Firstly can I say that you must be competent to remove a fridge as you are dealing with 240v and LPG.

You will need to disconnect the 12v, 240v and gas supply. If you are lucky you can unscrew the fridge and ease it forwards about 40 cm and then you maybe be able to do the service from the outside. It just depends on the vent positions - you can be lucky.... or maybe not. Its probably a 50/50 chance.

I would suggest you pay an engineer to do the service (but I would say that wouldn't I)

If you decide to do it yourself then you need to remove the flue baffles. Then remove the burner and jet. Then you need to clean the flue out to remove the carbon deposits. Fit a new jet and you will probably need new burners on a fridge of this age.

Put it all back together, screw it in place and then you must do a gas soundness check to ensure that you do not have any leaks.

IIRC (I may not be!) we had someone here with a similar T4-based model saying that he could get access to the whole burner assembly simply by removing the lower outside vent panel.

I should add that on my Transit-based conversion I could not, as there was too little space to remove one of the screws holding the metal shroud in place around the burner.
