I also did a reset on in from a YouTube video I found and that did not work, I tried turning the fridge off and left it off for about 30 mins. And just turned it back on to see what it does. And the setting is on AC

Were you getting the 'No Co' error?
Otherwise a 'hard reset' was not necessary or do anything......

Have you tried running w/o thermistor connected?

Suggestions have been posted but without trying them...just going in circles/

Maybe others can help you.

We were away this weekend with the RV so hard to try different things until we get home but I did take the thermistor off the fins in the back of the fridge and sat it on the shelf, and ran on AC and it started to cool back down and was at 48 degrees and freezer was starting to freeze again and then after a couple house temps were getting warmer and I decided to to shut it off and not try and use until we get back home. Any suggestions?

I guess long story short, it’s not running correctly in AC or LP and it’s still not working with the thermistor removed from the fins :/

Force Cool test

Turn fridge off, unplug AC Power cord, Unplug AC heater element leads from lower circuit board and plug them directly into the 120VAC Outlet
Elements remain energized Force Cooling fridge IF cooling unit is capable of function (no blockages)
****Bypasses ALL Controls so monitor closely during the 12hr test

First would be to unplug thermistor causing fridge to run w/o temp sensing. BOS (Backup Operating System)
Then if not cooling down move on to force cooling test

IF fridge cools down w/o thermistor....bad thermistor
If fridge cools down force cooling...then circuit board is the problem
If fridge doesn't cool down....cooling unit is toast
I turned the fridge back on yesterday with a cup of water in the freezer, itís frozen today which has been about 24 hours of not opening the doors and being ran on AC power. The fridge is at 44 degrees. The thermistor has been off the back fins and just sitting on the shelf. I looked for the fans and they donít seem to be running? What do you suggest from here? Would we need a new thermistor? Maybe need to add a small fan? Iím at a loss :/

There is a flap on the door to the fridge connected to your left door (if it is like ours). When you open the left door, make sure that flap is also closed all the way. Then close the right door. If there is a gap, the fridge is also trying to cool your RV.

A way to test this, make the inside of your RV dark. Take a flashlight, turn it on, and put it in the fridge and close the door. Can you see any light?

This flap caused me issues for over a year before I tripped over this fix on youtube.

Good luck!

Thanks for brining this up, the Fridge Defend prevents the defrost cycle.

As opposed to the recalls, the Fridge Defend v5.x is an IEC type control that is required to do a self check every 24 hours. This self check resets the defrost cycle automatically, which corrects a lot of the hot weather issues.
The fridge just cannot recover when turned off for 2 hours be it day or night.

Let us know how your troubleshooting efforts go, we are here to help
