Propane burner won't stay lit

The burner in my Dometic refrigerator lights up quickly but won't stay lit. There is good gas supply. The burner housing was recently cleaned out and it worked well after that. After sitting all winter without being used it now won't stay lit. It works well on 12vdc and on 110ac.

SOURCE: Dometic refridgerator won't stay lit on Propane

A bit more info is needed. What model #, and how old is it? In back, does it have a computer board (underneath a green or black plastic cover, appros 4" x 6")? Im guessing that it does, ('cause you get an error message,) Make sure that you have a good 12 volts going to the board at all times, and make sure that the glass fuses on the board are not blown. If that checks out, than its a real good bet the you have a defective board. For Americana models, you're going to need a Dometic board, and for other models, an aftermarket board will usually do. Althoiugh the OEM ones have a better chance of fixing your problem.

SOURCE: dometic rm2453. Works

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.

CAN YOU MANUALLY LIGHT A DOMETIC RM2652 PROPANE FRIDGE IN A 2006 TRAILER


It will not light manually as the ignition probe is electronically controlled. If it doesn't stay lit normally then it will more then likely not stay lit when trying to light manually.

If you are lighting the pilot corectly and waiting for the thermo couple to warm up and then setting it to on, then the thermo couple is probably bad. Good luck!

CHECK LIGHT COMES ON IN LIMP MODE


Hi!!

Check propane tank is open and full. The check light comes on when there is air on the line or no gas reaches the burner. If propane is OK, press power botton OFF and then ON and it will try to lit up again. This is standard procedure, sometimes you have to do it a few times.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!

I have dometic modle R M 2333. It will not cool when set to gas. But is ok on AC. Burner flame is good, gas flow is good.


If the unit has a good flame and is staying lit throughout the cycle of the fridge, then you probably have a bad cooling unit. Does is cool ok on Electric? If so, then there is another problem. You may have rust build up in the flue that is not allowing the heat from the gas to work correctly. Try taking a screwdriver and small claw hammer. Remove the cover from the burner assembly and place the head of the screwdriver on the flue just above the burner. Tap the screwdriver lightly with the hammer and see if rust falls. If so, continue to do this until it stops. You then need to blow out the burner and try the fridge again.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

Why is it difficult to light our dometic refrigerator, when using it on propane?


Hi: In my travel trailer I find it is easier to light my Dometic if I bleed the lines by starting my stove top. It uses a lot more gas to get lit and floods the lines with propane. Your fridge uses such a small amount of gas it takes a long time to bleed the line to it. Don't focus on just the oven.... run any propane appliance on the way to it first. I hope this helps, Jeff
