I suspect it's not getting juice? Iíve checked the breaker and itís okay. Also checked the fuse underneath the frig that I accessed from the exterior, and it appears okay. The troubleshooting guide doesnít offer any other suggestions other than call a repairman. Anyone had any experience with this or other suggestions? I need to find the power coming in to the unit and check it but haven't had a chance. Qualifier: I'm not exactly a pro at doing this stuff!!
I have a dumb question: how can you tell which power source (gas or electric) it is using and/or if it has switched over?

On my frig up at the top right, there is a readout that gives the temp and also says "Auto" and "LP". If the frig is on Auto, a small dot appears to the left of the word. When running on gas, a small dot appears to the left of the word LP. When it's running on electricity, only the dot to the left of Auto appears.

Hope that's easy to understand!

Mine just has the ON/OFF and AUTO/LP buttons, no indicator lights which one (electricity vs. gas) it's using when in AUTO mode.
