Check recent strings on refrigerator efficiency.
Thanks to you, Accumack and Phil. I DO have a baffle behind the UPPER access panel outside and it does curve upward. It looks professional enough to have been done at factory; unlike the lower baffle done by that clown in Apache Junction, AZ.
I'll be putting in my new igniter this week, and then see if it works any better after that. The scorch marks and burnt igniter wire give me pause. Still I would not be surprised that the "scabbed in" baffle may have been doing more harm than good.
Phil, I wish I could offer some advice, but would be the blind leading the blind.
P.S. I-RV, you know why they don't send donkeys to college, right??
