Question about Dometic RM2452 Refrigerator

1 Answer

My dometic refrigerator seems to work properly at night when the weather is cooler (in the fifties) but during the day (in the eighties) it seems to quit cooling, even though the coils stay hot and I can hear a faint perking sound. I tried burping the system with no change. I put a thermometer with a remote probe in the freezer so I could moniter it without opening the door. The early morning temp was -23 but by late afternoon had risen to 61. Any ideas?

I think your frig is near the end of its useful life ... I am sorry to say this ... I think you should get a professional local opinion from your RV dealer.

Dometic Frige RM2611 stopped working when extreme cold weather set in


Yes they are designed to operate in a conditioned space. If it has a condenser fan motor you could put a cycle switch on it and that would extend it's operating range

Just bought a Dometic DM2862 fridge. Freezer on goes down to 12 deg. and lower unit down to 38 deg., but during day the temps are: freezer - 22 deg. and lower - 44 deg. Is this normal? Can I fix this?


While there is some fluctuations in temperature in Dometics from night and day, but it is usally the reverse of what you state. Warmer in the day time when the unit is opened more. I would check the temperature settings and if they are correct then check the thermostat.

My rv air conditioner works fine at night but only clicks on during the day for about three minute intervals. It seems like the compresor should work harder during the peak heat.


First thing I'd check is the hydro supply to your RV. Test voltage at both times and see if it is the same. You can even buy a plug in tester if necessary, that plugs in to receptacles. It may be a case of everyone around you has AC etc on during the day and your incoming voltage has been lowered, thus AC will not work correctly, and at night when some others are off, your voltage comes back up to where AC will function properly. Especially likely if you are near the end of a power cable run. If you have access to a good generator even temporarily, try plugging into that during the day and see if it doesn't make a difference.

We have a 3 way Dometic fridge in our caravan. Have lived in the van for last 12 months ( grey nomads) have had no probs until trip home this week from Yulara to Victoria. Pulled up at night and freezer...


Temperature does play a big part in the efficiency of the fridge. The condenser at the back of the fridge needs cool air flow to allow gas vapour to be converted back into a liquid.again.

Make sure the condenser fan underneath the unit is running when the compressor is. I don't know what else it could be unless the door gaskets are in bad shape.

Compressor freezes up at night and some during day.


You are being ripped off. The ambient (outdoor) temperature at night is low and therefore proper condensing does not take place causing the refrigerant to pool in the condenser and starving the evaporator. This causes a lower temperature in the evaporator resulting in "freeze up" which is often mistaken for a loss of refrigerant.
The proper thing to be done is to block off the condenser air causing the high side pressure to rise until the eqivillant of 110*F condensing temperature.
You can also install a low ambient kit which will cycle the compressor off when the temperatures fall

My 1995 Dometic 2611 runs OK all day but not at night


Yes more than likely the cooling unit is going bad. If your boiler tube is hot the cooling unit is no good. Your frig is 13 years old, it has reached its life span and beyond. A cooling unit or a new frig can be purchased from www.coachtech.info. Just send them an e-mail.

Friedrich air conditioning - inside unit ice build up


Hi, Reduced air flow, low on freon or being continuously run during cooler weather such as at night. Some people turn their thermostat on 60 thinking that it will help get it cooler faster. They freeze up at night and don't get a chance to thaw during the day. It needs set no lower than 75 or so. The evaporator may be dirty. Don't know a lot about your particular unit but if the outside unit has the compressor and refrigerant lines running to it, The large refrigerant line should sweat all the way to the compressor if its fully charged. Please rate me if I have helped. Good luck kstfas
