Thanks guys. Apparently the fridge GFI is the receptacle by the bathroom faucet. The coils are heating up and the freezer and fridge are starting to .cool.
Moral of the story for Solera owners: if fridge does not come on, check GFI next to bathroom sink

if you are completely sure you have A?C voltage at the refrigerator outlet. Then turn of the power to that plug at the breaker, remove the cover on the circuit board ( Black box on back of refrig.) and check the two fuses on the board. You may have gotten a surge of power to blow one of the fuses.

Hillsdaletc, check post number 4. First thing I checked was those two fusea. Thanks for trying to help. It was a tripped GFI.

when mine went out the light on the front blinked 3 times pause 3 more blinks. The heating element had burned out for the electrical plus the "bakelite" around the reset switch broke.

Pain in the rear but ohm test the heating element. Good video on you tube. That fixed my problem
Google element. Cheaper on line. Not hard to replace

Dometic fridge runs only on propane

Agreed - was checking this plug socket today and didn't know it was GFCI controlled. Learned something new.
