Dead Norcold Refer

My four door Norcold has been working perfectly but today it died. I moved my coach and washed the exterior. When all finished I noticed the refer was dead. No power no LP. I have checked the refer circuit breaker, OK. Replaced the 10 fuse just for drill, no deal. Looking in the refer compartment on the outside there is a red light on but nothing to reset that I can see. Any ideas where to look to get this baby working again? Any ideas what could cause it to just stop working.

You probably got the over temperature safety box wet when you washed the coach. Open the louvered door outside (this is where the box got wet) and locate the box with the red light. Get a good magnet and slide it around against the outside of the box below the light and you should hear a "click" that has reset the safety. After that, you sould be good to go.

Maybe, maybe not. Ours finally refused to reset. You can bypass it and run the frig until you fan get a new one.

Try the reset first for safety then if that fails you have to bypass until you get a new black box. I know not to hose the refrigerator vent panel on mine when washing cause it will trip the box.
