Fridge board fuse replacement?

Attached photo is of the board for the fridge, behind panel on outside of trailer. The fuses appear to be surrounded by a rubber cover. Does this cover pull off? Need to know how to check and replace them if bad. I have a ohm meter to check the fuses. Thanks.

The covers should just pull off.
Then remove the fuse and check one at a time. I can see the clips so they are removeable. Just because you can see a wire inside the glass does not mean it is ok. If you have a buzzer setting on your meter then select that. Hold the two probe ends together and if there is a buzz then you are ready to test. Put a probe on each end of the removed fuse and if it buzzes, the fuse is good. Move onto the next one.

If you don’t have a buzzer mode...we can explain the ohm setting mode.

You're saying the blue rubber covers "should just pull off"? I gave a little tug but didn't want to tear something up. Thanks.

Yes...work them between your fingers starting at one end down towards the other end to break the surface tension between the cover and the fuse. If it is really cold out you may need to use a hair dryer to get them flexible. But donít heat anything up to the point that it is anywhere near to hot to touch.

Update: The fridge is working now. I had a service tech come out to check things out. He was coming to my area anyway so he dropped by the storage facility. He checked the outside board first and said all looked OK. He then went inside the trailer, pushed some of the buttons and no lights as before. He tapped on the Eyebrow board and the lights came on. Said sometimes moisture can prevent a good connection, especially after one sits up without being used. I will check it in a day or two to make sure the fridge is working before giving it the final OK. Thanks Eggscape.
