That could be part of the problem. Make sure the little thermocouple is in the small slot in the slider, then just slide the slider on the outside fin. This will not cure the operation on electric issue, but will fix the other issue. I would plug a small light ( old desk light etc) into the outlet where the fridge plugs into then start flipping breakers and GFCI's until the light comes on. Once you have power then plug in fridge and you will be good to go.

Sorry it took so long for my reply as I just got it back from the shop. Believe it or not the electrical box behind the fridge was not even wired into the fuse box. Factory screw up. I think Forest River should pay the $400 labor it took to find it. We all know that won't happen. Plugged it in about 16 hours ago. Freezer is freezing but fridge is only down to about 50. Loaded it up with pop and water for next weeks c camping trip, I've heard that this type of fridge works better full.

Still having fridge problem

Got the XLR back from the shop. The power box behind the fridge wasn't even wired into the fuse box. Thought I was home free. Got it home and plugged it in. Took two days to get down t o about 45. Stayed there for a couple days, now it's back up to 59. Worked for a week over Labor day on gas. Stayed around 40. Beer was good and cold. Freezer seems to work on either gas or electric. The fridge part has me baffled. We loaded it with pop and water when we tested it. Any more ideas out there.

Do you have a fan inside the fridge?
How about fans on the outside?

Usually if the freezer gets cold, the cooling unit is working so you have to find ways to help it cool more efficiently.

Interior fan(s) might help and exterior fans too.

Many refrigerators work better on propane as the higher heat from the burner does a better job converting liquid to gas than does the (usually lesser) heat from an electric element.
