RE: Dometic reefer check light

Old post but thought i would update. Dinosaur said they did not make a replacement board for this unit and yep it's an oddball when trying to reference parts. Remember this a was a new fridge in 2020. The gentleman at Dinosaur did suggest plugging the reefer directly into A/C to rule out a wonky converter supplying choppy DC. Also it has shut off on DC and AC. I took it over to my property back in Dec to do some winterized camping for one night. Sometime the next day while plugged in it tripped off. If it comes down to it I will swap the whole thing out for a Norcold. Any places out there have reasonable prices for a new/rebuilt fridge?

RE: Dometic reefer check light

Yes it's a Sunset Park, Sun Lite 16BH with no slides. At one time during the trip I wondered if there was a problem with the propane tank as it faulted out and I discovered the other tank was empty. It's a bigger hassle around here to to get a tank filled than just pay to swap it out. Spark is good. battery voltage is good on my Tri-Metric and checked it at the board yesterday. Interesting as this is the longest it has ran and the temps outside have been upper 90's.

Dometic reefer check light

I have a Dometic DM2652RBX 2 way fridge in a small 16'camper bought new in spring of 2020. Right before a trip leading up to Memorial Day I kicked the fridge on a couple days ahead of time before my trip Maybe a day or two later I noticed it had kicked off. This fridge has worked fine since purchased and had been used several times this spring. I reset it, it lit off and thought hmmm that's odd. I checked my propane bottles and all ok there. A day later it kicks off again. I wasn't going to cancel the trip so had to reset it sometimes in an hours time. I took a cooler along and used the reefer for stuff that could get in the 50's and not make me sick. A couple weeks and I was back home frustrated. I turned it on in this heat wave and has worked for over 48 hours. What I know:A It always relights.B It's not a movement problem as it has kicked off while at camp.C The flame looks excellent. D I tugged around on wiring while watching the flame so nothing loose. I asked a place that sells units and parts but they just said the CHECK light only applies to failed to light on propane. They suggested possible low DC to the backside of the PC board and that the unit was likely farmed out to a manufacturer in Japan or Germany if it has no outside frame (which it doesn't) One clue I do have is a week or two before lighting the fridge for that trip I found my deep cycle batteries terminal corroded. I turned off the master switch and when I hooked it back up my propane detector was switching on and off and I'm think the fridge was turning on and off too. I then realized even though it was an overcast day I neglected to pull my solar panel fuse while cleaning the battery terminals. I'm tempted to replace the lower board but hate to spend money on a board only to still have the problem.
