Refrigerator issue

We have a Vibe 268rks with the residential refrigerator. This morning we noticed that the fridge wasnít running. Everything still cold and frozen so it must not have been off long. Turned on inverter and fridge runs. It still wonít run on shore power. All other receptacles and appliances are working fine. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

you don't post what make / model inverter you have?

first, just for drill, go to the refrigerator circuit breaker in the distribution panel and trip it an reset it.

we have a xantrex prowatt inverter. it is an inverter only (no converter function) and it does not have an internal bypass relay. there is a separate small transfer relay that the refrigerator is plugged into. this relay switches the refrigerator between between the ac circuit from the distribution panel or the inverter. if you have a similar configuration go rap the side of this relay and see if it is stuck in the inverter position. if you have an inverter with in integral relay see if you can jiggle it.

Found the problem. 110 wire from inverter to plug in the storage bay was loose. Thanks for the input. Found it while trying to follow your checks. Never even noticed that plug before.
