If you look in the outside compartment do you see a yellowish powder? If you do, or if you smell amonia probably the cooling unit has leaked the coolant. It does not help to add coolant, it will just leak out again quickly. You will need a new fridge or to have the cooling unit replaced. If that is the problem, Dometic has a recall on some models for leaks and will pay for a new cooling unit.

Dometic RM 4224 won't cool on gas or electric. The stack in the back gets super hot, the fridge is not cool at all.


First ensure that the fridge is level. If the fridge is level and still not cooling while there is heat on the rear of the fridge, then you will require a replacement cooling unit. Give Arcticold a call 1-888-782-6665 Web site: ArctiCold Refrigeration We keep it cold

My Dometic RM2652 in my camper isn't getting cool enough when it's set on electricity. It feels cool, but not cold. The ice in my freezer turned to water, but it was still cold. The refrigerator section is...


Sounds like maybe your element for Heating when on hydro may be faulty. A voltage check at spades on board connected to element will confirm. If power to element but no heat felt at element should confirm it's faulty. Remember, if stack is already hot from propane, element will also feel hot, so it has to be out or fridge cooled down at back first.(off)

3.5cu camper dometic refrigerator. how long does it take to cool and should i hear it turn on? is it normal for the heating elements on the back (leu) to get hot?


If the element is hot thats what its supposed to do...if the whole back side is hot its a problem,as far as how long you should feel some cold in at least one corner of the freezer in an hour or less...On a hot day mine takes about 3 hours to get in the forties in the friodge and zero in the freezer.

The fridge gurgles and won't cool in a/c or gas.


If the fridge is "gurgling" then there is one of two problems. Either you have a bad thermistor, which is not allowing the fridge to cool down properly, or your cooling unit is becoming plugged. If you run the unit on gas and get no check light, remove the outer cover and place your hand on the cooling unit, if it is just too hot to keep your hand on, then move your hand up the back. Feel the unit to see if there is a spot where the cooling unit begins to cool off. If so, that is where your blockage is.

There is also the possibility of air bubbles in the system. There is a procedure known as "burping" the unit but it is quite extensive and time consuming.
1. Remove the fridge from the unit, paying attention to electrical connectors and being sure to shut off the gas line and remove it from the fridge.
2. Pull the fridge onto the floor in the unit (providing there is room) and lay it on it's right side. Let it set for 8 hours and then turn it on its top for 8 hours and the its left side for 8 finally standing it back up.
This procedure will burp the air bubbles out of the unit and allow it to work correctly.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

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.
