If the compressor works and still there is no coolingg then check if the gas pressure is down.
If there is gas within the system then it ispossible that the compressor is faulty.
The last you can do to confirm is to put the fidge off for 6 hours and put it on. If the cooling returns then you must check the thermostat.
set it low and test again. If there is no cooling the compressor is faulty.

Interior wall panel battery lights does not lightup when 120 power is not pluged


The lights run off of 12V DC and use your RV's batteries to run when not plugged in. When plugged in it uses the AC and converts it to DC and runs the lights.

Please check your battery disconnect switch. It's most likely off. In my Winne there is a battery disconnect switch which disconnects the two batteries near the door. Lights wont work when unplugged and the switch is off. Lights works when plugged in or unplugged and switched on.

Advent 4211-C won't power up on AC or battery. The only sign of life is the battery charging light which displays green continuously when the computer is plugged in to the mains... apart from...


You may have already tried this... Please remove the battery to see if the machine responds to pluged in power by itself. Press the power button for about 30 seconds befor pluging in the power... this is usually the way to reset the laptop. A defective battery can keep the machine from working.
If there is no response, the motherboard may have been damaged or a solder gotten loose, either way, it would need to be taken apart to verify and the solution could be expensive.

Our Dometic RM2652 RV frig has 2 yellow lights on which are indicated to be alert lights. The frig/freezer seem to be working fine.......????? Is something about to go out on it?


The 2 yellow lites... if you would... Is there and indication by description of what those 2 lights are?

Here are the modes:

OPERATING MODES

AUTO MODE

Press the AUTO/MANUAL mode selector button (2) to the DOWN position. The AUTO mode indicator lamp (A) will illuminate.

When operating in the AUTO mode, the AUTO mode indicator lamp (A) will illuminate. The control system will automatically select between AC and GAS operation with AC having priority over GAS. If the control system is operating on AC energy and it then becomes unavailable, the system will automatically switch to

GAS. As soon as AC becomes available again the control will switch back to AC operation.

If 120 volts AC is not available, the control system will automatically switch to GAS operation. Within 45 seconds the burner should be ignited and operating normally. If unsuccessful, the CHECK indicator lamp (B) will illuminate.

To restart an ignition attempt with the CHECK lamp illuminated or to clear (turn off) the CHECK lamp, press the main power ON/OFF button to the OFF and then to the ON position. The control system will attempt a new 45 second ignition sequence.

On the initial refrigerator start-up on gas (120 volts AC is not available), it may take longer than 45 seconds to allow air to be purged from the gas line. If the refrigerator has not been used for a long time or the LP tanks have just been refilled, air may be trapped in the supply lines. To purge the air from the lines may require resetting the main power ON/OFF button (1) three of four times. If repeated attempts fail to start the LP gas operation, check to make sure that the LP gas supply tanks are not empty and all manual shutoff valves in the lines are open.

NOTE: DO NOT continue to reset GAS operation if the CHECK indicator lamp continues to be illuminated after 3 or 4 tries.

If 120 volts AC becomes available while the CHECK indicator lamp is on, the control system will switch to 120 volt AC operation, The CHECK lamp will not turn off until the main power ON/OFF button is pressed to the OFF then ON position.

In AUTO mode operation, the temperature is controlled by a single temperature setting.

MANUAL MODE

When operating in the MANUAL mode, the AUTO mode indicator lamp (A) will be off, and the refrigerator will run continuously on the energy source selected by the control system.

NOTE: The food in the lower compartment may be frozen if the refrigerator is left on "MANUAL" mode.

STANDBY MODE . .

This control system contains a feature that will continue to operate the cooling system in the event of a failure of a major operating component. If the control cannot read the temperature sensor and operate at the preset temperature, then the control will run the cooling unit like the MANUAL mode.The refrigerator will continue to operate in this mode indefinitely or until a new sensor is installed and the
system is reset.

I posted the above information from the contents of the service manual. I can help you but... at the moment for sure I have come to the conclusion that ONE of the lights your seeing is the CHECK light. The mystery is... what is the 2nd light your seeing? Manual of Stand-by?

I am pretty sure we can sort this out but... we need to really communicate clearly and well. In our posts here.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

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.

Heat- Is parking a car in high sun temperatures


heat is not fun during any time, is it harmful, yes and no. it can cause your Ac to work harder to cool the vehicle down in addition to eventually fading your interior. a suggestion to the heat would be to have light or white paint for the exterior (probably to late for you on this) and some type of window tint to reduce the heat on the interior. my vehicle hits about 110-120 degrees interior temp during the summer month's. 4 hours a day is not to bad for the sun exposure. I hope this helps!
