How do I set my chescold to freezer mode do I put the thermostat on low or high

1) always list the brand name "chescold" AND the model number when you have a hardware query. Then google both or go to the brands homepage and see if they offer support.
2) If this involves a chescold operating on bottled gas, regardless of where the thermostat is set, it will like freeze as long as the gas lasts. Yes, even if the thermostat is set to OFF. If the freezer is being chilled by electricity, the thermostat WILL determine the temperature. My best "guess" if the chescold is powered by electricity, a high setting means increasing cold simply because who would make a freezer so that if you powered it to its highest setting, it would thaw out. I generally think increasing a setting means increasing the effect of the machine, be it a freezer or a heater. But it "ain't necessarily so."
3) Usually with freezers, the "higher the number" the colder the freezer will get. But it is a gamble unless you have received proper instruction.

Rc1180 pilot light going out immediately

It sounds as if the thermocouple is bad. You can try and clean it 1st but if it is very old I would recommend replacing it. I just got 1 from Amazon it was less than 8 dollars.

Bought a chescold finch 3 way fridge but no instructions - help

The max/min gas flame is for adjustment of temperature when using the fridge on gas. The next one with 0 to 7 is possibly the electrical thermostat. I am not familiar with this exact model. One of the dials will be able to be pressed in. The idea is to press and hold this button in for about a count of five, then push the lighter strike. You will hear a click noise which is when a spark is delivered to the burner area. Some fridges have a small window or guage which shows if the flame has lit. You may have to look down the chimney. You keep holding the press button down after having depressed the lighter strike button for about five seconds. This allows gas to flow to the burner while the thermocouple heats up. Once the thermocouple (which is a small copper probe sticking almost into the flame) heats up, it will keep the gas valve open and if you then release the button, the flame will continue burning. The idea is that if the flame were to blow out, the thermocouple would cool and in turn act as a safety by shutting off the gas supply. Hope this is enough info.

Chescold caravan fridge 3 way fridge, (out on the bench not in a van) works well on 240V but not on gas. Pilot looks good, fridge is level, I have tried inverting the fridge as suggested. No luck. I can't...

Yep same prob as my Chescold model RC1180. I pulled the entire gas circuit apart as the fridge works well on 240v haven`t yet sussed the 12v.
I suspected the thermostat ( on the gas side ) there is a tiny jet on the side of the aluminium block at the base of the electric thermostat, also another springloaded 'valve' at the bottom of the aluminium block.The ' valve' is actuated by the thermostat Dial, as it screws a pin down onto a plate which departs from an O' Ring seal letting gas into the chamber where the tiny Jet is seated.This tiny Jet meters the gas to the Pilot burner.
Anyway ' That' wasn`t the problem! lol
The Problem was a 'Clogged Pilot flame Jet'
Fix..... I stripped as piece of fine electrical wire 12v and cleaned the jet out. It is a # 26.
The Jet itself looks like it has been 'Stamped' out rather than Drilled, this may account for some fridges working better on gas than others as there seem s to be some distortion on the Jet Orifice. I will buy a new Jet and a #26 drill and replace the original one.
I am just testing the fridge on Gas now...going like a Trojan... bonus is ive got a little 3 sausage hot plate over the Gas exhaust and am cooking dinner while the beer is getting colder !
