RM 2601 no gas operation Christopher L Rabe 4-18-17  
My RM 2601 refrigerator works fine in the electric mode but not in gas mode. When switching to gas the indicator light will not come on. It has occasionally flickered. So I never know if it is ready to press the igniter. I've cleaned the back of the refrigerator but nothing has changed.

Hi Christopher,

Many details dictate how you go about troubleshooting. Most common, if the unit has sat for a while, is clogging, but you say the unit works fine on electric. So, here is a link on this site to the Dometic Manual, which contains a troubleshooting diagram on page 4. Use it as a guide and do it yourself.

Also, since you say the light flickers intermittently, you may do a visual inspection on the wiring. Look for corrosion or exposed wire, or loose connections.

Basically check from simplest to hardest:

- Check gas flow
- Check the valve operation
- Check the igniter
- Check high-voltage cable
- Check the electrode
- Check the solenoid
- Check the wiring
- Check the circuit board

If you don't feel comfortable at any point, then take it to a technician. They should be able to do a diagnostic, and before repairing, have them give a quote.

Hope this helps...
