RE: norcold frig won't run on lp

Again, thank you all for your willingness to help. I had watched a video that showed the igniter staying red out on the end while the burner was on. I got to wondering if mine was not getting hot enough to send the signal back to the board so I used a small propane torch to hold on the igniter and sure enough the burner would stay lighted. I then adjusted the igniter from about 3/16 to about 1/4 above the burner and at that point it did glow just a tad and the burner stays lighted. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Thank you again for your help, Winston

You could try cleaning the connector and contacts on the ignitor board. I did clean the contacts.

RE: norcold frig won't run on lp

It is very rare for a Ignitor and board to fail. The most common cause is the very inexpensive Spark electrode/wire. If any part of the spark electrode ceramic "leaks"(hairline cracks you have difficulty seeing) the return voltage to the control board, it shuts the flame down. Doug I did a continuity check on the spark electrode/wire. Not sure that means anything but read somewhere to do that test. Certainly cannot see any cracks in the ceramic.

norcold frig won't run on lp

My Norcold 6162 will run on ac and will light on lp until igniter quits sparking, then the flame goes out. I have removed burner orifice, cleaned very carefully, cleaned igniter. Has a pretty blue flame in the center of heat tube until igniter quits sparking and then goes out immediately. I am suspecting the igniter module but at $130+ I would like to be more condident. Hoping someone out there has experienced this and can assist. I would be very appreciative. New to RV.NET and have posted this in two different forums. Hoping you will have patience with an old man.

RE: norcold refrigerator problem on lp

Thank you so much for your quick reply. I did clean the terminals with an eraser. Thank you also for the better prices. Went over and looked at the one you attached, it looks a little different than what I have. Will it plug right into the existing plug.

norcold refrigerator problem on lp

I have a Norcold 6162 frig that will run on ac and will light on lp but immediately go out when igniter quits sparking. I have cleaned burner orifice, cleaned igniter, checked igniter for continuity. Burner flame is pretty blue and centered in the tube. I am thinking it might the igniter control but at $130 or so I would like to be more certain. I would appreciate any help.
