No ... propane is not involved if you are using shore power or a generator.

If you want to run on electricity you must be hooked to shore power or a generator.

If the check light went on your frig thought it was supposed to be using propane. It would only come on if you have the frig set for propane usage, or if it detected electricity...and then no propane source.

Oops correction... that last line should read: "...or if it detected NO electricity (110v)... and then no propane source."

Sorry if I confused you.

Obvious question, have you checked to see if you have 110 to the fridge? Is there a fuse somewhere that might be blown? If you have electricity to the fridge and it isn't working, the board might be the problem. Good Luck and let us know how it all works out.

The first thing to do is check to see if the three-pronged 110/120 VAC cord from refrigerator is plugged into the wall outlet in back of the refrigerator. This just happened to me recently when I discovered that neither the factory nor dealer had plugged it in. The fridge had run solely on propane for four years in spite of being hooked to shore power. When I ran out of propane it could not switch to 120 VAC. BTW: the circuit board and front panel run on 12 VDC (battery).

50kip,
Thanks,
I will be checking to see if they plugged fridge back in. That seems the most logical solution
