Dometic dmr702 right 2 lights flashing-no Fridge

I've seen quite a few Refrigerator tech questions, but haven't seen this specific error/check code that i'm experiencing.
Fridge worked all week while camping, on the way home at some point the right 2 lights started flashing (3 lights in a row for the temp control, only the right 2 flash).

I have power and gas, the fridge light comes on, but the fridge doesn't want to start. Neither on AU or LP....
Ideas?
Calling the dealer when they open, but thought I'd try to self heal if it's simple...and I'm afraid it's not simple

Are you sure two of the three lights are flashing and its not the far right flashing and bleeding through to the middle? There is no code for middle and right light flashing on the 702 at least according to the install manual. Right light flashing is out of range DC voltage.


I would Pull the 5A DC fuse out of the power board, or disconnect the battery for a second while not on shore power. Then try again with the shore power energized and the battery tested or known to be above 8 volts.

Good tips, did that and checked that. 13.63v on the battery, and it's definitely the right two lights lit up flashing. I have the dealer service guy also puzzled....probably calling the manufacturer hotline now.

I think we're camping next week using coolers....so non-glamping...

FIXED
Manufacturer says they've seen this before with the right two lights. They say it's the same as the left two, and is an overheating condition.
A. Check the lp flu behind the fridge and ensure nothing is blocking (insulation or critters, bugs).
B. Reset the resetable fuse located on the flu itself (button is in between the 2 wires on the round sensor dealio).
No mo flashing lights...fridge is cooling down.

That's good to know.

When the left and middle light flash, that's the code for the thermafuse or flue overheat. It says that in the manual.

When the middle and right light flash, that's the code for the thermafuse or flue overheat. That must mean the board was soldered together by the chinese person sitting on the other side of the table from the person who solders together the boards that flash left and middle.

The real question is if only the left or right light flash now what is it?

Just a tip:
No you didn't check the battery. You checked the output of the converter while you were plugged in or running the genny. A 100% full battery measures NO MORE than 12.7.
AFTER charging a battery may READ more which is called surface charge and is not true. You must disconnect the battery for 24 hours BEFORE taking a reading to get an accurate reading.

Good catch. That sounds correct. It still wouldn't trip any low battery issues or conditions though (I believe).

True......as long as you stayed plugged in. But after unplugging you could find a dead or close to dead battery. In any event...problem solved and a tip for the future. Happy camping!
