Gas heating stopped working in auto cruise alto. Checked fridge and although I could see the pilot light , fridge was not cold . Gas hob worked but when I tried to use the grill at the same time it was spluttering. New gas bottle , all connected correctly, am I doing something wrong? Any suggestions appreciated. J

When you say new gas bottle, how new and how big? It’s obviously shortage of gas pressure so going to be nearly empty bottle or a blockage maybe in regulator,

JAT...

Are you using Butane (blue bottle) or Propane (Red bottle) ? or are you on Autogas (refillable)

as the ambient temperature drops blow 10c Butane gas production drops off significantly until it eventually stops boiling at -2 C

you should be using Red bottle Propane for winter.. or Autogas (Propane).

If you know that and are already using Propane, then sorry for teaching you to suck eggs.. you have a regulator problem .

Buy one off the Internet its only a few minutes job to change one. Bit of soapy water round the joint to check for leaks and away you go. Why pay the Dealer prices.

Ours failed on holiday in September and as we were driving through Thirsk, we spotted Autogas 2000. We pulled in, what a lovely couple, couldn't have been more helpful and we bought a replacement (not Truma) for just over £24.

Ift is likely the Crash Sensor that has failed on your regulator.

If you get somebody to hold in the green button try your hob and heating, you might find it will work.

If it does, get a cable tie and use something like a small nut and tighten the cable tie around the nut so that it depresses the and holds in the green button. This will keep the gas flowing.

You then have 2 choices.....
1. Leave it as it is just remember to turn off gas when travelling
Or
2. Get a new one fitted.

Lot depends where it is situated and which gas you are using. If you use refillables then their is something extra in the gas that can clog the regulator. Putting the regulator as high as possible helps to stop the goo getting into it. You can also fit a filter but then you have the cost of replacement elements. I bought a spare earlier in the year before we went to Spain just in case we had problems.

Hi Qfour, can you tell me where you purchased your spare from? Thinking about getting one just in case I need it at some point.

Is Truma that bad? Or is that it is a very common make, so proportionally more problematic?
If not Truma, which make would you suggest?

Sorry to be a pest, but can I ask again? Are Truma regulators renowned for being duff, and if so, what is a better make to put in?
