    Murvi recommended me this guy in Exeter as a fridge expert.

    Phil Chapman 07900 297 879

    I haven't used him myself directly but Murvi got advice from him to sort out a problem I had on my fridge. I believe he has a reasonable call out charge.

    Just checking that the gas supply is on to the fridge, that the trip swich for mains power is live and the 12v supply fuse is intact (there may be a separate fuse at the leisure battery control panel for the fridge). Any indication of power getting to the fridge at all?

    No power getting to the fridge or the oven which needs electricity ignite the gas.

    you say the oven not working.check the igniter fuse as the fridge may be on the same fuse and if the igniter is not working the fridge won't operate

    Are you level, seems to make a lot of difference to some fridges.

    But that wouldn't explain the oven not working or would it?

    Probably need 12v for any of the power sources to work so i would check that first unlikly to be a gas problem as the mains should still work

    What great lot of MH Funners we have on this site. All your suggestions were excellent and with your help and advice I have been able to find the fault. The fault was near the fridge burner unit, one of the cables had worn through and just needed connecting to each other.

    Thanks again
