It's in.

Well, it took a little work, but it's back in the pipe. The freezer works but the fridge is still dead. Maybe Santa will get me a nice used one.

Thanks for all the help.

Unhappy Not Cool

Sorry to hear that. A little Christmas in July, maybe???

I know there are a number of places on the web that deal in rebuilt refers.

Sorry to hear you're still having trouble.

T.J., the guy at rvmobile.com, rebuilt the cooling unit for our fridge--not cheap, but good workmanship. He was kind enough to talk me through the whole thing, although if it's on his website, he's not slow to tell you to go read it first. Call him if your problem's not on his site. If one part of the fridge works, I can't see why the whole thing won't--isn't it one cooling unit?

After I reinstalled the cooling unit, I was able to test our fridge in the shop with a barbeque propane bottle and regulator before I reinstalled it in the trailer. Ran it on both gas and electric, and it worked fine.

I had never worked on a gas/electric fridge before in my life, and T.J. got me through it. He has my recommendation!

How long did you let it run ? If the freezer is working,the fridge should also.

It ran for atleast 12 hrs. The freezer made ice but the fridge was room temperature. I'm guessing it has other issues. The wiring below looks like someone colorblind put it together. I'm not even sure if the thermostates work.

I'm new to the propane fridge world so I could be doing something wrong. I thought if the freezer worked the fridge had to too. But nope. We're going camping this weekend so it'll have a good long run.
