refrigerator will not run on gas

I have a 2015 Casita SD 17 with a Dometic RM2454 refrigerator. the unit works with 12V and 120V but not gas. The burner starts up but with in a minute the igniter starts firing again the the unit shuts down. I have cleaned the gas jet and it looks very clean. The stove works great and tried and tested both tanks so I probably got good gas pressure.
thanks, Stan

I would start with the obvious. Gas in the tank? Valve open? Next I would clean the burner, chimney, etc. Sounds like you've done that. I think this fridge has a control board which requires 12volts. I'd make sure those connections were good. . Next, I would test the thermal couple. That's all the easy stuff.

Oh sorry.
Sounds like the burner needs a good cleaning. The sensor is not sensing the flame.

There are a lot of Utube videos on the subject.

OR the flame is just fine but the sensor is corroded or out of position or the connection is loose
When all else fails follow Raz

Verify that you have proper propane flow. Torn off propane. Open propane valve at the bottle slowly. Now go to your stove top and light both burners and note if burners are burning properly and of proper heigth. Noting that you have good flow after several minutes. Turn off the burners. Now check your battery voltage. On some of the nerwe fridges battery voltage comes into play with their circuit boards. Make sure your voltages are over 12 volts. Check and make sure there is battery power actually getting to the fridge.

Any further than this and you will need someone who is really into fridge repairs to dig in deep to find the problem.

Have the propane system checked by a professional (using manometer, etc..) and if no problems with the propane are found, check out http://www.fourwh.com/NewDometicRefrigeratorManual.pdf
