I have a rpod 176 ith a dometic rm8501 refrigerator.
the refrigerator model is discontinued!  I need the burner assembly part 289060497, but cant find anywhere including dometic. has anyone had sucess in substituting another part number for this refrigerator? I need the burner with the ignitor and thermocouple which are all shot.

What makes you say that the burner is shot? What are the symptoms? How was this diagnosed?

Here is a link for one. I don't know if it will fit your refrigerator. It looks different than the one on mine. What year is your refrigerator?


Unfortunately, if you can't find it using Google or Duck Duck Go, it is likely that it  just is not available. In that case, you may be able to find one from somebody parting out a bad one that is being replaced.

If you don't want to spring for a new fridge, you may want to look for a used one.  Someone on the board may be interested in selling one or you may want to check with a salvage yard (look on the internet).

I replaced our fridge with one I got from the rPod factory.  They were very nice, helpful with the technical issues and gave me a pretty good price.  The installation was easy.
