if your hitting buttons and te display is not responding be sure your not in sabbath mode if so, refer to your owner's manual and it will tell you how to get out of it. and be careful whern you are cleanning that display. make sure you don't use any ammonia based cleaners. the display will soak up the ammonia base and cause shorts in the circuit, causing you to have to replace the display board.

Leak detector

First off refrigerators dont use ammonia. A gas detector like you may have probably uses catalytic response to detect flammable vapors. These detectors are the least expensive. If you have ammonia that is used for fertilizer like farmers use, it may detect it because anhydrous ammonia is combustible. (not flammable). Ammonia has a very strong odor though and that should be your first indication of a leak in an ammonia system. Ammonia that is used for cleaning does not have the same properties as the industrial ammonia that is used in other applications. Therefore it will not be detected.

Do the bacteria present in the aquarium enough to deal with ammonia?

When you setup a new aquarium, in the first weeks you must gradually build up the source of ammonia to allow time for the beneficial bacteria to grow. The bacteria breaks down the ammonia into nitrates which is much less toxic than ammonia, over time the nitrates become dangerous to your fish therefore you'll have to install a filtration system in your aquarium, sooner rather than later.

Hi, we have a caravan which has an electrolux RM360 gas/electric fridge installed. There is a very weird smell coming out when the fridge is turned on. Its like an ammonia smell it is really strong,

Travel refrigerators use an ammonia coolant instead of freon. So the smell is telling you that you have a leak in the sealed system.

Suggest you look for a replacement fridge OR a rebuilt unit because that is usually cheaper than taking it to a service center for repairs.

Dometic RM2652 will not cool on A/C or propane, I've checked fuses, and AC to refer. I opened the access panel on outside of Travel Trailer, and there is yellow powder on bottom, and some on heating tube....

Ammonia is just what you a re smelling as the coolant is ammonia based Your cooling unit has leaked and is done for- Sorry I had to be the one to tell you

2 choices Replace the refer or Replace the coiling unit, I would suggest replacing the refer and having a new warranty

Roper fridge not cooling like supposed to, freezer is

Defrost completely. The unit is probably iced up. Make sure your gaskets are clean and sealing well. If it happens again, we need to find out why. Also...clean the condenser.
