Default 2006 Roadtrek 170 Popular Fridge Issue

I just got this 2006 Roadtrek 170 Popular weeks ago.

I connected to 110v outlet and turned on fridge for the first time. It worked! really cool.

But the next day it stopped working. I tried all different options - DC, AC, gas. None of them can make it work again.

Any suggestions? I just can't believe it worked for one day and then quit.

Thanks in advance!

Tom

.

Check your DC supply.

The fridge needs DC to run the control panel.

+1 on this - start with the battery disconnect switch if 12V lights in the coach aren't working.

A sudden complete stoppage of a 3-way fridge does suggest a DC issue. A 3-way fridge that suddenly begins cooling very little suggests other than a DC issue. So the first question is, have you verified that it is TOTALLY dead?

There is a circuit board in the front part of your Dometic 2351 (that's what it is from the pic I see). Sometimes those fail. I've got a blog post here which describes how we did an early board replacement (which ended up NOT solving our problem, but there it is as food for thought).

'Tis the season for fridge failures. There's also the issue of what to try if the fridge is operating but not lowering the temperature very much. See this other thread here for information on that scenario.

Thank you all for the replies!

We went to camping last weekend and the fridge started working again. Not sure what went wrong when it parked on my driveway and connected to the 110v outlet.

I'll see if this issue happens again in the future.

All the best,

Tom
