Very common fault on these is the fuse hanging somewhere around the engine battery (12v fridge operation only works while engine running). You should find two fuses hanging in holders, one is for fridge the other for split charger. They get badly corroded by water running from scuttle. Contacts may need cleaning or fuse holder replacing.

Hi,
The electric panel above the doors does not control the fridge. With the engine running the swit h light should operate. There are plug in relays under the seat one of which operates the fridge when the engine runs, there are also a pair of blade fuses to check. If all of this is OK then its time to get the test meter out,
Regards,
Chris

Its been hinted about above. The fridge only operates on 12v when the engine is running.

In my Duetto the fridge 12v light does not illuminate, but it still works when driving, so don't assume because the light does not come on that the fridge will not work.

EBay....they clip together so get two and replace the other one before that melts or corrodes - very common problem

Hi there,

Take your pick ....

http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_0_11/276-2342554-2830935?url=search-alias%3Dautomotive&field-keywords=fuse+holder&sprefix=fuse+holder%2Caps%2C178

However, BEFORE you fit a new one you should definitely:

1.  Find out EXACTLY what melted the original and REPAIR IT.

2.  Buy TWO replacements in case you don't repair it properly.

Hope this helps. allthumbz

Best regards,
