Disregard. The light does go out. Recorded a video on my phone to confirm it. Some forums suggest the system will alarm if the light stays on. Bummer. Next idea.

Second thought ... you probably don't want to jeopardize your warranty by trying this. It's good to know for testing so I'll leave it posted.


If you would like a simple wiring change to 'test', try this. If nothing else it checks the AES sequencing. You will have no DC heater for the frig. It will search AC and Propane only. This eliminates the DC high current (heater) sensing from throwing a fault (beep) for whatever reason.

IF it works I'll explain what I'm thinking. It may ... but that refrigerator has a mind of it's own.

You are pulling 12 vdc from the 'heater' input and just wiring nutting, or twisting, it so the 12 vdc AES control circuit still has power. On my frig the 2 wires are held under the 'heater' lug, you are simply removing them and keeping the contact between the 2 only.

This is from an RML8555 (single door) so yours might look different.

One guy said his Dometic was beeping every couple of minutes and he jiggled the light switch and the light cover, and it stopped. Doubt that will work but another thing to try. Dometic should be able to tell you how to disconnect the beeper -- if you can ever get them. Bad that it is not in the manual.

Thanks all. We shut it off for the night and have some items in an ice chest. Tried the jiggling of the light switch but the light works normally and does shut off when the door closes. I read that tip too.

A forum member gave me a referal to a guy who does mobile rv service. I'm going to give him a call tomorrow and see what he says. If no resolution we will just use the ice chest for the rest of the trip. I refuse to waste days at a service center or have this spoil our trip.

I wonder if it is the rain and maybe humidity. We have had trouble with electronic items including ones with beepers during periods of great rain and humidity.

per photo on .pdf page34 the beeper is soldered into the AES circuit board

per table on .pdf page56 there are 7 things that cause audible alarm. First six items also have LED fault light and something flashing. Only the door is just audible alarm

Robert,
You can remove the control panel by opening the door and there are 2 screws on the top part, removing will allow the panel to slide out. You can unattached the wires in the rear via 2 lock tabs on the wire run. Make sure the storage lock is not engaged on the lock portion inside the refer so that the locking lever will operate. Also there is a little tab on the door portion of the lock that allows it to click when opening and closing, make sure that is in operation.

Robert, if you are going to be near Cortez, CO, I have a card for a good RV mobile technician. He impressed me and I don't impress easily. Even the mobile shop is impressive. I can find the card I Believe if that would help. Otherwise I would start looking for a wire to cut.

We knew about the storage lock and the latch lock. It isn't that. As for pulling the panel I wouldn't know which wires to pull once it was open.
