Dometic RM1350 refrigerator not cooling

Please help if possible
Left home two days ago fridge worked great, next day it appears to be running on electric and gas I can hear both. Sounds normal but no cooling. I turned off the unit and tried a restart. Still the same. I hit the reset on the back of the unit. It was tripped. But still all the same. Looks and sounds normal but no cooling. Sitting at 60* frustrating to say the least. Turning a good trip into a bad one.
Thank you

I don't know if it would power up if blown but there are 2 replaceable fuses on the circuit board accessible from the back.

The manual is no help it says to shut it down and call Dometic if it stops cooling. It also says to not keep restarting unit.

A refrigerator doesn’t run on both power sources simultaneously as a water heater can.

You are correct. It cycles back and forth. But not at the same time. You can here when the electric comes and then shuts off and then the propane fires. But nothing cools.

Thereís something wrong if it cycles between the two sources. IF the control panel switch is set to Auto, the fridge will operate on electricity if present and on propane if no electricity is present. If yours with cycling between the two, your electricity may be going off/coming on.
I have new hearing aids and I donít think I can hear mine operating on electricity except for heat-induced ticking.

What is the year, make and model of your rig?
You've done the recommended fixes, so you may need to contact Dometic or your dealer.
In the meantime, a bag of ice might help salvage your weekend. Just treat the refrigerator as a huge cooler.

Well the fridge wasn’t working at all then it started cycling on and off ����*♂️ I have a new circuit board coming in a few days. Hoping that’ll fix it.

We are assuming you did select AUTO/GAS for LP mode, to check that side correct?

Ok possible problem. I have no power to any outlets. The two GFIís have a yellow light. It will not reset. Great.
