Welcome to the home of Thetford refrigeration!
All Thetford refrigerators automatically defrost. This keeps ice from forming on the freezer element; no more chipping away at an icey build up in your freezer. The anti-fog function, which automatically turns on, ensures that the thermal bridge caused by double-door refrigerators does not cause condensation. All the refrigerators have a reliable self-diagnosis system. Should a fault occur, an error code will appear on the control panel*.

How does it work?
All Thetford absorption fridges work on AC (220-240V), or gas. The LED refrigerators can even work on 12V battery. This allows you to use a Thetford refrigerator in virtually any situation. The control panel reveals which energy source is selected. After automatically selecting the best available energy source, the refrigerator will start working. The flame is electrically ignited in all models. And if the flame accidentally goes out, the refrigerator will restart itself within 2.5 seconds.
Absorption; Quiet as a whisper
Thetford absorption refrigerators work differently than your fridge at home. Thetford refrigerators have no compressor, making them much quieter. This means you can relax and enjoy a pleasant stay in your caravan or camper, without noisy appliances buzzing in the background. The N3000 and N4000 range both work with absorption technology.
Compression refrigeration: How it works
This is the most known type of refrigerator as it is the most commonly used refrigeration technolgy used in the home. The compressor turns chemical gas into cooling liquid (under pressure) which is pumped into the cabinet. This gives the cooling effect inside the refrigerator. It is a simple system, with moving parts that can cause some level of noise, but Thetford have developed a low noise compressor that has a day mode and quieter night mode.
