, and there will be a spiral baffle attached. Look for debris on the baffle, clean if necessary. Also, the bottom edge should be straight, not chewed up.

Also check your orifice in the burner tube as well. If the orifice is clogged, it may not allow enough LP gas to flow, giving a low flame.

    I would probably test the thermocoupler or change it this will affect the cooling of your refridgerator a $ 20 fix may take 20 mins. to change.

I have a dometic rm 2652 in a 2003 travel trl. The propane side works. The elect side quit working. There is power to plug. The lights for auto and fridge inter. also work. The two fuses are good.

Unplug hydro plug to fridge. Remove cover on circuit board. Follow wires from heating element, to terminals on circuit board. ( probably J7 and J8 ) . With an AC volt meter or multimeter set to AC voltage, turn fridge on hydro, and leave door open on fridge so that it calls for cooling. To be sure it's calling for cool, try gas first, when it's starts, you know it's calling for cool, then switch to AC operation. Now test for voltage at the 2 terminals that the heating element were/are attached to. If you get 100-120 VAC, then replace the heating element. If not get back to me and I'll walk you through a couple more tests.

Not working on propane

Shut it off, (propane) and used compressed air to try and blow up that stack and clean out any rust that may be in there, as well as check for baffle hooked at top of stack, and hangs down inside the tube.

The fridge will not turn on. Should I be turning on the 100 switch, even if the camper is plugged in, and the lights are working?

Do you mean the 110VAC switch? Unless you are running the fridge on propane, it will need something to power it and if the camper is attached to power the fridge can be run on AC.
