Dometic gas/electric fridge stop running

On our week long trip and the fridge has stopped cooling, opened the freezer and the ice was water. It has power but not cooling at all. The plug has juice and I have plenty of propane, tried it on both and it won't kick on to start cooling.

I have the slide in the fridge slid up and it won't kick on


Thoughts ??

There is no kick on with this type of fridge its an absorption unit (no compressor like residential fridge) It takes hours to cool down. Make sure you have 12V power to the fridge and check to see if the propane lights, if so let it sit without opening for 24 hours and then see how cold it is. You can try the same thing if you are plugged into shore power in any case you need 12V to make it work.

Since it won't work on either gas or electric, I'm thinking the same as SeaDog, check the 12 volt power to the board.

Also, there are a couple of fuses on the board and one of them could be blown.

Reset?.

Good fix, like a computer. Unplug it and try again. But what do you mean by "Reset" ??
