Question about Refrigerators

Dometic R V refigerator model RM2611. Will not cool on gas or electric. The unit that has the filler plug on the end(Looks like a thermos bottle on its side) gurgles when supposed to operate. Unit lights the gas when turned on to gas, and seems to try to operate when on gas. My service depot says that the cooling unit is no good and has to be replaced. What do you think. Hank

Dometic RM2611, Freezes fine, Refrig OK on AC, but warms up when on LP gas. Can I safely increase the orifice size from #53 to #58? Thinking that will increase the flame and produce more heat.


Check the gas regulator and the lines for particles of dirt. You have modified the refrigerator it is going to take some work to find what is wrong. Don't modify the orifice from what it calls for.

Changing the cooling unit is something that can be done by the end user such as yourself.

Your cooling unit is done, and will need replacement. I will urge you to take down model and serial number and go to their site, or call Dometic , ( www.dometicusa.com) 1-800-544-4881, and inquire whether your unit falls into the recall on some of those models. You may end up with a new cooling unit, free of charge.

hi, here is a link to a service manual for that unit. there is a "Common problems page" if this is a new unit for you then you need to be aware that these units must be level to work (get cold) correctly.

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.

Dometic rm2611 quit on the road today all lights


If the fridge is complete dead (no lights no fan, no compresor,etc.) looks like there's not power in the unit.Check if theres power in the oulet if you know how , if you don't put the fridge in an oulet that you know is power , if still doing nothing probably the cord is broken or burned and the power doesn't go throught it from the oulet to the fridge.
