Check the simple things first. Make sure fridge plug is still in, circuit breakers are all on, and a GFI between the house and trailer may have tripped.

if on gas when you light it you should feel heat on your chimney where the gas is lit! I have never ran mime on el. but you should feel heat somewhere outside on your fridge.


are you sure you have gas in your tank?

On our trip cross country last summer, our fridge wasn't cooling well at all when we got to the Grand Canyon and I first tried to blow from bottom up the chimney and quite a bit of soot came out and fridge worked a bit better. The next day I removed the top grill and found that there was actually a cleaning rod down in the chimney that I had never used. I pulled this rod up and down several times and it screws its way along the wall of the chimney and clears the soot.
Fridge worked the remaining 2 months of the trip with no problems on Gas.

If you are referring to part number 102 in the diagram, thats the baffle. I believe its purpose is to slow the rising heat. I clean it when I clean the chimney. Click image for larger version

Raz, my "T" handle was gone and that thin wire was just hooked over the top edge of chimney.
Great Diagram.
