'87 Sovereign RM2800 electric fridge does not cool

My 33 year old RM2800 Dometic fridge has no circuit board. The LP part of the unit is working fine.The electric 120v has quit.The trailer breaker is good and so is the outlet for the fridge.Using a schematic for the RM2800, I isolated the leads to the electric heating coil under the boiler.I patched 120v AC into the leads and presto, the coil heats up hot.I would rather not remove the fridge from the trailer but the schematic does not show a fuse. So the power is not making it through the switch or the thermostat or is disrupted somewhere in the mess of wires under the unit.Does anyone know of a hidden fuse or has had a similar problem with this fridge?
Thanks for your thoughts.
