    Good Evening -

    I just today noticed that the 120 v switch on the back of my 3 way fridge will not turn off. I have tried many things (turned off shore power, turned off breakers, checked all fuses, used electronic cleansing spray) but still no success.

    It will rock toward the 'off' setting but simply will not catch or stay off. The 12 volt switch will rock and lock in both the on and off positions (I know only one is to be on at a time but I wanted to see if the whole thing was seized).

    Any insight on how I can tackle this issue is most appreciated.

    Cheers,

    JPM

    Mine does the same thing. I happen to have a plug from the fridge to a socket by the switch. I just unplug mine.

    Welcome to the Portal from South Carolina. Replace the switch.
