Ian - are you pushing the igniter button rapidly while holding the gas supply button in? This works for us. If you have any fluid in the gas line it will not light; you would need to get this checked out. Access is through the bottom outside vent. Good luck.

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

My fridge will only work on 220 volts but not on 12v or gas anymore. the fridge worked perfectly then the gas stopped working one day, i discovered that the gas pipped was blocked, after unblocking it the...


Your refrigerator has a freon that we call R-717 which is amonia. You have to heat the amonia to have refrigeration. using the 12 volt side will cause power drain on batteries. If you had to close the gas valve most of the way down this is telling me that he gas pressure regulator went bad. The 220 volt heater is still working that is why this is working. change the regulator and you should go back to gas for operation. If the helps give me a rating please. thank you.

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.

Three year old Dometic RM 2555, 3 way Frig/freezer has failed on 240VAC however works on Gas. I suspect the PCB is faulty


Hello,
My rm2555 has just failed on 240 volt. But not 12 volt.
It turned out to be the 240 volt element .
Fairly easy to replace. If you have a multimeter test the resistance, mine was open circuit.
Does yours work on 12volt?
The two heater elements (ie 12v and 240v ) are on the right when viewed from behind with four large wires coming out, plus an earth wire. There are labels on some of the wires. The 12 volt conects into a terminal connector, where as the 240 volt is fitted with spade connectors and is attached to the printed circuit board, under the white plastic cover. The elements are "L" shaped and are just pushed down in down next to each other. The cover seems to unclip fairly easily to enable removal.
Hope this helps.

Electrolux fridge in my caravan will run on gas,


Hi it sounds time to pull it out and give the ignition box a good blow out to remove dust and cobwebs. Also remove the jet in the supply pipe where it screws on to burner box. Just wash and clean it dont poke anything in the jet hole. Graham

Temperature does play a big part in the efficiency of the fridge. The condenser at the back of the fridge needs cool air flow to allow gas vapour to be converted back into a liquid.again.

remove the fridge from caravan, now turn upside down and leave for as long as possible. what this does is get rid of any air locks in the gas. once left for a month or too turn back and leave for a day to setal and refit to caravan.this should solve your problem, it has been tried and tested on our caravan and worked. (This will not work on a domestic house fridge because they work on a different system)

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.
