Refrigerator sparked keeps going after flame is lit

My Dometic dm2652rbx lights fine (first spark). Nice blue flame. Then, the spark thing starts going off again and the refrigerator stops and check light comes on. I've cleaned it out with compressed air. Other steps? I'm at 6,500' in Coulter Bay campground Tetons with a full refrigerator. Limited technical knowledge.

Mine was doing the same thing. It was a bad board. Had it replaced and it works fine now.

Start by cleaning the igniter/flame sensor with a fine emery board.

If that doesn't fix it then GJones is probably right.

P.S. We loved Coulter Bay when we were there.

Thanks you two! Right now, it's lit so crossing my fingers it stays that way. This is day one of a seven day camping trip and the drive is full. Very beautiful here!!

If you don't use your trailer often, sometimes dust and gunk can build up on the sensor. Once it has run a bit, the flame burns it off and it works better (same with heater).

Thanks, Ben. It's a motor home and I full time in it. I cleaned it out with compressed air and it seems to be working. It also might be the altitude (6,500').
