The pilot sequence is designed to run for 45 seconds. It could be that the thermocouple is not triggering the cycle once the pilot is lit. I am having the same problem and intend to replace the thermocouple and then give it another go. The fridge works fine on electric but stopped working on gas last week.

2003 wildwood Le trailer how do we light the gas on the refridgerator??? Did not come with manual.


Your fridge should have a switch for propane/electric/automatic. This is usually located above the fridge door & just below the freezer door. When on propane the gas will feed directly to the fridge there us no need to light it! However the propane needs to feed from the large propane tank usually mounted on the tongue of the trailer to the fridge....this takes some time . We usually light our drove first then wait a few minutes & then turn on the fridge. Please know that it takes a few hours 10-12 fir the fridge to cool down to acceptable temps.
Now if u do all the above u may have a blockage (mud dauber) in the propane line - which u can usually access thru the fridge access panel on the outside of your trailer. Bees seem to be drawn to the Oder if propane. Make sure prolate tank is shut off! Take a small brush & clean the inside of the propane line & then start from the beginning.

When the switch is set to electric, you should notice the fridge getting colder in a few hours. Again 10-12 hrs before it us acceptable to place food in it.

When the switch is in the auto mode it will automatically switch from electric to propane when you lose electricity for any reason & back to electric is you run out of propane - or shut it off.

Oh one last thing you must have your battery on in order for the fridge to work!

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.

Propane torpedo lights but doesnt stay lit


I'm confused. First you listed this as a propane torpedo heater. Second, it's a problem with and All Pro PK115 T Forced Air Kerosene Space Heater. And finally, you say "propane torpedo lights but doesn't stay lit."

Which is it? To really help you, I'll need the correct manufacturer's name & model number. And whether it's propane or kerosene fired?

Thanks.

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.
