Cool Norcold 9162 Fridge

I know refrigerator issues are a bugaboo for everyone, but if someone has a "quick" analysis of this issue, I would appreciate it. This fridge is not detecting that AC power is available...I've checked the power cord, connections, fuses, and DC power...all OK. Also will not ignite on propane...so I'm assuming the circuit board is fried... Any other diagnosis? Thanks!

Circuit board. Replace with a Dinosaur Electronics board. Much cheaper and better built than OEM

Just in case you do not have it, here a link to a 9162 Service manual that includes
detailed trouble shooting procedures.

Thanks for the info...I found the User's Manual online, but the Service Manual is much more helpful...will continue diagnostics. Also will contact BestConverter for appropriate Dinosaur board!
