Question about Dometic RM2620 Refrigerator
When I change my frig over from electric to LP or try to start on LP the ignitor lights the burner, works for appx 15 to 20 seconds and then goes out. Sometimes it will relight, other times it won't. If I leave on LP the check light will light and the unit will lockout and will not cool. There are no apparent leaks in the system, I haven't seen any of the taletell signs ammonia residue on the coils, etc.
Hmm.. let me put this way....
while the refrigerator is trying to light(15-20 secs as u said). tap on the gas valve, if it is stuck this may be the problem and allow gas to flow through. Also, if the unit has been sitting for a while, retry the procedure several times.as per my experiance i ask my clients to try to light for 30 seconds and if it doesn't light, to turn off, wait 5 min and try again. this is a generic problems and many clients has also said that after it works on LP later it does not work on AC. but if you have made up your mind to replace Board, thermocouple and Gas valve.. i think the issue is with the gas valve.. also if you are capable enough to do it your self its good other wise i recomend you to check out for machanic in your locality. also before you do that read this www.aroundoz.com/a_clinic_archive/refrigeration/easy_refrigerator_diagnostics.htm
All the best!!

There is some reason maybe not explained here. But I will help you if you want. Below is a simple test. The manual I need you to make sure if you have the RM2620 or another model to get the correct manual. That model has digital controls and that is controlled by a control board for switching from AC to DC to Propane. If the board will not switch then we need to look for that problem. Dometic, good refrigerate and great support group. Now here is a link to that model number problem solving PDF. With the manual we can work together to solve this.
Below is a link to their customer center. They are good about helping their customer worldwide. Thanks for the vote. I did search for that model in the Caravan 3 way style. They have hundreds of versions. Nothing falls exactly on your model number. You may need to surf their site awhile for your model and the control components. But a talk on the phone with them to get the correct direction for your model is better than the cost of driving to a dealer and getting repairs. YouTube has service movies covering Dometic.
