On the back side of the refrigerator to the right you will see a couple of wires going into a metal rod that is bent. That is the electric heating element. Grasp hold of the metal/rubber booted end and see if you can move it from side to side. If it will not move then that typically means that the heating element has failed and has welded to the cooling unit. When this happened it not only could cause a short but could also rupture the cooling unit causing a loss of the hydrogen/ammonia mixture. If they are moveable then you may have a bad circuit board that is causing the unit to shut down to protect the other components.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: How many amps does a unit like this use?

According to the label (inside the hinge of the main door), it's 2.7 amps when running on 110 volts. It shows blank for running on 12 volts. However, with the anti-humidity switch on, it can use enough current to drain your battery. I was concerned about the battery draw when running the fridge on 12 volts, because the dealer told me it defrosts itself every 72 hours. Something has to control this, and probably uses some power.

I found that they rewired the 12 volt supply, red wire, thru a heat safety switch on the burner unit and it was open instead of being closed and cut off the main 12 volt supply to the control board. I connected a jumper wire around the new switch and the frig works . either the new switch is bad or too close to the heating unit.

Tuna, it sounds like your thermistor is bad. Once the fridge reaches 40 degrees, the thermistor is supposed to tell the board to stop cooling and maintain. You can test it with an Ohmmeter.
