It gets hot in the back but not cold inside. anyone know what to try?[/quote]
On my 1967 Tradewind the gas oriffice had viberated loose. There is a small threaded coller at the base of the gas oriffice where the flame burns. this coller screws up and down to mix air with the gas to get a properly burning flame. Mine was burning very rich( to much gas) this produced LOTS of soot and caused the fridge to not cool. When I ajusted the flame to a bright blue (not yellow) and cleaned the soot out of the chimminy my fridge began to cool again. Adios, John
