Question about Dometic RM2652 Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrigerator will not cool on electric or gas. When plugged in, it keeps trying to switch to gas. We switched it to gas but it would not stay lit. Checked wiring and found a blue wire disconnected and a 30 amp fuse was pulled. What could be the problem? Where does blue wire go, do you have a wiring diagram, HELP, HELP!!! Model RM2652. Thanks.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

The blue wire disconnected and the 30 amp fuse being pulled is typical of a DC circuit problem. What concerns me is the fact that someone had to put a 30 amp fuse in a 3 or 5 amp circuit. Maybe you meant to say 3.0 amp.

The unit uses a 5 amp fuse on J5 of the main board for AC power and a 3 amp fuse on J1 of the main board for DC power.

See page 17 of this manual:
http://www.gas-refrigerators.com/pdf/RM2852-manual.pdf

For part numbers of parts see Appendix A in this manual:
http://www.dometic.com/c415ec17-8004-4fef-9a97-c68e601bf593.fodoc

You will need to use this manual to troubleshoot:

See step 3 page 2 to start... where is says Operation you have to perform the testing steps listed below Operation.

Operation

AC Volts

Fuse

Heating Element

Wiring
Lower Circuit Board

From the hip given the fuse was removed I would suspect the heating element but.. follow the sequence above.

Does the pilot light stay lit if you continually depress the control valve?
If the pilot light stays lit as long as you keep the valve depressed, then the problem is the thermocouple is bad. The pilot light makes enough electricity via the thermocouple to hold open the gas valve that feeds the burners. If the thermocouple fails to produce that electricity, the gas valve will shut down and switch off the gas flow to the whole unit.

Fridge will not switch from gas to electric when electric is present. Shut of gas and fridge still not switch, it stays on gas. Check light does not come on.


Check the fuses located in your electronic board located on the rear of the fridge. You must remove the board cover to see them. If you replace the fuse and the fuse blows again, then you more then likely have a bad heating element. ArctiCold Refrigeration We keep it cold fb8d9c00-4cdb-47b4-8ed5-b7b384af5c24.jpg

HOW TO LIGHT OVEN WITH A MATCH


Look up product manual on internet.
Look at label located inside oven door, and add .pdf to search parameter to help find manual.
Then read section about lighting appliance.

If power is out, then pilot will not have any gas >> if gas control is electronic.
Many electronic gas controls require electric power to operate circuit board.

In old days, you removed the bottom tray on oven to access burner and pilot orifice. Then you pushed down switch to release gas through pilot tube, and put lit match into the gas stream to light pilot. Hold down switch until pilot flame heated tip of thermocouple which caused magnetic switch to stay open inside gas control. Release switch and pilot stayed lit.

Safety concerns and vast advances in manufacturing cheapness have changed gas appliances so they are more inconvenient for do-it-yourselfers during ordinary power outage.
Cook hamburger over metal bucket with newspaper, and grease on newspaper burns enough to cook hamburger.
People always buy generators and flashlights, but nobody suggest buying barbeque briquets and starter fluid as way to keep warm and cook.

The fridge will not stay lit on lp while traveling.


You should not be using any gas appliances while travelling !
because the motion of traveling and movement makes it unstable and potentially very dangerous

Switch to battery and car while travelling and switch back to mains electric or lp on arrival.

Dometic RM2193 Works on 120V, but not on gaz. I succeded in cleaning the burner jet and I get a flame. It ligth well now but the flame very small. The frig doesn't cool. Help ?


These fridges require that the control switches be in the correct position for the power source you want to use. If you try to operate the fridge on gas and have the electric 120V-AC switch on, all you'll get is the gas pilot light to stay lit. Also, when running on gas, the electric has to be off.

Here's a link to the manual for your unit. Print a copy and save an electronic one for future use, in case you lose your printout.

Hope having the manual helps you to get the fridge working on all the power sources you need! Best regards!
