My refrigerator side is not cooling well. I see ice behind the fan unit when I take out the veggie drawers at bottom. Also fan on fridge side is making lots of noise. Noise stops when I open the door and...

.When you open the door freezer door will get stopped and so, no sound. It will work only when door is closed. Fan sound comes due to malfunction of defrost. If defrost does in right time it won't happens. Unplug and let fridge get defrost all icing. After 3 to 4 hrs,start run again, and set temp @ 5degree freezer. It will start cooling fridge compartment also. But, this is a temerory solution. To solve permanently, find out why defrost not functioned properly?
Follow this steps.
Check defrost timer working which is back of the refrigerator down corner. By with small tip screw driver in some models located in the ceiling of the fresh foodsection or behind the cold control cover. In the defrost timer,slowly turn the screw like wheel in the middle of the defrost timer withstraight screwdriver until the fridge shuts off. Now it's in defrost. If thedefrost heater(s) starts, replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. Ifthe heater(s) does not start, unplug wire cord to check ohm test for continuityof heater. If continuity is there, plug cord wire which gives power 120volts(check specification) to heater. If heater no starts, bypass defrost thermostatby join the 2 wires in the defrost thermostat. If the heater now comes on,replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater itself is bad,replace it. Thanks and hope helpful.

Water leak in fridge.

The most common cause is ice built up and plugged thedrain hole as non Auto defrost in time. Unplug the power de-ice. Locate the drain hole. Insert soft wire or cordto clear drain Open back of fridge. Locate drain tube and pan. And checkinserted wire or cord is coming out. Gently shake wires and pull out. That'sall. Now Drain tube is cleared. Once you defrost manually itself your problem would have solved automatically. Thanks, helpful?

I have a dometic rm 689 in my 1970's kustom koach trailer and i'm trying to understand usage. it has a 3 way switch on back of it that i don't know what it's for. can you tell me

Three way fridge:
1: Runs on 12 volts from the trailer batteries. Hard on power and uses batteries frightfully fast.
2: Runs on propane. This is best for places where there is no 120volt power lines. This still needs 12 volts to CONTROL the fridge so have a battery on board.
3: Runs on 120 volts. Great if you can plug in the trailer.

Icemaker is not making ice

Please keep in mind that I am attempting to diagnose this problem without being there and with limited information.
Make sure you water supply to the back of the fridge is on, that someone didn't turn if off for you by mistake. Ok, now. There could be a few different things causing this. First make sure the wire arm shutoff is in the down position. If so, check the inside temp of your freezer, make sure it is zero degrees or below. Now if these all check out good. If I had to guess, I would say that your water valve is bad. I suggest that you test it if you are able to.
I'll try to walk you through how to do it.
You will need what I call a cheater cord. This is a cord that I can plug into the wall on one end and the other end has alligator clips. Now pull fridge out from the wall. Find the water valve where the water supply connects to the back of your fridge. Unplug the wires from the valve and take both water lines off the fridge side of the valve. This will leave only the water line supplying the valve from the house water. Notice when you unplug the wires, there are two sides to the valve. Each having it's on two wire connections. Now with your cheater cord unplugged, clip the alligator clips to one side of the water valves. Then while watching the valve, quickly plug and un-plug the cord. Notice if water came out. Now do the other side of the water valve. Did the water come out. If it came out of only one side, you have a bad valve. If it came out of both sides, then you have a bad part inside your ice maker.
Please rate solution.

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.

Hope you find this helpful and will resolve your issue.

Replacing the electrical cord on a Roper Refrigerator

I may be able to assist...If you haven't done so already..UNPLUG The cord. Now, depending on where the wire was severed, will impact the degree of difficulty in reinstalling it.
I suggest that you position the fridge so that you can access the place where the cord actually goes into the fridge.
I assume that the cord passes thru a cable feedthru of some kind in the back so you may want to follow that into the fridge.
If the cord was severed outside the fridge you could simply join the 3 wires together as an inline connection ( making sure to keep the supply line, neutral and ground wires bonded to their corresponding ones ... meaning ground wire to ground wire, neutral to neutral and supply line to supply line... line may sometimes be referred to as the 'hot' feed.
If the cord was svered off internal to the fridge, try these steps..
You will probably need to remove an access panel on the back to see where the power cable is routed within the fridge. Once located, you will need to find where that cord was severed when it was pulled out. There should be 3 wires coming into the fridge from the power cord. I assume it came with a standard three prong plug that is compatible with a wall socket. You will have to identify which wire is which on the cord. It helps if you have a continuity meter or ohm meter for this. First, identify which of the 3 wires is bonded to the round terminal of the plug ( that would be your ground wire) That wire should be secured to the fridge frame with a bare screw of some sort. You may be able to trace the cord inside the fridge back to that point or you may be able to reattach the severed wire together using wire nuts to keep the wires joined together and electrically insulated from surrounding surfaces. Remember that it is critical to maintain the same point to point wire configuration as it came with. As a general rule of thumb, a bare copper wire or green insulated wire is typically the ground wire. Depending on the cord type, black insulated wire is normally the supply or HOT feed, and white is typically the neutral line. You may have different color insulation on your wires ( especially if it is a molded cable assembly ) so make sure you verify which wire comes from which terminal on the plug. ( round terminal on plug is ground, the longer of the two ( if it is a polarized plug would be your neutral and the shorter terminal would be the supply line. If unsure, get professional assistance. Hope this helps...
