    We are in Spain at the moment using Spainish gas butane,it runs ok all day then between 2-3 am goes off and the alarm comes on,we put back on gas in the morning and it runs fine ,the outside temp has not dropped below 10c,the fridge was cleaned just before we left the UK any suggestions.

    Had a similiar problem a few years back, during day all worked ok on gas, then as has happened to you, about 2am fridge alarm goes off, you have probably got a gas regulator that is "sticking" and it takes a few hours with little use of gas for it to eventually close and stick shut until you give it a kick in the morning, we changed the reg and all was ok.

    We just had our MoHo back in for some snagging to be done and one was the fridge wouldn't run on gas. It turns out to be the "12volt/230volt/gas switch that wasn't allowing it to run on gas.

    All fixed now cleaned out jet with a small wire put thermal heat element closer to the flame, runs a treat.
