Question about Dometic Refrigerators

1 Answer

Our Dometec refrigerator in our 2006 Fleetwood Sequoia pop-up camper is giving us problems. Sometimes it will cool to 32 degrees. Other times we can't get it below 60 degrees. We've checked for yellow powder -- none. Checked for the smell of ammonia -- none. Can you give us any other things to check? Also, why does it cool good sometimes and not other times. Does the weather temperature outside make a difference? We first noticed the problem when the outside temperatures were in the mid to upper 90s. Thanks for any help that you can give.

    Above all, we shall find it useful to remember what is here recorded, in dealing with young Christians. We must not expect perfection in a new convert. We must not set him down as graceless and godless and a false professor, because at first he sees but half the truth and commits many mistakes. His heart may be right in the sight of God, and yet, like the disciples, he may be very slow of understanding in the things of the Spirit. We must bear with him patiently, and not cast him aside. We must give him time to grow in grace and knowledge, and hilatter end may find him ripe in wisdom, like Peter and John. It is a blessed thought that Jesus, our Master in heaven, despises none of His people. Incredible and blameworthy as their slowness to learn undoubtedly is, His patience never gives way. He goes on teaching them, "line upon line, precept upon precept." Let us do likewise. Let it be a rule with us never to despise the weakness and dulness of young Christians. Wherever we see a spark of true grace, however dim and mixed with infirmity, let us be helpful and kind. Let us do as we would be done by.

It can have something to do with the wether. As it gets hotter you need more air flow on the back to pull the air up and away. You can add a fan just like the one on a computer. Also make sure the thermister inside on the coil is attached tightly to the fins in the back of the fridge. The control boards have been known to work with an inttermitent problem. The worst thing is you could have a floating blockage in the coil if this is the case it will happen more often and eventually stop working.

Sometimes when the refrigerator temp is 37* some of the food will get frozen.


Your thermostat is faulty. The vegetables cannot freeze at 37 degrees. It will not freeze until it's at 32 degrees. The sensor is wrong as it is impossible to freeze anywhere above 32.

Find thermistor/thermostat that is usually attached by plastic holder at back on one of the fins in fridge compartment. Pull it off, and move it over to left 2 fins, then give 24-48 hrs and see if any change.

We are suffering intermittent failure to cool. The refrigerator will cool fine for long periods, and then for no apparent reason stop cooling. Then it will "magically" start working again. There doesn't...


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


The defrost system has a defrost thermostat Which is clamped to the evaporator coils behind the rear cover inside the freezer. When the defrost heater is on the temp rises and when it reaches around 32 degrees at the defrost thermostat it cuts the heater off to prevent excess heating. Yours may be defective and not cutting off. Sometimes you can tell it's bad by the swollen appearance. You can test it with an ohm meter. It should show open when warm and closed when below 32 degrees.
