RV refrigerator repair

Dometic RM3601 AES RV Refrigerator:
The refrigerator lights on gas but as soon as the ignitor quits sparking the burner goes out. (approx 2-3 minutes). The gas failure light comes on. It works normally on 120 VAC. The thermocouple was tested good. The gas flame is nice blue in color and normal height. Thank you for any help you can give. Ken

SOURCE: Gas side of fridge works perfect all day, stops during night!

Sounds like you have some blockage issues and the venturi tube and pilot may need a more complete cleaning. It's possible that the supply pipes have rusted enough on the inside that you're getting small rust particles in the gas and thus into the fridge. You may have to replace the supply lines to resolve this, but...

...rather than 2nd guess what's happening, here's the a link to the diagnostic service manual for your model. You may have to enter in a code to access it once on the website, but this manual will help you troubleshoot your fridge like a pro.

Hope this helps and you solve the problem. Best regards!

Dometic Voluntarily Expands Refrigerator Recall

Dometic recently expanded its recall on a population of two-door refrigerators. The original recall included some two-door refrigerators manufactured between April 1997 and May 2003. The new recall focuses on models manufactured between June 2003 and September 2006.

To see if your unit is on the recall list & what to do, try the link below.
If your unit is on the list, DO NOT run your refrigerator on propane until the kit is installed

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
