Can you give a little background?

What kind of fridge do you have? Does it normally run on propane and/or 110? DC, too?

What have you tried that has failed?

Don't laugh, but some of us have been known to try lighting ours when it wasn't set to GAS. I doubt that's your problem, but there are so many variables, I'm sure someone can help you troubleshoot it, if you can provide a little more background info.

Thanks! :cblob

dang fridge

Make of fridge- Tedco
model- 202TW
gas and electric - DC/AC

other than playing with the different settings and the gas and electric hook ups- that is all I have tried- My family is afraid I will get playing around and blow myself up -- I say "pish posh" but I'm not sure what to try next--

Howdy, Curious if you have been using the trailer and then found that the fridge didn`t work?? Ours stopped working last year when I tried it in the yard and a friend said to take it for a ride and then try it part way through the drive and Kazam, it worked fine. Probably the sam effect as taking it out and turning it over... or tapping on the coils. Try a bumpy road first...May work...Benny

So, you've tried lighting it on propane and it won't light? Or it lights but doesn't cool down?

Is there any kind of ''ammonia smell'' inside the trailer?

Defrosting refer

I know this is not being discussed here but thought I would throw it out since our refer are not frost free. I very carefully use my hair dryer to blow warm air across the fins and inside the freeze when it needs to be defrosted. I don't just stand there and keep it going full time. I blow on it a little to get it started, prop the doors open and then go back a little later and blow on it again. Before I start the whole process I fold a heavy towel to put in the bottom of the refer to catch the water. Also if I do this away from home I try to do it when I don't have very much in it and what I do have goes into an ice chest until the refer is cold again. All this speeds up the job and keeps the mess to a minimum. Quick rinse with a little water with soda to keep it smelling good. :sunny
