My Dometic refrigerator would not work on propane. It worked OK on AC and DC but gas mode was inoperative and the Check light came on. I checked connectors and such as best I could with no joy.

By putting the refer into Diagnostic Mode per page 17 of this link I was able to force the refer to go into the various operating modes and I could hear the gas solenoid open and close, a noise absent during my previous starting attempts.

After sequencing through the diagnostic modes three times I was able to start the refer on propane and it has been working fine ever since. I suspect the long cold winter without refer operations had something to do with the anomaly and that the dagnostic mde sequencing solved the immediate problem.
