Question about Dometic RGE400 Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Dometic fridge The refrigerator section seems fine. It maintains a 38-40 degree temp, but the freezer isn't much colder. Ice cube trays will never freeze solid, just skim over. This is on 120 volt. I have just switched it over to propane to see if that helps. We are not moving, but staying in one spot, and the electric side seems to be the problem. Alex, action_travel@yahoo.com

    Thanks for the suggestion but it turned out to be a leak at a weld in this NDR1062. I had to replace the cooling unit......works great now. I did NOT replace it with a Dometic thin wall unit, either. This unit seems to cool better than Dometics. It maintains 5 degrees in the freezer and 35-38 degrees in the refrigerator section with the temp set at the middle setting with the OAT at 95 degrees.

    Thanks for the help.......Grump

I would look for a ventilation problem. If the fridge is working at that level nothing wrong with electric. The unit needs air to move up and out the top to make the freezer work. It sounds like the air is only moving the wrong way out the lower vent. Careful it could just be a birds nest but it may be a large wasp nest blocking the roof opening.

    I'm glad you got it fixed. NDR1062 had a recall on it. The burn chamber heats up to much causing cracks in tubes. Make sure you have the kit installed on the new unit also. If your unit was less than three years old even if your not the original owner they should have covered your coil.

Ice Melting towards the front of the ice hopper


Check that the fan motor wiring has not been disturbed. If the freezer fan is not working, the fridge will generally start cooling but due to poor air circulation , it will stay colder at the back but will get warmer at the front hence causing the ice to melt. The usual temp for a food compartment is around 4 degrees. The freezer should be -18 degrees celcius.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge. the fan in the freezer blows air through it. there is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control.

Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp. try to chec in the user guide.

Hope helps.

Ice maker not dumping as frequently and cubes freezing one large chunk


The first thing I would check is the cleanliness of the condenser coil under the fridge. Make sure the fan under there is running, and that the coil is clear of dust. The ice maker requires 15 degrees for a period of time before it will make ice and dump. If the temp in the freezer is colder than this, then it is likely the ice maker needs replaced. They can be replaced fairly easily with just a couple tools. (1/4" nut driver and a flat screw driver). There is a plug where it plugs into the freezer side wall, and a bent tube that supplies water to the tray. If not sure what to do, have a service tech look at it.

Fresh food section not maintaining cold temp


You're frozen up.  Defrost completely.  Then, clean your condenser.  Make sure to never leave open containers in the fridge...water condenses into ice.  If you still have problems, you may be low on gas.

The freezer is too cold.the highest temp. is 8.we can't go any higher. Our ice cream is so cold we can't scoop it out. we have an RB215LASH bottom freezer.


The fridge (on/off) is actually regulated by the thermostat in the refrigerator section. If the door leaks, it will force the compressor on too often. Otherwise, there is a port where the cold air is delivered (near ice cubes) -try (partially) blocking it with tape
