Your cooling unit is done, and will need replacement. I will urge you to take down model and serial number and go to their site, or call Dometic , ( www.dometicusa.com) 1-800-544-4881, and inquire whether your unit falls into the recall on some of those models. You may end up with a new cooling unit, free of charge.

I Have a Dometic RM2652 it heats up in the back, but, neither the fridge or freeze will cool down.. I've checked the fuses, tried gas and electric.


First thing I would do is check this dometic site for recall information. Have model and serial number ready.

My Dometic RM2652 in my camper isn't getting cool enough when it's set on electricity. It feels cool, but not cold. The ice in my freezer turned to water, but it was still cold. The refrigerator section is...


Sounds like maybe your element for Heating when on hydro may be faulty. A voltage check at spades on board connected to element will confirm. If power to element but no heat felt at element should confirm it's faulty. Remember, if stack is already hot from propane, element will also feel hot, so it has to be out or fridge cooled down at back first.(off)

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.

My Rm2652 Refrigerator in my Rv just quit cooling. The electric element checks good and heats as well as on gass. I did not smell any amonia odor from a leak and have not taken it out and turned it upside...


You need to have 12 volt supplied at all times to make it work
Check to be sure you have a good 12 + and a good ground.
Lots of times the coolant leaks without you smelling anything Slowly over time

My Dometic trailer refridgerator is warm but freezer is freezing.


Brandi4723,

Unfortunately, you have a bad cooling unit in your refrigerator. Then ammonia smell means that you have a leak in the unit. TURN THE FRIDGE OFF!!! Do not use the fridge on AC or Gas until you have the cooling unit replaced or buy a new fridge. Depending on the model number and serial number of the fridge, it may be under recall by dometic and you might be able to have it repaired for free. If you will provide me with the model number, serial number and the serial number of the cooling unit (found on the outside of the unit in the fridge compartment, lower tank of cooling unit), I can then tell you the pricing of the repairs or whether it is under recall.

Again, TURN THE FRIDGE OFF and do not use it...RISK OF FIRE!!!!

Hope this helps,

Jeff

Dimetic RM2652 refrgerator problem


Check the coils to the left of the burn chamber they should be hot not as hot as the burn chamber but hot to the touch. If not you could have blockage in the coils not allowing the fluids to flow. Also check that the flu area is clear no nest of any sort wasp or birds.

Refrigerator will not cool


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.
