hi i own a caravan fitted with a thetford n80 fridge. that does not appear to work on 12v,240v and gas. reading in one of the caravan mags it says that the if the fridge is subject to more than 3derees it switches off, so what happens on roads with gradients of more than 3 degrees as in scotland from where i have just returned or on slightly unlevel ground?. even leveling the caravan doesnt get the fridge working,im not really prepared to fit a new frigde
When the unit is stationary and level, will it run on any source?
Any sign of life?
Did this work for you before?
Also may I have the full model # XXXXX the fridge?
Thank you

Thank you for that information Dave,
This is an indication the main control board is in need of replacement.
It is easy enough to do and requires only a few basic hand tools.
I will hep you if you want to do this yourself?
Please let me know if you would also like me to find the best source for the part for you.
