    At the moment the coldest I can get it overnight was 6 degrees. It's currently at 10. It's always like this whether on gas or leccie. So, a new AES fridge may be required unless anyone knows of a fix? Any good sources for getting one at a reasonable price please?

    Well a fan assister kit certainly makes a big difference but it seems as though your fridge might need attention.

    Maybe the cooling gas stuff needs refilling... my people tell me this is now "illegal" but I believe some people still do it...

    Hi
    Try removing it and tipping it upside down overnight, then putting it back in (the right way round ) and see if that helps as could be an air lock in system?

    dont rush out and buy a replacement too quick, the fridge by design is only capable of getting the temperature about 10-15 degrees below ambient temperature. thats why a fan helps by cooling the air over the heat exchanger

    even a couple of good sized computer fans have a good effect on the effectiveness of the fridge

    Hi does anyone know size of the largest fridge available for ducato. I would prefer a larger fridge and do without an oven. Any advice welcome.

    Hi Shaz,
    Ducato is only the chassis cab.
    Would need to know what the motorhome make and model is.. But as Jim says, you are better just measuring the space you have or can make available and then buying something that will fill said space (y)
