That's a thermal fuse and it kicks off if the chimney overheats for some reason. If you reset it and it kicks off again you have something else going on and whatever it is its not good. Burner producing too much heat, blocked airflow or chimney/flue etc. Don't take chances if that thermal fuse keeps popping.

I looked this morning but I couldn't find any reset button. Guess I'll be taking it to the dealer.

Did you actually test the fuses or just visually inspect them?
If you didn't test them with a meter, I'd do that before anything else.

thanks for the pic. I didn't notice a reset button on mine. I looked at that this morning. I also didn't see a fuse on that red wire. I guess I'll check that out before I drag it into the dealer.

To me this all seems like a fuse blown somewhere.

I had same issue last week. It was the vertical fuse behind cover, lower left. It did not look blown.

You need to download the correct manuals and service documentation from Dometic for your exact model. Some do not have a reset on the thermal fuse and some do not have a separate thermal fuse controlled by the switch in Turb's picture such as this.

In this model the thermofuse is one assembly and it has no reset.



Needless to say, if your having issues with thermo fuses no matter where they are located that's a more critical issue than if the fridge is not cooling because you're playing with fire............literally.

I tested both fuses with a digital multimeter. Both fuses gave a tone indicating that they had connectivity between the two end.
