looks like our fridge on our Sealine has packed up, but not being an expert in these matters I wouldn't mind getting someone to look at it to see if can be fixed, or if it is dead, to fit a replacemnt if I get a new one.

Anyone know of anyone near bray who might be worth contacting?

I have checked breakers / fuses etc, and pulled out the fridge to see if anything obvious, but couldn't see any causes?

Gas or electric?
Make?
Power at connections when they get to the fridge it sounds like you have checked and that's working so I'm deducing a Danfoss compressor type fridge and not a gas one running off 12v electrickery and swallowing amps.

First port of call for me would be the maker's website and any troubleshooting pages they have, or their phone number.

Good Luck.

If you have to get a replacement then try World Of Camping on eBay. I got a replacement Waeco for £200 less than other dealers were selling them for. I couldn't be without a main fridge for another summer :)

just seen the cost for a new replacement fridge, around the £500 mark!!!

believe that the make is an ENGEL 12/230V 55LTR

Do check both the + and negative fuses to the fridge.Mine had a couple of the those blade fuses,had checked the + one and it seemed OK,after much head scratching found there was one in neg line as well.Changed it and all was well.

Having said that the owners of my chums on "Release" in Bray went through all the stages of new boat fridge buying ....HOWMUCH/denial/bargaining/acceptance and few months ago coughed up £500 quid after investigating first regassing...then a new compressor or finally something from ebay and then biting the bullet.

Good post and my experience exactly.
