  1. Jerico added an answer to a question Dometic RM7271 Fridge   

    I am answering my own question now.    I contacted Technical Tom (Leisuredirect) and got advice
    on the Fridge, he suggested the thermo couple could be the fault.   I  bought a new unit including
    the thermocoupler (£80)   quickly fitted it without removing the fridge and it has worked perfectly
    ever since.    You have to undo the gas connector, but just a soapy water test afterwards is all
    you need to do.     I know a lot of people say dont touch gas appliances, electrics, brakes you name
    it, but we always used to do these jobs didnt we?    We dont have to be Minny Mouse, we can do
    these jobs perfectly well ourselves.    Lets get out there and do it            John

    Dometic RM7271 Fridge
    Hello Fellas
    Having trouble with the above fridge.       Its starts OK on gas and cools down well
    Later continuous clicking and woofing, sometimes starts but often fails, with flashing yellow light.
    If you switch off and on again it will fire up straight away, no woofs
    I have been told it could be the igniter, (an expensive item), but would it fire up so well initially and on reswitching, with a faulty igniter?
    Plus it clicks continuously,does that indicate its working?
    I fitted a new jet recently and cleaned the pipes.
    Just seems that it fails when the fridge is warm, but starts well when cold, perhaps that is the possible clue.
    Any help  would be appreciated, having aholiday is Spain later this year with dodgy fridge will be a bundle of fun!

    Storm Katey
    We were on the South Downs over Easter with our motorhome.   During Sunday night we were visited by Storm Katey
    with winds (they say) up to 100 mph.     We were side on to the wind and thought at times we would turn over.    I was
    a little surprised to see in the morning, all caravans still in the upright position.    My question is, does anyone know
    what wind speed would be likely to turn over a caravan if side on to the wind.   I might sleep better if its well above 100 mph.

  5. Jerico added a post in a topic Did you see Don't Look down? Channel 4 last night   

    Well, I liked the programme, it looked as though it was really happening. So many programmes are totally rehearsed, its all an act. The only downside for me was that he had no job, so I suppose his mother was supporting him - poor old mum again. jerico
