You CAN but it's not a good idea as the pilot light can go out which means the gas with just accumulate until lit.

I need help starting my 2001 coachmen catalina travel trailer combination gas/electric, refrigerator freezer in my camper. I have tried using all buttons on the top of it but nothing happens. PLEASE...


You need to make sure that the 12 volt "house" battery is charged. (This provides 12 v power to the control board in the refrigerator.)

Next, press and release the on/off button. You should see some indication of power on.

Then, Press the mode button several times until the "LP" mode is indicated.

You will probably need to purge the gas line to get all the air out.

Turn on the LP gas cylinder, light the cook top to make sure gass is flowing.

Hope this works for you.

Will not run only on gas but will not cool


If it works on gas and NOT electricity then the heating element is not getting power or the heating element is open. The heating element is located on the tubing just aft of where the pilot flame is on the bottom of the copper tube. You should check for power to the heating element and with power off perfom a continuity check on the element. I really do not at this time think you have a heating element problem.

There is a 120VAV element a AND a 12VDC element. The chances of both of these failing at the same time is pretty slim.

There is a note in the manual:
If the gas only pushbutton is depressed the
lamp will illuminate green and the refrigerator
will only operate on the LP gas mode, even if q
120 or 12 volts are available.

Another significant change in the third
generation A.E.S. system is how the 12 volt
heating element mode operates. As with the
first and second generation series, the 12 volt
heating element circuit is energized by the
ignition lock terminal. This terminal receives
its DC voltage from a wire that runs from the
run side of the vehicle’s ignition switch to the
refrigerator’s ignition lock terminal. This
allows the 12 volt heating element to be
energized only when the RV is traveling down
the road.
When the ignition lock terminal is energized
by the ignition key, the printed circuit board
must see at least 13.3 volts DC for a period of
40 seconds before the system will activate the
12 volt DC heating element.
If 13.3 volts is not achieved in this time frame,
the electronics will light the LP gas burner and
the refrigerator will operate on the LP gas
mode.
LOWER THAN 13.3 V.D.C. =LP Operation

If the battery voltage remains low after the
delay cycle, the automatic controls will light
the refrigerator on the LP gas mode and stay
on the gas mode until the printed circuit board
sees approximately 13.3 volts DC to the
terminal block.

For proper cooling on the AC mode, the AC
voltage to the refrigerator should not vary
more than 10 percent from the voltage rating
on the heating element. Heating elements used
in Dometic refrigerators could have a rated
voltage of 110 volts, 115 volts or 120 volts AC.
Because of this, the power requirements for
each differently rated heating element will
vary. For example, if a heating element is
rated for 100 volts, the acceptable power range
would be between 99 to 121 volts AC. If an
element is rated for 115 volts, the acceptable
power range would be between 103.5 to 126.5
volts AC. If the heater is rated for 120 volts,
the acceptable AC power range would be
between 108 to 132 volts AC.

The unit to operate on either AC or DC must have 13.3 volts to the unit. I think this is where your problem lies in that the battery voltage is less than 13.3 VDC


If all of that checks good just repsond here and I will help you. There is still more that can be checked.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Electric and battery working fine but gas will not come on. It keeps clicking and then the red light comes on


Hello,

Assuming this is on a travel trailer / RV, correct?

The red "check" light indicates that the fridge was not able to detect the presence of a flame from the burner area. This could be due to low LP gas pressure (causes different flame size), no LP gas (tanks are exhausted / turned off), damaged wiring going to the igniter / sense electrodes, defective gas valve, or damaged igniter / control board.

The fridge will not stay lit on lp while traveling.


You should not be using any gas appliances while travelling !
because the motion of traveling and movement makes it unstable and potentially very dangerous

Switch to battery and car while travelling and switch back to mains electric or lp on arrival.

How travel trailers get their Power


If the frig is a 3 way and operates on 12vdc then it would get power from the vehicle battery. Mine just operates on LP while I drive and switches over when plugged in to AC again. Eric

Problem


NEVER EVER EVER travel with the refer running on propane !!!!!!! !!!!!

The LP gas flame can be blown out by the wind and then it will try to relight. About 15 years ago I saw the results of this happening at a local truck stop on a hot 4th of July day - lots of traffic = lots of gas fumes + spark from the refer trying to relight = almost burning the truck stop to the ground with more than 50,000 gallons of gas and diesel in underground storage
I understand this is not the solution you are asking about but it is VERY dangerous !

Norcold Fridge will not work on LP gas while traveling.


One of two problems. The auto switch is bad or the lower circuit board is not doing its job. You can call norcold technical or take the board to a service center and have it checked with the tester they should have. The lower board retails for 176.00. I looked at my tech file and it is a little vague on your particular situation. If I were repairing your fridge I would take the smart route and call technical. Hope you get your problem solved. If you need more help please feel free.
