Electrical Problem

For my test I put a couple of water bottles in the frig and the freezer. Also, put one of those little refrigerator fans in the frig. Also, temp gauge in each. After a couple of hours the freezer was down maybe 10-15 F but the frig had not budged. Then turned off electric and switched to propane. Frig started to cool down.

I have a Coachman APEX 215RBK.

Jeff

Do you have one of these on the far right fin? If so is it near the top or bottom of the fin?

The fridge lags behind the freezer in these units a bit, so I think you just didn't wait long enough on electric to see the fridge start to cool down. When you switched to propane, it was already cooling and it just continued to do so.

I bet if you turn it back on electric, it'll work fine.

Given the way the refrigeration system works the frig should work. It was a hot day, maybe 90, when I did the test. I'll try again and go for a longer time.
Thanks. Jeff

It's pretty interesting how these fridges work. You can't beat physics!
