SOURCE: fridge wont get cold with gas

This is worth a try. Disconect the gas and power make sure the pilot light is out. Turn the fidge unside down overnight then unright again. Try it on gas agian. This worth a couple of goes before giving up.

SOURCE: My 3-way Dometic fridge works on gas but stopped

With the 240V element diconnected, test it with an ohm meter to find it was open circuit. No heat! The 12v element still had resistance.
At the moment gas is still keeping my cool while I wait for a new element to arrive. ..... cheers

I have acquired a finch b533g 3 way fridge but without instructions. Can anyone help with simple steps for 240v and 12v . The gas is covered by factory stickers. Thanks in advance

have short preview for it:

and i think this will be best manual for it:,d.dGc

hope this will help you - do not forget to vote...

Electrolux 3 way fridge will not work on 12v or 240,switch lights up, ok on gas. can i repaire?or have i got to replace? i think the model No is rm4200 or rm4230

Hi My three way fridge has the same problem. Have solved the 12v problem as it was not wired to the 12v invertor.

Not sure if it applies to your exact model, but if there is a company who just makes replacement control boards for Dometic fridges, that is a big fat clue, in my book. Cheers.
