Dometic Australia has initiated a recall on RUA6 & RUA8 series absorption refrigerators sold between July 2018 and 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 6408X2 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

  1. Find the model (MOD.NO.) and serial number (SER.NO.) on the rating label located inside on the left-hand wall of the fridge.
