Default Autotrail Tracker EKS SE (( Snags))

Hi Folks..Finally got the above van and there are a few little probs and I would be most grateful if someone could shine a light into my dark world...
1. Peizo ignition for the cooker and hob rings won't work.

2. Fridge won't light on gas.

Any pointers will be very much appreciated.. The van has only done 950 miles so It may be lack of use, even though its 2 years old...

I look forward to your replies... Mitch and Jenny..

Ok, Cant help with the first one but will give some help with the second.

This is a common thing with a lot of Vans, shown to me by Ash when having had problems with mine.

Behind the bottom firdge vent, if you take it off from the outside ie the striker from the gas. For some reason and unbeknown why, it some times move so teh ignitior is too far from the pilot striking light. a little screwdriver very gently to re-introduce them to each other normally solves the issue with out a problem. It has to be done gently and without moving that bottom fridge vent, what im saying will make no sense whatsoever.

To remove teh outside fridge vent there should be two catches that simply slide inwards and then allow for the release of the vent cover, then have a look at it and all will make complete sense.

As for the first problem, mine never ever has worked on any van, well not consistantly , the best present I ever got was from Mrs Tick59 a lighter thingy, you know the sort i mean.

I know mine is a totally different van, but my igniter works from a 12v supply and unless 'Aux1' on the control panel is on the igniters do not work.

Most fridges and some cookers require a 12vdc supply to operate the igniters .. with both not working I suspect it's either switched off at the main panel, or a common 12v fuse blown.

Good points .. I am assuming there is no 12v problems and with your cooker, have.a Look and see if you can see e igniter actually working but just not lighting the cas

Hi Guys

If the 12v control panel above the door is not switched on peizo ignition will not work

Enjoy the Tracker, and if we can be of assistance just ask

Check that the gas is turned on to the fridge at the internal gas cock and that you give it time to purge air from the pipes.
