This answer was rated:

what would be the input DC voltage from the relighter to the interrupter on a Norcold LP refrig. would it be the full 12V. (the same voltage as goes into the relighter? The troubleshooting sheet I have says" to remove the wires from the interrupter and "jump interrupter terminals", does that mean to apply 12V. from another source?
I will pay the Fee if a Refrig. tech. can stay with me, till we figure out what part (s) I need to make it work on LP, it works fine on 12V. and 110v. power

I have limited knowledge on this model, have not seen it to much. I am going to put your question back up for other experts. I do not know when another expert will respond they come and go daily.... No need to respond to this as it will prevent others from viewing your question.... Robert
Hi, I’m Josie a moderator for this topic. It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still needing assistance from an other one of our professionals?

Hi Josie I would still like the answers to my question, however I will make an educated guess, shortly on the part(s) I may need. Any one with a background into LP fired refrig. opereating with a 12V. feed should know?

Regards, Fred

Whatever you do, do NOT put 12V to the interrupter terminals.
The interrupter is nothing more than a thernocouple, and it operates on mV (millivolts). Putting 12V to the terminals is guaranteed to burn the relighter.
When they say to jump the interripter terminals, they mean to simply run a wire from one terminal to the other.
