Glad to hear there's an easy temporary solution. Odds are that someone else will have the same problem and now lots of people on the forum know the solution.

Good thing you found a solution. Given the need to use an ice box you might have had to change your trailer name to Almost Past Tents

Interesting that the manual in that link shows the temp sensor over on the burner side of the 8XXX fridge family. Isn't moving it to that side one of the proposed Dometic solutions to the poor cooling issue?

RV tech

The tech that I mentioned is Dan Sutton at 970-764-8544. He is temporarily out of business due to wife's surgery. I wasn't able to find his card but I called the RV park we use and described the business, they had his name and current business. Hope he is back in business soon.

We'll get a new door switch/etc once we get back to Texas.
I've been accused of being a cheerleader for the brand. Can't help it, won't apologize.

But, when was the last time you heard/read of an RV manufacturer that was willing to tear into an appliance (that they didn't manufacture) to find a solution?

Sorry Robert you have/had problems, truly. But at least ETI gave you a solution you can live with until you get home and have the refrigerator fixed under warranty.

Cool!

So I guess Robert will never know the answer to one of life's riddles......does the light really go out when you shut the refrigerator door?...

Au Contraire Jim! See post #31.

Haven't figured out the meaning of life yet, but the fridge light thing? Got that one licked.

Yeah, That's what Schrodinger needed to watch his cat.
But then, would there be an effect on the cat only if the phone was on, or.....
