I'm new here, and hoping someone can assist me. I just bought a 1985 Bigfoot
17' trailer, and it's got, what I assume, is the original RM361 fridge
, by dometic.
I'm trying to test it out on LP. I've read some manuals, watched some YouTube, and I believe I'm lighting
it correctly. I can light
my stove without problems, and everything that I can tell should be working.
However, when I go to light
, the indicator window Sparks orange, and keeps a slight orange light
in the window. It may be lit, but I'm really not sure. Everything I've seen seems to indicate that the indicator window should be a blue flame once it's fully lit. I get no blue flame.
I leave the fridge
for a bit, and when I got back the flame is so slight that I'm sometimes not sure it's even still there. I spark the ignitor again, and get the orange spark and flame again.
I've opened the back panel, and the pipes are warm to the touch, but not hot enough to burn. I can hear no propane
flow from anywhere.
I'm a complete trailer noob, as well as a fiberglass noob. Hoping someone will have some ideas as to what's going on here. I know it's a super old fridge...
