Robs make sure you are supplying enough power to the AC, if you are using a long extension cord that may not pass enough voltage for the compressor to start jus a thought

Hey, look at the bright side. Were on day 9 of our 10 day maiden voyage and so far.

2nd day the fridge switched over to gas. Found a blown fuse on the AC side of power board. Took a day to find that fuse but did not correct the problem. The AC heating element is shorted. Wait until you find out the fun you'll have trying to get parts for the new Chinese Dometic DRM702 fridge. I had two "authorized" Dometic service places tell me they will no longer do warranty work for Dometic. Too much paperwork and red tape and are not paid enough to justify their time.

The Magic Chef microwave decided to magically go up in a poof of smoke while not even being used. It smells more like a Lionel train than a microwave. Called dealer and was told to bring it in and they would contact Magic Chef which is what Rockwood would tell them to do. Its covered under its own warranty as are all appliances and components. I did that myself. They want me to take it to a service center. By the time I jump through all these hoops may as well just buy a new one. Beginning to think the FR warranty is about worthless.
