    Hi

    The fridge in my van wont run on gas anymore, was ok at the start of the weekend. The yellow light flashes as it always did when you switch to gas but it wont go steady on. The fridge no longer clicks when the ignition thingy tries to light the fridge. Any ideas on how much this will be to fix and where I can get it done

    TIA

    Just back from Peterborough, had the fridge fixed. They - Pioneer Caravans - fitted a new ingihtor box, still not working, new PCB, and still not working. Turned out to be a wire had been arcing and burnt out!!!
