SOURCE: change gas/110volt fridge element to gas 240volt

I don't see the need to convert from 110 to 220. If your motor home has 220 circuits then you should be able to have it wired for 110. This would be just like in any residential home. Any 220 generator will have 110 available. 220 is just 2 hot wires, where 110 is one of those same lines and referenced to ground or neutral.
Ask an electrician if you are not sure how to wire it...

Your refrigerant may have completely separated in the system. Shut of the gas, disconnect the electrical and remove refrigerator from the coach or if you have sufficient room inside set it on a clean area. This operation is what is called burping the system.
1. From the base roll it onto the door and wait five minutes.
2. roll it onto the top and wait five minutes.
3. Roll it on the back and wait five minutes.
4. Return it to the base and wait five minutes.

Reinstall it or test it on electrical. It should show signs of cooling in about 30 minutes in the freezer compartment if the system is not plugged in the boiler.

Hi My three way fridge has the same problem. Have solved the 12v problem as it was not wired to the 12v invertor. Do you have an on board battery supply? the 12v is usless and runs a battery flat in no time. Better off to use gas. Hope to have the electrician here next week to check 240v so will let you know if we find a problem. Graham.

I suspect it's either the 240V heater element or the 240V thermostat which has failed. You can test the element by identifying the wires to it and performing a resistance check. The heating element is in the metal stack in the rear of the unit. Use an OHM meter and check for resistance, the higher the better, low or no resistance means the elemnt is bad. Make sure you check all the fuses on the control board also.

The AC heater element is most likely open. Replace it and it will restore AC operation.

My fridge is a 3 way dometec caravan fridge for a 2016 challenger sport caravan, how do I put it on battery whilst towing


Speaking from over 15 years of RV experience (including 7 years of professionally delivering them from factories), truthfully, you should avoid the 12 volt function on an RV absorption type fridge. The dirty little secret RV dealers never tell you is the 12 volt function on a 3 way fridge, is not a useful option and more of sales feature. They draw a LOT of power so if you forget to switch to propane or shore power when arriving at the campsite, you will kill the house battery in no time. If you are stopped for any length of time and still hooked to the tow vehicle, you may also kill your tow vehicle battery too. And if your tow vehicle 12 volt power supply wire is not functioning properly, you will kill the house battery, while travelling. A much better solution is to pre-cool the fridge at home before departing, by connecting to the house power overnight. Put some freezer packs in the freezer compartment and they will keep the fridge cold. I know this does not answer your question, but trust me, this is the best route. Happy RVing!

check that some bugger hasn"t turned your taps off or gas bottle -otherwise call a camper trailer dealer and ask the the best advice on what to do -might just be a blocked gas jet -but you will need a licensed gas fitter to check it for you -wont cost too much

Caravan fridge wont ignite when on gas


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.

I have a 2453 150 litre caravan fridge not working on 240 but works on gas. What maybe the problem and can i get a mobile repairer


It sounds like the electric heater is not working as you say it works on gas, so the expensive bit is OK.
An appliance engineer should be able to get the spares and fix it.

I have a 1997 caravan in Australia, in the caravan is an Electrolux three way refrigerator, it operates OK on 240 volts, I expect OK on gas, but it isnt working on 12 volts, I checked the power supply at...


chances are the power inverter has gone,(it takes 12 volts upto 240)
easy to check,use a lightbulb and the two wires to check power output.BE CAREFULL NOT TO TOUCH THE WIRES.
