What are the defects?

The arrangement of the wiring to the refrigerator's 4-way fuse block and cover can generate heat that exceeds the heat capacity of the fuse block.

What are the hazards?

If the motorhome's refrigerator is run on 12 volts for around four or more hours, heat may build up and may cause the fuse block to melt. This increases the risk of a fire and serious injury.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should stop using their fridge on the 12 volt power source and remove the fridge fuse from the 4-way fuse box located in the battery box. The fridge can continue to be operated on all other power sources.
AMH Products will contact affected consumers in writing to request that they make an appointment to have their motorhome repaired.
