The Check Light On The Dometic Refrigerator In My RV Keeps Coming On.
(Dallas, Texas, USA)
How to Fix RV Fridge Check Light on Problem
My check light on my Dometic Refrigerator keeps coming on. It will run on gas for 2-4 hours then the light will come on, then I can switch over to electric and sometimes it will run another 2-3 hours, then after than no matter what I put it on, the check light keeps coming on. Any suggestions? Please email me what I can do. It's on my deer lease and I can't bring it to a dealer to repair until February.
ANSWER: Hi Anthony, I have a pretty good idea of what is going on and I am not the bearer of good news. Even though you do not tell me what model Dometic Fridge you have; the problem you are experiencing is a common one.
In all likelihood the power board on your refrigerator needs to be replaced. There is also a possibility that the entire Dometic Control Board needs to be replaced. This is not a do-it-yourself job and as far as I know there is no work around other then replacing the power board on your refrigerator.
The only thing I can suggest is check in your area to see if there is a mobile RV repair company that can come to you to do the repairs (weather and terrain permitting).
Since I do not know exactly what model Dometic fridge you have, I need to make you aware that there is a major safety recall on certain models of Dometic Refrigerators
. This recall is not related to the current problem you are having.
For more information on this recall you should visit the Dometic USA Recall Page
. You will be required to provide your fridge’s model number and serial number in order to find out if your refrigerator is subject to the recall.
Even if you were aware of this recall and your fridge was not part of it; you need to recheck with Dometic as they recently expanded the recall to other Dometic models.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news on all of this.
