The 12v is only supposed to work when your engine alternator is running as this as you have stated is a big drain in the 12v system. It will only normally switch on when your ignition light has gone out and the engine alternator is charging.

the most comon problem is the ice machine in the freezer actuates at low teperatures. actuation is when the unit goes into harvest the ice. if your freezer is not aciving low enough temperature the ice machine stops working ' check to ensure the condensor under the fridge is not pluged with dust .Also make shure there is adiquit air flow around the ice machine. hope this helped someone .

SOURCE: no cooling on 12v or gas

Hello,Depending on the age of the unit, it could have a compressor going bad on it, as the compressor gets hot the valves may not be seating correctly or may be burning out.
You may have also lost some refrigerant, but I am going to lean more to a bad compressor.
Thanks

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 have just purchased 3 new Philips MR16 10w LED lamps to try in existing 12v 50w fittings - each with its own electronic dimmable 6o v/a elec t/x. As soon as the lights are switched on with the new lamps...


The LED light bulbs operate at 3 to 5 V usually. The noise your hearing is a result of the voltage reduction within the internal workings of the lamp base. The lamps should be installed with an
LED driver vs a transformer power supply.

This is usually on most packaging:

LED MR16 lamps operate in the same fittings as regular 12V lamps. However, they work best when they are mated with an led driver in place of the transformer.
Example of an LED driver:
http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&safe=off&rls=com.microsoft:en-ph&q=LED+Driver&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=16162019396751156854&sa=X&ei=HzQpTqOWOK_NmAX0-LWqDA&ved=0CEcQ8wIwAg#

The noise will not go away unless you use an LED driver with the MR16 lamps.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

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.

LP 240 stopped working. No lights, no fans, nothing.


Please describe the status of the LED indicator. No LED would indicate a failure of the power supply. I can help you with that.
Flashing red would indicate a fan/lamp problem. Some lamps fail prematurely before the lamp hours are up.
If it is the power supply, no lights at all, I can get you running again. These units have fragile power supplies that can burn out with the slightest power surge. A UPS goes a long way to save future headaches.
