What you are hearing is that the compressor is trying to start but can't..... And you could be right the compressor could be bad and the start capacitor could also be bad... I would try a new start capacitor or have the old one checked to make sure it is only the capacitor before I would condemn the compressor..... If you can get your hands on a 3 in 1 start capacitor you can try and see if the compressor will start also put an amp probe clamp meter to check if it drawing close to LRA on the name plate of the compressor..if it is and you have a good start capacitor then the Compressor rotor is locked up and you will need to replace the compressor or get a new or different refrigerator....

As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician or HVAC tech to advise what work is needed.
Before you do any work yourself,
on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,
always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB
SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY
REFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS.

My dometic rm 2612 stops working at least once a day the check light goes on.


Your 'frige has either; a 12 volt power supply or, a gas flame to circulate the refrigerant gas to cause absorption refrigeration to work; check or, replace your power supply as it 1. holds open the gas valve relay, 2. heats the gas with a heating element.

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.
