Or more accurately, the door will not shut. That's by design.

My single door unit had -0- fans, the new one has 2 fans, an upper and lower unit.

Yeah, it appears to be closed when really it isn't latched. That's what had me fooled.

My 2 door fridge Americana has worked for 14 years without problems. Your new 2 door fridges should work well.

Now that Dometic has decided to replace the RML8 series with an RMD8, I have to wonder why this never entered into the issue. Basically it makes me think they figured out the RML8 series was just not a sound design for the North American market................

There's even a flue kit with a Dometic part number.

Essential information to select correct vents - Dometic Flue Kit including T Piece, required for fridges over 100 litres

Interesting reading Charlie, I'm curious about that side vent vent combo with the ceiling exhaust vent, why both?

Exactly, the flue gas/heat is vented out the side and away from the back of the fridge area making it easier to keep cool. I am just in the process of trying to order the vent kit and have it delivered to Canada.

Cheers

So why isn't Dometic requesting that we have the dealer installing these side vents in the new 2 door switch over?
