rv fridge won't work

I have a norcold 6162, 2 way fridge it's not functioning at all. there are no lights on the control panel either. there was one wire at the switch on the control panel on top of the fridge that had 12v power. I heard they have problems with the control board on the back of the fridge. I would like to exhaust all avenues before shelling out the money for a new board.

Hello stump, welcome to our forums!

Found the problem yet?

I am not familiar with that fridge but you should first probe the power terminals on the cct board first to determine if it has power.
You don't say what two ways your fridge is powered.
Some two way fridges are 12volts/propane and others are 12/120 volts.
The second thing to do would be to check that the thermostat contacts are closed which would activate the cct board.

It is possible that if yours is a 12/120 volt one the heater element is burnt out.
