Question about Dometic RM2852 Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have an unused 4 year old dometic rc4000 portable refridgerator that was checked to be working when purchased but on trying to run on mains electric today does not appear to be working (no sound to indicate unit is working). Also tried to power up using 12 volt battery via car cigarette lighter and still no sign of unit working. Any ideas what could be the problem. Unit has been stored in an indoor cupboard for the last 4 years.

I have a dometic refridgerator Rm3762 or Rm3962 one year old in my rv. It stopped cooling and is plugged in to 110. I was having problems on lp and restarted it a couple of times.


If your unit is working ongas,check your electric heater element locaged in the large round tube onthe righ handside when looking from the outside. You can check current draw , should be about 2.5 to 2.75 a/c amps. If electriccheck okand the gas is working, check for ayellow residue around the base of the refrigerator on the outside. Also if you have an amonia odor, this will indicate your cooling unit has leaked out and will have to be replaced. It could also be blocked which would cause loss of cooling. Hope this helps

I have a dometic mod.2852 refridgerator/freezer that was working fine until a day ago when it stopped getting cold in both parts. It has power. the space between the freezer and refridgerator is very warm....


Check this link to dometic recalls first and enter your model number and serial number. There may be a recall on that fridge.

I have an rca L42WD22YX5 that just went to a blank screen yesterday. The screen keeps reading unusable signal. It is only 14 months old.


i had this happen last year, now my tv is messed up again. when we had the problem with the unusable signal, the tv repair shop told us it was the main motherboard that caused it. ended up paying $250.00 to have it fixed. Now, our tv is broke again, this morning turned it on, got the green light, then just started flashing red, hasnt worked any at all today, reset it and everything. My suggestion, if you can afford to buy a new tv, do it, because I called the repair shop again this morning about the new problem, they said after the 1 year warrentt from rca runs out all they do is tear up. My tv isnt even 4 years old, bought it at the end of 2007, now its tore up twice, going to purchase a samsung in the morning from brandsmart. Good Luck!

My dometic 2652 runs is not cooling on gas or electric .inside switching seems to function properly .heater is engaging. any suggestions?


Is there a yellow powder substance on the coils, heating tube or anywhere towards the bottom? If so, you have a leak. The best thing to do is:
1-Find a replacement unit online( ebay is a good place to start)
2-unhook electric line and gas line from the access panel
3-remove the refrigerator from the inside and place doors down(its heavy and you will probably need another person to help)
4-remove cooling unit from back of refridgerator
5-make sure you have enough thermo-mastik for the unit/coil contacts
6-replace cooling unit and hook up everything in reverse
7-turn on and let it cool for a few hours. My unit stays below 32F and works great.

Found the first one listed on ebay just now for $399.00 with a five (5) year warranty.
