SOURCE: Thetford Fridge N112

There is a very likely possibility that the resistance heater for the 12 Volt side of the operation is open. This heater can be checked for continuity using an OHM meter from the terminals for the 12 volt .

Try manually lighting the pilot when it is clicking. If it lights you need a new thermo couple let us know what you find out from this step

SOURCE: thetford caravan fridge freezes all food in fridge

Thats a Norcold compact fridge. The most likley problem would be the thermister. Need to do an ohms reading. From inside of the fridge remone the thermister from the fins and unplug the wires. With a VOM set it on Ohms, touch the wires with the probes/ does not matter which probe to wire/ hold the bulb end of the thermister between your fingers, your reading should stat at about 7000 Ohms. Stick the bulb end of the thermister in a glass of ice water, reading should start climbing and go to about 22000 Ohms. If this happens the thermister is good and you need to look elsewhere. If it does not test out you need to replace the thermister. The thermister is a thermostat that controls the heat source that makes the fridge cool. If the thermister reads good you may want to get the circuit board tested.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: fridge will not work on gas

If you're sure the gas is igniting and making heat, you may have lost your refrigerant. It probably is ammonia, which smells very strong. Check your dealer for someone who can check it out.

Today i found my thetford fridge in c/van not working on 240 power so i turned it on to gas and it workes. Any idea what might be the problem?


the fridge works by heating crystals that creates a gas that is the refrigeration
if it works on gas then the system is good and indicates that the 240 volt heating element is not working
find a caravan repair center and have it checked out

I have a thetford N80 fridge fitted in my motorhome that pops the rcd until I cool it down using gas


it is drawing too much current and is a fire risk
there is a live wire touching the metal frame or the motor has locked up.
the rcd is saving you from having a fire or being electrocuted
can you find a local dealer who can diagnose/repair?
