FRIDGE WILL NOT IGNITE IN GAS MODE

MY DOMETIC RM2652 WORKS FINE IN ELECTRIC MODE. WHEN SWITCHED TO GAS WILL NOT IGNITE. I HAVE MANUALLY LIT THE GAS AND FRIDGE WORKS FINE. I HAVE REMOVED THE ELECTRODE BUT NOT SURE IT IS THE PROBLEM. CHECKED VOLTAGE ON ELECTRODE APPROX 10 VOLTS. DOES THIS FRIDGE SEND VOLTAGE TO ELECTRODE SEVERAL TIMES IE CLICKING SOUND WHEN ATTEMPTING TO LIGHT, MINE DOES NOT.

    Hi I have the same problem. My fridge clicks 2 or 3 times when I press the on off button on again. It the comes up with the check light after 5 or 6 seconds. How do you manuallly light the gas?



    Thanks,

    To manually light I had to remove the plastic vent cover on the side of
    the trailor which exposed the fridge components. I then removed one
    screw which secured a piece of aluminum which covered the end of the
    ignitor and the gas tube. I then pressed the on button of the fridge,
    and went to the end of the gas tube and used a lighter to ignite the
    gas. It worked the first try. Obviously this is not a permanent fix, I
    only did this to see if my only problem was igniting the gas which it
    was. I have been told by a local repair shop that my problem is not the
    ignitor but small unit that produces the voltage for the ignitor. I
    don't have the part number at this time but I will get it and sent it.

    My RM 2652 fridge does not in the gas mode. I have a good pilot light but the burner does not start up to cool the fridge. Could it be the thermocouple not telling the to light when called for. Also when the fridge is in working order it is suppose be cooling while going down the road in the gas mode. Need help with this problem.



    Thanks, Ray Eberle

    it was working fine now it works on electric but when you change it over to gas it ignites and then goes out after about 30 sec plenty of lp on board

    the automatic lighter does not work on gas operation. when you push the button to light the gas the light does not come on and it will not light. You can light it with a match in the back while having someone hold the button in the fridge. the fridge works fine just won't light automatically on gas?

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.

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.

Dometic rm2652 re-ignitor


Dear sir/madam,

Turn the refrigerator off and remove the wire
between the electrode and igniter. Now turn the
refrigerator to the gas mode. If no internal
clicking sound is heard the igniter is defective.
It is important to remove the high voltage wire
that goes to the electrode from the igniter when
you are checking the igniter for operation. The
high voltage wire and the electrode can be
shorted to ground causing the igniter reigniter
to think that the flame is lit, resulting in no
spark on gas operation.

thanks
good luck

I just replaced the converter in my motorhome and everything works but the fridge won't work on house electricity, only gas ???


Hello,

The old converter may have blown out the control board for your 'fridge. This is quite common if the voltage exceeds 15.5 volts, and when there is a ripple voltage (AC voltage component) riding on top of the DC voltage.

Gas / LP mode is the default for this fridge, a fail safe mode.

You can find the service manual for your fridge here.

Fridge will not work in gas mode.


You mat have to clean the pilot light and the ignition lube. Spiders like to build nests in the tubes which obstructs the proper gas flow.

If it doesn't click or the light doesn't flicker it is probably either you don't have good strong 12 volt power getting to the fridge(12 volt required only to light on gas the first time) or else the little gas igniter module went out looks like this only sometimes black.

Now if it won't stay lit. It is something wrong with either your flame or your thermocouple. First try just blowing out the the flu right where the flame comes out blow compressed air in so if there is dirt or cobweb in there it comes out the back side. If that doesn't help disconnect your thermocouple and wipe the end and then connect it back up and tighten it. If it still wont stay lit still replace the thermocouple.
