W​hat is the make and model of your fridge? This is usually a blown fuse on the control board or a bad heating element. It can be easily checked. Once I know what you have I can supply a copy of the Service Manual and give some direction on the testing to track down the problem. All follow ups are included in our one time fee. No time limit.

No problem. I am here every day. I would pick up a small digital multimeter if you don't already have one. About $20 or so and easy to use. Great tool to have in your RV tool kit. That would allow us to track this down in just a few minutes and then I can give you any part numbers you might need.

Just checking back in to see if you were able to track down a meter for some testing on the fridge?
