Dead fridge

The refrigerator on my Grey Wolf 28bh worked fine until yesterday. We drove from Degray Lake to Branson. When we arrived here, the fridge was warm. I have checked all I know how to check. Finally I bought ice and hauled in the ice chest.
Any ideas?

Correct setting?

Were you running the fridge on 12V or propane while in route?

Not that I know of. I just unplugged the electric and drove off. I didn't change any setting at all.

If you unplugged and turned your propane tanks off before you left, then the fridge wouldn't cool. You could try turning the elec side back on if you have shore power again, of course it will take a few hours to cool off again.
Also might check the slide temp adjustment on the fins inside the fridge in case it accidently got pushed down.

Hopefully the auto switch got bumped into the off position or you are out of propane. Hopefully it will cool ok when you are home and have the electricity on.

I didn't turn off the propane before I left.
I have shore power and it has been plugged in for 24 hours. I kept thinking it would get cold but nope. The thermostat on the fins is in the right place. This morning the freezer was cold, but that is warm now too. The fridge has always had the electric button pushed. I tried changing it to propane today while here, but only left it that way for a few minutes.
Oh, we will not be home for about 3 weeks.

Shore power or propane?

I'm guessing you have now pushed the little button that turns your fridge on "automatic" and it is now either cooling on electric or propane???? It takes a while, be patient. I hope it is as simple as "The little button" not being depressed. If you are now on electric a blue light should signal your fridge is cooling. If you are not on shore power and on propane, go outside, open the inspection door and take a look to make sure the "propane flame is ignited.

Since the elec isn't working you could try leaving it on propane to see if it works. I wish I could be of more help but this beyond my "expertise".

Good Luck!

Electric or propane...

If you are sure your fridge is NOT cooling on shore power, switch to propane. If the propane doesn't cool, call the manufacture for a more definitive direction.

I have shore power turned on and the fridge on electric. I will switch to propane in the morning if it's not cooling.
Blue light? I have never seen a blue light. I have a yellow light that says the fridge is cooling. The light lies......
