Currently working my way through a refresh of a mid-70s Trillium
1300. Working on the fridge
at the moment and can't wrap my head around it. The fridge
works OK on AC, haven't bothered on DC but for the life of me I cannot get it to run on gas. And by not getting it to run, I mean I cannot even get gas to the pilot light
. Thus far I have:
: removed and cleaned burner assembly
: removed and cleaned gas line from controls to burner
: by passed all gas lines and connected directly to tank (and reg of course, which is new and runs the stove top just fine)
: blown everything I can think of with compressed air
: white gas knob is turned to Gas ON, electric switch to OFF
: while trying to start I have pressed the red thermocouple bypass button
: interior electric switch is OFF and gas is on medium (3)
I've tried a number of times in the hopes that there is a blockage but I feel like I am missing something simple when it comes to the valve/dial assembly as I THINK it should be a simple On OFF situation.
Any insight??? I am thinking it must be something simple...
