Well I wanted to give back to the forum. I had 2 fridge
issues and I worked thru them - just wanted to share with the community in case anybody else can find the info useful.
Rule of thumb - if the fridge
cools in ac but not gas, or gas but not ac - the unit does not need replaced! Find the specific ac or gas issue - but the fridge
itself does not need replaced.
First problem - Last year I kept having issues in 110v. It was blowing the breaker on whatever I was plugged into. Or tripping the ground fault. I plugged the fridge into a separate extension cord and it worked! Narrowed down to the problem being the Casita
, not the fridge! After looking around and seeing my rv outlet being kinda black, I tried the easy step first - I replaced the 110v outlet behind the lower cover the fridge plugged into. Problem fixed!
Second problem - fast forward to this year. Fridge cools great (34*) on a/c but only cools to (48*) on gas. Check the flame. It burns fine I think. I blow out the burner with compressed air to clean it. No luck. Next I take out the orifice and clean it with a spray "electronic cleaner" which is fast evaporate. Hole looks clear. Blow out burner again. Put her back together. No luck! Take burner completely off! Clean it to like new! Reinstall. Flame still, but (48*). No luck! So next I look at stove - I notice burner flames are ok, but not so big. I decide $50 is better than a service call. I replace the LP regulator between the LP tanks on the tongue with a new regulator. Big flames on stove, and fridge cooled down to (33*). FIXED!!
I hope this helps! They are easy DIY fixes before you take her into a repair shop!
