3-way fridge..

I have a 1981 Scamp, the 3-way fridge is the issue today. It works fine on 110v. It once upon a time worked on gas, but now it still lights, but doesn't get the inside of the fridge cold. Any ideas what the problem could be?

thanks.

Spider webs, or other obstruction to the flow of gas. Could be a faulty regluator as well. That covers about 90% of the issues.

Thanks David..
I forgot to mention that I did replace the regulator, and that didn't change anything. I can see the little flame where it is suppose to be. The flame looks no differently now than it did before it stopped working.
Any suggestions as to how to get the line 'cleaned out' or cleared of any cobwebs.?

There was some one who needed to clean out rust and stuff at the bottom of the combustion chamber.

While I have never done it my self, so for what it is worth, I would disassemble the gas train from where it connects to the fridge, right up to the burner. Clean, and reassemble. Don't use any metal objects to clean, could damage the port.
