    Removing the vent gives access to the burner and thermocouple and valve.
    Yes the thermocouple is needed to operate the valve but if either is not working no gas (to the fridge)
    Thanks again Jagmanx, well Blair is outside now giving everyone's suggestions a try so I'll update when he is finished. We do appreciate everyone's help with this, that's why we joined this forum because you are all really lovely people. ��

We picked out......yes, you guessed it Seyla Motorhomes and here we are! Now I come to read your post, so perhaps fate sent us here. We will see them in the morning when they open, but if I had not seen your post we would have just carried on to the next electric hook-up. We are hesitant to pay more money out and end up without it being fixed again, so maybe we will be luckier here. I'll post back after we have spoken with them and let you know how it goes.
    We had to wait for parts and then wanted to hang around locally in case it wasn't properly fixed so we stayed at Camping Park Pizarra , He will do a deal for 14 nights at 10 euros a night plus electricity BUT you don't have to use the 14 nights consecutively. It's a nice spot and very quiet.
    Thanks luv2travel, jacquigem thanked for this post

    Blair has tried that jagmanx, but unfortunately it did not work. When we went into Seyla Motorhomes they said that they no longer had any service repair people and they did not do repairs any more. So we found a Dometic Service place in Antequera and drove there. They said they couldn't possibly look at it until next week as they are too busy. We asked if they had the parts we may need and they had a new controller at 102 and a new Valve at 106. He said that if it wasn't any if these we could not return either of them so we bought the controller and Blair has just fitted it, but that didn't appear to be the problem so we went back and bought the valve and Blair fitted that and hey presto, 263 later we now have a fully working fridge. It's a good job I have a very skilled husband. We just drove from Antequera down to Rincon de la Victoria, parked up and the fridge lit straight away. If nothing else, the fridge has had a good service and new parts and now we can get on with enjoying the rest of our vacation.

    Glad all is working now.

    Glad it's sorted.

    Well done for persisting. You now know all you need to know about your fridge!

    Glad it is all sorted

    Nothing is cheap but getting the fridge working again on gas is essential (IMO)
