Hi!

I’m trying this site - I’ve stumbled across when I searched for parts to my Dometic refrigerator.

I have problems with the PCB and I need to get my hands on a new / used / refurbished one.
I’ve searched high and low, but no result so far, so I hope one you people can point me in a direction?

I have the same problems other describe, the fridge will not go on main, sometimes it does - but just for a short while.
Sometimes it works on gas, but it will cut the gas after a while.

I’ll even buy a used fridge if needed.
This problem is a pain, and always worrying about the fridge when traveling is stressful.

Thanks for all the help.

I’ve included pics of both the PCB and fridge details.

Partnumber is: AES 293 23 44-01

Best Regards,

Have you thought of trying to get the pcb repaired? From the UK if I search using google for “pcb repair” I get a number of companies offering pcb testing and repair services. Might be the only way forward if you can’t find anyone to supply a new pcb.

Good luck!


Regards

Hi,
Yeah – the problem is that the pcb itself is is covered in some kind of white hard plastic – so the component is buried in the white stuff unfortunately.
And that makes it close to impossible to remove any of them.

Suggest the following

Join Camperonline.it (free to join)

Enter FORUMS and then ACCESSORIES

Look through the various threads until you find one about fridges (there are generally one or two on each page)

Look through the thread until you find a post from the user ‘SCUBIDU’

You may need to look through two or three threads, however he posts regularily

Click on his user name which will take you to his profile where there is a contact link.

Send him a full description of your issues together with photos of the board you need plus the full Dometic label with model/serial numbers etc

He makes/repairs control boards for a number of obsolete fridges so may be able to help you.

Let me know how you get on

Hi,

Update;

After 8 month of looking and searching I've found a used board in Poland - I don't speak polish and the seller is not very good in English. But google translate knows Polish and English 

The PCB is scheduled to arrive in Norway this week, so I'm excited to say the least. Fingers crossed.
For people looking I've found it here;

Thank you for all your ideas and helpful suggestions.

Br,
Håkon

Just a quick tip on this thread as its 'similar' to my problem - You have an old PCB that's failed. The great thing about these PCB's is that there not surface mount components, hence easy to troubleshoot and replace.

My boiler PCB failed but with a bit of testing, managed to fix it.

Take your board to a local electronics shop if your not electronically inclined, and for sure they will be able to fix it for usually no more than $50.

These PCB's are like engines, eventually a part will wear out, but you wouldn't by a whole new engine if you need a new thermostat- just replace the part.
