Question about Dometic Refrigerators

1 Answer

I just bought an RV with a Dometic RM2400 refrigerator. Seems to cool a little bit on gas (not too much so far) and doesn't work at all on 12volts or electric. Is is possible to fix this, what would I need? If it sounds like its shot what do you currently offer as a replacement that is the same size that will fit in my cabinetry. I've looked and poked around but I can't really figure out how this thing comes out of there. Thank you Tom 858-610-5043

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.

SOURCE: will not cool on electricity

Hi there. There are actually a few causes of your problem but I would begin by checking the fuse. here is the Dometic troubleshooting manual for your model. It should help.

SOURCE: 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.

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!

NDR 1292 - Was freezing/cooling on electric, but stopped freezingcooling, tried gas but doesn't freeze or cool


Since it does not work on either AC or gas - do you have DC to the unit? I have spent many hours troubleshooting a Dometic that turned out to be a corroded DC connection.

10 months ago? Do have any warranty on this?
As far as adding refrigerant. Yes - you can add some - but you need to fix the leak first, since it will be quite expensive to keep putting refrigerant in. I would first try to get the mfc repair it and if that fails I would call a serviceperson.
note: fixing a leak and re-charging the system is going to take someone 'very' knowledgable of air conditioners.
good luck!

I have a dometic dm2652 rv fridge. its new and is


The DM2652 comes with an optional cooling fan to help with cooling the amonia. The fan cycles on and off as required as it has a tempeature sensor (thermistor). We turn ours off at night by removing the inline fuse (glass tube fuse 3 amp) located in your outside acces panel. The fuse is located in a black fuse holder with a re wire connecting both sides.

Our rv has a dometic rm2600 fridge that smells of ammonia inside and has a little bit of yellow residue in behind service panel. is the fridge wrecked or is it worth repairing. the rv is 27 years old.


Hi,
Sorry to give you the bad news. The ammonia smell is the the refrigerant
leaking out. Dometic uses ammonia that is heated and then condensed to cool. It will all leak out and quit cooling.
The fridge is wrecked. There are shops that rebuild the units. Beings as ammonia is corrosive one must assume there may be other leaks ready to appear. There are RV salvage yards that sell good used units.
Again Sorry for your loss.

Help! In 2006 I purchased a used RV with a dometic model 2408 refrigerator that did not work. After reading up on Absorption refrigerators and repair facilities I had it rebuilt by RV Mobile in Everett,...


The evaporator coil is usually located in the freezer compartment, and there are ducts with dampers that send cool air to the refrigerator. It sounds to me like that may be your problem. It seems that if you move the appliance around a little, (cleaning it and the like), then for a short period you start to get a semblance of cooling. Hope this helps

Make sure the condenser fan underneath the unit is running when the compressor is. I don't know what else it could be unless the door gaskets are in bad shape.
