VinceU: Thanks for more thoughts anything helps
*1 - Always close the left side flap
*2 - hope this is happening
*3 - Circuit Board???? Hmm ???
*4 - defrosted 1-2 wks went all last summer from April - Nov and didn't do this and no problems with unit???
*5 - two fans on upper unit in back blowing on unit.
got up three days ago and temp was 36 well was long after that went to 54 and yep you got it been there ever since <;-( unit does not have much in it, we have set up a small unit out side in the 100 degree heat and its keeping everything cold. sounds like a Long Trip to Dealer again.

If I was a betting guy and had the choice of what to renew, I'd pick the PCB which is falsely reading the box is down to temp. That's probably a couple hundred or less. Cooling unit would come next like Patrickdana in this same thread, but that's a couple of thousand (maybe 3500). Is this under warranty? The box retails for 7K, worth a trip to the dealer! Its good to troubleshoot like you have, a Dometic rep would know much better what to change.

Just had to get my Dometic cooling unit on the back of fridge replaced. Coils were so corroded ammonia could not circulate even after having it flushed 3 times. Price wasn't bad for just the coil unit on the back compared to a new fridge. I always make sure the motorhome is level as this is an important part for the fridge to work better. Need to say I wasn't impressed seeing just bought Motorhome 6 months ago and it is a 2011.
