    The fridge in our 2001 Hymer, Electrolux RM4401 I think, has not been working very well on gas, so I removed the jet and cleaned that and the flue, the jet had a lot of muck in it. Does anybody know what the gas temperature control does, as it doesn't seem to change anything and the freezer/fridge are hardly doing anything.
    We're in France at the moment, it's hot but the fan I fitted hasn't been coming on, so not that hot.
    Cheers
    Nick

    How did you clean the jet? Hopefully not with a pin as that can ruin the jet completely.

    No, the jets just a pressed piece of metal, I removed it and blow it out.

    I think that will be the burner. Manic. It is on my 1999 Electrolux AES.

    The jet is normally a small brass nut affair, (just before the burner) with the tiniest of holes in it. Often you can get a build up of corrosion on the end of the jet, thereby partially blocking it. The jet has to be unscrewed and blown out as before. As a last resort, I have in the past, used a fine piece of fuse wire to clear jets on cookers and fridges in my caravan/motorhome...............but certainly nothing larger than the outlet diameter of the jet.

    Leisureshop direct sell spares for those fridges. https://www.leisureshopdirect.com/caravan-spares?fridge=RM4401

    A Dometic engineer and supplier tried to tell me that certain spares were obsolete for our AES unit :eek: whereas, Leisureshopdirect.com identified the parts, and asked me how many I wanted. :LOL:

    Good luck,

    Jock. :)
