Question about Dometic Refrigerators
Dometic RM3601 AES RV Refrigerator:
The refrigerator lights on gas but as soon as the ignitor quits sparking the burner goes out. (approx 2-3 minutes). The gas failure light comes on. It works normally on 120 VAC. The thermocouple was tested good. The gas flame is nice blue in color and normal height. Thank you for any help you can give. Ken
tap on the gas valve with a wrench,not too hard but not too light about 10 times,the valve is probably sticky from not being used,re-light and see what happens.

Sounds like you have some blockage issues and the venturi tube and pilot may need a more complete cleaning. It's possible that the supply pipes have rusted enough on the inside that you're getting small rust particles in the gas and thus into the fridge. You may have to replace the supply lines to resolve this, but...
...rather than 2nd guess what's happening, here's the a link to the diagnostic service manual for your model. You may have to enter in a code to access it once on the website, but this manual will help you troubleshoot your fridge like a pro.
Hope this helps and you solve the problem. Best regards!
