    If you are talking about the gas side of lit,, About the only thing that can stop it working is if your van is not nearly 100% level.

    The flame has to go up through a small tube approx 1 inch, and if it is not level the flame will hit the side of the tube and you will eventually end up with a soot ball which in turn can drop of the sides of the tube and block the very small flame jet.. If not level it will never cool/work..

    Cannot remember the workings of how it freezes on gas but not so crucial on electric.. :Doh:

    I expect some one will remember and explain.. :thumb:
