A simple remedy to the fridge working correctly.
I wasnt aware that the mains dial turned fully to an 'OFF' position. Once I had turned the dial until it 'clicked' off, I tried the gas and it lit and cooled perfectly.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: my fridge will only work

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.

Hi just bought campervan which has an electrolux rm 2200 fitted we are unable to use it on 12v but works well on mains.


was the engine running on vehicle when you tried to operate 12v mode. From the user manual it needs the fridge cooled down on gas or mains first and it will only operate at 12V if the engine is running to prevent vehicle battery running flat.

My caravan fridge will not work on mains or 12 electric but it dose work on gas


The 12v power supply on the fridge takes a lot of power, and can only be used when you're driving. (When the engine runs.)

We have a 1993 Wilderness RV with a Dometic refrigerator, brain box being of Dinosaur brand (which is ok - reaching 120 volts) Our question is on the front freezer door of the fridge is a strip plate...


Hi

Most of these mobile refrigerators can run on gas, 120v or 12v, your gas option is obviously OK, there should be electrical connections on the back of the unit which identify which cable are 12v and 120v.

Again most but not all units were multi option.

You will need to connect these points to the supply. To run this on mains 120v you will need to switch off the gas and 12v, similarly for 12v, no gas or 120v, and for gas no12v or 120v.

If you get the fridge to run on 12v remember that if it is on overnight it can reduce the battery charge.

The best options for these is gas or 120v when you have a mains hook up

Hope this helps

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.

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 rm2652 frige just stopped working, gas nor


Check 12V supply and fuses on lower board. If display functions okay, then look for yellow residue on back of refrigerator near burner. If yes, then cooling unit has leaked and needs to be replaced. See if recall kit has been installed, and check for 12V at both sides of limit switch. If no power on either side, then thermal link has blown, and need to be replaced, If 12V on one side, but not the other, than limit is tripped, and needs to be reset, by pushing button, or if not resetting, then replace, Check for obstructions to the bottom and top vent to make sure they are not blocked, On models with top side vent, check cooling fan for proper operation.

Hi i have a 3 way electrolux fridge. it cools perfectly well on the electric mains, I've not tried the 12v, but it fails to cool on the gas. The gas ignites but fails to cool the system.

I wasnt aware that the mains dial turned fully to an 'OFF' position. Once I had turned the dial until it 'clicked' off, I tried the gas and it lit and cooled perfectly.
