Resolved Question:

We have a Sanyo Absorption Refrigerator Model SRA 0621 that has not been turned on for the last 4 years. We are having trouble lighting the unit, even though we have followed the "turn on" instructions printed on the control panel cover. The propane gas supply to the unit is good. Any help or technical print outs would be greatly appreciated.

After sitting for that length of time, you probably have dust blocking the pilot assembly. Try vacuuming the area with a ShopVac to see if you can clean it out. If that does'nt work, remove the pilot assembly, and clean it with laquer thinner.
