Ok I think while we were camping this past week we lost our fridge all of a sudden everything started to get warm. We can still hear it running on both gas and electric but its not getting cold. We didn't have any strange smell come from the fridge is there something we are able to check on our end to see if an unit of it went or are we just going to be out of luck with the fridge. Any kind of advice would greatly be appreciated

Seems like that was a common problem this past weekend. Read a few posts on Lerch's FB concerning this.

Is it possible you knocked the plastic slider/ temp control out of place in the fridge?

I will check out some video's thanks for the input guys. I know took it out yesterday so we are able to get to everything in the back last night so hopefully we can get something figured out. I really don't want to have to buy another one already.

Grizzly,
First make sure the GFI outlet/fuses are not trip/blown. Make sure there is not yellow staining/ammonia smell. Sometime something as small as a spider web can make your refer and hot water heater inoperable. If your circuit/control board is out, that is a relatively easy fix. You can always remove the board and bring it to us, we can bench test the board to determine if that would be the cause.

since you have it out I would take it to a trusted dealer and get it check by a pro.I reread your post and agree with Lerch,it may be a circuit board problem.
