Adequate shore power

Possible silly speculation....but....are you sure your shore power supply is bringing 120V into the rig?

Blue light? I have never seen a blue light. I have a yellow light that says the fridge is cooling. The light lies......
OK, yellow light-blue light, same thing. Make sure you have adaquate voltage coming in to your rig, which should be somewhere around 115 volts. Now you can go for a little "refreshment" and let the morning light tell the tale.

Someone mentioned to make sure your propane tank wasn't empty....I never thought of that.

At just under 2 years old ours had a Thermistor go bad and it did the same thing. I don't know how to tell you to check it, only that you would have to have a shop check it. Good thing for us was that Dometic has a 2 year parts/labor warranty and 3 years on parts.

One propane tank is full, the other has 1/3 tank. I have 120 v coming through shore power. I have had no fridge since yesterday PM. I have my fingers crossed for morning and the ice store is close.

You know that the propane tanks are full (and they are turned one) go ahead and switch the fridge to propane. Check to make sure the gas is burning and cooling the chemicals and hope (as Jeeper mentioned) the thermostat is working. If the electric, nor the gas is working, it must be that the thermostat isn't calling for cooling.

do u have a light showing that it is on (next to where it is switched between propane and electric)? when u put it on propane does it show an error.
what i'm driving at here is if u have 12 v. to it.

next question is was urs one of the ones in the recall? if so, did u have the modification made? if so, that could be ur problem...that mod is nothing more than a shut down if that area overheats.

do u smell any traces of ammonia mainly in the back or on the inside of the frig? this can happen if u get a leak in the sealed system.

what i would probably do is buy a small electric instead of the ice. that would buy u some time until the problem is repaired.

if u listen to it, do u hear a girgling?

next, before u call a service tec, unplug from shore power and look at the wires (in back of the frig)very carfully. check to see if those connections that u can see are pushed on all the way.
next step would be to call a dealer and get someone to troubleshoot it. i'm looking at heck7769 post and thinking control board but like to see try and make sure something didn't come loose (electrical) on the pull from degray to branson.

Okay. Underneath the outside cover, there is ANOTHER small metal cover, held on by a screw or 2. under that cover there are 2 glass fuses; one for 110vac, and one for 12vdc. My 110 fuse blew, twice, due to a loose ground wire, and the service guy at the dealership showed me the fuses, and how easy they were to replace. MAKE SURE YOUR POWER IS OFF, before messing around in here. Touch the wrong thing, and @#%&*. But, this could be the problem. Randy

Thanks so much all. I will start the outside troubleshooting when it gets light. I just turned the fridge to propane and am being patient right now to see if any cool air arrives inside.
