Customer Question

I have a dometic 2192 with Piezo ignitor. When I push the button i get no repsonse (doesn't click or anything). There is an indicator light that does no light either. I so on a thread that others have lit the pilot manually when the piezo doesn't work. Problem is I can't seem to find the pilot light. Can you help? Thanks

Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! if you follow the wire from the button back to the electrode, that is where the pilot is lit. There will be a thermocouple and a gas tube there as well.

This looks to be it? How do I light it? There is a nut over a tube at the bottom. it that where I should light?Thanks,

That is it, unfortunately it is enclosed and you cannot manually light it. You will probably need to replace the igniter assembly if the wiring is intact.

Yes, does it feel mushy? If so, it is broken.

Yes , so that must be my problem
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.
I believe so. Some models use an electronic ignition module, too. Does the wire from the ignitor go to the back of the piezo button?

You need the piezo lighter. The manual for that unit is below.
