These refrigerators do not use a compressor. They use a heat source, flame or electric element, to heat the ammonia/hydrogen mixture until it vaporizes. When it cools and condenses it produces a cooling effect and absorbs the heat from inside the refrigerator. If the elements/flame are working and all of the lights are working you will need to look at the back side of the refrigerator for a yellow ash like residue. If you see this then your cooling unit has ruptured and is bad. If you do not see it but still have no cooling effect then the unit is probably clogged and will need to be replaced.

If nothing happens at all, very possible the thermostat is faulty.Typically the light in the fridge stays on but the compressor is off.

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.

2005 dometric rm 2852 wont cool


I suggest the main control board is faulty because of the spike. The voltage would have damaged some of the control circuit - even though the fuses did not blow. Sounds like a memory fault on a control chip.

2002 RM 2852, the refrigerator (lower section) will not work its warm inside, but the freezer (upper section) works fine, it will freeze water bottle to hard ice. All fuses are good. Please help!!


cooling unit is bad my friend there is a temporary fix but in my opinion not worth your time take the unit out and flip the refer upside down this sometimes dislodges the blockage in the cooling unit all a rv fridge is is amonia and salt if not used all the time the salt crystalizes in the orfice and blocks the unit a rebult cooling unit 550 about and labor 4 hours at your dealers rate a new fridge about 1500 installed
my shop 360 for labor 550 about for unit 910
I ALLWAYS RECOMEND REPLACING THE FRIDE COMPLETLTY
you get all new electronics and a new box
