Post Subject: Gaz Fridge

Hi Tony. The fridge on my boat does,nt seem to be working although the pilot light is burning. I wondered if it needs re-charging, if so how do I go about it. Thanks Ken.

Post Subject: Gaz Fridge

As far as I know you do not. On the hire fleet we used to change the whole cooler assembly. They are not like compressor fridges. I must caution you against doing any work on gas appliances unless you are "competent" as per the BSS guide. First of all the fridge flame should be all blue. If it has any yellow there is a blockage in the air supply to the injector. The injector (jet) may also be partially blocked with rust dust. If the flame is fat and blue than taking the fridge out (disconnect t first), turning it upside down and then giving the pipes at the back and good dose of GBH with (say ) the heel of a slipper and finally setting it up the right way and letting it stand for a while before relighting can work wonders.
