We replaced the thermoster and the boiler is getting hot
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 4 years ago

So normally when you get no cooling on BOTH LP and AC it is a problem with the thermistor or cooling unit, I just see you responded back and replaced that.

So this sounds like the cooling unit. A cooling unit can become blocked or rupture. FOR a rupture you might smell ammonia or see a yellowish powder on the back of the fridge.

FOR a blockage you may not have any symptoms at all but NO cooling on BOTH LP and AC power. Normally when it becomes blocked it needs to be replaced. You can get a rubber mallet and try taping on the absorber coils on the back of the fridge, SOMETIMES that works but most times the cooling unit has to be replaced.

Understand if this is not good news for you but it is looking like the cooling unit if you replaced that thermistor.

IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
