2014 Dometic 2 compartment freezer/refrigerator. Wont cool below 50 degrees either AC or LP. I f I disconnect the thermistor from the control board it should go into max cooling mode, no?

I do not know but move the clip holding it as far up the fin as you can. Adding a fan inside may help as well.. I did It helps two ways

one it circulates the air so the COLD is more even
Two.. Fins don't frost up as bad with a good set of Fridge fans in there
(There is a firm or 2 that make fans specificlly to mount on dometic Absorption cooling units)

Also,, Clean the beast.. Open the outside access panel and the top panel (If in a slide out) or roof cover (If not) using an air compressor and fairly low pressure setting on the regulator BLOW down through the heat exchanger Fins (Looks a bit like a car radiator) blow STRAIGHT down (Be careful on that) see if a bunch of "Crud" gets blown out the bottom (NOTE TURN OFF FIRST Some of that crud.. burns)


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

I'll try the blowing out although it looks pretty clean. Also, it's empty so a fan won't do much. I thought maybe an aftermarket thermistor might do the trick?
