Question about Dometic RM2652 Refrigerator
These often have a recall kit installed that has a thermal fuse in the burner area....when the burner overheats the thermal fuse shuts the hole thing down to prevent fire, the ammonia smell is probably from the cooling unit. check under your burner, to see if you see a bright yellow powder or liquid if you do, your cooling unit is for sure bad and is dangerous to run. The thermal fuse shuts the fridge down completely and can be reset by pushing in the button in the middle.

The recall has nothing to do with your fridge not working. Your cooling unit has gone bad. And yes you can get a new fridge for a few hundred more than a new cooling unit. And sooner or later PPL motorhomes will run out of their cheap stock. The fridges they have are out of production. I know I am a Dometic dealer.

TURN THE REFRIGERATOR OFF AND DO NOT USE!!!!
You have a bad cooling unit. This is the entire assembly on the back of the refrigerator that draws the heat out of the box. You will have to either have the cooling unit replaced or buy a new refrigerator. The cost difference is usually around 200 to 500 depending.
Hope this helps,

You need a new cooling unit. That ammonia smell means that your heating unit is shot, needs to be replaced, and there are a coupla ways to go here.
1) Order up a rebuilt (or new) online, and replace it yourself. (Handyman skill level:fair.) $500.
2) Go to an RV repair shop and have that done $700.00 - $100.00
3) Buy a new fridge. $1000.00 ++
