Dometic DM2652RBX Tom Spence 8-27-12  
I have a Cross Roads Zinger with the Fridg Mod DM2652. The unit takes 2 days to get cold and only gets down to around 45 degrees. Then when I open the fridge (for less than Minute) it heats up and takes hours 5 to 6 to get back down to prior temp. I have never seen it at 30 to 40 degrees the safe range. Any suggestions? Appears that the unit was factory set, according to website I found. How do I tell what it was set on? Any way I can tweak settings? Ready to tear it out and buy a new unit. It runs off electric and propane. Thanks in advance

Specifications: After an 8 hour run:

Quart of water in freezer frozen.

Quart of water in fridge 42 F.

If the outside air temp is over 85 f performance may be degraded.

These are the rule of thumb specs we use in our shop. They are fairly close to what Dometic and Norcold will tell you.

To lower inside temp (if there is any capacity left) the temp sensor (called a thermistor) on the cooling fins is moved up. Once it is at the top of the fins and the outside air temp falls your beer will freeze.

These LPG amonia absorbtion fridges have two disadvantages.
1st The cooling unit has to deal with outside air temp rather than inside Air Conditioning Cooled temp like your home fridge.
2nd The cooling unit does not have a whole lot of excess capacity as elecrticity use, LPG use and 12 volt use are all critical measurements.

Good Luck
