dometic fridge not working on propane

Just got back from a camping trip where my Dometic fridge did not work on propane. Made the repair myself at camp. My fridge works as follows:

If fridge is warm and you first turn it on in the gas mode, you will hear one large click which is the gas solenoid opening followed by some quieter faster clicks until the burner lights. In my case the gas solenoid opened but no igniter clicks. Found oxide on the igniter rod at the burner and clean it off with steel wool. After cleaning it the fridge lit first try.

If you don't hear the continuous clicking sound when first turned on in gas mode, your igniter is not working.

Thanks, johnnyslick. After doing several different tests ourselves, we talked to a gentlemen from Dometic today who said he believe we need a new igniter. (We never hear any igniter clicks, just the first large click.) It is going in for warranty work tonight. Glad you were able to fix yours! Thanks again.

Check the Propane regulator. When ours did the same, we found our regulator faulty, replacement cleared the problem.

I pushed the button and no results. I cleaned the igniter and no results. It appears that I am not getting any current to the igniter. Does this mean that my board is bad?

Make sure that your battery is fully charged ---- it's a 12V igniter.

Batteries at 85% (12.5VDC). Burner works fine when lit manually. Everything works fine on AC.
