    Thetford N90 fridge



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Hi all. I am new to this, so apologies if I am posting incorrectly. I recently bought my first motorhome (used Autocruise Pioneer). It has a Thetford N90 fridge which works fine on gas, but won't work on electricity. As far as I can see, all I need to do is select electricity on the power source knob, and adjust the thermostat. The main power switch on the fused spur is working, with the red neon light glowing. Any advice on how to get this going would be much appreciated. Cheers, Andrew

    Most 3 way fridges are only designed to work on electricity from the alternator when the van is being driven, you then switch the gas on when you arrive at your destination.

    Is the (usually red) electric switch on the fridge illuminated when the engine is running?

    I thought when OP mentioned fused spur, he was referring to 240v, but I've no knowledge of these fridges so can't help.

    Does that particular model display a fault code?

    May well be worth a 'phone call to Thetford.

    You need to check if you have 240V to the fridge. If so, then it is going to be the selector switch or (more likely) a blown 240V heating element. All easy to check if you can get to all the wiring at the top of the fridge and are handy with a multimeter. They are fairly simple but access usually means taking fridge out or removing the hob above.....
