I am assuming the switch you are referring to is the thermostat.

unplug the unit.
get a lubricant of WD-40, spray it inside the thermostat to lubricate the mechanical parts inside which is getting sticky.

then test it again. if it won't fix the problem, then replace the thermostat.

tnx 4 using fixya,

2003 wildwood Le trailer how do we light the gas on the refridgerator??? Did not come with manual.


Your fridge should have a switch for propane/electric/automatic. This is usually located above the fridge door & just below the freezer door. When on propane the gas will feed directly to the fridge there us no need to light it! However the propane needs to feed from the large propane tank usually mounted on the tongue of the trailer to the fridge....this takes some time . We usually light our drove first then wait a few minutes & then turn on the fridge. Please know that it takes a few hours 10-12 fir the fridge to cool down to acceptable temps.
Now if u do all the above u may have a blockage (mud dauber) in the propane line - which u can usually access thru the fridge access panel on the outside of your trailer. Bees seem to be drawn to the Oder if propane. Make sure prolate tank is shut off! Take a small brush & clean the inside of the propane line & then start from the beginning.

When the switch is set to electric, you should notice the fridge getting colder in a few hours. Again 10-12 hrs before it us acceptable to place food in it.

When the switch is in the auto mode it will automatically switch from electric to propane when you lose electricity for any reason & back to electric is you run out of propane - or shut it off.

Oh one last thing you must have your battery on in order for the fridge to work!

Good luck!

My husqvarna 61 inch lawn mower will not stay running


Did you check the oil? Some engines have a low oil shut off switch to prevent the engine from running out of oil and burning themselves up. If it is low in oil and all the oil is up in the engine to lubricate, then the switch may be setting itself off. After a few minutes, the oil comes back down to satisfy the switch and it starts back up, but only till the switch is activated again. Might do it???

Starts then dies & won't restart


check fuel pressure, should be 40 psi.
try 2 things

spray starting fluid in air intake to see if it will stay running. It's fue then.

Try turning key to on nd wait 5 seconds for system to build pressure and pump to shut off. Turn key off, wait for relay clcik noise or 10 seconds. then turn key to ON again and wait 5 seconds to build pressure again. Then start engine. If it starts better, you have a bad check valve in the fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator on the fuel rail (unlikely).

Could be so many things, I know on modern Harleys there is a shut off relay that turns off the engine if the bike is on its side. If that switch goes out, the motor won't run. Probably have to take it to the dealer.

Replace pressure switch. If you blow any air into the pressure switch it has been damaged,check air ports for debris by looking never ,never blow on air switch they work on a very small pressure or vaccum,where your breath is to much pressure and also loaded with unwanted humidity.
