Red light on Fridge

My fridge wonít go on with electricity. Works on propane but not electricity. I had the converter replaced 2 months ago and this is the 1st time Iím using it since the repair. I checked the fuse on the outside panel, looks good.
Should I unplug it? Is there a reset?

For the fridge to work on AC you need both 120 volt AC and 12 volt DC. The 12 volts is used for the fridge control. Since it works on propane you can assume the 12 volts is good.

What is probably missing is the 120 volts. This can be caused by a tripped breaker. No fuses are used on 120 volts and the converter will have nothing to do with 120 volts.

First check would be to cycle the breakers. Then look at the rear of the fridge. Many fridges are simply plugged into an outlet at the rear of the fridge. A loose or disconnected power cable to the outlet would cause the problem. If it looks good you can verify power is getting to the outlet by plugging in something else or measuring with a voltmeter.

If you are trying to run off an inverter, which converts 12 volts to 120 volts, that is an entirely different thing.

Thanks I’ll check. I have no inverter. I talked to service Dept…he said possible board issues…not sending signal. And by the way, he won’t work on it because I didn’t by it from his dealer. Thanks! I’m in California.

You donít say if it worked on AC before the converter was replaced. Your title references a red light but thereís no details on that. Fridge make/model may help too.

The logical first step is to use a meter to confirm ac power at the receptacle the fridge plugs into or where hard wired.
