Sorry for the delay I see no other experts have responded.

The fridge needs DC power to turn on NOT AC power. IF you go to the back of the fridge and remove the access panel you should see a circuit board. IF you remove the cover on the board you should see two fuses, one for the DC side and one for the AC side, make sure the DC fuse is not blown. IF it was blown the fridge would not turn ON.

Very important you unplug the fridge from the outlet before removing that cover, the AC fuse can still be hot if it is plugged in.

Let me know if you still need more help on this, I am around daily and respond when I can.

IF you are satisfied with my efforts please feel free to select a STAR rating on the page...
