Refrigerator Problem

Just bought a 1994 Jayco 1260. The Dometic RM2310 refrigerator will not work. It's a 3-way and I've tried every mode. The previous owner said it worked 4 years ago but stopped using it. Thoughts anyone?

No lights on frig. I'm on shore power. Removed the frig plug from the outlet and plugged directly into shore power. Nothing

I suggest you check the DC fuse for the frig in your main panel. Pull the fuse out and replace it even if it looks good. Good luck.

Dometic RM2310 is a cabinet model with manual controls on bottom
Only 12VDC requirement is for the DC Electric Element'
No circuit board etc that would require DC power

120VAC is via the outlet fridge plugs into
Gas Operation is via safety swith/piezo ignitor
12VDC element is via a fused wire directly from battery (15A in-line)

120VAC operation
Turn On/Off Switch to ELEC
Turn Thermostat Switch at least 1/4 turn from OFF postion

Gas Operation
Turn On/Off Switch to GAS
Turn Thermostat Switch at least 1/4 turn from OFF position'
Push/hold Safety button in (next to thermostat knob)
Push Piezo button in hard/repeatedly to ignite flame as observed in 'flame window' ---hold safet button in for an addtional 10 seconds after flame then release safety button

12VDC Operation' (only used to MAINTAIN a COLD fridge...will NOT cool one down)

Turn On/Off Switch to 12V
Turn Thermostat 1/4 turn from OFF position

Thermostat settings
OFF....gas valve operates in bypass...very small flame
electric is OFF

MAX...gas valve operates continuously on HIGH flame
Electric is ON continuusly

Adjust between Off and MAX to control fridge temps

If pluggin the AC Power cord into a KNOWN working outlet does not allow cooling (several hours of operation) then good chance fridge is DEAD
***Provided element gets HOT

Turned the fridge upside down for 36 hours; tinkered with the ignitor and got it working. Plugged it into 120V AC for 12 hours...it was 15 degrees in the fridge and below O in the freezer the next morning. Ran it on gas at setting 1,; fridge was in the 20's. Holy cow. I suppose the next test will be to see how long it will cool before needing another upside down reset.

Are you giving it enough time to cool. It takes 18 to 24 hours to cool the fridge.

Refrigerator not cooling

Does anyone have a remedy to why the refrigerator or freezer is not cooling in my 2017 Ventana LE?

Fridge works well on electric and 12v, but too well on gas. The thermostat doesn't function when on gas. At the warmest setting, the temp was reading 10 degrees this morning and below zero in the ice compartment. You had mentioned a "bypass" feature for gas. How do I check to see if it's working? Thanks.
