Question about Refrigerators
The safety mechanism will still be working. The only case it won't be working is when the safety mechanism itself is causing the problem. In that case there will be no risk because flame will be forced to turn off.
The indicator on red is telling you that the fridge is not cooling. It does not affect the safety of your Dometic.
The safety mechanism in your Dometic works using a thermocouple and a safety valve. When either of this will fail the gas flame will turn off, and the fridge will stop cooling. The safety mechanism works even when it is broken, as it does not allow gas valve opening.
About poor cooling, there are a number of reason that may result in insufficient cooling with this kind of fridge.
Check if there is flame, if there is no flame, then testing will start from igniter, coil, flame sensor and safety valve.
Ensure that there is enough ventilation.Thermostat and cooling unit must be tested if flame operations are OK.
On LP gas, check filter. Check pressure regulator and gas from the lines.
