Thermofuse

My Dometic refrigerator will not stay on, I replaced the thermo fuse and it came back on for 1/2 hour and all power was lost because it tripped the thermo fuse again. from what I have found so far was that I need to replace the cooling unit but that is unsatisfactory. Anyone know anything else I can try? Heating element, or is there a fan I can check? Thanks

Will it function on propane. If so, then I think your problem is on the 110v side. Sorry, just read that is on the 12v side. Found this Dometic refrigerator blowing fuse!

no, unfortunately it will not. There is no power. Although I have not tried to start it with propane. I will try that if I can get it to turn on. Thank you

you can just bypass the fuse to test. but a better test would be to just run the core direct electric. thats the standard test for a core. 110 straight to the element.
