Dometic 8555 refrigerator won't run on propane

In the propane mode unit goes to fault code. The ignitor doesn't spark and no propane flow. Tried lighting manually with no luck I'm thinking the control module is bad. works fine on 110v and 12 v. Propane no. Any suggestions on where to look..

Power it down, remove burner assy, clean and reinstall, make sure the stark/sense electrode is the proper distance from the burner.

Not many parts available for that model
Burner Control Ignitor Unit is available BUT very Pricey

It does control gas and spark.

No gas flow/no spark...bad control unit

You do have good propane flow/pressure to all other propane appliances...Correct?
Have you made several attempts to run fridge on GAS?
**Sometimes if not used routinely the propane flow to fridge can take several lighting attempts
Is it time for YOUR Medication or Mine?
