Atwood fridge

Have an Atwood fridge that was running on propane and stopped working while out fishing. The fridge will work on AC . Have propane to the value and have spark. Not sure what the problem is for sure. Can someone point me in the right direction? The problem is if it is the value domatic bought Atwood out and I canít find the value any where. Thanks for any help at all.

Welcome to iRV2 .

Do you have an idea of the age of the fridge or any model info ?

Do you have a manual for the fridge ?

Can you post a picture of the solenoid you need ?

Here's a site that may have a free manual.

Can you have a helper turn the fridge onto propane while you're at the solenoid checking for power and an internal clunk ?

Have you had the propane jet off the valve to check to see if it's plugged ?

Here's a picture of the valve on my Dometic the propane jet is easily removable ; clean with a spray cleaner and compressed air , do not run a wire through; some jets are laser cut ruby and easily damaged.

EDIT: Please ignore the yellow and red markings , I used the photo before to detail burner removal for another member .
Jet is removed with a 7/16 wrench.

Are you talking about talking the whole value off or just the tip? The tip is clean.

Just the tip ( jet ).

Have you had a chance to check the solenoid for power ( noise ) , are all the fuses on the board good ?

The fuses all good. I hear a single click and the clicking for the igniter and can see a spark. Will have to check for power at the solenoid. My problem is can’t find a 14035 gas value so can I just get a solenoid. I’m all new to this but the closest camper dealer is 100 miles away.

Power to the solenoid but is it opening the gas valve?
*Blue wire is DC+/Brown wire is Ground

Check the resistance on the solenoid
S/B roughly 48ohms

**Gas valves just open or close provided solenoid is working
so if orifice is clean and solenoid energizes gas should flow

What Model is your Dometic????

I'll pull the manual in the morning , " Americana " 2 door is the best I can say without checking . Cooling unit not original to fridge , changed prior to my purchase 12 years ago.

Do you see an issue ?

Here's a photo of the cooling unit S/N that I posted years back when someone ; maybe even you; confirmed it'd been replaced.
I bought the coach in 2010.

The simplest thing to do is put 12VDC to the solenoid operated valves (SOV), if you hear it click, but it does not issue gas, there may be an obstruction in it?

All the SOVs are made by independent manufactures, not Atwood and Dometic.
We have a lot of SOV valves, give us the numbers off of the valve, if it needs to be replaced, we may be able to help you?

Hope this helps.

CORRECTION:

The above post assumes that he SOV is powered by 12VDC.
I do not have the Atwood service manual here, so I cannot check.
The ID tag on the SOV will tell you the operating voltage, some fridge SOVs operate on 5VDC.
