Refrigerator Works on Gas Only

Hi,
I have a 2014 Forest River FR3 30D.

My fridge cools fine on gas but does not work on electric. Here are some notes:
1. All other electrical works fine. I have reset all breakers in the breaker box.
2. The RV is mostly level. Just slightly off level.

Does anybody have any ideas on how to troubleshoot further? Are there any specific fuses I should check?

thanks in advance!!
-Aaron

Did you check all of your GFCI circuits?

You should tell us the manufacturer of your unit and its model number.

Thanks for the responses.

I checked the GFCI outlet in the bathroom and it is fine.

The fridge is Dometic. Model Number: DM2653

Be sure to check for power on the outlet that the fridge is plugged into.

Thanks. I checked and there are 118 volts at the outlet that the fridge is plugged in to.

Just had the same thing happen to me. Pull the plastic cover off of the circuit board is located on the outside. Check the two fuses. If they're both good, replace the circuit board. About $90. I had to replace mine.
Good luck

Had the exact problem with my XLR. Similar fridge. Replaced the thermistor and added a fan. Not it. Finally replaced the heating element. On electric now it gets in the high 30s and stays there. Easy job. All kinds of u-tube videos on installation. I think the element on Amazon was under 30 bucks. Good luck.
