Sorry for the delay, your question was in the appliance section and not the RV section.

The red light you are seeing under the outside access panel is a high limit and if the light is ON it has been set off.

The fridge runs on DC power not AC power, the DC power is needed to run the circuit board, so the fridge will still turn on if the fridge is unplugged.

To reset the sensor get a strong magnet and it hold it right on the sensor above the light for about 30 seconds, inside the sensor is a reed switch and a magnet should reset it. IF the sensor will not reset or it comes back on after the reset then I would have it looked at. Low DC battery voltage can cause it to go off or if you are having a high temp condition and that is normally a cooling unit problem.

Again sorry for the delay and if you do need more help with this please feel free to contact me, I am around daily and respond when I can.
