Disconnect the electric heating element from the board on the back. Replace fuses see if it will run on gas now. If it will your heating element needs to be replaced.

Dometic refrigerator troubleshooting rm 3662,

Hi, It is more then likely the heating element or a fuse in the electronic board located on the rear of the refrigerator. The heating element is located on the right hand side looking at the rear of the refrigerator. It is the probe like item that protrudes from the duct work with two black wires attached. You must disconnect the wires from the board then take the door off of the duct work, the the heating element will slide upwards to remove it. Please feel free to contact us 1-888-782-6665

Dometic RM 4224 won't cool on gas or electric. The stack in the back gets super hot, the fridge is not cool at all.

First ensure that the fridge is level. If the fridge is level and still not cooling while there is heat on the rear of the fridge, then you will require a replacement cooling unit. Give Arcticold a call 1-888-782-6665 Web site: ArctiCold Refrigeration We keep it cold

Model RM2652 serial# 44100495 It works off of gas but not on electric. When electric on the lights come on but it won't cool. It only cools when it turned on gas. Can you please help?

I am guessing you have a process type refrigerator. If there is a small flame under the cabinet when in the gas mode, it is. If you listen real close at the back, bottom of the unit when turning on the electric cycle, there should be a faint "click" of the relay to energize the heating element. Hearing the click doesn't always mean the relay is OK. They arch from the high current of the heating element and may be burned or the element could be shot. Each component needs to be checked from the thermostat to the element, in the order they are activated.

There has to be a heat source to circulate the ammonia. . If the If the problem started after a power outage I would suspect a problem in problem in one of the control boards or controls. Verify power to the main board and look for voltage to the heating element in electric mode and power to the ignition circuit for gas.

Our Dometic RM2193 cools on gas but does not work on electric

It could be as simple as a blown fuse at the fridge. Also check to make sure you have turned on the electric switch that allows the fridge to run on AC. Note, you can only operate the fridge on EITHER gas OR electric, but not both sources at the same time, thus, you have to turn off the gas switch before you can run on electric.

When this unit is running on electricity, it has to have the thermostat set for it to run.

Here's a link to the Dometic manual for your model.

Just follow the steps for running on electric and you should be OK.
Hope this helps.

Works great on gas but not on electric

AC electric heating element may be bad. also there should be a fuse for the heating element in the lower control board. Make sure it is unplugged when checking since it is 120 VAC. Hope this helps
