    Fridge is RM 7655L

    Last night put fridge on gas wouldn't light. After trying a verbal times it just wasn't going to light.
    So I removed burner and cleaned it out and cleaned all contacts etc and reassembled. Fridge fired up no problems so of we set. On arriving at our destination we reswitched back onto gas all good.

    But later when I went to turn it down I noticed the temperature setting control didn't turn the LEDs down so I assume it's working on max and can't be turned down.

    So has anyone any ideas ? At this moment in time its #issing down and blowing a hooley so I can't check I've knocked anything doing burner job. I'm also 99% sure I assembled it correctly. The 1% doubt is because it now has fault.

    If nobody has any ideas suggestions and I can't fathom it out could someone steer me in best direction to getting it repaired in sussex

    Thanks in advance

    I would avoid S&G, a bit slap dash, bashing screwdrivers into the side of the van & I had to show them how to do the job.

    If you are on a campsite with electric just put it on leccy until you can get it fixed.

    There's a little part behind the temp setting thats prone to breaking. Could be something as simple as that

    I am aware of S+G thanks I've see your comments on him before and someone else warned me off. Shame as he is only up road from myself.

    Mmmmm I am really hoping its something so simple. The knob didn't offer any resistance and didn't feel right. Any idea how to get to this bit ?

    I wild camped last night so can't try electric at moment. Proberly wild tonight too as currently in Winchester.

    Thanks everyone for help and advise thus far

    Lancing Commercial are going through the accreditation for Dometic service agents, last time I spoke to them they expected to ready by the end of November.
