Love my 42 year old fridge. Light the flame and it runs itself. No computer. No moving parts. What's to break?

If you are able and have a multi-meter you can refer to this troubleshooting document, if not, a service provider is your best bet:

Good suggestions above. Sometimes the issue is identifying where the issue this case is it electrical (12v) control board or LP supply or fridge itself? I would completely power off for 5 mins using batt disco switch then verify LP is working as asked above (will stove burn?). Then turn on LP, 12v power, and fridge in that order. Then see if you hear clicking and burner lighting from outside fridge access door (with door closed). I can hear our fridge burner when on LP. Now you will be on your way to pinpointing the problem.

We finally stopped for the night. The fridge is colder than last night, but I still don't think it's working properly. I turned the power switch (store) off 10 minutes and the screen is still blinking from dot5 dot1, to LP. If 5 is the highest temp, why would it blink dot5 dot1?

ShinyPete, if this doesn't work, I'll try your method next. I really appreciate all of the help from everyone (especially on a Sunday morning, now Sunday evening). We thought it was working again this morning, then we had more adventures that I won't go into here, but our focus was diverted. Then we had to get on the road.

We are actually in the process of moving across country and the Airstream was in leue (I know that's spelled wrong, but I'm tired) of hotels and restaurants. Our moving van is going to arrive ahead and will be waiting on us, so we need to make haste.

Last summer, our fridge was barely cool. We decided we had overloaded it and blocked the air circulation. Decreasing the load solved the problem.

On another trip, we destroyed our fridge by driving on a washboard road. A very definite strange odor indicates death of your fridge. We added a block of ice and used it as a cooler for the duration of our trip. No freezer, but well insulated cooler.

Good luck!

Check the operations manual under Error Codes, and see if 5.1 is an error.

We have a 2011, and a year ago the reefer and freezer stopped working. We had gone through a rain storm and I think the electronics got wet. I messed with it at the camp ground that night to no avail. The next morning I checked all electrical connections and nothing was blown. I then followed the reset procedures, then the refer turned on and resumed normal operation.

Also we have found that we need to check the doors as we close them, they don't always "click" closed.

Good Luck...

LP is full and working (stove, furnace, and water heater). I'm going to see if I can find error codes. I think there are a couple of docs/manuals missing in our packet.
