Hi, I'm Robert. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily.

What is the Make and Model of the fridge, should be a sticker inside the door.

Is the control panel turning on or the interior light ON inside the box?

Thanks, Robert

What is the exact issue, is the control panel and interior light ON? OR the fridge appears to be working but the box is not cooling?
No worries on a call, I do not offer the phone services, the company Just Answer does, not me. Robert

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 2 years ago

The fridge requires good DC battery voltage to turn on and work, I would verify you have 12 volts going into the circuit board. IF you have 12 volts going into the circuit board unplug the fridge from the outlet and remove the cover on the circuit board, the circuit board is under the outside access panel. On the board are some fuses, one fuse is for the DC side or what allows the fridge to power on, the other fuse is for the AC side or what allows it to work on AC power.

IF you have good DC voltage and the fuse is not blown then it is going to be an issue with the circuit board OR the display panel that you use to turn the fridge on with. The only way to tell is to do some troubleshooting with a volt meter, below is a link for a service manual for this series fridge, it will allow you to do some more in depth troubleshooting. A volt meter will be required.
