Morphy Richards Astral RV fridge

I have acquired a small rv trailer with a fridge that we know absolutely nothing about.  I have never heard of this brand of rv fridge before.  It does not work on electricity as far as I can tell.  It has two large D size batteries in it and I am not sure what they are for.  It is connected to propane and I believe that it will run off the main battery as well.  We would like to know how to go about lighting it.  We know that it has to be as level as possible before we light it and we have done that part.  As I said, we do not know anything about lighting a RV propane fridge.  Can you tell us how to do it?  Also we would like to find a manual for it.  Can you help us with this as well?  Thank you so much.

The Guest Post of May '09 is very accurate. I have a problem with the glow igniter associated with the black button. I need a new igniter and wonder if anyone knows where I can get parts. My model is a 7307 Morphy Richards Astral Frig.

I have a few parts (new) for an Astra model 'Morph' - including battery cover, gas valve (red button on front of your unit), battery holders, thermostat valve with probe as well as a used battery holder (in good shape - no issues with contact points). I also have a Piezo starter that is new and could be modified to use as a spark source.

Email me for pictures.

We have a three way fridge which runs on gas between medium and high but if you turn it down it gos out and won't re ignite

Three way fridge means it is running on Amonia. The first main thing is that the fridge has to be level properly. Otherwise Amonia cooling cycle will not work. If it is on a RV or trailer make sure the fridge is level to the ground not to the RV floor.

My Morphy Richards astral gas fridge will light just fine but will not stay lit after holding the red (disc) button even after several minutes. What is wrong? Thanks

Not familiar with this machine but found this
If you look / click at the high res versions of the pages it tells you; that you should hear a click of the safety valve after a short time lighting it. If the click is not heard, then the main gas safety valve will not open fully and the flame will go out.
This is a sure sign that the Thermostat .burner unit needs to be replaced.
See the manual pages and you;ll see what I mean.
From other postings I have seen the best place to get spares for these things is on Ebay.
Good Luck
