N10 does not look to be a vlaid Thetford fridge model number please confirm the model number.

It’s a n100

Thank you for the model number.

Fault 1: AC heater current is measured to be 75% below nominal current.

This points to either a issue on the power supply coming into the van or the PCB incorrectly detecting the voltage, and will need to take the van to a Thetford service centre for the Fridge PCB to be changed.
