Default Fridge not lighting or staying lit

Hi all,

I have a Norcold 6052 2-way.

It sparks but does not ignite most of the time. When it does light it will not stay lit.

I've cleaned out the burner and flue and it worked better the next time I tried it, but quickly reverted back.

The wires/sparker look good.

I am thinking it's the ignitiion module, but am looking for other suggestions to try before ordering a new one.

RV service centres here can't test the board for me and Norcold won't help due to "liability".

Thanks,
Mike

I've had similar problems with my Norcold refrigerator. What fixed it for me was replacing the burner.

Either it is not getting proper spark or not getting proper propane. Clean the orifice and make sure the propane solenoid is opening when you put the cleaned or new burner assembly in. You should carry a spare board with you. All this is just an opinion. I don't own a Norcold. Let us know the results when you correct the problem, please.

Yes, mine was quite corroded. I tried very hard to clean the "slots" in the burner, but never felt like I was getting them clean enough. I put in a new one and that solved my problem.

It's a good idea to purchase a spare. When I needed a new one, I bought two.

Hm, thanks for the response. My burner is clean and completely uncorroded and when it does light (only a few times out of dozens of attempts) it burns good for a few minutes but the fridge turns off.

I'm sorry my easy fix won't work for you. I just looked up the 6052 specs, and I see it's a newer unit than I have. Mine's manually lit.

Good luck with your troubleshooting.

The obvious thing would be that if it lights but won't stay lit it is very possibley lack of gas. Time to check the gas pressure at the frig to see if you have adequate pressure. If not, you may have a bad regulator, restricted line, etc.
