Refrigerator/Freezer in Fleetwood RV:
This is the typical RV Refrigerator. It will not chill down either on gas or electricity. Buttons and LEDS all look correct on either setting. When on gas the pilot and gas vent unit is working (Yes, I cleaned that out at one time to solve a blockage issue). The heating element is hot when on gas. In either circumstance the ammonia holding tank seems hot. I'm not sure if this should actually cool down when in running mode.

If it is not cooling even on gas, there is a problem in the cooling unit. Have you had it since new and has it been run when not level for any extended periods?

It is a 2003. We bought it used around nine years ago. We had one problem with it not running on gas. I did the gas maintenance 101 took the shroud off the heating unit and blew out all the rust with canned air. Bingo ran just fine.
At one point in time (two trips ago) my wife was camping in a terrible location and very much NOT level even with all leveling blocks in use. The frig would not work. I asked her if she continued to leave it on or if she shut it down. She "Thinks" she shut it down. Having said that the last dive trip in June the frig ran just fine on gas. I think I'm toast!

It has likely crystallized in the lines of the cooling system. You can try to resurrect it by removing it and turning it upside down for a few hours, then turning right side up and then try after about 24 hours sitting level. If still no cooling, I would replace the refrigerator as a cooling unit is nearly as much as a new refrigerator.

If you would be so kind, would you please remember to rate my service at the top or the bottom of the page before you leave today? If you don't, I receive no credit for my work. The deposit you placed stays with the site. You may post back at anytime with follow up questions. Please let me know how I may earn your 5 star rating! Thank you so much!
