Question about Dometic RGE400 Top Freezer Refrigerator

Silhouette by Dometic RV fridge

I own a 1994 24 Foot Scotty, newly acquired (not new). In testing out the fridge at home, I noticed that the freezer works but not the refrigerator (sorry spelling) part. I read in the manual that the most common problem for the fridge not to work properly would be because of a blow fuse. Now I haven't gotten new ones yet, but could anyone explain why the freezer would work but not the other part?

    Our Dometic RM 2401 works perfect with Electric(!AC) but when we try to run off of gas with the freezer compartment level and the flue clean as a whistle, The freezer works great but we also get a minimum temp in the lower compartment of 50-55 Deg F. What's up with this?

Tuna, it sounds like your thermistor is bad. Once the fridge reaches 40 degrees, the thermistor is supposed to tell the board to stop cooling and maintain. You can test it with an Ohmmeter.

Could possibly be a problem with leveling. These unit need to be level to function properly. Never off level side to side or toward the front. Can be a degree or two off level toward the back. Cool down time from start-up is about 12 hours.

Freezer works fine on propane but not the fridge


You may wish to check the flue clear anything that you find. Old birds next etc. Also make sure the flame and orifice are clean free from debris or rust. Propane should burn blue not orange. Incorrect gas setting if the flame is orange. Some yellow at the tip is ok. Proper adjustments are critical. Have you tried the unit on AC?
Other tips I have read indicate possible freezing in the back.
Defrost freezer completely as some here mentioned and restart see if this helps. Here is a good RV forum I saw good tips worth investigating.

If your not comfortable cleaning the jets and adjusting the flame have a professional do this. Safety comes first!
Good luck!

I have a dometic rv fridge, the freezer works not the fridge


you have to send the brand name and model number so i can help you.all that happens is the evapcoil in the freezer gets cold,the evap fan motor blows cold air from the freezer into the fridge side,depending on your model you could have a bad damper,this is a door that is in the fridge section,it opens and closes letting the air come in,try this,open the freezer door,if you don't hear the fan blowing you could have a bad fan motor,also touch your hand on the back inside wall of the freezer,if you have frost or like ice on the back wall you have a defrost problem,ice is biulding up on the coil and the fan can't blow the air over to the other side..if you need more help,do these tests and send the model number off of the machine and brand name,side by side or freezer on bottom,open the fridge door,look up on right hand side wall near ceiling or on ceiling,freezer on top look on left side in fridge section.

AC,DC, gas RV fridge Dometic


You more than likely need to replace the control cable between the upper and lower board. It comes as a kit with the upper board. You can also do a bypass test by unplugging your thermoster from the circuit board. The thermoster is the temperature control for the refrigerator nothing to do with the freezer.
