Per their website - If the refrigerator model number begins with NDM (instead of NDR) or DM (instead of RM), the refrigerator is not affected by the recall.

Well I just checked my Info with the web page and guess what? I need to do the recall!!! ( Dometic Recall) If you haven't checked your unit do so ASAP before you have an issue.

Did the same thing you did, when I got down to the RV shop they took a quick look and said it was already repaired.

Dometic refrigerator recall

I am furious! We bought our used 2005 Keystone this past summer (2015). First weekend we took it out, we set up the trailer and we had to leave for a few hours. When we returned, the ammonia smell at the back of the refrigerator could choke a horse. The unit had already shut down, as I assume all the ammonia had leaked out. Called Dometic after seeing our unit was part of the recall. They told me I would have to replace the cooling unit, then they would pay for the recall fix. Seriously, this is how they address an obvious inferior unit ? They obviously know the unit is prone to breaking down or they would never have issued the recall to cover their butts in case of a fire. I read at one time there was talk of a class action suit. Does anyone know any more about this ?

So sorry about your bad refer but it is 10 years old. How many refrigerator makers either domestic or RV would replace a leaking unit that is 10 years old??

Have you checked Ebay for replacement units?? It is a tough job but can
be a DIY if you are inclined. Don't know your model but looks like a little less
than $600 for a rebuilt cooling unit.

Dometic RV RM2652 Cooling Unit Amish Built $425 After $100 Rebate | eBay

It says something about a $100 rebate so price could be under $500.

Good luck!

Dometic recall

I understand what you are saying, but an RV refrigerator doesn't run 24/7/365. I bought from the original owner who took it out on weekends about 10 times/year. I would think it would last 10 years or more. My beef is the recall shows Dometic knows there is a problem and they are not addressing it.
