Good Afternoon ,

can you tell if its trying to light when you disconnect the electric ?

It may just be air in the gas line if the gas was off over the winter , it can take a little while and a few tries till it will light

No, it doesn’t light nor seem like it’s trying to when electric is disconnected.No but all the other propane appliances are operable inside and out of the camper.
RV Mechanic: Nachum Wagschal, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

do you have the model number ?

I will usually take the outside cover off and see if i can hear it do anything when you unplug it on the outside .

Also check the fuse on the circuit board .

The fridge has the smallest gas line and flame , so it will take much longer than all the other gas appliances

yes that is in auto mode , when electric is disconnected it should automatically switch . if it doesn't light , the check light will come on in a few minutes .

If the gas button is out it will try to run on gas regardless if there is electric going it

Ok I just unplugged from electric and going to wait to see if it kicks on. What's the wait time typically? Also will the light in the fridge remain off in propane mode?
RV Mechanic: Nachum Wagschal, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

no it shouldn't be off , you should hear it in the back clicking when you unplug it or when its turned to propane mode , it will only take a few minutes at most

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
