So on the back of the fridge you have a terminal block the DC power goes to, make sure you have voltage at that point, it will be a plastic block the wires get screwed down to. IF you have voltage you will see the wires running to a circuit board. Unplug the cord from the outlet and remove the cover on the board, on the board are some fuses, one fuse is for the DC power or what allows the fridge to turn ON.... Make sure the fuse is good and not loose on the holder. IF the fuse is good look on the flue canister for a small disc with a button on it, that is a high temp cutoff and if that trips it will cut power to the fridge. To help you out on this click HERE for a service manual.

IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me, follow ups are included.

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

I will close this question out as you have already been given a refund. The credit that was given to me was taken away this am.

Normally you can go back and forth with an expert as long as you like with one charge but it appears you have been refunded.

Normally we can save you big time on not going to the shop and getting charged the labor time and down time.

Sorry it did not work out.
