Question about Dometic NDR 1292 Refrigerator

2 Answers

Dometic Model #NDR 1292 (s/n 31000077): I cannot get the unit to power up. I checked the 2 fuses in the power module and they appear to be OK. I plugged another electical device in the a/c outlet where the unit is plugged and it worked so I assume the a/c power is OK. All other d/c items appear to be working in the RV.

    It went out suddenly this past weekend shortly after disconnecting it from a 50 amp hookup while at a RV park in College Station, TX. Although it was working prior to that and has been working since we purchased the MH in 2005, it has never seemed to cool the way we think it should and we have had problems with the unit going off while operating under gas mode going down the road.

    Yes it was purchased new. There are not lights in the refrig or on the control panel on the front of the refrig. Can the power supply be replaced?

  • heroberts Sep 14, 2010

    That sounds like a good plan. I will try that. Thanks for your help.

  • heroberts Sep 14, 2010

    Will do, thanks

  • heroberts Sep 14, 2010

    Thanks, I will check the fuses again this evening when I get home.

I noticed you said you checked the fuses and they "looked" ok. Make sure you measure them with an ohmmeter, since I have seen them open up at the end of the filiment, and not be visibly open.
This web blog discusses this problem, and explains that it could be a bad control board:

I found a site that has the manual for this unit if you need one:

Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

How long has it been out of commission? Did anything happen that you suspect caused it, or you just went to use it one day and it wouldn't turn on? How old is the unit? Let me know and I can continue to help, but it may be needing some major service.

Thanks

    Hmm, I suspect you may be right about it never really working properly. Was the motor home purchased new? If so this may actually still be under warranty. Either way it is probably a blown power supply in the actual fridge, do any lights come on is any portion at all working whatsoever? Are you comfortable checking the voltage of the outlet where it is plugged in? I suppose it could be an issue with the actual power outlet, even though you say it has enough power to turn on another device, it may not be enough power for the fridge. But I am quite certain the issue lies in the fridge itself, it probably has had issues for some time and that most recent power disconnect in college park probably put it over the edge so to speak.

    If it were me, I would contact Dometic and see what they could do for me. If you want to to that (which is definitely worth a try) contact them at 800-321-9886

    It should be able to be replaced, yes, but it's difficult to say with certainty that the power supply itself is definitely the issue, there may be multiple items that went out at the same time as is many times the case with power problems in fridges. For example a fried power supply could take out the condenser with it... things of that nature. You will want someone to check it out for sure, but before you have a local appliance person come check it out I would call Dometic to see if the warranty is still in effect. Also, I believe this unit has a standard power plug, one that would work in a home for example... I suggest you run an extension cord from a house into the MH and try to power it up with that, just to eliminate the possibility of it being the outlet in the MH... does that make sense?

    Let me know :)

    No problem :), hope we can figure something out.

I am not sure what the wording is that they use. Otherwise I don't get credit on the site here for the help...

Since it does not work on either AC or gas - do you have DC to the unit? I have spent many hours troubleshooting a Dometic that turned out to be a corroded DC connection.

Cant find the fuse for the refrig. no power


Check connection for 12 volts, at back of fridge behind vent cover .(outside) Make sure 12 volts getting to the lugs where they join. If you have 12 volts to there, unplug fridge at receptacle usually on left side by back of fridge, just to be safe. Remove cover on circuit board and look for a blown (glass type fuse in there.)

Dometic RM2652 cooling cois cold to touch.


If the controls are working correctly, it is defiantly a problem with your cooling unit, either blockage or else leak. The best way to find out if it is the cooling unit is the problem is to disconnect the the heating element from the circuit board and add a 110 plugin so you can plug the heating element directly into a wall outlet. Make sure it gets hot (the heating element) and let it run for at least 6 hours. The frige dosen't need to be on during this time because all controls are being bypassed if the fride dosn't make cool it is a bad cooling unit. If it cools you probably have either a short, or the main circuit board is bad. (in 1993-1996 Dometic used a yellow epoxyed circuit board that almost allways went out at about 2-5 years of use)
