Norcold fridge only works on LP

I have a 2018 2400WS with a Norcold N611VRT. The fridge works perfectly on LP. Irregardless if plugged to shore power, or not, it runs on propane.

I have checked the 110AC plug in the fridge access, it's hot. Getting 110 through the cord to circuit board, too. Both fuses on circuit board are good. Amber light is lit when fridgenis running.

I'm thinking it's the circuit board, any ideas?

Usually a blinking amber light on the refrigerator indicates that there is something wrong with the propane supply. A steady amber light may just indicate that it's running on propane.
The control buttons on ours allows us to operate on propane, electric or automatic (which switches automatically from electric to propane when the power is off) Are you saying that when it's on automatic that it switches immediately to propane? That would support your diagnosis that it will only run on propane.

From your troubleshooting, it's got to be an electrical component within the refrigerator.

Welcome to the forum.

This fridge doesn't have an "automatic" switch. It does automatically sense if there is AC power, if it does, it's suppose to run on shore power. If it doesn't, it runs on propane. This thing is running on propane always. I ohmed the electric element and it checks good. Pretty sure it has to be the board, have one on the way.
