PLEASE help -Fridge Problems

Unit: 2015 Georgetown 270s
Problem: The plug under the dinette blew and the fridge will not run. The light comes on inside the fridge but the check light comes and the fridge wonít run. I tried it on propane and it still will not run and the check light comes back on, so neither electric or gas will run fridge but itís getting some electric because the lights on the outside and inside of fridge works. All this didnít happen until the plug went out under dinette.
Questions:
1. Could they be connected or the weirdest coincidence???
2. I looked at the circuit breakers and none are tripped. I even manually turned several on and off including the main for the whole unit.
3. I also looked at all the fuses and none are burned out, all seem to be okay.
4. The only GFI is in the bathroom that I can see and that is fine.
Ultimate question Ė Is there a GFI hidden somewhere for the plug under the dinette that I canít fine???
Please help all the food is warm and starting to be ruined, this happened when we went to bed and didnít notice until this morning.

Propane reefers run on 12 volt, with the exception of the 110 volt heater when on AC. Does it try to ignite? You can open up the outside cover and watch it try to light. If doesn't try, then it is probably the control board.

I only have the one in the outdoor bay near the door, however that one doesn't have a reset??? I never seen a GFI without a test and reset button. It says GFI on it but no buttons? The only GFI I have other then that one is in the bathroom but that one is working fine...perplexing.

Not one there in the 270s. I'll keep looking around but I can't imagine where they hid it.

They put the GFI's in some strange places, Keep looking. It may even be in the outside fridge access door.

Having said that, It sounds like you have another problem also. Because you don't have any 120 volt power to the fridge it's trying to run on propane. You're having a problem with the propane lighting and that's why the check light is coming on. You may need to clean the burner and orifice.

Can you tell us which fridge you have? Make and model?

How long has it been since you've ran the fridge on propane?

There can be several outlets being protected by the same GFI. Common in stick homes, easy test if you don't have a GFI tester is to trip the one GFI you have and plug a light into other outlets. If the light is out they are connected.
