If that thermostat switch isnít tight against that last fin, then your losing heat transfer and the switch wonít ďcloseĒ. Iím starting to think the fans not running is the main issue.

There's a chasm of difference between "We couldn't find anything wrong with the fridge because it always reached the correct temperatures for us," and "we couldn't get the fridge down to temperature but couldn't find what was causing it."

You don't get paid for failing to do the job you were tasked to do.

Yes, I would call the fridge manufacturer, stat.

Switched it over to propane within 5 minutes the condenser fans came on and the inside temp dropped to 48. I think iím getting somewhere. Still hasnít been a full 24 hours. Iím thinking it will eventually pull down but am afraid it wonít catch up once we load it and have the doors open while we do. Will let you know tomorrow.

So it’s been over 24 hours and it’s at 40. Granted that’s better than 50. In my last RV if set at maximum it would come down to 33, but it was a Dometic brand. It’s level, evap and condenser fans are all working. Why would they say it “worked” for them? We are taking a cooler with us on Monday for our couple day camping trip. If it continues to be an issue not sure who to call. Norcold, or Keystone.

It sounds like your getting it figured out. Depending on date of purchase will determine who you should contact. in the first year of ownership the trailer manufacturer will "administer" the warranty process, after that the component maker needs to be dealt with directly.

Just a thought, if the refer is in a DARK EXTERIOR colored slide its going to have a hard time in the hot Arizona sun doing much better than 40 I think. Hope I'm wrong

With what you've said I would be looking at the door seal now for the last 10 degrees.

Got to the campground all set up fridge nice and cold. All of s sudden it’s working after starting it last Friday, now Monday. Can’t believe it takes that many days for an empty fridge to start cooling. Maybe should have bought the 3121 with the standard compressor type fridge and an inverter.

Clearly your unit is still problematic. My 2019, with stock nothing-special Dometic, cools down in a matter of a few hours.

Another day and still at temp. Maybe this big babies do take a couple days to cool down. Probably why dealer said it’s working fine. Guess i’ll wait and see.

Good deal!! How often and for how long the doors are open will have a profound effect of temp recovery.

Only open long enough when stocking or taking an item out, but it’s keeping up. Just can’t figure out what it took so long to finally cool down

I heard its important for the camper to be level.

I've seen where RV fridge have harder time cooling than a domestic home residential type. We have the latter and no issues. In fact when we evacuated for the hurricane a year and half ago, I put ice in the freezer and drove a 7.5hr trip which took more like 12/13. Ice in freezer was still 95% ice when we arrived. And I don't run the generator while we were driving.

I seen a video on YouTube in which a guy had a RV fridge issue similar to yours. The one he had, was the larger type with two removable vents on the side of the RV where the fridge resides. There was a airflow issue that was basically a factory defect. Remove those side covers and inspect. There should be maybe a fan back there and those vents need to allow airflow. Maybe someone else can be more detail on this.



Our front AC will freeze up if it's hot and humid outside (South Florida) and we are in and out of the RV alot. The rear AC which is in the garage never freezes up...no matter big we leave the garage/living mid-door open or not. Kinda odd
