Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Good morning, welcome to the Technical section in JustAnswer; my name is ***** ***** I will help you today.The N3000 should switch to gas under various circumstances, so is it possible that there was an interruption to the 240VAC supply while you were out?When you say that you've tried setting to 220V power only, does it then run in that mode, or is it refusing to?_____If you receive a phone call offer, please ignore it - these are system generated and outside my control. My understanding is that you won't be charged if there's no phone call.
OK. So it appears that there's a fault in the detection of the mains supply. The user manual says:"In case of a problem an error code on the control panel can light up. When error codes 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 12 or 13 are visible, switch the refrigerator off and on again. If the problems still exist, directly contact your dealer or a Thetford Service Centre."The attached page gives you a bit more insight.While you have this fault, don't forget to keep the AA batteries fresh so that the N3000 can continue to run on gas.
I don't understand the redirection. I've just looked at the following web site and see lots of names and UK addresses, but no reference to JustAnswer:https://www.thetford-europe.com/gb/dealer-and-service-centres-locatorIf you want to undertake the repairs yourself and you want guidance then I'll happily help you, but I get the feeling that you need a visit from an engineer.
That is true! I don't suppose it's still under warranty? :-)
Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever :-/As least it's still working from the gas supply - the auto-switching is a good feature.
Interesting. Are you on a hook-up, or your own inverter?
Is it possible that the supply dipped below the threshold that makes the fridge switch over, and has now recovered?
If you have a meter you can measure the supply voltage. A cheap and cheerful device like this one might be a prudent investment.
I will interested to hear if you find that the supply is dipping.This is an opportune moment to ask if you would rate my assistance, using the 5 stars at the top of the page. The customer's rating is what enables an expert to be paid for their time, so I hope I was helpful to you.
Thank you for your rating, and you kind bonus :-)
