SOURCE: dometic rm 2607 makes a gurgling sound when

If your cooling unit is gurgling, then you have air in the system or a bad cooling unit. There is a process known as "burping" that should help repair this. It is a rather lengthy process and will require two people.

1. Access the rear of the refrigerator. Turn off the LP gas to the unit. Remove the LP Gas line and the 12Volt supply. Unplug the fridge.
2. Remove the screws in the rear at the bottom and then remove the screws from the inside.
3. Pull the fridge out and lay it down on it's right side for 8 hours.
4. Flip the fridge on it's top for 8 hours
5. Now the left side, then back to normal.
6. Reinstall the fridge and turn gas back on.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

SOURCE: Camper fridge dont cool

I also had the same Model Make. I removed my fridge and placed it upside down, occasionally shaking fridge within a 24 hr period. This seemed to re-mix the ammonia solution and the fridge is working.
This may work for you but look for yellow stains if you see any your fridge is leaking and would require repair.

SOURCE: I have a Dometic RV fridge that wont get cold. it

It sounds like your cooling unit is going out. Here's a couple of things to check. Do you smell any ammonia when you open either one of the doors? When you look at the rear of the fridge, do you see anything that looks like rusty water that has run down any of the metal tubes and dried up? If the answer to either one of these is "yes", then youll need to start looking for a new fridge or replace the cooling unit on the one that you have.

What do I check to fix my Dometic Americana refrigerator. It won't start using electric or gas.


Fist off before you get crazy replacing things make sure the camper is level when testing this. Gas will not run to it if you are not level. Also make sure the gas is turned on and make sure you have selected automatic or gas only on your fridge. Also give it about an hour before you test the temp. These take a bit longer to start feeling cool. If all of that does not work you will need to check the refrigerant, igniter(for the gas side) and the compressor. Also make sure the fuses are good to go at the main panel and that the breakers are in the "on" position

Dometic DM2652 quit working on elec,tried gas worked for a little than quit,wont cool can hear it running.


If you can hear it running and it sounds like it is gurgling or boiling then it is you cooling unit that has leaked. Your cooling unit is charged with hydrogen and ammonia. When the hydrogen leaks it causes the ammonia to boil more rapidly, hence what you hear. You will require a new cooling unit for your refrigerator. This is something that can be done by anyone in just a few hours with no specialized tools needed. You can give Arcticold a call toll free (1-888-782-6665) or check out our online Store I have also attached a how to video for the installation of a Arcticold New Lifetime Warranty cooling unit. 3a202669-372c-42db-9d46-dcb343b69e0b.jpg

Stove is making a gurgling or bubbling noise


I am sorry I have a gas phobia after using gas for heating and cooking both cloths and food for some years some 50 years ago.
So everything connected with gas is potentially dangerous.

Sounds like a faulty temp guage/r a strange malfuntion in a sensor to me as well, only doing it when it going up hill really makes no sense for the way the cooling system works so I doubt that its actually running hot, which is likely why he asked about the gurgling noise, it would force water back into the resivoir if it was running hot assuming that the thermostatic radiator cap is working properly.

The Hi and Lo gas valve coils do they work in tandem ? Does the Lo stays on all the time ? Ruy ...


Their is 2 coil hosing but one of them has 3 wires and 2 coils inside it. The ignitor does 2 jobs, it lights the fire and acts as a thermocouple through the holding coil. If the flame does not ignite after the sensor detects the heat from it and shuts down then once the ignitor cools down the gas valve is shut down even if power is going to the gas valve. When the temp drops below 105f in the drum the control closes contacts inside allowing power to be supplied to the gas assembly. The ignitor and flame sensor along with the booster holding and secondary coils are all energized at once but the solenoids won't open the valve because the ignitor is hogging the power. The power supplied to it runs through the flame sensor. When the temp inside the sensor reaches a point the bi-metal inside tripped the power to the ignitor and the power gets diverted over to the secondary coil. Thr flame stays on till the temp inside the drum reaches 160f at which time the control thermostat opens circuit to the gas assembly and power is shut down. The drum continues to tumble and when the temp drops once agin below 105 the process is repeated and another blast of heat is shot into the dryer. So what goes wrong? Faulty flame sensor sticking/open, cracked ignitor, old coils that work intermittently or not at all when hot but work again when cooled.themobilian_2866.jpgthemobilian_2865.jpg themobilian_2868.jpgMore here.
