No...that is one of the problems. The fuse is 5mm x20mm or roughly 3/16x3/4 not the size in the part number.. i dont think I can jam a 1/4 x 1 1/4 into that holder lol. When the fuse blew I went to radioshack and grabbed 125:v but now am wondering if they should have been 250v. Pulled the old and tossed it like a dumbass without looking.at it for the volt rating
Dometic is making or having these DRM fridges made in China and its very evident the support people are lost regarding them. I spent an hour at an RV dealer parts counter while the manager made phone calls to his distributors and Dometic trying to get the correct part number for the AC element. Finally had success, or so we thought and ordered one......its wrong.
Later I pulled the bad one and then received a response to my email to Dometic with the correct part number and a pdf of the parts breakdowns which are not on Dometics website like all their other fridges. No one has the AC element in stock. I finally found a couple in Oregon and I'm in PA. Normally a Dometic element is $30, these will cost you almost double with shipping.
Dometic calls this the "Renaissance Series". Perhaps it should be called the cheap series or the Pita series. I can see me replacing this entire fridge in the future. When I look at the cooling unit compared to my last Atwood fridge in my 2013 that we sold, this thing screams cheap loudly. It will probably last a few days longer than the warranty and then implode.
