How to Remove Control Panel From Dometic Refer

Our 20 year old control panel on our Dometic is balky at times.

It many times will not react to its buttons being pushed.

I would like to remove the panel from the refer door to see what the problem is, but can find no instructions on safely doing that.

Has anyone successfully removed the Control Panel from a Dometic cabinet front?

If so, how did you do it?

Shiggs68 thank you. I have that manual and reviewed the tests used at the PCB.

However, its the temp setting buttons themselves that do not make routine contact for temp selection. All buttons work. But only when they feel like responding.

It has been a while since I have removed the elbow board (control panel). But as I remember, it just snaps into the front with four small plastic snaps. A small screwdriver and carefully pry it out should remove it. A new board can be ordered.

Thank you, a new one on hand would decrease my removal anxiety.

I found new and used on Ebay.

One of the photos show where the clips are located.

It appears there are six of them holding the eyebrow board.

Has not been that long since I pulled mine.. Just pull it off, snaps on and off easily.. Opening the top door may make it easier to get a thumb on the thing and pull it off.
