Dometic fridge....complete failure!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

We are currently in France, staying in our Bailey Valencia 2013. The caravan has been sited here for nearly a year. We’ve been here for 6 weeks this trip, without many issues. .....except bloody mice! 

However, I noticed a puddle on the floor yesterday. First thought was hubby has overdone the pot washing! Got up this morning, kitchen floor soaked! My Dometic fridge has just stopped working! Won’t work on electric, battery, nor gas.  

 

I have checked the fuse, checked the plug socket under the cooker. No idea what to do next, except maybe buy a fridge to go in the awning!

 

Any ideas folks? 

 

TIA,

 

julie

Remove the lower outside vent, where its nice and warm for furry guests, and check there for chewed wires.

If you checked the plug socket under the cooker did you actually check the fuse in the plug itself?

Yes, checked the fuse in the plug, tried a new one, still no go!

The fact that the fridge isn't working on all systems suggests that the problem is a failure of the 12v supply (or earth connection) to the fridge control board. The fridge needs a constant 12v supply to operate all functions.

Check the fuses on your 12v distribution board and the 12v wiring to the fridge itself (a seperate supply to the main 12v cooling element feed). There will also probably be a fuse actually mounted on the internal fridge control PCB.
