Dometic Refrigerator Recall – Update…
Just wanted to let you folks know again about the Dometic Refrigerator Recall. I’ve had 4 calls this week regarding Dometic refrigerators. I certainly do not want anyone to have an unfortunate outcome by turning on their LP gas w/ a recalled Dometic refrigerator.
“These refrigerators were installed in certain recreational vehicles as original equipment and sold as aftermarket equipment. A fatigue crack may develop in the boiler tube which may release a sufficient amount of pressurized coolant solution into an area where an ignition source (gas flame) is present. This release of coolant under certain conditions could ignite and result in a fire. There are potentially 926,877 units affected.”
“Dometic recently expanded its recall on a population of two-door refrigerators. The original recall included some two-door refrigerators manufactured between April 1997 and May 2003. The new recall focuses on models manufactured between June 2003 and September 2006.” Please check this link to find out if your model is in the recall. Follow their links to find an authorized Dometic repair facility and call to make an appointment.
“At no charge to you, Dometic’s SBH Kit needs to be installed on your refrigerator.” The authorized RV service technician can perform the installation for you in under an hour.
