lighting the fridge

The push button lighter on our Domestic died and we felt we were doomed to spoiled mayo. I called up tech support and they talked us through manually lighting the beast from outside. Sweet! I'll post some pictures tomorrow. Time for bed now.

Good news! When you wake up, how about letting all the rest of us know what they said? Might save someone else's bacon.. 'er Mayo!

Here's what you do. First open the side panel and look for the chimney and find a little panel at the base. Take out the screw and remove the cover.

You'll see the igniter and gas orifice.

Light your match and have the person inside push the RIGHT button and hold it down.

Outside hold a match over the orifice and light the gas. Once lit have the person inside hold the button for 30 seconds.

When the button is released the flame should stay lit. Put the panel back and screw it on. Close up and all should be ok.

This is for MY heater. Yours will probably be different, but the same principals apply.

How would you do it if you don't have the extra person on the inside? One just might be alone in the woods with no one in site to help you...

Yep, as described here, Mary Ann, this is a terrific solution if you and a significant other travel together. For me, it wouldn't be a solution.

I took a small piece of water hose 4". I used a wood screw to screw down one end to the wood inside the panel. I then took a tiny screwdriver and pushed it into the open end of the hose. There you have a tiny screwdriver holder and you'll never loose the screwdriver for lighting the fridge.

You could lay a small candle or anything else burning in the vicinity of the gas burner and go inside and push the gas button. Once the gas flame is lit, it will stay lit. Then remove the candle.

Just a thought but if this topic could be saved in Document Center it would be easier for someone to find IF they needed this information in a hurry.

Just a suggestion,as I know it isn't a document ,but it is a good idea for a quick fix if in need.
