Dometic Control Box Wiring

Your Dometic fridge does not come from the factory with adequate boiler temperature protection. This page shows the different Dometic wiring schemes along with the recalls enabling one to determine how to wire the Fridge Defend Control.

Around the year 2000 Dometic refrigerators started developing problems that resulted in fridge failure. The majority of these failures were located in the cooling unit boiler area. As as a result, recalls of the refrigerators were mandated. One fact is evident, the recalls were not totally effective because the failures continued. The Fridge Defend addresses one of the root causes of RV fridge failure which can result in a fire, the cooling unit boiler overheating. The Fridge Defend limits the cooling unit boiler temperature when installed, maintained, and operated correctly. To view how the boiler maintains a constent temperature, or overheats, click here to view video.

The following Dometic wiring schemes are provided so that the installer can easily identify the factory wiring scheme. Each wiring scheme is numbered for ease of communication if telephone or e-mail installation assistance is needed.

On some models of Dometic fridge, the fridge can be either a 2-way or a 3-way model, the fridge model number does not inform the installer which model it is at times, as a rule of thumb, if the last number is a 3 in the model number, it is a 3-way fridge.
Please use the image of the Dometic eyebrow boards to determine if your fridge is a 2-way or 3-way model.
Next, select the appropriate wiring scheme below for your type of fridge. Please note that the image to the right, 'D' is the DC LED, this makes this model a 3-way fridge. The image to the right also has a DC mode selection button (2), where as the 2-way fridge does not have this button.

Wiring Scheme Number 1 (no thermal switch)

(1) Starting at the RV, the RV delivers power to run the fridge and its controls. Please note that two wires will enter the cooling unit compartment, one power and the other ground. Because the color of the power wires vary by RV manufacture it is up to the installer to determine the correct wire color for the power and ground.

(2) All Dometic fridge have a screw terminal where the power and ground wires are routed from the RV battery to the fridge control. The ARP must be wired in-line with the +12VDC going from the screw terminal into the Dometic control box. Click for Further Reading on ARP Function

(3) Always start wiring by disconnecting the power to the fridge, this can be done by removing the fuse. The next step is to connect the ARP ground. The ARP ground is the green wire, the green wire may be connected either to the screw terminal, or the ground lug next to the screw terminal (2) on the sheet metal plate that the control box is mounted on. The ARP is shown spliced into the power wire, where the ARP red wire is connected to the power source coming from the RV battery. Remove the positive lead from the screw terminal and connect it to the ARP red wire. The ARP yellow wire is connected to the screw terminal where the power wire was removed in the last step.

(4) This is the Dometic control box, see (3) for wiring. Also, it is a good idea to either use an in-line fuse or an ARP Circuit Breaker in-line with the power supply to the control box.

(5) This is a simplified drawing of the tubes inside the boiler housing. Please note that the boiler tube (black) is behind the flue tube (red). The ARP Boiler Sensor is clipped onto the boiler tube (black), orient the clip so that it snaps around the back of the tube. Move the sensor away from the flue tube (red) and pack fiberglass insulation between the flue tube and the ARP Boiler sensor. Use caution routing the wires out of the boiler housing, the wires must not be cut by the boiler housing sheet metal, wrap fiberglass insulation around the Boiler Sensor wires to protect them.

Dometic 3-way

RM3663, 'some' RM3863, & MANY MORE ♥

Wiring Scheme Number 4 (3-way Early)

Please click here to see an alternative to this method.

We would like to begin by stating that we never use our 3-Way, where the 3rd way is the 12VDC heater. The 12VDC heater is not very effective for keeping the fridge cool, and without the ARP Control on the fridge use of the 12VDC heater is a great way to burn up the fridge. Therefore, one may just disconnect the 12VDC heater and wire your ARP Control the same as seen in the 2-way drawings.

In order to use the ARP Control with the Dometic 3-way fridge, where 3-way means the fridge can be run off of 12VDC heater, a relay for supplying power to the 12VDC heater is needed on some fridges.

(1) All fridges have two wires delivering the 12VDC power supply from the RV. When there is a 12VDC heater on the fridge, the wiring must be as shown using a relay (4) to power the 12VDC heating element. Note that the +12VDC power supply coming from the RV (1) to the fridge has to split, one line powering the ARP and the other supplies power to terminal 30 of relay (4).

(2) The ARP Control would be wired according to the installation instructions with the exception that the red 12VDC power wire would branch before the ARP Control so that relay (4) would handle the power load required by the 12VDC heater.

(3) Number 3 represents the factory Dometic controller. From the factory the 12VDC heater (5) may be wired directly to controller number 3.

(4) The load relay shall be wired as follows:
Terminal 30: The power supply entering the cooling unit compartment will power this terminal, make sure adequate fusing is on the RV.
Terminal 85: The relay coil will be grounded through this terminal.
Terminal 86: Preform the next step, terminal 87 before this step. Once terminal 87 is wired, run a wire from where you removed the +12VDC electric heater wire on the factory control (3) to terminal 86 on the relay. This wire will activate the relay coil and in turn supply power to the 12VDC heater (5).
Terminal 87: Locate the +12VDC power wire from the electric heater (5) to the factory control (3), remove it from the factory control (3) and place this wire on the relay terminal 87.
