Refrigerator stuck on propane

Hello

Just pulled up and refrigerator will not swap to shore power. Stays working on propane. Still working fine keeping things cold and frozen. It's a Dometic New Horizons. Is there a sensor that could be bad. Any ideas appreciated. Thanks.

This same happened to mine. I checked the outside outlet behind the vent cover for the fridge. I probed the outlet with a volt meter and had a 116V. reading. I tried everything else I could think of then grabbed my wife's hair dryer and plugged it into the suspect outlet. When I turned the dryer on nothing happened. I probed the outlet again and had voltage reading again. I replaced the outlet and had power to run the hair dryer so I plugged the fridge in and it immediately switched to electric.
I believe the bouncing up and down of the fridge cord wore on the terminals inside the original outlet but when I probed the outlet I was going past the worn spot.
It won't happen again. The cord is secured so nothing will move.
Worth a try.

Is fridge in 'AUTO' or did GAS get manually selected?


Gas Manually selected...it will STAY on GAS


Auto...
Will swap IF 120V AC power is actually available
Check Outlet
Check 5A glass fuse on circuit board




IF this is a New GENERATIONS RM3762 model check diagnostic mode for AC Heater Function

Thank you all. It was that 5a fuse. New fuse and working as it should. Seeing that blown fuse reminded me of an electrical problem we had a few months ago.

That 5A fuse is strictly for the Fridge 120V AC circuit .....power track on board, leads from board to element and element.
