SOURCE: my rv fridge will build up ice and freeze food too cold

The thermister for the temp control is a likely culprit. Eric

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.

SOURCE: I have a Dometic RV fridge that wont get cold. it

It sounds like your cooling unit is going out. Here's a couple of things to check. Do you smell any ammonia when you open either one of the doors? When you look at the rear of the fridge, do you see anything that looks like rusty water that has run down any of the metal tubes and dried up? If the answer to either one of these is "yes", then youll need to start looking for a new fridge or replace the cooling unit on the one that you have.

SOURCE: my dometic fridge will not turn on

Check to see if you have a switch for storage, on, off etc. usually between doors, or near top right corner of fridge compartment. It may be in wrong position.

SOURCE: My Dometic rv Refrigerator does not cool the lower

If the freezers ok, then airflow is the issue, as the reefer gets its air from the freezer, set the dial that does not operate the compressor to the middle setting, pegging it to cold, makes the freezer colder by starving the reefer!, very common call requiring no repair , just a setting change!! never peg it!!

My 1987 dometic rm2600 works on electricity but not on gas. No light shows.


It is more then likely just a dirty orifice. The orifice is located just before the burner. It is a brass fitting that screws into the burner. It can be cleaned by removing it and soaking it in rubbing alcohol for a half hour then blowing it out. Do not poke anything through it! One cleaned try the fridge again, if this does not cure the problem then it is more then likely your thermostat that has failed. These thermostats are still available. They are a dometic dual stat and can more then likely be found on Ebay for around $100. For any other RV fridge issues please contact ArctiCold Refrigeration We keep it cold with locations accross North America we can help you with your RV fridge problems. ">

2 year old RM 2620 fridge, stopped working. I have power to the plug where it plugs in, but there's no lights or cooling now. Fuses are fine.


On the back side of the unit there will be a small thermostat switch mounted on the heat column. It will be round with two wires attached to it. In the center is a reset button. If this button does not restore power then the next step is to replace the wire coming from 12v supply to the thremostat switch. The wire will be red and will have a black sleeve on it. Under the sleeve is a safety diode (to prevent overheating and fire), it will be held in place with three bendable metal fingers. If the diode is bad it will not allow 12v power to pass through to the circuit board. Even though the refrigerator is running on 110v power the circuit board still requires 12v power to operate. The diode is a part of a FREE recall kit offered by Dometic so your local RV repair center should be able to help you out.

I have a mid 70's Dometic RM 211 refrigerator in my camper. The screen on the propane burner has been damaged and needs to be replaced. Parts no longer exist from Dometic. What size wire mesh do you...


Hi Brian,

You don't want to use a screen that is made to fit. The original part was designed for a specific flame. That being said, colaws rv salvage may have a replacement burner in stock, and you can also try calling up a company that rebuilds cooling units for rv fridges.

Tuna, it sounds like your thermistor is bad. Once the fridge reaches 40 degrees, the thermistor is supposed to tell the board to stop cooling and maintain. You can test it with an Ohmmeter.
