Post by Askit on Sat Aug 15, 2020 9:45 am

Having a bit of a problem with the Thetford three way fridge. On EHU , it worked normally for a while then flashed that it couldn't work on gas? Now won't let me select either mains or gas. I know I should know, but is there a dedicated fuse for the fridge and can anyone tell me where it might be? All other circuits appear to be working normally.

Thanks

Although I would still be grateful for someone pointing me in the right direction for the fridge fuse, events have moved on a bit. I'm managed to get the fridge working on EHU again so the fuse does not seem to be the issue. I am now playing Thetford fridge bingo, codes 11, 10 and 6 so far. Could it be a relay problem or possibly the PCB?

Looks like I'll need to get a techie on to it.

You might find this of help (perhaps not). [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Thanks Mike, yes it is of help. Gets a bit bizarre with different codes showing up. It's been going for about 10 hours now without a warning code so we'll see. Technology is great when it's working rolleyes

I have a diagram showing the fridge connections for fridge from EC50 unit, its interconnected with Split Charge Relay (Lunar Special) via fuse 8. And vehicle Batt output, and Input and Perm Fridge output and switched Fridge Output. If you have EC50 (mine is behind drivers seat) i can send you a copy of drawing if any use!

Richard, thanks, that's very helpful. I'll check the fuse in case it's a "bad contact" issue. I got the fridge working on EHU yesterday and it was ok until this morning. Common denominator may be other loads on the system eg, kettle or hair dryer (not mine snigger ) initiating the issue.

Ok, guess I may be flogging a dead horse but, further evidence of my theory. Just used the microwave and the fridge flashed a code11 warning so it does appear the be reacting to other loads on the system. Can anyone suggest what the issue might be?

Just a guess is the EHU supply coping. How long before you can get to a different one to prove it.

Thanks for the reply. Tomorrow, we move to Hawes so it will be interesting to see if the problem persists. Must say I'm struggling to understand the logic but I learned a long time ago with system failures, logic is not always applicable.

I'd guess a bad contact in either the EHU site electrics or in your own connecting lead. Check tightness of terminal screws in your plug and socket.

Thanks Mike, I've gained a more understanding of the continuing problem with our Thetford N3000 series fridge freezer that suddenly switched to gas whilst on EHU on recent trip away. Fortunately, sufficient LPG on board for the ten day duration. Display panel showed fault code 8 and back home continued to do so on A/C mains. The Thetford down load clearly gives explanations to this code but I'm useless with electrics despite having a volt meter. Mobile habitation check tomorrow so hopefully a straightforward solution.

thetford fridge low voltage errors are common on overseas sites but sometimes where there is a large demand at any site...morning kettle on etc...
whether this applies to 'your van' delivering a low voltage (as opposed to all vans due to overall demand) i couldnt say, but Rons suggestion above might cause what youre seeing.
good luck.

It is quite possible that the site power at your bollard was causing the problem.  We experienced this last year, albeit that only the error code 10 displayed, and I reported my findings here ...

Tim, and others, thanks for your replies. The scenario you describe Tim appears to be exactly what's happening here. When the rain stops   shrugg I will check the EHU cable as Ron suggests  up!

We reported a possible voltage drop to the CL site owner who didn't think so, fair enough. The other four units on site had no related problem likely due to not having auto 3 way refrigeration like us. As mentioned, same problem when back home in A/C mains.

Just a quick update. No obvious issues with my EHU cable, on site in Hawes now and the fridge appears to be behaving itself despite using the microwave and kettle. I will continue to monitor though.
