Dometic 3 way fridge reminder

Dear valued customer,
This is a friendly reminder of the below recall which is still active
Dometic Australia has identified a potential defect in RUA6 & RUA8 series absorption refrigerators sold in various brand RV's & caravans from July 2018 to December 2020. 

The Problem
If connected to and running on 12V DC in your recreational vehicle or via your caravan tow vehicle, a small wiring loom located at the back of the refrigerator can overheat and char. Under these circumstances, if there is foreign combustible material in the vicinity behind the refrigerator it could lead to a fire.
Model Numbers
The recalled model numbers are:
  • RUA 6408X 2-door absorption refrigerator, 188L
  • RUA 8408X 2-door absorption refrigerator, 224L
Serial Numbers
The recalled serial number ranges are:
  • MB 82200938 to MB 85100130
  • MB 90200892 to MB 95200685
  • MB 00100565 to MB 03701182
NOTE: the following models are not included in the recall:
RUA5 1-door absorption & all RUC5/6/8 compressor refrigerators.
For your information there have been no incidents leading to personal injury or RV/caravan damage. The charring described in the recall notice has been seen on a few failures, and in each case, has self-extinguished.

A precautionary/voluntary recall was initiated by Dometic in October 2020.
Luxury RVs are not Service Agents for Dometic Fridges. Please visit the Dometic website to find an approved service agent.
