Your refrigerant may have completely separated in the system. Shut of the gas, disconnect the electrical and remove refrigerator from the coach or if you have sufficient room inside set it on a clean area. This operation is what is called burping the system.
1. From the base roll it onto the door and wait five minutes.
2. roll it onto the top and wait five minutes.
3. Roll it on the back and wait five minutes.
4. Return it to the base and wait five minutes.

Reinstall it or test it on electrical. It should show signs of cooling in about 30 minutes in the freezer compartment if the system is not plugged in the boiler.

SOURCE: I have a Dometic RV fridge that wont get cold. it

It sounds like your cooling unit is going out. Here's a couple of things to check. Do you smell any ammonia when you open either one of the doors? When you look at the rear of the fridge, do you see anything that looks like rusty water that has run down any of the metal tubes and dried up? If the answer to either one of these is "yes", then youll need to start looking for a new fridge or replace the cooling unit on the one that you have.

SOURCE: Dometic rv fridge runs fine on elec, lights on gas

It is key that all control switches are in the correct position, depending on what power source you are using, gas, electric, etc. If the switches are not in the proper setting, the unit will not operate.

Here's the manual for your fridge that should be printed out for your use and reference (and reading enjoyment). It has all the info needed to operate and troubleshoot it.

Typically, when using any gas appliance with a pilot light, the sensor has to first be hot enough to trigger it to allow the safety gas shutoff to open and allow the gas to flow to the pilot/burner. Follow the instructions and you should be all set.

Will not run electric but runs on 12volt and gas


The verry first thing is to ensure that the rear coils of the cooling system are not warm. These coils can be accessed through the rear vent of refrigerator. If these coils are warm and the fridge is level then you more then likely require a cooling system. (Link Below)
If the coils are not warm, then you must ensure you have 110V on the plug that the refrigerator plugs into. It is located at the rear of the fridge and can be accessed through the vent panel of RV. Iv you do have 110V at the plug, then you may want to then check the fuses located inside the electronic board on the fridge. It is also located on rear of the fridge and can be accessed through the vent. If both fusses in tact, then the problem is more then likely your heating element that is bad. The heating element is located in the duct work on the right hand side looking at the fridge from the rear. You mentioned that your fridge also works on 12V so you will have two heating elements. The one with the yellow wires is the the 12V heating element, you do not have to remove that one. You must remove the other in which it is either black or white wires. The wires simply disconnect from the electronic boad and the heating element will slide upward to be removed. It sometimes takes some twisting to get it loosened up.If you have any questions please feel free to contact ArctiCold Refrigeration We keep it cold

2 year old RM 2620 fridge, stopped working. I have power to the plug where it plugs in, but there's no lights or cooling now. Fuses are fine.


On the back side of the unit there will be a small thermostat switch mounted on the heat column. It will be round with two wires attached to it. In the center is a reset button. If this button does not restore power then the next step is to replace the wire coming from 12v supply to the thremostat switch. The wire will be red and will have a black sleeve on it. Under the sleeve is a safety diode (to prevent overheating and fire), it will be held in place with three bendable metal fingers. If the diode is bad it will not allow 12v power to pass through to the circuit board. Even though the refrigerator is running on 110v power the circuit board still requires 12v power to operate. The diode is a part of a FREE recall kit offered by Dometic so your local RV repair center should be able to help you out.

I Have a Dometic RM2652 it heats up in the back, but, neither the fridge or freeze will cool down.. I've checked the fuses, tried gas and electric.


First thing I would do is check this dometic site for recall information. Have model and serial number ready.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

The blue wire disconnected and the 30 amp fuse being pulled is typical of a DC circuit problem. What concerns me is the fact that someone had to put a 30 amp fuse in a 3 or 5 amp circuit. Maybe you meant to say 3.0 amp.

The unit uses a 5 amp fuse on J5 of the main board for AC power and a 3 amp fuse on J1 of the main board for DC power.

See page 17 of this manual:
http://www.gas-refrigerators.com/pdf/RM2852-manual.pdf

For part numbers of parts see Appendix A in this manual:
http://www.dometic.com/c415ec17-8004-4fef-9a97-c68e601bf593.fodoc

You will need to use this manual to troubleshoot:
http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/1252service.pdf
See step 3 page 2 to start... where is says Operation you have to perform the testing steps listed below Operation.

Operation

AC Volts

Fuse

Heating Element

Wiring
Lower Circuit Board

From the hip given the fuse was removed I would suspect the heating element but.. follow the sequence above.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

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.

Our Dometic RM2193 cools on gas but does not work on electric


It could be as simple as a blown fuse at the fridge. Also check to make sure you have turned on the electric switch that allows the fridge to run on AC. Note, you can only operate the fridge on EITHER gas OR electric, but not both sources at the same time, thus, you have to turn off the gas switch before you can run on electric.

When this unit is running on electricity, it has to have the thermostat set for it to run.

Here's a link to the Dometic manual for your model.

http://www.alcovr.com/DATA/MANUEL/DometicRefrigeratorModelsRM2191&RM2193.pdf

Just follow the steps for running on electric and you should be OK.
Hope this helps.
