Fridge just Kicked.

I have a 1966 Globetrotter that has the original refrigerator. The thing just craped out on me. I have always had it hooked up to AC. Worked fine since I have had it. Now it does not get cold. I was wondering where to start before I tear the thing apart. It does get power so its not a power issue. I like the way the original fits and looks. I really want to try to save it. Any tips would be great. Thanks!!!!

It could be the heating element is open. You could check it with a multi meter.

Does it work on propane?

have not tried it on propane. waiting on my plumber to replace all of the propane lines. I can't rush the plumber since he is doing all the work for free. He just redid all my water lines and said he would be back in July to go the gas.

Never rush anyone who works at that hourly rate!

no doubt. The only thing that the water pipes cost me was 20 bucks for some fittings he did not have on the truck. All new pex lines and a new WH. Pex is the way to go in my opinion.

As mentioned above test the element.

Remove one side of the wiring to the element. Now with the AC on test across the wires coming to the element for 110 volts. If that is Good. disconnect the AC and with an ohm meter test the wires going into the element. If you do not get a reading there the element is open. If you did not get 110 when testing for it the board may be bad or power may not be getting to the board. Test the input to the board for 110.
