it will initially light and start to cool just fine on LP. i leave it on overnight to cool before our trip. at some point it shuts off and the red X is illuminated. it wont try to relight. if i switch it over to AC it works perfect. it will cool down to 20+ degrees. if i try to switch back over to LP again it wont light.
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 3 years ago

OK

Thanks for clearing that up, please give me several mins to type a response, I am also going to grab you a service manual.

I've blown out the burner tip and the flu. I've also replaced the Igniter because i had an extra one. nothing has changed.
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 3 years ago

OK

That info is helpful as well, I am going to give you a service manual you will need a volt meter to do some checks, I think with the manual and a volt meter you will be able to find the issue. Click HERE for the service manual and see LP Gas Mode of Operation and it will step you through the troubleshooting process, this is what I would do if this came into the shop. Check your DC power supply as well when this is happening, if the DC voltage was dropping off or you had a poor connection it can cause the fridge to shut down.

IF you need help during the troubleshooting please let me know, I am around daily and respond WHEN I can.
