The max/min gas flame is for adjustment of temperature when using the fridge on gas. The next one with 0 to 7 is possibly the electrical thermostat. I am not familiar with this exact model. One of the dials will be able to be pressed in. The idea is to press and hold this button in for about a count of five, then push the lighter strike. You will hear a click noise which is when a spark is delivered to the burner area. Some fridges have a small window or guage which shows if the flame has lit. You may have to look down the chimney. You keep holding the press button down after having depressed the lighter strike button for about five seconds. This allows gas to flow to the burner while the thermocouple heats up. Once the thermocouple (which is a small copper probe sticking almost into the flame) heats up, it will keep the gas valve open and if you then release the button, the flame will continue burning. The idea is that if the flame were to blow out, the thermocouple would cool and in turn act as a safety by shutting off the gas supply. Hope this is enough info.

My Finch fridge not getting gas to the burner.


If the gas is not passing the press down valve your valve is faulty and should be replaced you should also replace the thermo coupler which goes down to sense the flame in case the flame goes out it shuts off the gas. You should not attempt to replace this valve yourself and should get a qualified gas engineer.

Basically they needed to supply an additional door mount for the left hand side of the door as well as the right hand side. Problem now sorted. Poor instructions in the manual didn't help here!

No instruction manual


The name plate on the freezer should give a model and serial number. Without it you are just chasing the wind.

The hinges at the top and bottom have screws. These may be hidden under a plastic cover which can be pried off. The water and wiring, will have disconnects at the bottom of door. Take the top ones off and lift the door up.
