Are any of you folks with a all electric 2007 MADP, which has a Dometic refrigerator, having any problems? Our freezer keeps freezing up and the refrigerator is staying in the 40's. It is a piece of junk.

John,

Just got it Friday. So far, so good for us - freezer is OK and refer temp is 32.

Do you have fans installed in the upper exhaust area? Jetsmania did not and he had temp problems. He had fans installed and his problem is fixed. Mine came with fans already installed. Check and let us know.

Lane, We did not have any fans when we got the coach and had one installed in the lower outside space. Part of the problem is when it is a sunny day even with the awning out is when I have problems. It can't keep up when it is warm and sunny outside.

John,
Assuming all other components are okay, fans in the chimney is the answer. I had to install a fan in my coach and it is a smaller refer than yours is. Everything I have read on several forums points to fans, high in the chimney.

John, I think the answer is the fans should be in the upper exhaust area.

John, if you do have fans installed check the upper vent to see if enough air flow is coming out of upper vent. You did not say if you have refer in slide but some of them had to have a baffel to deflect the hot air out of upper vent.
Same problems with Norcolds also last summer if fans do not work or never installed these problems will arise. Some people have installed 12v fans in lower vent opening also to get heat out of there.

What I do not understand is why you are being require to add any additional parts to a 2007 Newmar? I have a Dometic that I understand is under recall but I have not received the letter. Model # and Serial # must match the list on the recall. But my dometic is an electric/gas. But if it is under warranty and the design is lacking then Newmar should be the one adding the parts or at least paying for the new design and additional parts.

Hi Workingnoway,
You are correct. John should understand, from Newmar, if fans should be helping evacuate the heat from the rear of his refer. Some coaches:
<UL TYPE=SQUARE>
<LI>were built without fans (a mfg mistake)
<LI>fans were installed but do not work
<LI>fans were installed but do not work correctly[/list]
All the above mentioned scenarios are warranty related. I don't read any of the posts to indicate Lane should be installing fans at his expense. From past experience, the posts are mentioning fans have been a large problem. I know the single fan I installed at the roof vent for the refer has helped quite a bit.

I am confused. Hoosier1 said he has an ALL ELECTRIC coach w/ Dometic refer? Does Dometic make an all electric refer? Don't Newmar "all electric" coaches come with "residential 120v only" refers?

The Mountain Aire can not be had with a true residential frig. The Dometic they use however is electric only, no propane.

He can have it checked at Newmar factory he lives in IN. and it is under warranty.
We are only giving some ideas until he can get to factory or dealer. He maybe in Florida.

I will be at the factory the middle of May to have the refrigerator looked at as well as other things. Thanks for all the help and concern.
