    Hi Joe, thanks for the e-mail regarding the caravan fridge RM 2350, have spoken to the fridge mechanic and he advised me that it could be the refrigerant that needs looking at but we need
    a specialist to look at it. He tried two new elements but it did not cool down enough.
    Thanks for your help Robin Booker

Hi.

If a technician was on the fridge, and the heating group is OK, then it is possible that the problem is the refrigerant.

First ensure that the heating is coming on. If there is no heating turning on, then the problem is not the refrigerant.

Also ensure that fridge is at level, or cooling will be poor.

Here a service manual. Print it out and have a look.

Regards.

Ginko.

Hello booker...Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils or a condenser that is clogged with dust, lint, and dirt.

Cleaning the condenser may in itself solve the problem. Self-defrosting refrigerators all have a set of coils and a cooling fan, usually under the refrigerator, that need to be cleaned regularly. If these coils get coated with dust, dirt or lint, the refrigerator may not cool properly. The coils may appear to be a thin, black, wide radiator-like device behind the lower kick-panel. To clean them, disconnect the refrigerator from the power source, use a refrigerator condenser brush and your vacuum cleaner to clean the coils of any lint, pet hair, etc. You may not be able to get to all of the condenser from the front, it may be necessary to clean the remainder of the condenser from the rear of the refrigerator.

I am looking for a manual for a dometic caravan fridge. model no RM 2350 Serial no 34100468. so we know how to use it.


That should be easy to find here=> http://www.gasrefrigeration.net/dometic_manuals.htmsea_breeze_11.gif
They have most of the User Manuals and answers to many questions you may have. Now when you are outside the USA the Name Brand's appear to change just a little but alway reflect back to Dometic and Norcold. If you are needing the Technical Data for a Model RM2350 the Service Manuals/Technical Data will fall under the RM2300 to the RM2800 series. Anyway hope that will get you going for now, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Dometic RM2612..Replaced Thermister, was cooling excellantly, now freezer works well but no cold in bottom of frigg? What may cause this?


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Freezer working, fridge isn't.


It is possible that your cooling unit is failing due to a blockage. The solution used to cool starts at the top of the fridge and works its way to the bottom. If there is a blockage in the cooling unit it could produce the symptom you have explained.

My dometic fridge doesn't cool some times but the freezer works


I don't know what type of fridge you have side by side or top mount or bottom mount but what every it is sounds like the air ducts are blocked with ice or the air damper is not working.

Dometic Americana Freezer/Fridge not cooling


The recall has nothing to do with your fridge not working. Your cooling unit has gone bad. And yes you can get a new fridge for a few hundred more than a new cooling unit. And sooner or later PPL motorhomes will run out of their cheap stock. The fridges they have are out of production. I know I am a Dometic dealer.

Dometic RM2350 Fridge not cold enough


I am going to first sugest to do a direct test on the cooling unit. You will first need to locate the 110Volt heating element on the rear of the refrigerator. It is located in the tin stack on the right hand side. After locating these two wires, you must plug them in to a 110 Volt source. You can do so by cutting an old extension cord and splicing the wires to to the heating element wires, then plug the extension cord in. This will by pass the thermostat and run your cooling system wide open. If your refrigerator works in a direct test then the problem is your thermostat. If you need any more info, please feel free to contact my company Arctic Cold Refrigeration @ 1888-782-6665 or by email matt@arcticold.com
