Also, where did you find the exploded view? There is not one in the owners manual. Their website??

raycyn778,
The left freezer door does not seal at the top. We have a big block of ice there. I sent John Armstrong a picture and he told me they will fix it when we bring it in to Elkhart.

Okay, this may be a really dumb post on why the fridge doesn't dispence water....but do you have it turned on? I noticed when winterizing mine that unless you have the fridge turned on you won't get water. You would think that water pressure would flow regardless of fridge power but this is not the case on my 2012.....

I was trying to flow antifreeze through mine and got nothing even though the pump was powered and water was flowing everywhere else. Started swearing and trying to think troubleshooting steps and the wife asked if the fridge was turned on. I'm really glad I bit my tongue and powered it before saying what I was thinking cause she was right....

I think that VunceU has it right, that it is an electrical issue, first the ice/water dispensors do not work and then the automatic ignition-on fridge door locks do not work either. And the lower left door does not lock even when the doors are locked manually. a slight pull and it opens right up. we had a quart of milk fly out onto the floor our last time out on the road. How do you like yours? how long have you had it and do you have any issues with it??

Dometic woes......
Ray
Yes the exploded view are on the Dometic site under consumer tools, Service parts. Most parts are shown except major assemblys. This includes solonoids, gaskets, fasteners etc.
Door locking is a function of allignment. The center latch is the first device to attempt to straighten to get all pins to catch. My right freezer door refused to latch at times account of leveling. I ended up carefully diassembling the pin from the door corner. Added a spacer to the back to make just slightly longer and boom it worked! All doors now latch even in "airing position".
My unit is a 2012 378 and we enjoy it. This being my fourth motorhome, trust me they all had similar problems including internal water leaks behind walls and worse. With the help of this site will continue to improve it.

we keep our fridge at 34 degrees, sitting on #4. Just where I want it, it does go up to 37 when going through it's auto defrost routine. The cooling fans in the back of the refer are a bit loud when your standing by it outside, never hear it in the coach.

For the problem of no water, did you turn on the water supply, a lift valve in the outside compartment in the back back of the refer.

We had the same problem and the valve is not completely opened. We have this refrig and were on our 3rd ice maker we also have a new main board. We have a 2011 Georgetown. Hope this helps. Were beginning to think we have a lemon.

Hi and thanks for the post...the valve was completely open as when I took off the line from the fridge, the water shot out about 20'. Dealer called yesterday and said they are installing a new board and getting a wiring diagram for the ignition lock as they had never heard of that feature. I had to show the service manager the fridge manual to prove it.Are you having problems with the ice maker in the fridge or the door dispensor? what other problems have you had? Mine has been in the shop for over 4 weeks now..hopw to get it back this week..

Hoping to travel soon

The first thing to go was the main board. They had to reorder three times because it was the wrong board. We just bought it and that was a second day. Then the ice maker went. It will make ice then spit out water. Were on our third ice maker. We've had the RV 7 months. This was brand new Aug 2011. We've had numerous other problems with it too. AC, Stove, Steps, etc. We to have new motor installed on steps but the motor was not good. QC is an issue and inferior parts being used.

Wow, that is depressing to hear....Mine was brand new in Nov. 2011 but is considered a 2012 for some reason. The real 2012's have front end changes and more head room inside but are basically the same. since my ice maker never worked I don't know what to expect. Do you have a 378 and does your fridge have the ice and water dispensor on the door?
