Dometic thermostat

Today our bedroom thermostat crapped out. It will switch between modes but the Temp is stuck on 32deg.
I've tried several things to attempt a reset but if there is one I can't find it.
is the thing toast and where is a good place to get a replacement?
Closest service location is about 300 miles away and I bet I can get it change out if I can find one.

Anyone with a secret fix for these things.
thanks for any help
Jack

As stated above, it sounds like you are stuck on centigrade and pushing the up and down arrow at the same time will put you back on farenheit. All you have to do is brush it with your shoulder and it can do that. You can guess how I know.

Had this same problem a few months ago. By accident the Dometic thermostat had gotten itself programmed somehow. He had me clear out the programming portion of the unit and has not gone back to 32F since then. In my case it had nothing to do with C and F settings just the programming portion of the thermostat..

The Dometic digital thermostats are very sensitive, I removed the covers on both and have a lot less issues.

I have learned not to raise my voice around them. If I do I never know what temp they will pick for me

Thanks everyone for the help. I had tried the holding both arrows at eh same time as well as the mode and arrows at the same times and that didn't seem to do anything but finally decided to turn the AC breaker off and on and dang if the silly thing just started working. I think the thing has AI installed and thinks it has a sense of humor.
anyway thanks, we are cool until the next time.

We are camping for the week and yesterday the living room thermostat started changing to 90 degrees and then later 55 degrees. I removed the cover and checked wires, but all ok. Put cover back on and now it shows 32 degrees C. I called Dometic, explained the problem and they are shipping two new stars today. My dealer told me today that they have a lot of issues with the touch version of thermostat. No must or fuss, called and they are shipping them. Way better than taking rig to dealer, wait three weeks for part, and then have to pick up. It a five minute joc to change out.
