I have a three year old Dometic RM 2652. Sometimes it won't it won't light on gas. It gets gas to the burner but there is no spark. The electrode is clean and the gap is good. What's wrong?

Since the LP gas lights and the refrigerator works properly when you are hooked up to shore power AC, I suspect that your 12 volt battery voltage may be low.

The refrigerator propane ignition circuit is powered by 12 volt battery power. If your 12 volt supply is not adequate, then your LP gas ignition circuit won't function properly when not plugged into shore power. When you plugged into shore power AC, adequate 12 volt power was supplied to the refrigerator by your converter.

It could be something as simple as a bad ignitor. To know you will have to wait until the next time it happens. If you visit Bryant RV you will be able to down-load the service information on the refrigerator that you have.

Check and make sure the connections are good at the control board. After being stored awhile be sure to purge the lp gas system by lighting the stove top first. Then you may have to keep trying the ref. several times to get that line purged as well. I know that the last part of this post does not have anything to do with it getting an ignition spark but is is neccessary when you haven't used it in awhile.
