We had used our 1964
Dometic 2-way fridge on LP with success until our weekend trip a few weeks ago when it got quite warm inside. At the time, close to the end of the trip, I did not switch over to electric and instead we just limped the short trip home. I attributed its lack of cooling at the time to the extremely hot outside temps.
I fired it up again last night getting ready for a mid-week trek. This morning, it was 60 degrees inside. Freezer did show some signs of life- but condensation was still wet and not frozen.
I switched over to electric. Things are getting cold now.
1) Am I correct that the fridge not working on LP in this situation is likely not attributed to a clogged chimney stack? Does the chimney not need to be clear for the fridge to work on electric as well?
2) My first hunch is that I have a faulty LP thermostat. I had replaced the electric thermostat when I got the unit working a few years ago, but did nothing to the gas thermostat. Am I thinking in the right vein?
3) Does anyone know the part # for the LP-side thermostat for a unit this old?
Thanks! Looks like we will have a cold fridge this week running on electric. Hoping to get the LP working again soon as well. Looking forward to any words of advice.
