Refrigerator clicking sound when on shore power & fridge set to auto?

I've been camping in my Flying Cloud Bambi 2010 for a month, with the refrigerator set to Auto and shore power connected (I don't have LP in the propane tank). Today I noticed a clicking sound start coming from the fridge, even though the electric cord was plugged in. I checked shore power and the blue light on the adapter (power cord hooking up to trailer) on the outside of the trailer was on, so the electricity from shore is working. My guess is that what is wrong is that the area near the fridge has blown a fuse or something? The electric outlet near the fridge (over the bed) also seems not to be working.

The plug above the bed and the fridge were working as of this morning.

Check the breakers in the 110v electrical panel. Turn the one that is for that circuit completely off and then on. If it trips again, you have a short somewhere that needs to be fixed. That clicking is the ignitor trying to start your propane operation of the fridge. Good luck, Chris

I'm interested in this thread because our 2011 19' Flying Cloud fridge is also not working on AC when plugged in. Going back to dealer this week but it was in for this before and no resolution yet.

It turned out that the problem was with the GCFI/breaker in the cabinet that needs to be entirely turned off and then turned back on again. The fridge is back up and running again, yay!

Good catch...CB is correct ...the clicking sound is the frig trying to start up on propane when the electric connection fails for whatever reason....

I'd suggest getting some propane in your tanks just in case this happens again and you don't catch it...plus you'll have it for the furnace and cooking if you need it...

Glad you found the problem, and as TB says, get some propane on the tanks, just in case!!! Enjoy the warm weather. We will be in Yuma in another month, but flying in for a short warm visit. Chris
