Question about Dometic RM2852 Refrigerator
My rv fridge will not get cold at all---the heater is getting hot but no cooling in the fridge.The indicator is not showing any faults. I have tried it on Electric and Gas.
If the heater is geting hot and not cooling sounds like it is in the defrost mode just defrosting or stuck in defrost mode.If it is in defrost mode it should stop defrosting after a while and start cooling. They defrost every so many hours depending on how they are set.

If there is no cooling
at all on the fridge section but the freezer works then it is confirmed that
the compressor and gas pressure is OK. Now shut off the fridge and leave it
powered off while you clean and check the evaporator for frost. If frost is
seen it is a good indication as the compressor is working with sufficient gas
Now after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if ice forms in the freezer then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked. Frost formation without defrosting could block the air flow and so shut the air passage to the fridge. Also the blower fan must work and if this is not working then the fan can be faulty. Also a fault on the control unit is a suspect to non functioning of any one of these components.
If defrost timer works but frost keeps forming check while the compressor shuts if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test using a multi-meter on the defrost timer and the thermostat and make your observations so that we come to the solution.
