Dometic refrig 2014 FC

When I left home this morning my refrig was cold and working on shore power.
I get to my campsite and refrig will not work on shore power. Seems to be working on LP.
I have checked the breaker and it looks ok ?
Any ideas
Thanks

Flip your store/ use switch?

Thanks I will try that. Wonder how much propane the refrig uses.

As your fridge 120VAC outlet is technically 'outside' the trailer, it should be on a GFCI. I would check those, and be sure that you have 120VAC power at the fridge outlet.

If all is good there, you might have a bad fuse at the control board of the fridge. You'll have to check your manual to see which one it is. They are under the black plastic cover that houses the control board.

Does it work on LP?

Re: propane - it doesn't use much in my experience.

Also - I find I sometimes have to shut it off and turn it on again after going from propane to shore power. I'm not sure why - surely user error - but try that too if your use/store switch was already in "use" mode.

Last - push the door closed. It can sometimes seem closed but it isn't fully. Push the door with your hand firmly to triple check.

Good luck!

We have a 2014 Sport 22FB. Our fridge does not automatically switch over from propane to shore power (or battery, for which it has an option). We have to switch it manually with the selector on the front of the fridge.

Flipped the used store switch and that seems to have done it!
Thanks to all
