Question Dometic Refr is a FREEZER!

We seem to have the opposite problem that most have with the Fridge. It is freezing everything in the refridgerator compartment. We have tried adjusting the temp with the sensor in the compartment(moved it up and down an inch at a time), made sure it's level. Has anyone ever had one of these sensors go out? Can't figure out what else to do. The so called owners manual is pretty worthless regarding this problem. Any ideas? Domectic RM 2852 running on elec.
BTW the recall work has been done.

Have your thermostat tested.

edit: The reason why is that when the thermostat dies (as I understand it) the fridge reverts to a "max cold" mode.

Look in the fridge and see if you have a plastic piece that will slide up and down the end cooling fin. That plastic piece holds the thermostat, and sliding up and down adjusts the temp in the fridge. Also make sure the sensor is in the plastic piece, sometime it comes out. Hope that helps!

Thanks for the pic. We do have this and have moved it up and down an inch at a time with no change. At least with the pic I know wihich way the adjustment is. We were just guessing LOL

These units go into "limp mode" when the thermostat fails or one of the boards, My Dometic manual states to replace the thermostat first. Here is a link to a aftermarket thermostat that has a dial adjuster instead of the slide up and down thing. This link also has the directions for replacement, it took me 10 mins to replace and fixed mine when it went in the the "limp mode"
