It should be up front in the battery compartment.

Ditto, should be as close to the batteries as they can get it.

Samsung residential refrigerator did not work when on battery

We moved our new 3791RD and the refrigerator did not run until we were plugged into shore power again. I pushed buttons on the inverter located in the front belly but that did no good. It was dead until I noticed our shore power was not plugged in correct. AS soon as I plugged it in all the way the refer started right up. Any idea how to keep the refer running.

Make sure your battery switch is on - with an inverter you sometimes have two battery switches. One would be in the convenience panel - if the key will pull out your battery is disconnected. If you have a second switch it would be between the battery and inverter.

There is a round looking battery switch for the inverter. It is located above and to the left of the battery. If the inverter will not turn on, make sure you can see the green indicator on the switch.

Ok, in the same boat. When I have the 3701LK parked in the driveway, plugged into shore power the refrigerator stays on. If I turn off the breaker in the breaker box (15 amp) right below the Main 50, half of the items like the chairs turn off, the overhead ceiling fan wont work...……… What am I doing wrong? or is it just my lack of knowledge?

Most of the inverters factory installed for the residential reefer will only power the reefer. Depending on the size of your inverter it could be rewired to power other circuits. Would need a 2000 watt inverter to make that worthwhile.

We had a similar inverter issue.. inverter would run, however, no power went to fridge... On shore power, no problem....
Service Tech said it was a loose wire in the outlet at the fridge.... OK now.....
