2019 Cherokee 27bhs issues

Fridge works when it wants. It's the house model fridge. Water pump cycles off and on after shutting a water source off. A/c is noisy. Any thoughts? Is scheduled for second trip to dealer

Are you sure you are keeping the battery at full charge to operate the frig? shutting off the water source does not turn the pump off it will continue try to make pressure unless you shut off the power to the pump. Not sure what noisy AC is are talking compressor noise, air noise, blower noise?

I have a house model fridge this is while at the campground was never turned on before that the pump should shut off after water pressure is formed

OK you said the pump runs after the water source is shut off (source is incoming to the pump) if you mean after a faucet is turned off then there may be one or more fittings or the internal check valve leaking and allowing pressure to plead off and the pump to start. If your frig is plugged into an inverter make sure the inverter is switching to shore power and that your battery is at full charge. Are you saying it looses power and shuts down or stops cooling or are you hearing the compressor cycle just asking your description leaves room for allot of guessing.

Sorry on pump confusion. It's like you mentioned. The fridge doesn't cool. Freezer works great. Inverter is off. Batt is full

given your description I would say the problem is the frig fan is not working or the defrost timer has gone south both are easy fixes if they have the parts.

I have a Cherokee 274RKS

It has a Whirlpool residential refrigerator. I had the same problem. There is a fan behind the back panel of the freezer. It pushes cold air to the refridgerator. Mine was stuck. I gave it a quick spin and voila, it worked. I think turning it off while away allowed the bearings in the fan motor to get “stuck”. I hope it’s that simple for you.

Actually the residential frig does run off batteries when plugged into the inverter and the inverter drawing power from the batteries.

There are I think four round caps that cover the screws that hold that back panel on. I believe I just pulled off the knob with a good tug, removed the screws, and gently pried the panel loose.

Try a web search for a pdf parts diagram of your exact model. Might help you figure out the details of removing that panel.

Hope that helps, and fixes your issue.

No. Itís inside the freezer. You donít have to move the actual refrigerator at all.
