Question about Dometic RM2652 Refrigerator

Open Question

Dometic RM 2611 fridge works only intermittently on propane. It lights just fine but then abruptly goes out and the "check" light comes on. Burner is clean, flame is nice & blue, but something is causing the control valve to shut off, sometimes after a minute or two, sometimes after a day or two. Lately, the unit is also intermittently balking at switching over to AC power when plugged in - no lights come on, then after a delay of variable time, presto, it goes on. I'm wondering if there's a circuit board in it that's going bad? Any other likely causes?

SOURCE: Dometic rm 2612. Shuts down on gas.

Ron;
Check the burner assembly. 1 screw, remove the sheet metal cover and clean it. The burner collects rust. This is the likely. Other issues would be the gas pressure usually checked with a manometer. Should 11" of water column. If your furnace works good then the gas pressure is probably ok. Also could have a faulty ignitor which sends a miliamp signal back to the circuit board. Check the burner first, after that leave the cover off and turn the fridge on. Watch the ingnitor attempt to lite the burner. Be sure the spark is going to the burner and not shorting out on the sheet metal it is mounted in. If it is shorting to the frame the ignitor needs replacing.
Thanks for using Fixya

SOURCE: RM2652 runs a short while on gas then gas shuts off.

That was my same problem. I posted yesterday but I don't think I did it right! Anyway I had stated I thought it was the thermocouple and that's what it was. The millivolts while connected were down around 13.5 or so and that low of a voltage is not enough for the control board to verify there is a flame present. I replaced the thermocouple and it now reads 33.5 millivolts while the flame is on. So before you buy a new control board, make sure it's not something less expensive. I paid almost $40 for the replacement, but I am in a hurry to get this unit repaired. You can find them on-line for about half that.

If you can , run it on gas and see if it is OK- if so, you probly need an element.
If it wnot work on gas or electric you need a new sealed system

I found that they rewired the 12 volt supply, red wire, thru a heat safety switch on the burner unit and it was open instead of being closed and cut off the main 12 volt supply to the control board. I connected a jumper wire around the new switch and the frig works . either the new switch is bad or too close to the heating unit.

Rm 2611 will not run on gas when going down the road


Your voltage supply is being interrupted. The DC voltage needs to be at least 10.5 to work properly. If you are switching from shore to gen this can cause the interuption also. I presume the gas supply is staying on when you are traveling.
