Dometic 1350 120VAC Heater Replacement

Took this on because the refrigerator had quit working on shore power. Removal of the old heating element was the most difficult part of the job. There are two guides on the heater housing that the elements slide down into. The old element tested OK as far as resistance and continuity to ground. The problem was the frig would work on shore power anywhere from 1 min to several hours and then blow the 5A glass fuse that protects the circuit board. Once I got the old one out (it was at ambient temp) the new one slid in nicely and plugged right into the board. Got the new element from ApplianceZone.com for $91. Frig ran fine this weekend while camping.
