It should automatically switch to electric when plugged into shore power. I know in my camper fridge, when the auto button is off, the refer runs continuously.

I don't think the fact that you were on a 30amp site has anything to do with your fridge not running on 120v power. I'm betting it was more of a coincidence than anything else. The fridge isn't a terribly high user of power- we had more issues with our water heater kicking on when other high power usage appliances were running. But even then, it would just trip the breaker at the campground box.

UNFORTUNATELY, I have no idea what to tell you that might be wrong. Hopefully someone else comes along with ideas.

What ependydad said.

The usual things to check like your panel circuit breaker. Plug something else into the outlet that your fridge is plugged into and see if that other thing works. If it does, check the fuses on the circuit board.

Sometimes the simplest solution is the one overlooked. I've been there.
