This is the first time someone has said they have a number error code. They've always used letters, as far as I know. Since the fridge won't work in either power mode, you've either lost the refrigerant from a leak in the sealed system, or the control board is malfunctioning. In either case, you'll need to have the problem diagnosed by a Rrefrigeration technician. If the need contact information for the service dealer nearest you, go to www.thetford.com. and use their dealer locator menu.
