Every thing else works fine. Just the fridge is the problem. And I have a nice blue flame at the burner. And the flue gets hot when running. ??????

Make sure your flue is clean all the way thru, no bees nest, spider webs etc. check and make sure your roof vent is free and clear. I noticed on mine that there was insulation from the factory blocking art of it.

Carbon build up will not allow the heat transfer to the cool- ing unit and cause lack of cooling on gas. The flue tube is welded to the boiler of the cooling unit. In a rough riding coach there have been rare cases where the weld will crack and create lack of cooling. The flue tube must be cleaned periodically, at least once a year. Clean by using a flue brush, Dometic Part No. 0151404001.

Must have a air flow thru the condenser problem. Does yours have a fan? If so is it coming on?

I'll clean the flue when I get home. Thinking this is the problem as it is running perfectly on AC. no it doesn't have a fan, but does it need one if its good on AC??????
