Had the 2007 5er home this past weekend to clean and inspect for camping trip this weekend. Everything great. Brought it home this am to pack for trip and the refrigerator is not working. Checked breakers and one GFI was flipped. Flipped it back on but the refrig does not seem to be cooling. Lights come on when you open the door and the "check" light is not on.Any ideas??????Help, we are leaving at 4 pm today and need to load the food.We always get great advice on this forum so bring on the ideas and thanks in advance for your help.

Are you giving it enough time to cool down using the elec? Will it run on gas?

Depending on the outside air temp it will take 2 to 4 hours beforeours starts to cool down. If it will run on propane it will cool much faster then you can switch it back to electric.





One other thing you might check is make sure the thermistor has not come out of the plastic holder that attaches it to the fridge coils inside. Ours did that and it would not cool much at all.Edited by: Hunter11

It has been plugged in to elec for about an hour now and it is hard to tell at this point if it is cooling. I may be wishing it cool at this point. Will see in another hour or so. Have not tried the gas yet. I had to leave for work but DW is home and will keep me posted. She doesn't know anything about the gas so if the problem is not fixed when I get home at noon, I will try the gas.



Thanks

The freezer should start cooling a lot faster than the fridge. If it is starting to get cool then it is just a matter of time on the fridge cooling down.
