Re: spark no gas
First off use a BBQ match and try to light one burner manually with the match. if it lights then the next thing to do is physically move the ignighter closer to the burner plate. if not then you should check the gas line as far into the stove as possible. and if you still dont have a flame then its either time (for the tool savey) to tear into it checking all gas lines and valves to see if they are open or you should call the repair man. sorry i couldnt be of more help

On the back side of the refrigerator (behind the access panel) you will see a small brass valve that the copper supply line is connected to. Ensure that the line on the small knob is aligned horizontally. Ensure that you have full tanks of LP gas and that the bottles are open and the regulator is allowing LP gas through. Have someone turn the refrigerator off then back on in gas mode while you stand outside and listen for the gas valve to open (you should hear a hard click sound) and shortly after you should hear the igniter click several times to light the flame. If you do not hear the gas valve open then either your gas valve is bad or the board is bad. If the valve opens but you do not hear the igniter, again you may have a bad board or bad igniter.
Thank you I have contacted simpson directly to obtain your manual from the manufacturer I will look for there response tommorow and message you my contact mail information when it is sent from them. And if you have to use a match on top to light the burners you would first assure that you have spark if you have no spark then you would look at the spark modulator which is what most stoves use to send the current to the electrodes to create the spark. If you did have spark you would then need to check each electrode or ignitor to assure that they were not cracked and they were functioning properly. If you have any questions message me back or I will be posting as soon as simpson responds to my contact of them. Thank you Rick
Sounds like you did your homework ... this is my last thought ... has this problem gone on long enough that the air has been bled out of the gas line going to the frig and is the little valve on the burner in fact open and is the power to the valve on and connected so gas can get out when the frige wants to ignite? Check your fuses on the control board at the back of the frig.
The older units has a 3 VDC glow coil the newer units have a 12VDC igniter.
Fromwhat your described above the next paragragh is your ignition system.
The igniter control voltages in the newer SPARK type igniters are (+) = 12VDC, (L)= high voltage lead (Spark plug voltage! I.e ruin your meter type voltage), (-)= Ground L is the lead that passes the HV spark from the control unit to the ignitor plate. The L lead should pass one heck of a hit if is workng correctly.
If not look at the HV lead to see if it is grounding out somewhere.
If the gas safety valve is not sensing gas pressure... you will not have 12VDC to the + terminal of the ignition moudule.
With the gas on and you have 12VDC at the ignition module + terminal then most likely the ignition module is bad.
You may have an issue with not getting enough gas. Also it could be that the igniters are bad. Have a local repairman check it out, you dont want to mess around with a gas system without knowing what your doing just for safety sake.
OPERATING MODES AUTO MODE Press the AUTO/MANUAL mode selector button (2) to the DOWN position. The AUTO mode indicator lamp (A) will illuminate. When operating in the AUTO mode, the AUTO mode indicator lamp (A) will illuminate. The control system will automatically select between AC and GAS operation with AC having priority over GAS. If the control system is operating on AC energy and it then becomes unavailable, the system will automatically switch to GAS. As soon as AC becomes available again the control will switch back to AC operation. If 120 volts AC is not available, the control system will automatically switch to GAS operation. Within 45 seconds the burner should be ignited and operating normally. If unsuccessful, the CHECK indicator lamp (B) will illuminate. To restart an ignition attempt with the CHECK lamp illuminated or to clear (turn off) the CHECK lamp, press the main power ON/OFF button to the OFF and then to the ON position. The control system will attempt a new 45 second ignition sequence. On the initial refrigerator start-up on gas (120 volts AC is not available), it may take longer than 45 seconds to allow air to be purged from the gas line. If the refrigerator has not been used for a long time or the LP tanks have just been refilled, air may be trapped in the supply lines. To purge the air from the lines may require resetting the main power ON/OFF button (1) three of four times. If repeated attempts fail to start the LP gas operation, check to make sure that the LP gas supply tanks are not empty and all manual shutoff valves in the lines are open. NOTE: DO NOT continue to reset GAS operation if the CHECK indicator lamp continues to be illuminated after 3 or 4 tries.
