Default 1986 pt 36 Dometic fridge

Hello, so my fridge about a month back seemed to be working just fine. it now is not cooling at all on the fridge side or the freezer side . the back side of the fridge both on 110v and on Lp still the tubes and stack are hot to the touch. There is gurgling that i can hear also. I ordered a new fan for it, the old one siezed up along time ago. Any thoughts out there?

If the flame is going on the ref and it isn't cooling then its time to repair or replace. Fixing the fan will not make the unit work again.

Our RM3801 frig. had the same problem as you state. The problem could be the thermostat. Do the 110V test that bypasses the circuit board. If the test proves the frig. cools...problem is the thermostat. http://www.wanderlodgeownersgroup.co...ead.php?t=2385
