I would assume that if the frig shut down because of the weld opening up they would make that repair.

Only if your refrigerator is still under warranty.

wait, you are saying that the government agreed to let them stick a disabling device on the frig instead of fixing the defect and if the defect does exist or manifest itself on your frig they won't repair the defect that IS THE SUBJECT OF THE RECALL unless it is still under warranty??? that doesn't sound right, at all.

The short answer is yes.

Since this thread was started back in 2008, one would think that it had been taken care, but in any case i posted a pic of the add on or what Dometic is doing about the problem, there is a little more to it then a piece of metal. If you open the access panel to the fridge on the out side of the camper this is what you should see if the recall was complete provided you unit is effected.

You do not have to wait for a recall card, check the model number and if you are effected call your dealer and make the appoitment, they will handle the rest. This is how i did it and there were no problems with Dometic or the dealer, i never received a recall card.

Logical expectation. But for those of us who have purchased used trailers it seems that the prior owners may not have cared as much about their safety as those on this board...

You are correct, that is why i thought it would help if i posted a pic, i realize not everyone buys new. Some times a pic is worth a thousand words.

Some times it is better to post a new thread on and old subject so that way it would be up to date, but that's ok the info came through.....

I almost forgot all about this recall posting!

I just wanted to thank the members of this forum for posting the information on the Dometic refrigerator recall. Thanks to the posted information I was able to have the recall work performed on our Sierra TT at the end of last summer. No more worrying about possible fires while out for a weekend!

Again, thank you to the members of FRF!
