Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

What is the make and model of this fridge? Do you have a small digital multimeter for some testing? That way we can track down the problem. All follow ups are included in our fee. I do have an RV repair shop and work on these all the time.

Off in middle. Left is auto right is gas. Green light for on which works even if fridge does not get cold and yellow for gas
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 5 years ago

When it won't cool........is the fridge level or not? Same on either mode? And when it comes on by itself, is one of the lights on or not?

Not perfectly level but down n front 2 inches maybe. When u turn frig to auto green light comes on whether frig cools or not light is always on
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 5 years ago

You are allowed 3 degrees maximum. When this light is on you need to go out and see if the boiler area is warm or not. We need to find out if the problem is between the control in front and the control board in back. Can you turn it on now?
