We recently purchased a 2010 Roo with a Dometic fridge. Took it out for the first time last Friday, fired up the fridge on A/C at about 10 PM and by 6 AM on Saturday there did not seem to be a noticeable change in temperature. Is it possible that it needs even more time? Not knowing what the issue could be, I popped off the outside vent and took a look inside. The vertical tube coming out of the large cylinder (ammonia tank maybe?) had about an 1/8" of ice on the outside of it. Doesn't seem to be a good thing to see ice on the outside of the fridge so I shut it down and unplugged the power cable since the melting ice would drip on it and the wiring in the back. Anyone have any ideas?
Camper was level (I read the instructions).
I haven't checked out the model/serial number against the recall yet but will do that tonight. The Roo is currently at the dealer until they can look at it (up to 5 days)
After reading numerous posts on here about the Dometic fridge it is possible that I did not fire it up long enough. Though, the glacier on the back of the fridge is a red flag for me...
