My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.If you no longer need help post a simple reply to let me know.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here since your question has been sitting for so long.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

What can occur is the circuit board/control unit ECU can fail internally causing this issue here.It is usually located at the back of the fridge itself.Power will come in but the control unit will not operate the fridge causing this issue.I have had to replace several of these before for this fault.In allot of cases it can be removed and taken to a dealer or RV repair facility and they can test it to see if it needs to be replaced for sure.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
