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.)

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.

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

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.

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 !

Our caravan fridge electrolux rm4206 gets cold on both gas and 240v mains but does not seem cold enough ie freezer compartment is not quite frozen and fridge compartment is not cold enough. Any...


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)

Fridge not working on 12V or 220V


hi simon, i would say your ac heater is gone bad. it could have open up and no longer heating when you have a power surge . these heating elemenent are also located in the gas generator. you have to replace this heating element.
