I've merged this thread started by foboco with an original on the topic. Too many questions are being asked (not always answered) that were addressed in this original thread started by Lewster. Included in this overall thread are references to the serial number range covered as well as a link how to find which RV dealer in your area is a Dometic Service Center. I did mine 5 miles from home very easily rather than travel a longer distance to an Airstream dealer. They didn't even pull it into a service stall but it did take the better part of an hour.

See post 8. They'll cover you taking it to a dealer or possibly a service call -- but only if you can establish the unit cannot be moved. May I assume the recent posts involved this? It's a little foggy.

BTW -- I did my recall back in the summer. I only got the recall letter in November. Sorry, already in storage for the winter! A service center will take you any ol' way if you have your unit serial number.

Great info

Thanks Motoman and ROBERTSUNRUS. Great pictures, they tell the story and mine looks like it has NOT been done. It appears that maybe the factory started adding the kit sometime between March 2006 and September 2006, just a guess...

I got mine fixed this summer. It took some perseverance (and being somewhat prickly), but Dometic paid for the service call for two guys to come out and do the fix.

We have the RM 2352/53

It does not show on any of the recall lists but it has one heck of a loud fan that cycles on and off with no on off switch..


Has anyone changed out the fan for say two smaller computer type fans or something quieter that it comes with???

Thanks for any ideas.

PM "Lewster"...he has recommended a "Snyder Fan" to replace the original noisy (and inefficient) fan behind our Bambi's frig that is intended to draw warm air away from the frig works... Let him know what year and model you have and he'll know what you need.

Hi, this is what could happen to your trailer if you don't get your refrigerator recall done.

Just kidding!

Hi, the above picture is actually a sunset reflection, not a fire.

In short...

Is it true that this recall only effects Double Door refers ?

From a "higher power" it has been confirmed:

The answer is YES, only double door refers are effected by this recall.

Thanx Lew !
