NorCold Model N622 "F" Fault Code

When running on LP, I get fault code F which means the burner did not ignite. For somereason, this is showing up even though the burner does ignite. In fact it ignites and runs all the while the igniter is still clicking as if there is no fire. Eventually for what ever reason it eventually shuts off. I'm sure it's shutting down because it doesn't sense flame.

Do these have a photo-electric eye to sense the flame? I didn't see anything on the electrical schematic. Any help as to what I should check out would be greatly appreciated.

House batteries are at 12.7 v

Thanks for any advice & direction!

There is a ceramic element in the flame that sensors the heat from flame the ceramic may have a carbon build up and needs to be cleaned or its cracked causing your problem.

Thanks 007, I'll check that out... is that a part of the igniter or another part all together?

007, thanks for the link.... For the most part, the entire unit is pretty clean. The igniter had a little carbon on the tip, but nothing that would impede it's operation. The burner looks pretty good too and the flame is pretty strong. I reinstalled the igniter and although difficult to measure, I believe I got the 3/16" gap pretty good. The unit has been running longer now than what it has before, but the igniter is still sparking even though the flame is lit. Any ideas?

I was mistaken, I have a model N822... searching IRV2, I found this thread: Norcold N822 Power Board

Pretty informative and looks as if Niel went through the same as I'm experiencing. I followed what Neil did and have had the same results as what he got. I've already ordered my new board and igniter. Hopefully this will be the end of my troubles.
