Refrig issues

All of a sudden out light went out in the refrigerator and the light outside is blinking. We're hooked up to electric. Does anyone know what's going on? How to fix?

The light inside the fridge is 12v. Do you know what your voltage is?

My fridge lights blink when the propane side is not working (out of propane, air in the propane supply) etc. I've never seen that when connected to electric.

Are all the other electric outlets etc. working? Is your converter breaker switch off?

Even on 120v you still need a solid 12v supply to run the circuit board on the fridge. Is the 12v output from the converter functioning properly? Is the battery charged? Any other 12v problems?

If the fridge switch is set to "auto" the light will still blink when hooked up to electricity if there is a problem with the propane side.

I don't even carry propane and that line is all air but my light does not blink. I'm going on 4 years now with no issues.

If you lose AC power, even momentarily, the fridge will attempt to run on gas and of course fail if there is air in the line or the gas is off, this will make the light flash. My fridge has done this when our power has failed and the light will continue to blink until you turn it off and on again even if nothing is wrong otherwise.
