Dometic Refrigerator check light

The check light on Dometic Refrigerator comes on and the unit isn't cooling properly. It is set to Auto mode and the gas is turned off. Any idea what the problem could be?

When in auto the gas has to be turned on. When you loose power to it , it switches to gas automatically. If it didn't light or the gas is off, it will turn that light on to show you it's not working. That's if I read your question right.

Thank you, maybe that is part of the problem. We turned the gas off when plugged in at the campsite and didn't realize it needed to stay on. The problem is that when the light came on, it stopped cooling. It was plugged in the whole time so we are wondering if there is constant flow of power to the refrigerator. I wouldn't think is should keep switching from AC to Gas while plugged in.

No it shouldn't, unless the power blinked on you. It will not come back until you reset the switch. Best to leave the gas on, it really doesn't use much at all, a lot of times I put it in gas, and just leave it there.
