One of two problems. The auto switch is bad or the lower circuit board is not doing its job. You can call norcold technical or take the board to a service center and have it checked with the tester they should have. The lower board retails for 176.00. I looked at my tech file and it is a little vague on your particular situation. If I were repairing your fridge I would take the smart route and call technical. Hope you get your problem solved. If you need more help please feel free.

I have the same model refrigerator in my 1999 Eurovan. Before you leave for your trip, if you haven't used the refrigerator for some time make sure it will light before you leave and run it for awhile. This will help insure it will light when you are camping. A good trick I learned is to light one of the burners on the stove for a minute before you switch the refrigerator to propane. That seems to help. Also, don't release the ignitor button on the refrigerator until 15 to 20 seconds and then do so VERY VERY SLOWLY . One other trick is set the cooling dial in a different position than the "Start" position. If that doesn't work then turn it back to the Start position. Sometimes it takes several times to get the refrigerator to light but once it is it will stay on.
