As Herk said, it's the top item in the pic. It plugs into the control board. Just turn off the power or unplug the power cord and unplug one of the wires going to the element and see what resistance you get across the leads.

In your photo of the control panel, it looks as if the gas button is out....if it is, it will only run on propane, and there will be no lights illuminated. Just check to see if that is the case.....

We worked a similar issue in the other thread.

This is most likely the issue. If you press the "gas button" back in, the auto light should come on and the AC heater in the fridge will start working if everything else is OK.

I am having the same issue with my fridge. It is the same model, 2016 build date. It works on propane but not on electric. The outlet is working and the board recognises the incoming power, if in auto and I unplug it, it kicks in the LP.

Everyone was completely preoccupied about the bottons in their answers but I don't see the fix or if the OP got it working on AC.

I have not been able to test the coil, need batteries for my multimeter.

There is an AC fuse on the control board and of course there is an AC heater in the stack; either or both could be bad and give you this failure mode.

While you may not have this model, evaporative refrigerators are all pretty similar.

Plan on testing the fuse and coil as soon as I get home. The fuse looks good but I had to get batteries for my multimeter to be able to test anything. I will post my findings in the morning.

Looking at your pic, it looks like the black dot in the center is not sticking out as far as mine. Is this a reset button? Also, I thought that sensor was only for gas operation, since it is lower in the chimney than the electric element.

Small note, was too dark when I got home. Will have to do the tests in the morning. Fridge is running on LP just fine for now.
