Our refrigerator has been working fine until the other night it just quit.  We have power to the unit and the gas fires up, but won't cool in either mode.

dkontz6234,

 

Welcome to the FMCA Forum.

 

First, confirm that the refrigerator cooling unit is hot (feel the black tube near the burner area).  If it is not hot, the heat source is not working-- could be lack of 12 VDC, could be bad PC board, thermister or, I guess bad heating element (though not working on LP or 120 VAC probably rules out the heating element.

 

If it is hot, the cooling unit is bad and you need a new cooling unit or refrigerator.

The black tube isn't hot when the refrigerator is on gas or electric.

That would suggest that the PC board is not signaling for cooling.

 

First thing is to verify 12 VDC to the back of the refrigerator (the PC board runs on 12 VDC).

There is 12 VDC to the circuit board.
