    Our fridge worked well until one gas bottle ran out of gas.(manual changeover valve, gaslow)
    turned the second bottle on now fridge doesn't work.
    It just keeps on clicking trying to light.
    I switch it off to test for a while to try and reset itself but no it still won't work
    Cooker works so gas is coming through.
    Is it just coincidence?
    The surround of the fridge seemed to get warm yesterday but I thought it was just working harder because for the warm weather.
    Any ideas please?

    If the cooker is working the Gaslow changeover valve is working too. (I presume you have turned off the valve on the empty bottle?)
    The fridge problem sounds like a faulty igniter unit or a blocked jet. When did you last have it serviced?

    Coming up to its service booked in 29 July.
    Cooker stop working now. Methinks is the gas supply. Maybe emptied the 2 bottles unknowing to us.
    Going to get a refill now

    Filled up and all working. Manual changeover valve can't be working.
    The original full one is now on and working. I got the recently filled up one as the back up bottle now. Weird

    Remember to keep the backup one closed at the bottle valve, then you will know that its full and available once your main one runs out :BigGrin:

    Same thing happened to me. I thought I had one bottle in reserve only to find when I opened the bottle valve it was empty ? Sorted now, both bottles filled and one shut off. Usually works a treat ! Must have had a senior moment.
