Just had to deal with this. Got the help I needed from The Norcold Guy. If the flame is present while the igniter is sparking, it means the power board isn't sensing the flame. They tell me there is a "flame sense circuit" on the circuit board. Replaced my board and it fixed the problem! Great company to work with too. Here is the board I needed for my 2003 Norcold 1200LRIM:

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.

My Ruud achhiever 90 starts to fire but as soon as the blower fires the burner goew out. I also noticed that the "igniter" on the end isnt firing. Could that cause the burner to not stay lit when the


There is an ignitor and a flame sensor. If the ignitor does not ignite the gas after a time, it goes out. If the flame sensor does not detect ignition the gas valve closes. When you start it you should see the ignitor come on like a light bulb and glow, then the gas valve opens and you get ignition. Then the flame detector turns on when the ignitor goes out. Flame detectors are like a chrome wire that has one connection to it and it sits part of the way in a burner. They get dirty and corroded. When that happens it shuts down. You can clean the flame detector with steel wool of scotch brite pads. Dont get too carried away doing that though.

Model 12110 IM Norcold-not cooling on AC or Gas..no fault codes coming up


Hi, if the burner lights in the 'gas' mode, the control board is OK. You most likely have a leak in the sealed refrigerant system, and you need to have the leak located and repaired. This is a job for a RV refrigeration technician. If you need to find the nearest Norcold authorized service dealer, go to www.thetford.com, and use their dealer locator menu.

My stove lights very slow with a low flame. Should the igniter stay on after it lights oven


Yes the ignitor stays on even after the burner is lit. The ignitor is wired in series with the oven valve. It sounds like the oven valve isn't opening all the way. A new ignitor should solve this problem. The old igniter builds up resistance and doesn't let the correct voltage through to the oven valve for it to open properly.

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.
