This Caravan is a recreational vehicle? If you have an ammonia absorption refrigerator in the unit, and you smell ammonia, your fridge is leaking. This can be a health hazard. Park the unit and get the fridge serviced, they are repairable by independant service personnel. There are only 2 in Ontario Canada. If you go to an RV shop, the will only want to sell you a new fridge.

Good luck, try a search in your area for ammonia absorption refrigerator repair in your area.

Today i found my thetford fridge in c/van not working on 240 power so i turned it on to gas and it workes. Any idea what might be the problem?


the fridge works by heating crystals that creates a gas that is the refrigeration
if it works on gas then the system is good and indicates that the 240 volt heating element is not working
find a caravan repair center and have it checked out

This is a three way fridge, the van has a 120w solar panel and 100ah battery. Can I run the fridge directly from this supply.


Sure. To see how long the battery will last, use an ammeter to measure the DC current drawn by the heat element . Multiply the current by 12 to get the wattage on DC.

Norcold fridge berps and display says No flame


check for a gas shut off inside the fridge cabinet as well. You may have to bleed all the air out of the lines before the fridge will get gas. either keep trying or run stove burners to make sure gas is working. Also look for debris inside the burn chamber near the thermocouple/pilot light.
I had rust fall from the exhaust tube and block the burner area. Cleaned it up and it works fine now.

Fridge will not work on gas


If you're sure the gas is igniting and making heat, you may have lost your refrigerant. It probably is ammonia, which smells very strong. Check your dealer for someone who can check it out.
