Exclamation Dometic 2 door 3 way fridge not cooling...

Dometic 2 door 3 way fridge not cooling in the fridge, but the freezer works just fine... 120v power no problem.

is there a 'cavity' or connection between the two areas that could be clogged?

or
how does the 'thermistor' temp sensor work? What does it tell the fridge to 'do'?


thanks : )

sorry, it's a two-way, with constant 120v power - and the freezer works perfectly, but no matter when the 'thermistor' sensor height is on the fridge section, it's not cooling now, even though it has been for months.

o.k., we've solved the recent problem...

history: bought the used RV back in June, fridge and freezer worked perfectly all that time since

recent: fridge lost cooling, freezer seemed to be working just fine



SOLUTION: I realized that recently while 'winterizing' much of the RV, and having put insulation batts behind each outside compartment door, I had also had the 'brilliant' idea of also putting insulation batts behind the fridge's outside vent cover.
I now realize that this is a mistake, as RV fridge's need air flow...

when we removed the insulation yesterday, the fridge today is suddenly COOLING just as it should be....solved.
