We are due to go to France/Germany on 19th and Fridge is not working on gas and less than adequate (-5 degrees freezer and 8 degrees fridge) on electric. Gas takes 90secs plus before it holds the flame and although the flue has the heat and smell I am used to with a working fridge not a lot of cooling is happening.
Trying to get someone to look at it before 19th but all we can find via internet searching is people who cant look at it until August.
Can anyone recommend any Engineers? (pref in south east but willing to travel)
Thanks

I will be taking a look today to see what I can do myself. On ours I have to move the fridge out to get access to the burner. Thanks

The Vents don't quite give enough access so will have to move the fridge out.
Premier are booked up (as are everyone it seems)

We ended up buying a new fridge which we had fitted yesterday by Darren from The Motorhome and Caravan Shop based near Bognor - he came to us and did a great job - treated the Motorhome with respect which means a lot to me.

Thanks Gary - we enjoyed the holiday in spite of not having a fridge working on Gas. We bought a temp fridge box which ran on Mains and 12v and has become my manfridge at home. Ironically we are trading the Sunseeker in at the end of the month (if we dont sell it in the meantime) having fallen for a Bessacar E795.
