Betty, Since this is a 3 way refrigerator there are a few things we need to define. The refer requires 12 volts to operate a circuit board that tells the refrigerator to operate in 12 volt mode 110 volt mode or in gas mode. So the first thing would be to determine that the refrigerator has 12 volts to the controller circuit board. It could be that you have a blown fuse. Since this refrigerator is not original, you will have to determine where the fuse is if you do not have the 12 volts for the controller. If you do have power to the controller are you able to change the mode from electric to gas? If not your controller board could be bad.

These RV refrigerators do not have a motor. They operate by heating and cooling the gas inside the refer tubing. The heating is done either by gas heat or electric heat (12 V or 110 V).

There are lots of other possible problems such as a bad thermostat, leaking of the refrigerant gas (usually accompanied with a really bad odor), or poor air circulation for the heaters, but you need to determine the items in my first paragraph first.

Steve,
Thank you for your reply.The 12V for the refer does work,the control panel lights up.We can also switch it from electric to gas no problem.We have not smelled gas leaking.Everything seems to be working except the refer does not get cold.
Thank You
Betty
