Broken dometic 2501

Hi, I have a dometic 2501 2 way fridge, (1991) it works fine on propane but no longer works on 120 V ac power. The unit is too big to be removed from the camper, any thoughts on repair? the fuse is good and has power to the outlet. Any input is appreciated.

Check the 120 volt heater element.

Moved thread from the Welcome Mat section to the Appliances and Electronics sub-forum, in the Tech and Repair section because the OP's post is strictly about Appliances and not an introduction post.

Actually, if the attached images are here, it was the tiny terminal block that the heater wires fed through that was the problem but you got me thinking though, thanks
