Unhappy Dometic refrigerator down

I have a 2005 40ft fdqs Alpine. This weekend my wife replaced the little light bulb in the frig.it flashed on for a second then the whole refrigerator shut down.
It was working fine up until then. No breakers were flipped.i opened the outside panel behind the unit. There were two in line fuses which were ok. It is a side be side Dometic.. Any thoughts:

Have you confirmed 12 VDC to the refrigerator (access through outside access door.

You mention no breaker tripped (120 VAC), but the refrigerator PC board is 12 VDC. Assume you have checked the 12 VDC fuse in the 12 VDC panel.

I was able to just get that panel box open. Engineers are useless when it comes to thinking about repairs. Had to take the whole exterior access box off to be able to get the fuse box open.. The fuses appear good but will try and find replacements tomorrow and see if that was the culprit. Went to pep boys but they didn't have any matches.
Thanks for your thoughts

I just had a problem with mine on a trip thru Montana. Stopped in a HUGE Dealership in Missoula and Technician came out with a 110 plug with 2 spade terminals on it. Unplugged the fridge pulled the wire bundle from in front of the burner there was a white bundle and a black bundle. 2 on top 1 on the bottom. He pulled the single white and single black and used his jumper to bypass the controller. Can't leave it on more than 24 hrs. If it works its the controller, if not its the fridge. Mine happened to need nothing, after 24 hrs i put it back together the was it was and its been working great ever since. This was just 2 weeks ago.
Hope this helps.
