It might be an easy fix. Is it on? Unplug the thermistor. That will call for max cold. If it gets cold, there is your problem.


Just curious for future reference, as we have the same model in our 2005 RV ... where is the thermistor and what does it look like?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks ... that's what and where I thought it was.

I've read in the forums about sliding the thermistor up and down on the cooling fin in order to slightly adjust interior refrigerator temperature independent of the main (freezer) temperature setting.

Sliding the Thermister up and down is just for AUTO TEMP refers. They have no adjustable tstat. Moving the Thermister on a Auto temp only changes the interior temp about 4 to 6 degrees max----ie- was at 38 degrees and you move it and now at 34 degrees. Will NOT be a factor for poor cooling or NO cooling. Doug

A muffin fan will work wonders if placed blowing over the evaporator coils outside.


0lder unit 2006. Have stat in middle. Has power, no ice up,light is green,in NJ, about 80 out.
Odd, and freezer has layer of ice at bottom.


A BAD/Blocked cooling unit will still freeze water in the freezer. Odds are, you have run it out of level enough over 13 years that the accumulation of doing that has finally blocked the refer. The ONLY sure way to verify is to wire the 120 element direct for 24 hours and see what happens. If it does NOT get down below 40 degrees the Cooling unit is BAD and needs replaced. Also, is the Refer in a slide room? Have you checked to roof top ventilation to make sure it is open for hot air to flow out? Doug

That is what came to my mind.

Make sure the roof vent (or upper vent if fridge is inside a slide-out) is not blocked by debris. Maybe a critter built a nest inside or at the opening of the vent.

Question: So, should we periodically remove the roof vent cover over the refrigerator to check for debris and/or other materials that may not be allowing the refrigerator to properly vent? Never even thought about doing this but sounds like a preventative maintenance item.

Yes, There are only 4 screws that hold the top cover in place. Just use a flashlight to look inside for any debris. Rodents can chew the top screen away and then build a nest. Doug
