Question about Electrolux Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a 1997 caravan in Australia, in the caravan is an Electrolux three way refrigerator, it operates OK on 240 volts, I expect OK on gas, but it isnt working on 12 volts, I checked the power supply at the rear input location and 12 volts is there with the correct polarity as it should be, its possibly 6 years since its last use where it worked OK.

Chances are the power inverter has gone,(it takes 12 volts upto 240)
easy to check,use a lightbulb and the two wires to check power output.BE CAREFULL NOT TO TOUCH THE WIRES.

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

Dometic fridge not working on 240 volts gas ok and 12 volt ok


The AC heater element is most likely open. Replace it and it will restore AC operation.

Electrolux siegen ghbh 3 way fridge model rh275 stopped working on gas but works on 240 volt


check that some bugger hasn"t turned your taps off or gas bottle -otherwise call a camper trailer dealer and ask the the best advice on what to do -might just be a blocked gas jet -but you will need a licensed gas fitter to check it for you -wont cost too much

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.

Will they work in Australia where we have 240 volts?


Yes if this UNIT has the specified mains voltage set for 240 volts then it must work in Australia.
If you have to bring up the voltage from a 120 volt supply then USE a STEP-UP transformer with a conversion factor of 120 volts in the primary to a 240 volt in the secondary.

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. 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.

Dometic Caravan Fridge 7271


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.
