My fredge rm 2652 not working

My fredge is not working neither on a/c or LPG. No leak is present . I think is the circuit board in the back part. No flame is present when change to LPG. Fredge was working on a/c and apparently a power failure occurs and not work after that. 
I try to verify the circuits in the circuit board but there are sealed . fuse are ok.
any idea?
Refrigerator Model no: RM 2652
Refrigerator prod. no: 921144002

    I have the same situation as gojoe21 Unit was working well and then stopped getting cold. I unplugged the unit and can hear the gas kick in, but it still is not getting cold. All fuses look good.

You need to check your fuses on the fuse panel inside your coach. The frig will not operate on gas or electric without 12 volt power to the frig circuit board.

    To JC Brady
    What fuses did you check. On the service panel or on the back of the fridge?

Between 1993-1996 dometic used a yellow epoxy filled circuit board that went bad pretty quickly if you have the yellow filled circuit board rather than the green one it is most likely the circuit board

I have a dometic rm 2652 in a 2003 travel trl. The propane side works. The elect side quit working. There is power to plug. The lights for auto and fridge inter. also work. The two fuses are good.

Unplug hydro plug to fridge. Remove cover on circuit board. Follow wires from heating element, to terminals on circuit board. ( probably J7 and J8 ) . With an AC volt meter or multimeter set to AC voltage, turn fridge on hydro, and leave door open on fridge so that it calls for cooling. To be sure it's calling for cool, try gas first, when it's starts, you know it's calling for cool, then switch to AC operation. Now test for voltage at the 2 terminals that the heating element were/are attached to. If you get 100-120 VAC, then replace the heating element. If not get back to me and I'll walk you through a couple more tests.

Refrigerator for lp-gas and electri operation RM 2652 RM 2852 It will not light on gas or electric

SOLENOID VALVE Check the solenoid coil with a properly calibrated ohm meter. Remove the connector from the solenoid and measure the resistance across the terminals. The proper reading would be 49 ohms with tolerance range of ten percent. . . Next, hook up a manometer at the test port. Then check for DC volts at gas valve terminals while the unit is in trial-for-ianition. If DC volts are present and pressure is low, replace the valve. If DC volts are not present at the valve while the unit is in trial-for-ianition, verify that the wire at Plug 3, Terminal 2 on lower circuit board have DC volts v (9V or more)
IGNITER First verify proper voltage at the positive (+) and ground (-) terminals of the ignitor. The reading should be within one volt of incoming voltage at the main terminal block during trial-for-inanition Next, remove high voltage cable from igniter. The igniter should produce a sparking sound, during trial-for-inanition. If not, replace the igniter. The igniter installed on the refrigerators as original equipment is part number 2931132019 (RV Gas Model 679). This igniter is rated 50 MA. This igniter may also be used on any other model
Hope this helped

Rm 2652 stays on a while then cuts off and stays off

If you have the yellow epoxy filled circuit board from around 1993-1996 rather than the green newer one you can see the circuits on (take the black cover at back of fridge off to check) it is most likely just a bad circuit board. Otherwise it is most likely low voltage or a bad ground on the 12volt power coming into the fridge. Also make sure your thermostat(if available) is on maximum during testing.
