|I have a dometic rv refrigerator. (Installed in a 2005 open road 5th wheel - 396RDDS|
model NDR1062 - product # 921 1461-48 Serial# 448 03049
I have replaced a burnt out element, Like I mean burnt out and burnt completely off at about the 5 inch point of the element (from bottom of the element to the top or the bend).
I thought that it was maybe a faulty element, dealer warranted it and It has happened again, burnt completely off 5 inches from the bottom. This time it also blew the 5amp fuse on the board. Dealer has inquired with the "tec department" and we are waiting for a reply. I'm not sure at this point if the manufacture will warranty the element, but i guess we will learn that in the near future. It was warrantied once already, but it looks like the same problem exists whether it is a faulty element twice in a row or something that I'm not understanding. The fridge sees to work fine on gas, but I don't know if they ever shut down on gas once at temp. I have lost two fridge full of food, not willing to do it a third time, im only a weekend get away guy, so all the food comes home at this point, but Im not willing to do that for ever either. Everything works otherwise. If it burns out again without reason, I guess Ill put a self resetting surge protector power bar with a on / off timer on it and run it on 3hrs and off for 6 hrs or something like that. i need someone to tell me the easy fix.!! Are you out there??

|No Easy Fix.|
Repeated element failures points to a problem with the element holder on the cooling unit or high voltage or just unlucky and got a bad element or two.
If it has a second element tube try putting the element in that tube, the element may fit tighter and fail less often.
As to loosing food, if you have the lpg bottle on, the fridge SHOULD detect the element failure and chage over to lpg automatically.
