hi there, my 1995 Eurovan, the Westfalia one with the top load Dometic RC 1140 fridge, has stopped working. The controller seems fine, no flashing or anything, and the fuses check out.

It seems to just not be running. The repair shop says they need to take it out but it might cost me as much as $400 to fix.

Any experience with this? Other option is to look at replacement but is there a fridge that will fit in the same spot?

My concern is paying quite a bit and then it fails again and I wonder if replacement is the better route to go?

Thanks!

Or should I leave it as-is and just buy a portable 12V fridge like a Dometic CFX?

I believe I saw a direct factory replacement in Germany. Wasn't cheap though. Unfortunately, I misplaced the link.
