    Default 83 Westfalia fridge help..

    My vans fridge has always worked great. This year I parked it for nine months and when I started it back up the fridge wasn't working on propane.
    I made sure the tank was full and the stove seems to works fine. The green level meter shows that it's working but it doesn't cool. I turned the fridge on with
    the electrical plug in and it worked perfect. So this was good news!! It all looks like it should be running. I was hoping to see if anyone has some suggestions
    on what steps to try next. Thank you for any information Cheers <M

    Is this the standard Dometic 182? I would think that if it works on AC, it ought to work on LPG: It is all the same refrigeration system, just a different heat source. Is the LPG flame working, can you feel a little heat at the exhaust on the outside of the van? Did you unscrew the drain at the bottom of the fridge to make sure there isn't water obstructing the burner, something like that?
