Probably a dirty burner tube. Or not enough air to the flame. I am sure it needs to be cleaned then retry. There are many threads on how here. May want to check the "files" section in the green header, the third listing from the left.

I am sure the burner needs to be cleaned. Search for "Gary Bunzer, RV Doctor" and he has LOTS of how to's for almost everything.
The RV Doctor: Search results for cleaning refrigerator burner

This should help.

You can try blowing out the burner flue with compressed air from a can or compressor.

Watch your eyes. Might be a bugs nest in there.
