No fans visible. Refrigerator is not in a slide.

Have you learned anything more about your refrigerator? Out 1350 does the same thing.

Has your 1350 refrigerator been repaired. Have you discovered the problem. Mine does the same after about 9 months of proper operation.

Do you know what model residential refrigerator will fit in place of the Dometic 1350?

Well our 1350 has the same problem, one day its 50 degrees and the next day its 36 it doesn't matter if its 70 or 90 out side. I have checked mine and we have two fans on the top vent out side, I have checked the reset button on the unit also. Our unit is so level its not funny. I have called to shop and they said "bring it in at the end of the month" REALLY, Hope some one finds a answer to this problem and soon.

Do you hear the fans running sometimes? They are noisy so you should be hearing them cycle on and off.

Update on my RM1350. Did a bypass test (24 hours with power directly applied to heating elements). Temp did not go below 40 with outside temp at 50. Measured the resistance of the heating elements (34 ohms). Measured current draw of heating elements (3.48 amps). Took unit to warranty repair facility where my tests were repeated. Results is defective cooling unit. Replacement unit on order. Will update after new cooling unit is installed.

My DM2652 Fridge had a defective cooling unit also. When they emptied the coolant out of the cooler it was black..was suppose to be yellow. Not a happy camper seeing we just bought the 2010 Sunseeker this past April.
