I am not sure but, I think there is a pilot that needs to be re-lit. I am not sure where that might be though. I will be watching this post though because mine doesn't seem like it working on our Freelander.

Don't believe there is a pilot - electric ignition. You should here it snapping to light the propane. Try switching on an off from propane a few times to purge the system. If you here the snapping but no light, the burner probably needs a cleaning. Very easy procedure. Turn off frig.You basically unscrew the bottom of the chimney, remove it and take small brush like a toothbrush to clean the grooves in the burner. You also might turn the small gas valve on and off a couple of times. One other possibility is if water got sprayed into the frig grate. Happened to me going thru truck wash. Took a hair dryer to dry all the connections.

Does the light illuminate when she opens the fridge door? Fridge control panel requires 12V to operate the fridge. If you have a switch to turn off 12V to the RV and it is in the "off" position the fridge won't work. It's a good place to start checking.

Oops, didn't see the part of your post that stated it "works on electricity", sorry.
