What seems to be the problem with the fridge? Does it work OK on 120V and not gas, or just not work at all?

Thanks for your answer. Yes it works on LP and I checked the stat with a ohm meter and it is open, so I jumped the terminals and it works fine, so the electric thermostat is bad.

Lewster I was looking at this and I have a similar problem. I did not see any answer to the original. Where can I get a thermostat for the Dometic refer. My problem appears to be in the LP side. No matter where I have it set the flame does not change and it freezes in the refer portion. Any help would be appreciated.

Ron,

Sounds like your t/stat is frozen closed and is not letting the LP burner cycle as needed.....thus running wide open. I don't believe that Dometic supports the RM-60 any longer with service parts. You might try Out-of-doors mart (a forum member) or google RM-60 parts or old Dometic parts and see what comes up.

Thanks very much I did just one problem which maybe the whole problem. The dial was broken internaly thus when I though I had it on 2 or 3 it was probably set much higher. I managed to use the dial for the electric and turn it down. I will keep an eye on it. I will see if I can get a new dial through Out of Doors mart or maybe there is a bone yard some where.

Ronsgto: I was able to find a tstat at:
PPL's RV Parts Superstore
10777 Southwest Freeway (Hwy 59 South)
Houston, Tx 77074-9829
1-800-755-4775
Mine was the electric tstat, I believe it cost me around 35.00 and they have both gas and electric, since they are located in Houston I don't know if they are back in operation after the hurricane, give it a try, also they have a catalog on the web, go thru Goggle you will see it there. Good luck, if they don't have it, I have to look but I think I have another supplier on my favorites.

Try Snyders Refridgeration, somewhere in PA. Also there are a couple of places in Elkhart that have a lot of new old stock parts. I don't recall specific contact info, but I know it has been previously mentioned in posts. You should find Snyders on the internet. But hopfully a forums member has the contacts and will post it to this thread.
