There are only two things that cause it not to cool with a flame that lights and it does not cool.

1. System blockage
2. Loss of Coolant.

Sadly the only way to solve the problem is to have some refrigeration prssure gages connected to the system and check internal pressures. If you had it overhauled 3 years ago the fittings for connecting the gages should already be installed.

Who knows the valve stem in one of the fittings could have leaked over time or... a pin hole in the system some where.

You were correct in you assumption that since you had not smelled ammonia that it should not be the coolant system.

Just so you know a coolant leak area will appear yellowish in color if your using a white flash light.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

2003 wildwood Le trailer how do we light the gas on the refridgerator??? Did not come with manual.


Your fridge should have a switch for propane/electric/automatic. This is usually located above the fridge door & just below the freezer door. When on propane the gas will feed directly to the fridge there us no need to light it! However the propane needs to feed from the large propane tank usually mounted on the tongue of the trailer to the fridge....this takes some time . We usually light our drove first then wait a few minutes & then turn on the fridge. Please know that it takes a few hours 10-12 fir the fridge to cool down to acceptable temps.
Now if u do all the above u may have a blockage (mud dauber) in the propane line - which u can usually access thru the fridge access panel on the outside of your trailer. Bees seem to be drawn to the Oder if propane. Make sure prolate tank is shut off! Take a small brush & clean the inside of the propane line & then start from the beginning.

When the switch is set to electric, you should notice the fridge getting colder in a few hours. Again 10-12 hrs before it us acceptable to place food in it.

When the switch is in the auto mode it will automatically switch from electric to propane when you lose electricity for any reason & back to electric is you run out of propane - or shut it off.

Oh one last thing you must have your battery on in order for the fridge to work!

Good luck!

CAN YOU MANUALLY LIGHT A DOMETIC RM2652 PROPANE FRIDGE IN A 2006 TRAILER


It will not light manually as the ignition probe is electronically controlled. If it doesn't stay lit normally then it will more then likely not stay lit when trying to light manually.

If the flame is putting out design BTU's and you've already turned it You may need to have a technician pull a vacuum on the fridge to make things right again. First things first though, ensure the propane flame is adding adequate BTU's.

Fridge does not get cold during propane gas function only. Upper Freezer section does. Whole unit does perform and freeze and cold function fine with electric and generator function. Why only during...


According to the manual the following is the most likely items to cause that failure. But since it is only in the frigerator section and not the freezer section it could be the lower circuit board.


LP Gas


Orifice


Flue Baffle


Flue Tube


Burner


Lower Circuit Board

3 way dometic RV fridge RM2612 won't work on propane or 12 V


Check any fuses/circuit breakers in harness from battery. That battery should supply 12 volts dc to fridge lugs/terminals at bottom of fridge on outside behind vent.
If battery is good and hooked up properly but no 12 volts to fridge, then you will have to trace back to battery for broken /bad wire. If you want to test quickly, just run 2 jumper wires from battery to those 2 lugs marked + and - Battery + to + (pos)at fridge, and - battery to -Neg at fridge. That should allow you to run it on propane or 12 volt. Remember, running it on 12 volts will kill that battery pretty quick, unless it's being charged. When you are plugged in, the converter supplies the 12 volts to your fridge, as well as should be charging your battery.

I bought at Dometic propane/ electric fridge for my cabin last year. It has not run properly since. The fridge will light and run for a while with a blue flame but sometimes in the idle mode it goes out....


I have to ask, what is idle mode? I've never seen one that runs on idle mode, in a RV in 15 years. Has anyone used a manometer and tested Inches of water column in propane supply to fridge, as well as other appliances?
Any I've seen run on propane, are either on, (flame present, or off, no flame present.) Flame goes out completely when not calling for cool.
