My fridge ignition was not always lighting as it should. With the lower panel off I could see that the spark was sometimes jumping across out of the side of the porcelain insulator instead of the tip (which is out of sight). I'm thinking it needs replacing but it all looks pretty rusty down there! I'm fine with taking the fridge out (done it a few times before to fit new connectors to the control unit!) but I just wondered if anyone has any tips? Also, it did also go out during a perfectly still night and then not auto-relight light. In the morning no amount of fiddling would get it to light although it did still do its slightly erratic ticking. I'm thinking it may also need a thermocouple. I'm pretty handy with a meter and spent 46 years as a mechanic so I'd quite like to fix it myself. Has anyone else done these jobs?
Hi, I’m in a very cold, windy far west Cornwall at the mo and I’ve got a huge draught coming from underneath and from the units each side of the under-counter Dometic fridge. There is a gap under the fridge and lots of gaps at the back of the units each side of the fridge, where the units are cut to fit around the wheel arch, etc. The caravan has recently come back from an insurance repair to the caravan side that meant the fridge was removed, so I don’t know whether the repairer (one of the biggest in Somerset) left something off or if I’ve just not been in weather this cold before, but my question is - will it cause any problems if I seal the internal gaps under and around the fridge, so that it’s only being ventilated at the back thro the external vents? Thanks very much for reading.
We have a dometic 7291 fridge in a bailey senator Wyoming and it has packed up. A new one is £800 which is mad, but I can't find anyone who will come and repair it. We're in Berkshire. If anyone knows of an engineer who would be able to visit and look at it please let me know! If the worst comes to it and I have to just fit a new one it looks like the fridge is too big to get through the caravan door. ....I know it sounds daft. So I'd be very glad to hear from anyone who has ideas about fixing or replacing a Dometic fridge! Thanks in advance.
