Your propane is to heat the ammonia. When on 120v you have an electric heater.

Thanks for the additional information. The fridge works fine on 120, 22 and gas. They replaced all the circuit boards and checked the converter, at my insistence based on your recommendations. It checked out fine. Domestic said that failure is internal and can't be fixed. As I have extended warranty they're replacing the refrigerator. It'll be interesting if that still doesn't fix it. Maybe they didn't check the converter. 😐 fingers crossed it will. Thanks all. I'll keep you posted.

Glad to here they are giving you a new fridge. When we had our Cardinal and had error codes on the display I talked to a tech at camper clinic in buda Texas that enlighten me as possible troubleshooting methods and it really helped. Hope it all turns out for you.

Well, I have a brand new fridge in the 5er. Problem is...it doesn't work!! I did for about 5 days reaching a cool 41 degrees. When I got ready to take it out for the first time, it was reading 60. The freezer seems to work fine. I contacted Dometic and the stated it was likely a blocked cooler that can only be fixed by replacing the cooler or the fridge. Frustrating!! I tried on electric and gas with same results. It goes in the shop, again, today.

Sg6923,
During the summer ours would get up to 60 deg with the temp in the 90s outside. Our freezer was down to 5 deg. Check your gasket on the fridge door. Make sure it is clean and the mating surfaces are also clean with no shipping tape or other things in the way. When you close the door it should suck it in. If you freezer is working normally, it may be your door gasket not sealing or even the thermocouple.

I didn't check the freezer temp but the food remained frozen. Dometic said was a blocked cooler. The door seems to be well sealed. I think I said when it was first put in it worked fine. Camped last weekend and it didn't budge off 60. I talked briefly with mechanic yesterday. He said the old fridge had a circulating fan and the new one didn't. He put it on and we'll see today if it worked. Thanks for your comments!

Good luck. I hatted summers with ours. It was so hard keeping it cool during the day then recover at night. Hopefully they will get her going again for you.

Success. The bird is back in the best with a nice cold fridge; a cool 36 degrees. Mechanic said the old fridge had a circulation fan and the new one didn't have it. Surprised they didn't notice that when installing the new one. Nevertheless, I'm a happy camper. Had the brakes replaced and bearings packed (ouch!) that needed to be done. Now ready to roll on down the road. Happy Camping!!
