Does fridge work on 12 volt? If yes, 1 check and make sure you have 'good' gas. Next you can check the orvice/ignition area for any forgien matter, cobb web/spider webs must be removed. You can blow out that area with nan air hose. wear safety glasses!!! follow instruction for lighting. If you still do not have any flame you mave have a bad pilot valve.

Caravan fridge


See if you have access to a schematic on the unit itself. The fact that it works fine on gas tells you there is nothing wrong with the ammonia solution in the tubing. For that unit to work, the electric heating element has to boil off the ammonia and this is not happening. Check on the schematic if there is some kind of fuse or additional in line switch which is preventing the heating element from turning on and doings its job.

Large fridge & freezer in caravan. Works fine on mains electric but fails to cool on gas. The pilot ignites and fridge cools very slightly on gas

Ian - are you pushing the igniter button rapidly while holding the gas supply button in? This works for us. If you have any fluid in the gas line it will not light; you would need to get this checked out. Access is through the bottom outside vent. Good luck.

Electrolux fridge in my caravan will run on gas,


Hi it sounds time to pull it out and give the ignition box a good blow out to remove dust and cobwebs. Also remove the jet in the supply pipe where it screws on to burner box. Just wash and clean it dont poke anything in the jet hole. Graham

DOMETIC RM 7651l HAVE POWER AND GAS TO THE FRIDGE BUT WONT START (TWO MONTHS OLD)


Igniting a Dometic gas fridge
    Electronic Ignition
    1. Open gas cylinder or pressure regulating valve
    2. Turn on Electronic ignitor switch
    3. Turn gas control knob to the MAX position, press and hold down
    4. After ignition, hold down knob for a further 15 seconds before releasing. The neon light will stop flashing
    Piezo Ignition
    1. Open gas cylinder or pressure regulating valve
    2. Turn gas control knob to the MAX position, press and hold down
    3. After approximately 10-15 seconds
      press Piezo knob several times until pilot light a lit
    4. After ignition, hold down knob for a further 15 seconds before releasing
  1. Check the Pilot light is alight
  2. The flame can be controlled by aperture ©
    Should no ignition occur, repeat the ignition process after 1 minute
    (This could take longer than 10 seconds if the unit has been out of operation for a prolonged period or after replacing the gas cylinder. (Cause: air in the lines)
  3. Once sufficient refrigeration has been obtained in the cooling tank at the MAX position, the control knob should be turned to the MIN position by low outside temperatures or when the refrigerator is only lightly loaded respectively the ambient temperature is below +18c in order to avoid over freezing the contents.
I hope this helps you...

remove the fridge from caravan, now turn upside down and leave for as long as possible. what this does is get rid of any air locks in the gas. once left for a month or too turn back and leave for a day to setal and refit to caravan.this should solve your problem, it has been tried and tested on our caravan and worked. (This will not work on a domestic house fridge because they work on a different system)
