Please forgive me for asking to see the backup references on "Dometic refrigerators" as well. Seems to me it was a reasonable request for the related article(s), so all Forest River owners who have one of those in their RV, can be better informed.

After all kind sir, that is one of the major benifits of this forum, wouldn't you agree!

Did you really need to be nasty.

Here is a hint, they ain't recalling them because they don't cool well enough.

Is that "substantial" enough for you?
This recall wasn't due to "exploding"
Refrigerators.

It had to do with a shield.

The newer Dometic units have the shield and heat activated kill switch installed...

Do I get this right, these recalls cover fridges manufactured before 2006.

Even if the fridges were manufactured 2006 or before, they could have still been put in units several years since if they were in stock at the RV manufacturer. The best thing to do is to check the model numbers.

Bet those engineers who redesigned the unit with a shield and heat activated kill switch, don't live under a rock, like some of us!

OK update due to my poor vision I went back out to check mine out this time armed with my camera took several pictures and the model # is different than what I read and it has the shield kit on it (whew) that made me happy but it still does nothing for the refrigerator having the defect just makes it safer? I guess we will deal with that if and when it happens......

Funny enough, mine is on the affected list but I'm really surprised because the recall is from 2008 for models manufactured pre-2007 and I own a 2014 trailer. Perhaps the 'recall kit' has already been installed on mine because on the page that tells me my model/serial number is included in the recall, there is also a message that reads:

PLEASE NOTE: This website only confirms whether or not the designated refrigerator is on the recall; it does not determine whether or not the recall kit has already been installed on the refrigerator.

I wish there was a way to know that before going through the trouble of taking it in to get looked at. I'll try to Google that and find out...
