I always check my propane
and turn the correct switches on.
Anyone else having trouble with their refrigerators?
What the model number of fridge do you have & its age? that would help a lot in making a suggestion as to what the issue may be.
The original Dometic fridge in my 92 has never gone out once light
on propane. It has run for days on end without issue. I do have problems lighting
it for the first time if it has not been used for more than a few months. Once its been light
once it normally lights
fairly easily the next time I use it - sometimes I do need to heat up the tubes a little bit (about 40 secs) with a lighter first though.
If it was my fridge and it was always hard to light
or going out I would first look at cleaning the tubing, as suggested all it takes is a spender web to create problems. If that was not the problem I would then have the propane pressure checked to make sure it was set correctly & there are no issues with the regulator.
