Has an issue with fridge not running on gas , cured the fault by cleaning the jet (it was dirty) , fires up fine now but piezo working all the time after fridge has fired up very odd ??????
Fridge on gas failed last year and motor home not turned a wheel for 8 months I suspect unrelated issues, possibly piezo unit faulty ???
And yes its not good for it to sit for 8 months unattended but retired now living in warmer climes come back in summer pick it up and bumble round Europe in it

Mine done the same thing a couple of years ago, I did post on here somewhere it was a blue electric block thingy cost £60 for a new one. There was a slightly different model to mine and that one was only £22 but Sod’s law I had the expensive one. When I get back from racing tonight I will post a picture of the offending part might be of help to ya.

Why do modern fridges go wrong so often?
Our Musketeer caravan that now belongs to a friend, is 29 years old and the fridge is still fine.

It may be that you disturbed the thermocouple when you cleaned the jet and now it isn't in the flame enough to sense that it has actually ignited. Check that out.

I was surprised ours even lit last time the van was at a very extreme angle, but light it did, but it didn't cool the fridge until I got it level.


I think Moho appliances are generally quite reliable if left alone, we only hear of faulty ones and not that often really considering how many there are out there of all ages.
