Temp Indicator Lamps cycling 1-2-3-4-5-1-2-3-4-5 repeat.


RM3862, trailer is a 2007. Temp indicator lamps flash and cycle 1-2-3-4-5-1-2-3-4-5 repeat.

Any ideas as to what the cycling temp lamps mean and the cause?

Trying to absorb as much info as I can find about absorbtion referig and expirement with options before August hot trip to the beach. Did search, didn't find anything about lamp flashing and cycling. I have seen and read a lot of forum issues with referigerators, so this is a new learn area for me.

I have been running unit at home in the shade, daytime outside temps mid 90's evening temps mid 70's. Running on gas first them 120V monitoring temps. Decided it was time to bring the temp down from position 5 to 3. As I tried to change, the indicator lights just started flashing in sequence. I pushed every button, no luck and finally turned it off, waited and restarted, went back to "normal operation". This morning, changed temp again and it started the cycling all over again, shut off and restarted it.

I have recorded temps in freezer and fridge box, seen as low as ZERO in freezer and actually froze water in fridge before adjusting temp up. This also included a small circulation fan inside and a temperorary fan on the outside coils, seen many creative ideas here about fans, will continue reading.
