    Could the thermostat be keeping it off? Serious, with those temps., the board may be fooled!!

    i have to agree with ken ,, outside temp "DOES" effect the operation of the refer ,, and as Ken said ,, due to the temps u are in ,, the refer thinks it is cold enough ,, and i know ,, me and ken are gonna get alot of "this can not happen " but IMO it does :approve: :approve:

    A few years ago I had a customer call me MAD as a hornet that his Refer. was not turning on. Had me going for a few minutes until I remembered it was 25 degrees. It was one of his first trips out and he was packing to go. No heat on and he wanted his Refer working!!! He calmed down when I explained the thermostat had it OFF.

    thx for all the help. its been warming up here in wyoming. that is above freezing during the day. my fridge started workink today. i ran it on gas for a day, and came home from lunch today to find it working. I think what happened was the line froze that circulates the ammonia. it finally thawed and presto fridge is working. when it was below 30 it must have froze lines.
