Camper fridge ignites and runs on gas then fails

Fridge is fitted in a camper van and works ok on 12Vdc and 230Vac but on gas it ignites and runs (I can hear the burner and feel the heat via the exhaust) for approx 30/40 minutes then it fails and the igniter switch clicks away but doesn't ignite. I think a reset of some sort is involved for if left switched off for a while it will restart and runs ok for the 30/40m period.

Many thanks your advice Derek

Can a dometic RF 60 absorbsion fridge be used in a camper van if gas is not connected?

google search shows that it is a 3 way fridge --12v/ mains /gas
it will operate off the battery, mains plug in ,or from a gas bottle
so --yes it will operate without a gas connection
it is not suitable for a built in application but is stand alone unit

The fridge will not turn on. Should I be turning on the 100 switch, even if the camper is plugged in, and the lights are working?

Do you mean the 110VAC switch? Unless you are running the fridge on propane, it will need something to power it and if the camper is attached to power the fridge can be run on AC.

Camper fridge

if it is a 3 way fridge pull it out and turn it upside down and leave for an hour or so and then turn back for an hour or so and continue this for half a dozen times the gas inside the pipes have seperated and require mixing up particually if it is fairly old or has been sitting for a long period as u discribed

Power in my T25 1985

Just a thought, but it might have a Leisure battery fitted and all the elec's could be run from there, check to see if the second battery is fitted and/or connected
