Fridge not working on 110 volts

On a trip this summer, the Dometic RM2193 refrigerator stopped working on shore power.  It works fine on 12 volts and propane.  I suspect it could be the 110 volt heater probe, since the chimney does not get hot.  Before I dig into this further, are there any fuses or breakers I need to check?  The breakers on the main panel are all on...I didn't know if there are any other breakers/fuses on the refrigerator itself.

Some have their own outlet...

...and can come unplugged. Check the easy things first.

Fridge on 110v

We had the same problem. It was fixed by replacing the 110v switch.

Fridge Switch

I was able to take the switch apart and clean the contacts.  The 110 element eventually burned out after I ran it for several summers as a beer fridge.  Don't do that.  The element replacement is very tedious..

Will test the fridge switch

I am suspecting that the switch could be the problem, but haven't tested it yet.  I hope it's something as simple as that.
