Question about Dometic Refrigerators
THE FLAME WONT STAY LIT...THERE IS A STRONG BLUE FLAME WHEN I LIGHT IT BUT AFTER A FEW MINUTES WHEN I RELEASE THE BUTTON THE FLAME GOES OUT....IT WORKS FINE ON ELECTRICITY (110) HAVENT TRIED DC....
Check the burner assembly. 1 screw, remove the sheet metal cover and clean it. The burner collects rust. This is the likely. Other issues would be the gas pressure usually checked with a manometer. Should 11" of water column. If your furnace works good then the gas pressure is probably ok. Also could have a faulty ignitor which sends a miliamp signal back to the circuit board. Check the burner first, after that leave the cover off and turn the fridge on. Watch the ingnitor attempt to lite the burner. Be sure the spark is going to the burner and not shorting out on the sheet metal it is mounted in. If it is shorting to the frame the ignitor needs replacing.

Interesting! Did you remove a shield that was there before? The only time I have had a problem like that is when we took the shield coving the pilot light area off and didn't put it back on right. You might want to check and make sure that everything is in place.
