    There is probably mention of this somewhere,,

    But,, if you run your fridge on gas for prolonged periods with the MH/ van not being 100% level, you will get a soot ball build up in the little chimney which goes hard with the condensation and after a time this will drop of, and has been known to block the jet,, :thumb:

    You might possibly be able to get to it by taking the outside plastic vent`s off,,

    If not, I am afraid it means sliding the fridge out, which in turn means disconecting the gas pipe,, but you will still need to take the vent off to make sure the alloy chimney seats properly at the top, when replacing the fridge,, so as to let the fumes out.
    If you can get to it from the outside,, dont forget to clean the old sealer of and reseal around the vent.. to stop water ingress..

    Afraid I am better at doing than explaining..:Doh:
