Residential refrigerator questions

My wife and I bought a 2015 Heritage last weekend. My question is when we got home I plugged it in . My residential refrigerator did not come on. My camper is 50 amp. I had it going down to a 30 amp than a what I would call house plug.i will be installing a 50 amp plug later on. Is there any kind of safety Device that would keep it from coming on. It never came on. Went out a few days later nothing. The camper was out of level I would say 4 maybe 5 inches I leveled it up and left it. Than went back a few days later and itís working fine.

Do you know if this fridge came with the rv when it was new or if it was added on by the last owners? I know ours has been running when we get drinks from it at rest stops even when parked on a slope. So I doubt leveling was an issue, but can't say for sure. If you have or can look up the owners manual for it, that should provide some info.

Also, is it possible you're wife reset a breaker and didn't mention it?

2 things.. look to ensure the breaker is on. Look in the panel where your 50 amp shore power breaker is. My rv has a breaker labeled refrigerator/inverter. Make sure that is on.

Also make sure the fridge is on by turning the thermostat knob inside the unit to the mid position.

You did not mention if the fridge light is on. If it is off it is probably the breaker.

If you get it working, let us know and then we can discuss running from the inverter.

I checked all the breakers by flipping them. I’m assuming that it came in the camper sure looks like it.

I tried the inverter and it would not work but the fireplace would. We picked it up last Saturday and they had it plugged in and the frig was working than.

Ok, if the light is on you have power to the fridge. Did you find a thermostat?

Yes it working now I just don’t know why it wasn’t Saturday when we got home or Tuesday. The only thing I did was level it and even than the light inside the frig would not come on. But it is now and cold inside.

Are you're battery(ies) in good condition? The inverter works from battery power and will only power the fridge when disconnected from shore power. I know our inverter has a rocker switch in the house panel and a push button on the inverter itself. The inverter button has to be off for the house panel rocker switch to work. Don't know if yours is the same or not.
