Does anyone happen to have any instructions for an Electrolux 3 way fridge please? I took the van on a maiden voyage at the weekend and couldn't seem to get it going on hookup or battery. Either that or it is working but the red light doesn't come on and it's absolutely silent when it's on!? Not sure.

This is one like mine.

What is the model number?  Should be able to help.

Have you tried it on gas?

Also how long did you leave it?  They take a little time to cool.

Hi. Not sure of the model #. I'll see if I can find it out. I haven't tried it on gas cause it's a bugger to get the van level apparently. Was hoping to use on hookup. Yeh I didn't leave it very long so maybe I'll have to try it again. I was kinda expecting to hear a buzzing noise and the light come on.

HI MATE THE LED DOESNT WORK AND YES FRIDGE IS SILENT BUT DOES WORK FINE IF U FLICK THE SWITCH TO BATTERY WHEN DRIVING IT GETS COLS THEN WHEN U GET THERE PLUG INTOO MAINS THEN FLICK SWITCH TO PLUG SYMBOL THEN TURN UP TO NUMBER EIGHT AND IT GETS FREEZING
YOU WILL HAVE TO GET THE VAN LEVEL THOUGH I WAS TOLD THEY WERE A BUGGER TO WORK IF NOT LEVEL
AS FOR GAS SAME AS REALLY TURN IT ON AND TURN TO FLAME AND PRESS IGNITER THEY TAKE LITTLE WHILE TO GET COLD ON GAS BUT DOES WORK

i have a new waeco fridge and it takes 5 hours to get to the right temp and is silent, so i plug the van into the mains at home overnight before i go away and then whack it onto battery while traveling to keep it cool! Grin

Liking your thinking Hobbsy! Just got to figure out how to plug into the mains! I have the orange hookup cable and have an adaptor with a 2 prong end - would that just plug into a european to UK adaptor or something?

it sounds like it mate but i wouldnt use that lead, i would have a uk adapter (lead) which has the three pin (normal plug) on the end and the male or female hook up lead that suits your van on the other end! this will then be earthed which i like personally!!! the other europeans dont have earths so hence the two pin plug! should be easy enough to re wire if you get stuck post some pics up and ill try to advise! (I am assuming your van has got earthed appliances and twin and earth cableing?)
