What model number is ***** fridge?

When you open the door, does the light come on?

Have you tested the fuse in the fuse panel and the fuse(s) on the back of the fridge?

Have you tested the AC plug at the back of the fridge?

Does the flute get hot on AC electric and propane?

RV Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Hello, Pam

I am on a customer call, I will be done in a moment.

With the rear cover off outside and at the back of the fridge. The flute is a metal pipe in the corner running vertically that hides the flame of the propane burner, kind of like a chimney.

How long do you try to diagnose for $26I guess no response unless i pay $26?
RV Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Let's hold off on the call for now until it is needed, if at all. Were you able to test the flute to see if it gets on when on propane?

Since you were not able to reply to the info request I sent. I cannot be as accurate and thorough as I would like in my answer. I hope what I can provide does help.

Possible causes for this concern can be a faulty ignitor, a faulty circuit board. If the burner is getting hot then it can be a loss of refridgerant ammonia.

Thank you for seeking us for help, I hope I provided what was needed. Press reply if you need to follow up. If you liked my answer please let me know so I can mark your question complete. Moose
