Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

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 gas flame was very large and we had to tune it so the flame was lower by turning the gas nearly of, it was after this that the fridge stopped working on gas and 12volt. I am not sure if the 12volt ever worked properly as we mainly used gas and only turned on the 12volt when we moved but we never traveled for longger than an hour. the 12volt draws power as we have a volt meter built in the camper and it shows a power drain when its turned on. thank you for all your thoughts. Regards Nic

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.

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

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.

Motorhome fridge not working on 12 volt


if you are using an amonia cherged fridge, the amonia in your system normally cristallises after not yousing you fridge forf a long period of time. try to put the fride upside down for a few hours or a day and the turn it upright again. re connect your 12v to teh fridge and it will certainly work again.

Thetford Fridge N112


There is a very likely possibility that the resistance heater for the 12 Volt side of the operation is open. This heater can be checked for continuity using an OHM meter from the terminals for the 12 volt .

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.


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.
