SOURCE: My Dometic NDR1062 only runs on gas, its set for auto and has 110

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.

My Dometic 2852 will not cool in gas mode. The igniter continues to click despite a small blue flame in the burner. I have take the gas valve out and cleaned it and removed the orifice and cleaned it


If the igniter continues to click, that means that the control board is not sensing the flame through the igniter. You need to clean the igniter tip to make sure that there is not a build up of soot or corrosion. The tip of the igniter should be approximately 1/8" from the flame tube. The only way to determine "sufficient" gas flow would be to perform a manometer test to ensure that you have 10" - 14" water column. I would start with cleaning and adjusting the igniter so that it will not continue to try to ignite. If that does not stop the igniter from striking then you will need to replace the igniter. If it continues after you install a new igniter then you are more than likely experiencing board failure.

My dometic rm 2612 stops working at least once a day the check light goes on.


Your 'frige has either; a 12 volt power supply or, a gas flame to circulate the refrigerant gas to cause absorption refrigeration to work; check or, replace your power supply as it 1. holds open the gas valve relay, 2. heats the gas with a heating element.

Some of the Dometics have what was called the 'Dinosaur Board' which is a circuit card which controls the unit.

Not sure if it applies to your exact model, but if there is a company who just makes replacement control boards for Dometic fridges, that is a big fat clue, in my book. Cheers.

Light stays on check when on ac on Dometic Fridge


Here's some info regarding the check issue you're experiencing:

Problem. Unit controls go to "check"
There is a common problem with, Dometic RM2807 or RM2811 and most later model Dometics with upper controls. The refrigerator's "check light" comes on or the refrigerator just shuts down seemingly for no reason. Another common problem occurs while on 120v. The refrigerator might switch to gas or just shut down even while you have a good 120v supply.

Answer. Dometic RV refrigerators with the push button upper control boards have a problem with the main power boards. The power board components are encased in yellow epoxy, reducing heat transfer. This tends to cause them to run too hot which in turn can often cause the power board to fail completely or cause problems such as listed above. We have found the only effective repair is to replace the power board. We do not use the Dometic replacement as they too can fail. The Dometic replacement also requires you to rewire the board and gas valve. The only board we recommend is the P-711. The P-711 not only will fix these problems but does not require the rewiring. It uses all the standard wiring. See Power Boards

Hope you find this helpful and best regards!

Dometic 2811 gas/AC refrigerator poor operation on gas mode.


Your gas valve is sticking. Could be a bad thermocouple.
Set it to come on, then with a screwdriver handle or something similar, tap,tap,tap gently on the gas valve to see if it lights.
Once it unsticks it should operate OK.
If it does not unstick, replace the gas valve.
