You can bypass the controls and hook 110 power up to the both heating elements (they should be hooked together already) to test for sure, let it run for 8 hrs, if it cools right than it is a control problem. but more than likely you have a bad cooling unit.

Make sure the thermister is attached firmly to the fins in the back. The boards on a Norcold can be reset a service center familiar with this process is your best bet. It takes disconecting the board and then shorting it out best to leave it to some one who is familiar.

Freezer works fine on propane but not the fridge

You may wish to check the flue clear anything that you find. Old birds next etc. Also make sure the flame and orifice are clean free from debris or rust. Propane should burn blue not orange. Incorrect gas setting if the flame is orange. Some yellow at the tip is ok. Proper adjustments are critical. Have you tried the unit on AC?
Other tips I have read indicate possible freezing in the back.
Defrost freezer completely as some here mentioned and restart see if this helps. Here is a good RV forum I saw good tips worth investigating.

If your not comfortable cleaning the jets and adjusting the flame have a professional do this. Safety comes first!
Good luck!

I have a Domatic RM 2852 in my RV. The freezer works fine but the refrigerator won't cool to 40 on electricity. It cools fine on gas.

You need to unplug the heating element from the circuit board and using a digital multi meter check the ohms. You should read approximately 44 ohms +/- 10%. If it is out of range change the heating element.

Last year my dometic rv fridge would run fine on propane then up and quit cooling, the freezer would warm up and the pilot light was still on. When I turned it off for 1/2 hour it started to cool with no...

Here is an interesting possible problem to look in to

First a bit of background on LP gas

Your LP system operates on 1/2 lb of pressure Not much more than a breath of air. Keep this in mind for a minute.

A lot of RV's have been built over the years using rubber hoses to connect LP gas to water heaters, furnaces, and refers.
Over time rubber and LP gas create an oil, if you have a low spot in your rubber line that oil will collect in the low spot - - Remember the 1/2# of pressure from earlier? Does not take a lot of oil build up to over power the 1/2 # of pressure and now you are not getting LP gas to your refer.
This is one possibility. The lines will need to be removed from the refer and other low setting items like the water heater and furnace also from the LP tank regulator and the using NO MORE THAN 10 pounds of air pressure blown out. BE VERY CAREFUL this oil is some really nasty stuff - cover the ends of the lines with a cloth in a plastic bag with some holes poked in the bag and rubber band it on.

But first lets look at some other options

Your refer has to have 12 volt power to it to operate
90+ % of all 12 volt issues are grounding problems.
Make sure you have at least 12 to 13 volts to the refer and that you have a good ground.

Next Are you getting gas flow to the burner?
If you are getting gas try changing your thermocouple They run a couple of buck and is an easy test.

If you have 12 volt power and gas have you noticed an ammoina smell?

This model has been known to lose the cooling unit
Hope this helps

RV freezer cools, but fridge section doesn't

Sir, To solve this problem, you must open the compressor area at the back bottom of the refrigerator and chek the temperature of the pressure line. If the temperature is between 55celcius to 60 than its ok. Or else you need to change the refrigerant. I suggest you to contact the service authority.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Propane refrigerator?

Yes , when the refer needs to cool it will fire up only with the LP. In the electric selection it will work the same way. Do not fret , it is working ok.

The lowest setting in the freezer compartment may be set to cold holding back cooling to the refrigerator. Try your settings at mid-point on both refrigerator and freezer settings.
