The check light can come on for many reasons.

It could be low DC voltage, electrode out of adjustment, LP pressure problem, dirty gas orifice, circuit board problem.

Make sure you have good DC voltage when this is happening, if you have a volt meter you can check voltage at the back of the fridge with a volt meter, it should not be dropping under 10.5 volts, if the voltage was dropping off the fridge would not work properly.

Make sure the electrode (what sparks) is about 3/16" over the burner tube, the electrode senses the flame and sends a signal to the board, if the board does not see the signal it will shut down and then the check light will come on.

Make sure the burner tube is clear and clean, that sits below the electrode get an air nozzle and blow it out.

I would also pull the gas orifice and soak it in alcohol.

Finally the LP pressure should be verified we have to assume it is good but it should be checked yearly with a manometer, I would leave that for last.

In order to help you out some more click HERE for a service manual, see page 5 "check light on" and follow the troubleshooting.

I hope this points you in the right direction, if you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
