Oven And Refrigerator - 2001 All American Sport
I have been living in a 2001 All American Sport since July and have two functioning issues with my oven and refrigerator.
I'll start with the oven because it's probably the most simple. It's a Magic Chef but I'm unsure of the model number. Range works great, but because I did not receive an owner's manual for the oven, I'm completely unsure of the oven's operation. I have never owned or used a gas oven in a house either, so I'm quite ignorant of their operation.
How is the oven supposed to light? I have a "Pilot On" spot on the temperature knob, but the pilot will not light. Is it self lighting, or does it require being lit manually? I'm scared to death to mess around with this because I'm in no mood to set myself on fire (which almost happened) or blow up my trailer because I filled the living space with propane.
Now, the refrigerator, it's a Domentic Americana, Model RM 2652. It works great on gas, but when plugged in to a campground hookup, it will not switch over to electric operation. The "Check" light does not illuminate in this event either, and this caused me to lose a fair amount of food early on in my travels.
Recently a friend took a look at it and checked power in and around the circuit board under the unit, and was able to trace power to the heating element and found it had 37 ohms, but don't know if that's correct or not. At this time we were able to feel it heating and assumed electrical operation had commenced. However when I reinstalled the protective cover over the circuit board, we heard a click (similar to the sound when a camera flash goes off) and gas operation resumed. I assume broken wire, but is there a possibility the circuit board has damage?
