Dometic rv fridge

My fridge is a ac/dc/gas fridge it has it to where it auto maticly go to gas and if there isnt any gas it will go to ac. my problem is after it has gone to ac after awhile it will go to check and turn off or quit cooling. i dont understand if it is on ac why is it going to check ? if you turn it on manually it goes straight to gas and you can only get ac current if you set it up on auto , and it will cool good for a while then goes to check and stops cooling. whats causing this?

Your possibly getting a DC voltage interuption Your convertor can be over heating causing a temporary drop. You can chech this by turning everthing dc supplied on and watch to see if the check light comes on then. Primary is electric and if no electric then it is suppose to look for gas.

This is an RV frig correct? It SHOULD work either/or. AC or DC. If your plugged into AC then often the frig will work with that alone. DC is for when you have no AC so you can power your appliances of the battery. Maybe you have a converter (AC to DC which most RV's do) that somehow is not getting the DC to the frig.

Fridge works on gas...but not on AC


Your heater should measure 44 ohms, give or take 10%.

95 Ohms is way off. The RM2310 uses a 92 ohm heating element, perhaps you installed / were sold the wrong heating element?

Hi!!

Right beside the circuit panel, there is a grill, remove the 4 screws to gain access to the transformer/battery charger. You'll see a double power outlet, one cord is from fridge, the other is from the transformer. UNPLUG Transformer cord and reset breaker.

It will take a couple of minutes for the fridge to change to AC if you have it in AUTO. If everything works fine, REPAIR OR REPLACE TRANSFORMER/BATTERY CHARGER.

Don't forget to rate this answer, Good Luck!!!

First thing to check is that the control switches are in the proper position, since some RV fridges require a particular placement for the fridge to operate on different power souces.

Check your owner's manual for troubleshooting steps for your specific fridge, beyond that, here's link to a site that provides a step-by-step troubleshooting guide complete with active links for each potential issue.

Here's a copy of the manual for your fridge model that you can download and print for free, just in case you don't have yours handy.

Just bought a tent trailer with a Dometic Fridge.


You need to make sure that you follow the manufacturer's recommendations for using the unit with each specific power source. It's important that you have the all switches in the proper position, based on what power source you're using.

Here's the manual for your model, save a copy and print it out and take some time to review the section #3 Operating Instructions on page 6.

You more than likely need to replace the control cable between the upper and lower board. It comes as a kit with the upper board. You can also do a bypass test by unplugging your thermoster from the circuit board. The thermoster is the temperature control for the refrigerator nothing to do with the freezer.
