    Can any funster please help. My fridge has decided to malfunction on gas operation. It's fine on electric. My motor home buff in the UK is convinced it is the thermo coupling. This van fridge hasn't been used on gas so it appears to have seized. Can anyone suggest a reliable repairer near Guadamar.
    Many thanks in anticipation.

    Just in case you have not already, take the cover off and make sure a bit of rust has not dropped down and covered the jet...

    I doubt if it has not been used the Thermal Coupler would be duff..

    Even if it has not beeen used on gas, some rust will acrue in the chimney and as said a bit may have dropped down... only takes a small particle..

    some fridges are very sensitive to level siting and may not work if not level (enough)

    Thanks. Have had chimney and igniter cleaned. It fires on gas but only runs for 4 minutes. According to the Dometic guy in the UK this is a thermo coupler fault. I need a new Unit fitted while here.

    Can your Dometic guy not recommend someone? They must have a European network.
