New Dometic Replacement Cooling Units are installed by removing the old unit and replacing it with the new one. This can be done on a Dometic RV or Norcold model and requires careful attention to safety precautions.
To remove the cooling unit, you need to access the rear of the refrigerator and find all screws that hold it in place. On Dometic models, there are frame rails that have screws that pass through into the RV, and Norcold models often have a sheet-metal pan with screws passing through it.
Then, carefully pry out the cooling unit without damaging the cabinet or paneling. You may need to place a piece of 6×6 wood 10 to 11 inches long on the floor to help push the cooling unit out.
When replacing the old unit with the new, you need to apply evaporator sealing tape and Thermo-Mastic before installing it into the fridge. This is especially important on Dometic units where the evaporator foam pack has a frame member that blocks the application of the sealing tape.
