Question about Dometic RGE400 Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Suddenly our rv fridge won't switch from gas to electric. My husband is an electrician, and the power supply to the rig is adequate, no circuit tripped, no fuse blown. Any suggestions for what else to check? I'm unsure of the model # but it is Dometic rv fridge, top freezer, in 2005 Sunnybrook 5th wheel.

Plugged camper into 120 volt everything works electrically except ceiling lights dont work

* Check 12 volt DC system (may be camper battery or car battery, though most only use the camper battery.)
* Camper may be using 12 volt DC lights so it can be turned on while your on the road or not hooked up to an 120 VAC or 240 VAC outlet.
* If you are using 120 VAC lights then check the neutral line (note; HIGH voltage here. Get help from an electrician or at least the RV park handyman.) The problem may be at the outlet (the RV site's problem) or more likely in your plug or cable (the big cord) as it does get abused, run over, kinked, etc. Need to have it checked by an electrician.
* Check the light bulbs; is it seated properly? Replace if burnt out. Have electrician test if there is power at the socket.
* Final; Be safe and have a qualified electrician service your camper.

FURNACE WON'T TURN ON: I have a 1999 Fleetwood, Prowler RV. The furnace won't turn on.

Check the exhaust port of the furnace. Wasps like to build nests in there and it will not allow the furnace to ignite if blocked. You have a gas detector and it is turned on I assume? I forgot this many times.

Rv fridge won't get cold when on lp gas

check for a blue flame at the burner located at the base of the boiler assembly there is a viewing port, my guess is there is no flame, check with ohm meter for continuity across the gas control valve contacts the should be about 30 ohms across it if so reconnect the wires leading to the valve, set meter to volts , view the meter and have an assistant to switch the fridge on there should be a voltage appearing at the contacts this is only momentarily if the flame dos not light if there is no voltage your control board needs to be replaced if there is a voltage than the gas valve is faulty or gas supply is not present

Dometic rv fridge runs fine on elec, lights on gas but in one min shuts down. Dometic RV S1621 fridge runs fine with elec, when start gas operation. The burner runs for about 30 seconds then shuts off....

It is key that all control switches are in the correct position, depending on what power source you are using, gas, electric, etc. If the switches are not in the proper setting, the unit will not operate.

Here's the manual for your fridge that should be printed out for your use and reference (and reading enjoyment). It has all the info needed to operate and troubleshoot it.

Typically, when using any gas appliance with a pilot light, the sensor has to first be hot enough to trigger it to allow the safety gas shutoff to open and allow the gas to flow to the pilot/burner. Follow the instructions and you should be all set.

Hope you find this helpful and best regards!

Power loss to HP Deskjet 9800

I think you blew it when the power source switched. When you try to power it up and don't get any lights, that usually means that the power supply in the printer is shot. Sorry. You might try getting warranty service on it.

Hi akula, 200 ks to a fridgie, LG appliance, you must be in Australia;) Is it the earth leakage circuit breaker operating. If so, then you have a leakage problem to earth from the heater pad(not quite sure what that is, but this problem will need to be repaired. Am doing some research to see if there is anything that can be done without just getting a new fridge. Back to you soon.
