Hi, anyone know how to light a "escort" fridge from an old Boler? I was just given one and Don't know what settings things should be on. Thanks!!
I have an Escort model "Mini-15" 3 way fridge
in my Boler
. The operation is from outside the trailer, in the lower vent.
Assuming that you have the same type of fridge, if your fridge is not installed in a trailer, there should be a nameplate and operating instructions on the back of the fridge at the bottom.
It has two thermostats: one for gas operation and one for the two electrical
circuits (110V and 12V). It has a two way, center off switch for the electrical
I reprinted the instructions on the nameplate for my own use. Here they are:
[b]ESCORT MINI-15 Fridge/Cooler – Gas operation instructions
- Electric switch must be in the “Off” position.
- Open gas valve. (on right gas at gas line)
- Press red button on safety valve and hold for 10 – 15 seconds (this is to clear air from the gas line).
- Light match. Press red button again and apply flame to burner. Keep red button depressed for 30 seconds or until burner remains lit after releasing.
Remarks: The safety valve will automatically shut off the gas supply should the flame be extinguished for any reason.
When using standard propane
cylinders a regulator reducing pressure to 11 inches W.C. must be fitted.
To run on electric, you would turn the gas off, then simply flip the switch the type of electricity you are using.
Hope that helps,
