I have done a lot of RV refrigerator work and must agree with Scott. A new cooling unit will cost about 1/2 to price of a new refrigerator and if you have an RV shop do the work, the total cost will be between 2/3 & 3/4 the price of a new refrigerator. And if you do that, you may very well have some other problem crop up in the near future as it will still be an old refrigerator. When mind did that at 11 years old, I just put in a new refrigerator.
i have a dometic designer series model rm2607 and it seems to have a amonia smell coming from it. Does this mean i have to replace the unit or can ir be fixed
Here is a link to a place that many people have used for their fridge repairs or replacement. The owner's name is David Force and he will take the time to talk with you on the phone. You may or may not be able to replace just the cooling parts on the back of the fridge. http://rvcoolingunit.com/Default.aspx
I replaced a cooling unit on an older TT I had several years ago. I found a place in Canada that had the cooling unit for about half the cost and had it shipped to me. It really isn't that big of a deal to replace if you have any sort of mechanical inclination!
