I am experiencing a problem with the Norcold N621 Refrigerator in my Winnebago motorhome.
The refrigerator runs fine on electric. However, when I switch over to propane, the flame lights, but you can hear a continuous ticking and then the flame blows out. If I start out using propane, the same problem occurs also. It seems to me that the lighting unit does not sense a flame and keeps trying to ignite until it blows itself out. I have already taken the ignitor unit apart and cleaned it, but am still having this problem. Any advice or suggestions.

Based on what you describe it makes sense that it senses No Flame. There must be a sensor near the flame to detect heat. Did you search online for a schematic or manual for your Norcold to clean/adjust this sensor?

Try going to the Bryant Rv web site. From the home page go over to the "Service Documents" page. Scroll down the list to find the model number of your Fridge. From there you can download the complete Norcold service manual you unit. It will be in Adobe Acrobat format. The owner (Chris Bryant) has been kind enough to make all of them accessible. Hope this helps you find the problem.

First try cleaning the electrode. Be careful not to put too much pressure on it as the porcelin can break and if so you will need a new one. While you are in the burner area be sure it is clean of any debris. THe electrode mus be in the flame and about 3/16" gap between it and the burner. Otherwise you may need a board. Some of the parts places with shops have a tester to verify a bad board. Good luck and let us know how you come out.
