Thermal "fuse" is to be replaced.
Thermal protection may be manual reset or auto reset.
A defective thermal protection device that will not reset is defective and in need of replacing.

These often have a recall kit installed that has a thermal fuse in the burner area....when the burner overheats the thermal fuse shuts the hole thing down to prevent fire, the ammonia smell is probably from the cooling unit. check under your burner, to see if you see a bright yellow powder or liquid if you do, your cooling unit is for sure bad and is dangerous to run. The thermal fuse shuts the fridge down completely and can be reset by pushing in the button in the middle.

Dometic Refrigerator Model RM 2820 Stopped working purchased 5-4-2004 . Tom Collins


Hi Tom,

If your fridge quit working altogether, check your DC fuses in the fuse box, as well as the back of the fridge under the black plastic cover (3 amp). Though the fridge uses LP and 120vac to cool, it is controlled by 12 volts.

Dometic rm2652 frige just stopped working, gas nor


Check 12V supply and fuses on lower board. If display functions okay, then look for yellow residue on back of refrigerator near burner. If yes, then cooling unit has leaked and needs to be replaced. See if recall kit has been installed, and check for 12V at both sides of limit switch. If no power on either side, then thermal link has blown, and need to be replaced, If 12V on one side, but not the other, than limit is tripped, and needs to be reset, by pushing button, or if not resetting, then replace, Check for obstructions to the bottom and top vent to make sure they are not blocked, On models with top side vent, check cooling fan for proper operation.

Dometic RM2862 Can you reset the thermo fuse? Current going to it but nothing going out and wouldn't this cause the unit not to work at all?


It probablby has a timer in it. You can reset the timer by turning it clockwise, and the compressor would come on again. It is usualy located under the concoles where the setting button is located. Look for a small hole under that console. If a thermal breaker is making the compressor cut off, it is usually located on the compressor where all the wiring are going in, along with the starting capacitor. Usually if the compressor is overheating and making the thermal breaker go off, there is a problem with the compressor, or it is low on refrigerant. A low refrigerant will make a compressor overheat. Furthermore if the compressor has been being overload by low refrigerant, it will be damaged sooner or later, by overheating the elecmotor inside and causing a short. If resetting the timer don't work and it is indeed the thermal breaker, unplug the machine and get it service, which I hope the compressor is still okay.

I have the same fridge in a 2009 Heartland Cyclone 3950. Just recently had the same problem. Is your fridge in a slideout? If so, in order to vent out the wall (as opposed to a fridge NOT in a slideout, they vent through the roof, and sometimes don't have fans) - the fan must come on to assist with hot air movement. If you have not heard the fan come on, go outside and check in the access panels.

On mine, the fan is mounted inside, just under the top opening. The thermal switch that operates the fan is mounted to the fins at the top. After verifying I had power, I bypassed the thermal switch and connected the wires together - the fan runs 24/7 now (until I install my new switch) and its cooling like new! smile.gif For the DM2852 model fridge, the Dometic part number is: 3104133.016

I called Dometic myself and got the part number in order for the "authorized service center" to order it - he had no parts breakdown for this section of my fridge. The fridge has a 3 year warranty, so I let the service center order the part for me - free of charge - otherwise I could have paid for it straight from Dometic.

Dometic RM2852 will not turn on


The dometic recall requires the installation of a thermal fuse from the DC terminal block to the igniter,  Originally it was a solid wire connection, and the recall replaced this wire with a thermal fuse imbedded.  On my unit the installer placed the fused wire too close to the burner sheet metal and, viola, the fuse blew (being thermal).  Camping World found the problem in 5 minutes and repaired it in another 10 minutes. $107.00.
