Howdy from Tennessee, I'm Chris aka Moose. I'm glad you've come here to get help. I will do my best to give the answer you are looking for. I help many customers, sometimes my replies are delayed, I will respond once available. I try to be online at 1-5 pm and 10 pm-5 am every day. Who am I helping today?

When you open the door, does the light inside the fridge come on?

Is the control panel lit up and or flashing a code?

This is Larry. No, the lights do not come in. The control panel is not lit up.
RV Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Larry, I think a fuse has failed. IN the campers fuse/breaker panel check the refrigerator fuse likely a 15-20 amp fuse. Then pull the cover off the back of the fridge outside and the cover off the control panel and check those 1 or 2 fuses there as well. If a fuse has failed it may be that the bulb in the fridge is faulty and drawing too many amps from a filament issue.

Thank you for seeking us for help, I hope I provided what was needed. Press reply if you need to follow up. If you liked my answer please let me know so I can mark your question complete. Moose

It was a fuse! Works now. Thanks
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Hi. I returned to the RV and smelled something burning. It was the fuse I put in. All melted. Back to square one.
RV Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

This means there is a short to ground. Which fuse failed, fuse box or fridge panel?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Fuse box
RV Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Thanks, ***** ***** there is a short before the fuse powers the circuit board at the back of the fridge. If the fridge is in a slide that is likely in the moving area of the wiring harness under the slide. You need to remove the power wire from the circuit board and test the wiring to see if there is a short to ground to verify this.
