Hi,
Just checking, did you ever get your fridge to work?
Did you bring to the dealer?

I found mine blinking LP last week. I was running it on 120v, at some time it switched itself to LP and my tank went empty. Switched tanks and got it running on LP. It won't run on 120v. the icon dot for auto will stay along with the icon dot for LP, but they don't switch one for the other. I have 120v at the plug, I tried rebooting from "store" with shore power off. Time for a service call.

Our fridge was doing something like that this weekend while camping.
Turned it off and then on a couple of times and then it seemed to start working. Not blinking anymore and seemed to be chilling.
Will watch for further issues with the fridge.
Anyone else having problems with their fridge?

Just a status update. I called the closest Airstream dealer. And the service technician told me the weirdest thing. In all his 15 years of working on Airstreams. He ran into an issue where the fridge wouldn't cool. He said that he had to leave the door open and heat the fridge. Once he did that it started to cool. I tried a similar setup, I place a hot cup of water inside the fridge, with thermistor on it. Sure enough the freezer had a ton of frost on it. And the Fridge was reading 48 on the outside screen.
So I tried to duplicate the effect without the hot water, but I can't seem to get it to cool. So I thought it was maybe the thermistor. So I ordered the Snip-The-Tip dealio. Just installed yesterday. I'm crossing my fingers, I must say the ambient temp is pretty cold out, not sure if that has an effect on it or not. And the fridge is completely empty, haven't put anything in it. If this doesn't work I'm taking it to a camping world or something at the end of the week.

All,
So took it to the dealer. And sure enough the whole cooling unit was bad. Go figure. Brand new and broken. hmm... Doesn't make me happy at all. So on that note, it was purchased from North Trail RV in Fort Lauderdail, Florida. Got a great deal and now I know why. Dometic is replacing it no worries. But still.
