Hello Ron,

There might be a couple issues going on here.

First off, your flame sense is not working like it should. This is the electrode that partially sits in the burner flame. There is a wire that goes back to the ignitor module. Check it for continuity (electrode to connector), it should be near zero ohms. Also, check the screws on the burner housing assembly. These need to be tight and rust free because they secure the ground path for the ignitor. Make sure that your ground wires are clean and tight.

Given the history of the electric side, your power supply board may be on its way out as well. This can affect both modes (electric and gas, as well as 12volt cooling - but you are not equipped for that).

You can find a service manual at Look under the service manuals section, find the link for norcold 600

I can't find the wiring diagram for my whirlpool refridgerator.... MOD.#ET19RKXFN01 SER.#EG3222178. Can you please help. I need to change the defrost timer.....Thanks

I will try to locate a wiring diagram for your model ET19RKXFN01 but to change the defrost timer you will only need to know its location. Here is a link to the repair parts=> ET19RKXFN01_Repair_Parts_List
Go to page 5 of the repair parts list and you will see item number 4 Then on page 6 of the parts list you will see the timer part number beside the item 4. That is your defrost timer part number 2193084 Defrost Timer

Your refrigerator is an older model and may have the wiring digram in a packet behind the kick plate in the front near floor. Changing the defrost timer will not require use of a wiring diagram. Simply remove the old timer and replace the new defrost timer by plugging it into the wiring harness. The defrost timer can be found behind the control panel inside the fresh food compartment where the controls are located above the top shelf. If you have questions just let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

Freezer works ok but the fridge doesn't

are you running gas to oper the frig in the rv or electricty if only using the heating element for the frig RV STYLE ONLY maybe starting to make and break causing intermittent cooling or not enough cooling in frig but at all thing concerned try to increase you temp setting higher if you have that option
