I have a RV Dometic...
I have a RV Dometic Refrigerator RM2852 Product no. 921 14 40-02. When I turn on the unit it will start up and run for 3 to 5 minutes then the High Limit Switch will trip out. When I reset the High Limit Switch and turn the unit back on it again will run for another 3-5 minutes and trip out again.
Can you help me please?
Thank You

Either the limit switch is faulty or the stack temp is too high due to the cooling unit beginning to fail. Do you see any yellowish debris around the base of the burner? And are you running this on LP or AC mode? Do you notice any difference in the two? Get back to me and I can suggest some testing on this and supply a Service Manual for you. All follow ups are included in our fee.

No yellowish debris around the base. Same results on Lp or AC mode
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 6 years ago

It might be a faulty limit switch. They are free and you can easily change it out. Most shops have them around.

I have tried the local RV shops, they do not know what I am talking about and just want to sell me a new refrigerator for $1500. Can you please tell me where I can get one?
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 6 years ago

That is a bunch of crap........they install these recall kits for Dometic all the time. They always have some left over. Where are you located?
