It appears that you have a bad thermocouple. This senses the heat and should allow the gas valve to stay open after the flame has been lit for approximately 30 seconds. By pushing the button you are manually opening the valve. Check to make sure the thermocouple is resting in the flame and is getting the proper heat.

SOURCE: FRIDGE WILL NOT IGNITE IN GAS MODE

The part you are looking for is the thermo couple. It senses the heat from the flame and holds the gas valve open. The clicking will try three times and then go into lock out. You then will need to reset on the front of the fridge. When installing the thermo couple do not over tighten.

SOURCE: Dometic refridgerator won't stay lit on Propane

A bit more info is needed. What model #, and how old is it? In back, does it have a computer board (underneath a green or black plastic cover, appros 4" x 6")? Im guessing that it does, ('cause you get an error message,) Make sure that you have a good 12 volts going to the board at all times, and make sure that the glass fuses on the board are not blown. If that checks out, than its a real good bet the you have a defective board. For Americana models, you're going to need a Dometic board, and for other models, an aftermarket board will usually do. Althoiugh the OEM ones have a better chance of fixing your problem.

SOURCE: my dometic fridge will not turn on

Check to see if you have a switch for storage, on, off etc. usually between doors, or near top right corner of fridge compartment. It may be in wrong position.

Dometic 3way fridge model RM2350R. the fridge works ok, but when i run it on gas the flame lights first time, but the flame indicater does not work,the thermocuple has the right ajustment,is clean,wh


The flame indicator works on very low voltages from electricity generated via the thermocouple. Check the connections and if OK, I would say you are correct in assuming the indicator has failed. These are very sensitive and a bit of a knock can damage them. Try Dometic or Electrolux for a replacement indicator.

My Morphy Richards astral gas fridge will light just fine but will not stay lit after holding the red (disc) button even after several minutes. What is wrong? Thanks


Not familiar with this machine but found this
http://vintageshasta.proboards.com/thread/64
If you look / click at the high res versions of the pages it tells you; that you should hear a click of the safety valve after a short time lighting it. If the click is not heard, then the main gas safety valve will not open fully and the flame will go out.
This is a sure sign that the Thermostat .burner unit needs to be replaced.
See the manual pages and you;ll see what I mean.
From other postings I have seen the best place to get spares for these things is on Ebay.
Good Luck

CAN YOU MANUALLY LIGHT A DOMETIC RM2652 PROPANE FRIDGE IN A 2006 TRAILER


It will not light manually as the ignition probe is electronically controlled. If it doesn't stay lit normally then it will more then likely not stay lit when trying to light manually.

If it doesn't click or the light doesn't flicker it is probably either you don't have good strong 12 volt power getting to the fridge(12 volt required only to light on gas the first time) or else the little gas igniter module went out looks like this only sometimes black.

Now if it won't stay lit. It is something wrong with either your flame or your thermocouple. First try just blowing out the the flu right where the flame comes out blow compressed air in so if there is dirt or cobweb in there it comes out the back side. If that doesn't help disconnect your thermocouple and wipe the end and then connect it back up and tighten it. If it still wont stay lit still replace the thermocouple.
