3 Way Fridge

by Malcolm
(Kent)

I have just purchased a Bailey Ranger 380/2 which has on board a 3 way fridge. My towbar has two lots of electric plugs. I was told one is for the back lights of the caravan, and the other to run any electrics inside the caravan whilst towing.
When I switch the fridge on, no light comes on. Is there something to do to activate this? Any help gratefully received...

Basically, the 12N socket(black) controls the indicators, brake lights, side lights and fog lamp. The 12S socket(grey) controls the reversing lights, battery charger and refrigerator supply.

Once you have connected the grey socket, all you have to do to run the fridge is to set the fridge setting to the 12v setting. Now when you start you tow vehicle, your fridge will work.

Code 9
by: J.bray

Hello
I have a three way Thetford N180 and the gas ignites but goes out. An error 9 comes up on the display.
Any ideas please.
Thanks


I think the error code code 9 means that is no gas going to your fridge. Check that you have gas in your bottle and that all valves are open including the isolation valve to your fridge on the gas manifold. If that has all been checked and it still does not work then it could mean that theere is no spark to ignite the gas and the electrode might need replacing. Don't try an attempt replacing this yourself as this has to be done by a qualified caravan mechanic.

Can Power Surge Stop Fridge Working Electrically?

by Bryce
(Ayrshire)

We think a power surge stopped our fridge working although the green light still comes on, it still gets power but doesn't get cold. It does still work with the gas. Is there a reset button or something and how do you get into it?

The same thing happened to our friends. Although they could operate their fridge on gas, it did not work when connected to the mains. In the end they had to have the fridge element change and now it works perfectly. Your local dealer should be able to fix this for you.

Fridge Works On Gas But Not On 240 Mains

My fridge will work on the gas mode but it will not work on 240 mains. The green light is on and this tells me there is power to the fridge. Please can you advise what might be the problem.


A friend of ours had a similar problem and when he took his caravan back to the dealer, they advised that it was a faulty element on the fridge. They changed the element and now his fridge works fine. I would advise that you take your caravan back to your local dealer and ask them if that is the cause of your problem and if so ask them to rectify it.

Bailey Ranger 500/5 Thetford fridge

by Pat

The Thetford Fridge in my Bailey Ranger 500/5 isn't cooling on either Gas,230V or 12V. The gas is lighting and the needle indicator is well up in the green zone but it isn't cooling. When I try the fridge on gas the outside vents seem to be hotter than normal.
Is there any DIY repair suggestions or is it a dealer job?


We always advise that when dealing with gas or electric, you should get someone qualified to look at it. I would therefore ask your local dealer to sort it out for you. It could be a problem with the element or thermostat in the fridge.

Fridge not working at all
by: Graydon

This will happen if its been unused for some time. The liquid gas settles and compacts at the bottom. Remove the fridge and turn upside down and leave overnight, then turn back the right way, leave for an hour or so then turn it back on. This happened to mine, it now works perfectly

Electrolux 3 way Fridge RM 4200

by Tony Johnson
(Redditch)

The fridge in my caravan works OK on gas and mains electricity but does not work when switched to battery when on the move. Does anyone know what is wrong with it?


To operate the fridge whilst on the move, you must have plug a 12S Supplementary Socket wired to your car. Into this you need to insert the grey plug from your caravan. The 12S socket will operate your reversing lights on your caravan, run your fridge and the auxillary battery charger.

Fridge not working

by Mags Greig
(West Lothian)

Our fridge in our 2003 Elddis Odyssey has always worked perfectly until this time out - switched it on as per usual but simply didn't work - my husband has checked the fuses and circuit breakers - everything appears fine - there's no leakage of coolant, no peculiar smells, all appears fine - any other ideas as to what it might be before we go for a very costly replacement? Could it be a loose wire or automatic cut out? Grateful thanks for any suggestions!


It might simply be the element. These can be changed but should be done by a professional. I would advise that you take your caravan to your local dealer and ask them to check it out for you.

No Gas Opperation on Fridge on Bailey Pageant

by Ray
(France)

My fridge works ok on 12v and on 240v but won't fire up on gas. I can hear the piezo clicking but the gas does not light.


Check the manifold to make sure that the valve to the fridge is open also check that you have sufficient gas in your bottle. Each gas appliance has a seperate valve. The manifold is normally located in a base unit or at the bottom of the oven (pan draw). If this does work, I would advise that you have it check out by a qualified gas engineer.

Many thanks for your time my contact tel 07971728321, email mario.curtis@blueyonder.co.uk. Many thanks.

Fridge Door

by Mike O'Sullivan
(Southern Ireland)

I own a 1997 Lunar Jupiter SE caravan and need to replace the door on the freezer box compartment. Can anyone tell me where to get a replacement door from.

You could try contacting the manufacturer of the fridge direct to see if they can supply you with one or you could search the internet to see if there are any spare parts suppliers. Failing that you could try a caravan breakers yard. Most offer a mail order service so all contact can be done via the telephone. A list of breakers can be found on our website.

Caravan Fridge

I have a Dometic fridge and I am using it off gas but recently it keeps going out and I can hear the ignition clicking and the gas popping sound but it will not light any ideas?


It could be something as simple as your gas bottle is either just about to run out or is empty. Check your gas bottle just in case. If that is not the problem, I have to advise that any gas problems be looked at by a certified gas engineer.
