Re: gas stove

Make sure the fitting on the tank where your line comes from isn't freezing up. I don't know about large propane tanks but they might have the new safety valve in the shut off valve in your tank as well. Trying shutting off or if you don't feel safe maybe somebody else shut the valve off then reopening it.

Fridge worked fine on gas last night but won't today.. Gas is at cook top

Gas refrigerators work off a small flame. That flame heats a part some call a thermocouple. Over time that part goes bad. Also Propane produces a carbon like soot. It sometimes blocks the small hole the gas flows through. May just need cleaned near the flame area.

Norcold fridge berps and display says No flame

check for a gas shut off inside the fridge cabinet as well. You may have to bleed all the air out of the lines before the fridge will get gas. either keep trying or run stove burners to make sure gas is working. Also look for debris inside the burn chamber near the thermocouple/pilot light.
I had rust fall from the exhaust tube and block the burner area. Cleaned it up and it works fine now.

Have dometic fridge RM2553. Has been going great. Yesterday showed on red at dial BUT when checked vent it was hot; so going but not showing in green. Safe?I live in my Jayco caravan so this recent problem...


The safety mechanism will still be working. The only case it won't be working is when the safety mechanism itself is causing the problem. In that case there will be no risk because flame will be forced to turn off.

The indicator on red is telling you that the fridge is not cooling. It does not affect the safety of your Dometic.

The safety mechanism in your Dometic works using a thermocouple and a safety valve. When either of this will fail the gas flame will turn off, and the fridge will stop cooling. The safety mechanism works even when it is broken, as it does not allow gas valve opening.

About poor cooling, there are a number of reason that may result in insufficient cooling with this kind of fridge.

Check if there is flame, if there is no flame, then testing will start from igniter, coil, flame sensor and safety valve.
Ensure that there is enough ventilation.Thermostat and cooling unit must be tested if flame operations are OK.
On LP gas, check filter. Check pressure regulator and gas from the lines.

Electric and battery working fine but gas will not come on. It keeps clicking and then the red light comes on


Assuming this is on a travel trailer / RV, correct?

The red "check" light indicates that the fridge was not able to detect the presence of a flame from the burner area. This could be due to low LP gas pressure (causes different flame size), no LP gas (tanks are exhausted / turned off), damaged wiring going to the igniter / sense electrodes, defective gas valve, or damaged igniter / control board.

Gas will not stay lit the lighter wil ignite for about 4 seconds then diminish

Your propane supply may be nearly exhausted, or your gas valve is having trouble staying open.

To check the gas valve, you will need a helper. Turn the fridge off. Open the lower outside vent. Put a finger on the gas valve. Ask helper to turn it on, you should feel the solenoid snap. If you don't feel it release and flame dies out, then gas valve may be defective. Measure the voltage with a multimeter instead of using finger. If voltage remains when flame dies, then defective gas valve.

If the gas valve snaps shut and then flame dies, you are looking at a corroded / damaged / misaliged flame sense. You will need a service manual, or the procedure to clean may be listed in the owner's manual. Either way, clean the electrode assembly, and reassemble. If still same problem, follow high tension wire back to circuit board, and make sure it is on good and tight with clean connections. If still not working, the replace the electrode assembly. If it remains inoperable, then circuit board may be defective. Most RV shops now have the ability to test circuit boards before purchasing a replacement.

I have a freezer that does not work it clicks on for a few sec then cuts off what could be wrong

The clicking is the electronic ignitor trying to light the gas.
Either it's not getting any gas to light , or the flame sensor is not telling the computer that there is flame , so it shuts down the gas.
Most fridges have a small shut off right at the gas valve in the back of the fridge , it might be turned off. Put your ear up to the back cover of the fridge , if you hear it sparking and then you hear flame but it goes out after a few seconds , than it is the flame sensor. If you never hear the flame blowing , than it is not getting gas. Could be several different reasons. If you have disconected your tanks , maybe the gas has just not made it to the fridge yet. Newer ignitors try 3 times and then shut down if no flame is detected. Old ones only try once.

It sounds like your refrigerant is leaking out. Without proper test gear you can't confirm this, but the first thing that happens is it stops cooling.
You need to call out a qualified refrigeration engineer to check it. You may be able to see oil at the back of the fridge around the leaking joint. Do not leave it switched on and running if you have a leak. Have you smelt anything unusual recently? The gas isn't dangerous in the quantities you would have from a leak unless it is exposed to a naked flame. Then it breaks down into a gas similar to mustard gas which was used during the first world war. If you didn't notice the smell of the refrigerant gas, you won't miss it if it is around a naked flame.

RM2652 runs a short while on gas then gas shuts off.

That was my same problem. I posted yesterday but I don't think I did it right! Anyway I had stated I thought it was the thermocouple and that's what it was. The millivolts while connected were down around 13.5 or so and that low of a voltage is not enough for the control board to verify there is a flame present. I replaced the thermocouple and it now reads 33.5 millivolts while the flame is on. So before you buy a new control board, make sure it's not something less expensive. I paid almost $40 for the replacement, but I am in a hurry to get this unit repaired. You can find them on-line for about half that.

Dometic rv fridge runs fine on elec, lights on gas but in one min shuts down. Dometic RV S1621 fridge runs fine with elec, when start gas operation. The burner runs for about 30 seconds then shuts off....

It is key that all control switches are in the correct position, depending on what power source you are using, gas, electric, etc. If the switches are not in the proper setting, the unit will not operate.

Here's the manual for your fridge that should be printed out for your use and reference (and reading enjoyment). It has all the info needed to operate and troubleshoot it.

Typically, when using any gas appliance with a pilot light, the sensor has to first be hot enough to trigger it to allow the safety gas shutoff to open and allow the gas to flow to the pilot/burner. Follow the instructions and you should be all set.

Hope you find this helpful and best regards!
