Dometic fridge new cooling unit query

Hi all,

I have had the cooling unit of my domestic fridge repaired for a fault in the tintent.

Now, I have the fridge running on any fuel mode and there is a 'hot' smell. Not burning but slightly worrying non the less.

Is this likely to be the new part running in? The service agent didn't see any issue when double checking. Any one had similar?

Thoughts welcome

Thanks

I'm pretty sure mine had a whiff when running on gas for the 1st time.
Can you switch it to each mode in turn to try and identify if it stinks on all sources?

They may have painted the cooling coil and that may smell. I thought the units could not be repaired as they were sealed. Who did you use if you don’t mind. My Fendt caravan fridge is obsolete and the chiller will not run on any setting. Thanks.

It was a whole new cooling unit, effectively the whole rear of the fridge bar the elements.

I used the Dometic approved chap - Mission Impossible - great service to be fair.

It’s a Swift Russell.

Time will tell. Currently it’s down at the right temperature but then it isn’t really having to work.

Was your fault not getting down to temperature?

Yes it would not get down to temp in warm weather
Swift asked Domtic to put in new fridge they said no and put in new cooler unit which did not work so ended up putting in new fridge
Is a Swift Elegance with the big fridge

Ah ok, same issue. This is an under counter fridge in a Challenger.

I guess we will find out in the summer Neutral
