New from PA/Need help

I just purchased a 2000 Winnebago Rialta. I am hoping some of you can help me figure out what is wron with my norcold refrigerator. I tried to turn it on in the propane gas mode, and it will not light. It sounds like it is trying because I can hear it clicking, but it never stops clicking. So I assume it is not lighting. I turned on the main valve at the tank, and tested the furnace, which worked fine. So I know there is gas in the tank, but it doesn't seem to be getting to the ref.

Any suggestions for me?

Walt, The orifice for the reefer burner is very small, so it takes several minutes to get gas up to the igniter. Since the furnace lights you apparently have propane in the tanks. If it doesn't ignite after several attempts you may have something blocking the orifice. Be careful cleaning it as the hole is quite small and can be damaged.
If this doesn't work my suggestion is to Google Norcold and read their trouble shooting guides that will help you diagnose better than I could explain it.

The fridge may have lit but the spark reliter may just never turn off due to misalignment of the thermocouple. Open the refer outside door and look if it id lit or not. Regards nm1oqrz

dont know if this helps or not but when I bought my 87 winnie a couple months ago Had the same problem I turned the gas off and opened the little access hole by the burner and sprayed a little canned air in there then let it sit a few minutes then tried to light it again and it fired right up and has worked good since
