    hi guys, we have a Thetford N145AD fridge/freezer in our van, it is a 2005 van and fridge is the led display with auto select for power. The issue is the power board is shot so we cannot use it on gas! I feel like I have searched everywhere for a new power board but cannot find one! Thetford just say they are not available anymore, I'm led to believe a factory in the US that made these had run into problems but cannot find for sure if they will be making them again. Any websites that list them when you ring they say they don't have any. The board I need it the White backed pcb board which is part number 623060

    Without this it looks like we may have to replace the whole fridge! Which are scary money! If this is the case, some websites seem to list the version after ours that is the sae grey trim with fake wood front at£750-800ish, but all seem to link to the same company that says they don't have any and to buy the new one at about £1400! This is black trimmed so as well as being a lot more £ would not look good.

    If anyone can help firstly regards the pcb board it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks, but they are all the green pcb board (different part number) which is for the LCD display N145 which followed on from my fridge. I need the LED fridge board which is the white pcb board.

    Thank you for that as it does look like the board I need. I need to investigate further after the holidays as some sites show shock but don't have stock.

    We had the same issue on our last motorhome(2004 reg) and could not find a replacement either. Because they are not made any more there was no stock left. If you find any then buy a few is my advice, you could make a few quid. Had to get a brand new fried freezer, although Thetford did give a discount on this and the dealer also paid some towards it as we had only had the van a few months.

    Paul.

    Fingers crossed I can get one so do t have to get a new fridge.

    I wouldn't count on the dealer we bought from doing anything tbh.

    If not try one of the many firms who do pcb repairs, like this one.

    Update to this is that I bought a board from the link jap posted on post #4 from Jasicamp, they were great to deal with and if any of you out there have an older Thetford N145 fridge that requires the white backed pcb board, then this looks like one of the only places you can get one. This board is for the LED display auto power select fridge. I recieved the board recently and Stuart from Bee Serviced who is a thoroughly nice chap fitted it today and my fridge now fridges! This pleases me as the alternative was to buy another whole fridge, them suckers ain't cheap!
