Hallo James. I have sorted the issue now and am away using the van. All is well I only contacted you guys because it was a Sunday and couldn’t get a service engineer that day.
Thanks anyway

No problem, a lot of the time these issues are with the gas valves in the appliance and as you have proven LPG was getting to other appliances such as the hob it would most likely have pointed to a fault with the fridge itself, and with it being a gas appliance would need to be taken into a Thetford service centre.

Should you have further faults relating to the fridge the best option is to take it directly to the service centre at the next available day they are open and run it on 12V or Mains until that time. You can find your local service centre on the website here.

Have a good day.
