Dometic Refrigerator Maintenance

How many folks perform the annual maintenance listed in the owners manual? It is required (as stated in item 5 of the warranty) in order to keep the warranty in force. 🤭

I do my own when I do the “Annual”. I probably exceed the requirements for warranty by a mile or two.

Good luck with Dometic warranty. I just maintain my equipment as needed and don't get wrapped around the axle over warranty. I am able to make my own appliance and RV repairs when required, included replacing what is broken or defective.

There is annual maintenance??
Guess I should read about it.
If it involves more than keeping it clean inside and out (coils, burner, etc). I have failed in my duty.

I clean out underneath and burner area, multiple times per year. Dealer does it and checks flame once a year.

The warranty requires the "Preventive Maintenance" to be performed at a Dometic Authorized Service Center/Dealer at owners expense, "starting at the anniversary of his date of purchase." It's a two year warranty. So you'd only really do this once, because by the time you got to the second anniversary, the warranty would be expired.

I've never bothered. As Splitshaft says, I don't get wrapped around the axle on warranties.
