Question about Dometic Refrigerators

1 Answer

Our Dometec refrigerator in our 2006 Fleetwood Sequoia pop-up camper is giving us problems. Sometimes it will cool to 32 degrees. Other times we can't get it below 60 degrees. We've checked for yellow powder -- none. Checked for the smell of ammonia -- none. Can you give us any other things to check? Also, why does it cool good sometimes and not other times. Does the weather temperature outside make a difference? We first noticed the problem when the outside temperatures were in the mid to upper 90s. Thanks for any help that you can give.

    Above all, we shall find it useful to remember what is here recorded, in dealing with young Christians. We must not expect perfection in a new convert. We must not set him down as graceless and godless and a false professor, because at first he sees but half the truth and commits many mistakes. His heart may be right in the sight of God, and yet, like the disciples, he may be very slow of understanding in the things of the Spirit. We must bear with him patiently, and not cast him aside. We must give him time to grow in grace and knowledge, and hilatter end may find him ripe in wisdom, like Peter and John. It is a blessed thought that Jesus, our Master in heaven, despises none of His people. Incredible and blameworthy as their slowness to learn undoubtedly is, His patience never gives way. He goes on teaching them, "line upon line, precept upon precept." Let us do likewise. Let it be a rule with us never to despise the weakness and dulness of young Christians. Wherever we see a spark of true grace, however dim and mixed with infirmity, let us be helpful and kind. Let us do as we would be done by.

It can have something to do with the wether. As it gets hotter you need more air flow on the back to pull the air up and away. You can add a fan just like the one on a computer. Also make sure the thermister inside on the coil is attached tightly to the fins in the back of the fridge. The control boards have been known to work with an inttermitent problem. The worst thing is you could have a floating blockage in the coil if this is the case it will happen more often and eventually stop working.

How to winterize pop up camper 2007 fleetwood pop up it . this site won't let go any where except this car site so if you know how to winterize a pop up camper let me know

Any place that sells campers can advise you. I would disconnect the water supply line underneath the camper and open all faucets. This will drain the lines. Pour some antifreeze especially designed for this purpose in the toilet and in all sinks. Don't forget to flush the toilet and pour a little in the tank after you turn the water off. This will prevent the traps from freezing.
