Try lighting the burner manually from the back. Electric must be all the way to off before you can start the gas burner. One locks out the other. If you can light it from the back you have an ignition problem.

Caravan fridge wont ignite when on gas


does fridge work on 12 volt? If yes, 1 check and make sure you have 'good' gas. Next you can check the orvice/ignition area for any forgien matter, cobb web/spider webs must be removed. You can blow out that area with nan air hose. wear safety glasses!!! follow instruction for lighting. If you still do not have any flame you mave have a bad pilot valve.

Fridge will not work on gas


If you're sure the gas is igniting and making heat, you may have lost your refrigerant. It probably is ammonia, which smells very strong. Check your dealer for someone who can check it out.

Camper fridge ignites and runs on gas then fails


I beleive the thermocouple is faulty, this allows gas to flow once the flame is lit, but will also close the valve if faulty. Rateme

Dometic rm2852 does not run on gas


Sounds like your ignitor porcelain is cracked. Yes there is a miliamp signal sent to the circuit board to stop the ingnitor from arcing

FRIDGE WILL NOT IGNITE IN GAS MODE


The part you are looking for is the thermo couple. It senses the heat from the flame and holds the gas valve open. The clicking will try three times and then go into lock out. You then will need to reset on the front of the fridge. When installing the thermo couple do not over tighten.

Motorcaravan fridge auto-igniter continues to flash even when fridge has lit but the gas flame ,visible through small glass in the inside rear of the fridge remains constant.Usually a do-it-myselfer i am...


Yes the problem has been solved by cleaning jet and repositioning thermo-couple so that it is well into the flame.It would therefore appear that the combination of a partially blocked gas jet and a badly aligned thermo-couple triggered the auto-igniter .
Thanks for your interest,.......I am afraid that at my age now help has to come free of charge.A new auto-igniter would have been £69 and a thermo-couple £35.A new jet was a reasonable £6...........
