Fridge not working

Please help
I just picked up our 2017 Thor Chateau 30C and the fridge is plug in my house power and it has been going for 4 days and still has not cooled down and the freezer is not freezing. It seems to be cooling on the LP gas. I had it on auto and nothing. Am I doing something wrong?

Try reading through this thread. It may help. Some explain they've seen it before. Mine is functioning as it should. It turned out to be the weather.

I do not like adsorption fridges due to many years of tweaking them however if everything is right they do work

check your door seals by sliding a dollar bill around them. Should be a decent bit of resistance all around

Propane firing the boiler will always crank out a bit more heat than the electrick element

You have to be careful how long you leave the doors open as well

Put a thermometer in the freezer and in the fridge and you may want to put a fan in the fridge portion up near the fins

Lots of other things you can do if you are still having issues and adsorption fridges do have to be fairly level

How about the ON and GAS LEDs? I assume you have an N611 fridge with controls like:



You can check any flashing codes wit the attached manual.

You are absolutely correct that is the one. When I switch it to GAS I do have the light indicating that it is on GAS. The rv is not level on an angle. Higher in the back lower in front, driveway on that angle. By a comment that I received I'm hoping the reason is because of the fact that it's not level

Level your RV within the fridge manufacturer's requirements and try again.
