    Hi, we're touring Italy in our 2012 Swift Bolero 724FB, which has the Alde heating system. Our gas is supplied by an underslung refillable LPG tank. The heating works fine on electric and for a couple of weeks also worked on gas. Now though, the 'gas out' message flashes on the control panel, even though our gauge tells us we have 3/4 of a tank left and our fridge and burners work fine. I've been through the Swift manual and have checked the manifold switches are on, the exhaust is clear and all fuses are good. Can anyone suggest anything else please?

    Don't know if your Alde system is the same as ours on top of the boiler there is a black plastic cover it comes off there is a 12v fuse pull it out wait 5 secs put it back in this should reset it.

    Strangely enough we're touring Italy as well and have a similar problem. Filled up with gas in Czech Republic and the fridge has failed a couple of times and just noticed the rings are burning yellow instead of blue. Reckon we've filled ip with some crappy gas top up tomorrow and hopefully dilute it.

    Copied from a post on another forum .....
    "Logically it sounds to me that you have one of four possible faults.

    1. Exhaust fan has stopped working.
    2. Flame failure device is faulty
    3. Temperature thermostat is out of tolerance, (faulty).
    4. Control circuit board fault.
    Faults 1 to 3 will cause the solenoid to shut the gas off."

    Deanroofing, I think you might have cracked it - checked under the black cover, there's two fuses there and one has definetly blown. Can't find a matching spare so will go looking tomorrow-fingers crossed and many thanks!

    Joyce and Brian, useful info, thanks for that, if the fuse doesn't fix it then I'll revisit your post.

    Forestboy - oh dear, we're new to refillable gas, didn't realise quality could vary. Something else to watch out for!

    Thanks again all, will update after I've replaced the fuse

    Well, changed the fuse and had fingers crossed as well but we still get the 'gas out' message and we've still got loads of gas left. Sounds like we'll have to put up with it until we get back, heyho.
