2008 camper. fridge keeps switching over to gas. Turned it off & back on, it goes back to AC. The camper is plugged into a 50amp outlet & all else works fine.


Check your fuses and circuit breakers to see if any are tripped or blown. If you are handy with a test meter you can check for power at the refrigerator control panel. There will be a vented cover outside behind your fridge and there are two leads going to a heating element. You can check for power or continuity through the element.

check that some bugger hasn"t turned your taps off or gas bottle -otherwise call a camper trailer dealer and ask the the best advice on what to do -might just be a blocked gas jet -but you will need a licensed gas fitter to check it for you -wont cost too much

I know this is a vague question. (trying to help out hubby) I am currently at work, however, our norcold elect/gas fridge/freezer in our mallard camper stopped working properly. the lp gas light is lit,...


Don't be despirate.

You need a little more knowledge ... I'm here to give it.

Your RV refrigerator requires 12 volts to operate; on gas or on electric ... it needs 12 volts - period.

Now then, your frig will get 12 volts from your 'power converter' AND/OR your battery. You do have a battery in your unit, correct? If not - why not? Get one. (Your power converter cannot provide all the 12 volts you potentially require in all circumstances. It is there to charge the battery, which CAN supply all the 12 volts you require. The converter can probably put out 15 amps - your battery can put out 100 amps or more (@ 12 volts DC). Relying only on the converter for your 12 volts will cause over heating and will eventually destroy the converter. Batteries are about $100.00 - converters are about $300.00.

As you know, your frig will run on gas if you are plugged in or on generator ... that allows your frig to get the 12 volts required to run the controls.

What about electric operation? If you are plugged in or on generator, you can run on electric because your Norcold has 12 volts from the converter and/or battery.

Whats going on? Your absorbtion type refrigerator requires a heat source to boil the ammonia mixture to create "heat removing" (you can't really cool anything ... only remove the heat from it!) You can heat the ammonia with a flame or with a electric CALROD. However, the control panel that drives the whole operation runs of 12 volts.

You have a battery and generator and are plugged in and it still doesn't work? You will find a fuse on the control panel in the compartment accessible from the outside of your unit. Check/replace the faulty fuse and you will be back in business.

I hope this helps you and hubby with your Norcold Frig. Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com. If you found this solution to be helpful, please vote. Thanks

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.

Dometic fridge inop on A.C. power


There is a fuse at the back of the fridge located near the compressor. You've done quite a bit of checking, so rathe than try to get into stuff, here's some quick info and a link to the manual for your fridge, which should help.

The control switches have to be set a specific way depending on what source is being used and the thermostat turned on when using AC power. Check item #3 Operating Instructions on Page 6 and the control panel switches on Page 9.

Here's the manual for your model, save a copy and print it out and take some time to review the section #3 Operating Instructions on page 6.

Possibly the installation instructions will assist in determining how it was installed in your RV, but usually the installers build around stuff, so you might have to remove some trim in order to get the fridge out, etc.

Hope you find this helpful and will you resolve your issue.
