I had this same problem and here is the possible solution.

The older fridges used amonia and water for a refrigerant. If it sits for a time the two seperate. Remove your fridge and turn it upside down and back again... let it sit for a bit in both positions. Occasionally turn it on.. either with gas or electric if so equipped. The process of heating and mixing the amonia and water will sometimes do the trick. When you notice its starting to get cold let it run a while.

I suggest you to check the Vents. I had a similar issue where my 12v compressor car fridge freezer stopped working and I found that I had put the Fridge Cover the other way round which accidentally covered the vents

Dometic refrigerator RM 2652 is not working


The fridge needs a 12 volt DC source to operate properly, which should be connected at the back of the fridge, outside behind cover. Check all fuses in your fuse panel as well. The upper controls are powered by 12 volt DC system, and that's what tells the fridge what to do.. (battery or converter)

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.

Camper fridge dont cool


I also had the same Model Make. I removed my fridge and placed it upside down, occasionally shaking fridge within a 24 hr period. This seemed to re-mix the ammonia solution and the fridge is working.
This may work for you but look for yellow stains if you see any your fridge is leaking and would require repair.
