Question about Dometic RGE400 Top Freezer Refrigerator

3 Answers

Silhouette by Dometic RV fridge

I own a 1994 24 Foot Scotty, newly acquired (not new). In testing out the fridge at home, I noticed that the freezer works but not the refrigerator (sorry spelling) part. I read in the manual that the most common problem for the fridge not to work properly would be because of a blow fuse. Now I haven't gotten new ones yet, but could anyone explain why the freezer would work but not the other part?

    Our Dometic RM 2401 works perfect with Electric(!AC) but when we try to run off of gas with the freezer compartment level and the flue clean as a whistle, The freezer works great but we also get a minimum temp in the lower compartment of 50-55 Deg F. What's up with this?

Tuna, it sounds like your thermistor is bad. Once the fridge reaches 40 degrees, the thermistor is supposed to tell the board to stop cooling and maintain. You can test it with an Ohmmeter.

Could possibly be a problem with leveling. These unit need to be level to function properly. Never off level side to side or toward the front. Can be a degree or two off level toward the back. Cool down time from start-up is about 12 hours.

Our dometic rv fridge freezes things in the fridge compartment even though we lowered the temp. control on the cooler fins? It's a model RM 2652.

I have an old GE fridge with ice maker in freezer, water started leaking and flooded floor of freezer and started leaking outside freezer. What's going on & how do I fix it?


I think you need a new fridge/freezer. Look for offers now on sale some are quite reasonably priced and home Depot has interest free credit.

Just noticed that the bottom of samsung RFG238AA


Your settings should be -5 to -10 in freezer and +37 in the fresh food compartment. This will keep the unit from running too long and your floor temp to be normal..
Consult your users manual!

How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) 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.


If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Fridge and Freezer losing cooling


we bought a f&p fridge freezer and in summer noticed it wasn't cooling and the freezer wasn't freezing, when the service guy came out he noticed our ducted air con was blowing onto the fridge, once we had redirected the air con outlet the fridge started working as normal, apparently f&p's work on air being convected around the cabinet of the fridge and air blowing on the fridge can effect the temperature of the convected air. hope this helps you or someone
