  • For a proper performance, Thetford Absorption refrigerators require vents on the outside of the vehicle. Thetford vents are available in different colours and sizes to best suit your vehicle, please see accessories list above.
  • Absorption 3 way refrigerators need to be installed and certified by a qualified and licensed gas-fitter, as improperly or illegally installed products will void the manufacturer’s warranty, and could pose a safety risk.
  • While 3 way absorption fridges have the ability to run off 3 different power sources (12V / 240V / Gas), they are primarily designed with gas operation in mind; they provide exceptional efficiency when running on gas. However for 12 Volt operation, this is only recommended with absorption fridges when the vehicle is running, otherwise it can exhaust your 12 volt power source (battery) very quickly.

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:Why can’t I hear the refrigerator operating?

    3 Way absorption refrigerators have no compressor, therefore they run silently. This makes Thetford 3 Way Fridges the perfect solution for your RV!

  • Q:When operating on gas, do I need my caravan or motorhome to be level?

    Yes, this is a critical detail to ensure the refrigerator operates correctly.

  • Q:Is it okay to defrost my fridge/freezer using a hair dryer, heat gun or boiling water?

    No, the sudden change in temperature will cause the inner surface of the fridge/freezer to distort. This will not be covered under warranty.

  • Q:How do I clean my fridge?

    Cleaning tips
    • A good time to clean your refrigerator is straight after you have defrosted it.
    • Clean the refrigerator with a soft cloth and mild detergent.
    • Dust the refrigerator with a soft, moistened cloth.
    • Use a brush or soft cloth once a year to remove any dust from the condenser at the inside of the refrigerator.

    Important - Do not use soap or aggressive detergents that are abrasive or soda-based. The removable interior components of the refrigerator are not dishwasher safe.

  • Q:How do I defrost my refrigerator?

    Frost will gradually build up on the condenser of the refrigerator. You should defrost the refrigerator as soon as the frost layer is about 3 mm thick. Frost reduces the refrigerating capacity and life of your refrigerator.

    • Remove the ice cube tray and all food.
    • Switch off the refrigerator.
    • Leave the refrigerator door open.
    • Place dry towels in the refrigerator to absorb the water.
    • Place trays containing hot water in the freezer compartment.
    • After defrosting (when the freezer compartment and condenser are frost-free), remove the towels and the water trays and use a cloth to dry off the refrigerator.
    • Switch the refrigerator on again.

    • Do not use force or sharp objects to remove frost.
    • Do not try to accelerate defrosting by using a hairdryer for example.

  • Q:How do I check if my refrigerator door closes properly?

    If the door is not closed properly, frost will form in the refrigerator. Close the door with a piece of paper between the door and the refrigerator, to determine whether the door closes properly. Pull at the piece of paper. If you feel resistance, the refrigerator door closes properly. If you feel no resistance, the door does not close properly.

    Perform this test regularly on all four sides of the refrigerator door. If you find that the door does not close properly, check whether the door locking mechanism keeps the door properly shut.
