Smile Fridge question - bad fuse?

I noticed the light inside of our refridgerater seemed dimmer to me than normal. It could be that I just remembered wrong, but I dont think so.

Last weekend we went camping. Temps were almost 100, so that might have had something to do with it, but our freezer was having a hard time freezing the popsicles I put in it. My mom thinks we just were not level. But even if we were not 100%, it was pretty close.

Now I am wondering, do you think maybe somehow its not getting enough electricity?

That would explain the the problems. Should I try replacing the fuse? When I open the fuse panel, all of the switches are in the correct spots. What about those multicolored plastic things though? Could one have gone bad?

Thanks for your help!

You need to remember the fridge in your camper is not the same as the one in your house. Every time the door is opened cold air drops out the bottom. So if the door is opened and closed a lot especially on a hot day the fridge cannot keep up. It takes about 4 hrs to cool to proper temps. A habit we have in our house is indecision, so we stand and look into the fridge trying to decide what to get. Finally a solution for my house was to put all of our drinks ( pop,koolaid,juice drinks water ) anything that we get often in a cooler with ice. Put fridge off limits. Hope this helps. I think the fridge is working fine.

Takes 12volts to power Circuit board....was your battery up?
Those plastic things are 12 volt fuses.....they will have a number on the face of them indicating their rating....some fuse panels have red led lights in them so when a fuse blows the light will light and you'll know that the fuse is bad.....need to check battery voltage with a meter..
