I've had my TH for about a year and a half and haven't had any refridge problems until today. I live where I can park my TH in my side yard and keep it plugged in, so I just leave the fridge on. Well today I went out to get some butter to put on my baked potato and the green 'on' light was blinking five times then pause. I felt a chill come over me as I reached for the handle, I let out a barely audible 'Oh no' as the door swung open. I stood there for a sec not moving 'this can't be happening to me!' ran through my head. The light was on but something didnt seam right. I lifted my hand and slowly reached into the fridge...ITS WARM, OH NO...Oh my god what about the freezer. I remember there was 2 bags of ice, some hash-browns, frozen corn and something else. I knew what I would find but I had to look anyway, a puddle of water with hash-browns, un-frozen corn and a slice of oreo pie.. and a slight smell.
Well now for the fixin part. I did a search and found a link to Bryant RV Services where I downloaded the service manual for my model fridge. I shut the fridge off then turned it back on and it seams to be working. One thing it says in the trouble tree is to check for level. My trailer is high in the front from when I unhitched. It doesnt look like much of an angle but can this cause the fridge to stop working? Thanks for any help.

I think the limit is 6 degrees front to back and 3 degrees side to side...

What model refrigerator do you have, and what does the manual say 5 blinks indicates?

Model is an N61X.
5 blinks = "no cooling detected by the controls"

I somewhat leveled the trailer and the fridge continues to work.
Can you get this kind of error when not level?

As I understand it, anyway, operating an ammonia absorption refrigerator out of level can cause the refrigerant to pool in areas that it isn't supposed to, so there ends up being less in the boiler... which can cause what fluid is there to get too hot and form bits of carbon that can clog passages.

I think newer fridges are supposed to protect themselves to prevent ruining the cooling unit.

Anyhow, looking at the flow chart for trouble shooting that code, it says to check if there is cooling or not. If there isn't (and in your case there apparently wasn't) it says to check for obstructed ventilation, or out of level condition, correct that, and reset the computer, and allow it to return to normal operation...

Page 24 shows the trouble shooting chart, and how to use a jumper wire to reset the power board.

It does appear that running the fridge in an out of level situation will cause the 5 blink message and no cooling...
