I have a Explorer gas fridge that the temp will only get down to about 40 degress....was wondering if anyone knew what was up with this? It surely isn't the norm. It was given to me and is only a few (maybe 5 to 8) years old. Any suggestions would be appreciated...Thanks :0)
I have a 12 cubic foot explorer and have found that if the burner is not keep clean the effiency will go down. I also found that adjusting the flame to the lowest temp does not keep the fridge the coldest. Adjust the flame until you get an even blue flame with minimal yellow in it.You make the adjustment with the temp control.Also clean the chimney, I use a gun cleaning kit.

Check temp setting. Freezer temp is -14*f to 8*F and Fridge temp is 36*F to 46*F As per your statement seems to be chock in thew system. Check for whistling sound in freezer. If not check gas pressure by keeping arm in condenser coil. If warm, gas is o.k. but chock is confirmed. Remove all gas, flush out system. Vacuum and do gas charging. Thanks.
Usually from the Bottom of the refrigerator you should have minimum of 43f or colder than ambient. Should work very close to same on both gas and 110, on Dc it may not cool as good. From your description you may have an issue with ventilation. Cold air needs to flow in through the lower vent and out through the upper, if it cant, cooling efficiency is lost. Adding a fan kit can help on hot days. On gas you may have particles that fell down in the burner. Just take the cover off, take the burner screw out and blow down into burner to clean out. compressor or canned air works fine. If cleaning the burner doesn't improve it enough on gas to match electric you have to make sure your regulator on your rv has enough pressure... the fridges require 11 inches of water column.
This is worth a try. Disconect the gas and power make sure the pilot light is out. Turn the fidge unside down overnight then unright again. Try it on gas agian. This worth a couple of goes before giving up.
