We have a 2019 Durango
With a norcold Fridge. Works
Fine on electric. On lp it
Doesn’t keep fridge cold. No fault lights or anything but fridge gets
To 55 degrees on lp. Even when turned as cold as possible. on electric it is In the 30’s. piolot lite is lit and looks fine. Nice blue flame. What could be the issue?

The main burner is not that large of flame.
What make and model of refer?
Most refers are DSI(direct spark Ignition) so they do not have pilot lights.
Open outside access to the refer, locate the cover over the burner area. Remove cover and make sure the flame is directly under the 3/4 inch pipe inside the stack.

It’s a norcold n8x. Burner is lit. Looks like nice blue flame with no flickering. It looks to be lined up under the pipe. I can here some occasional sounds coming from that area too....hard to describe...like crinkling tinfoil? How does the temp control work on lp? Should I see any difference in the flame when going from low to hi temp? Or does that have nothing to do with the flame? It is set in high now. When on electric the temp gets back down to 30’s in the fridge if set on coldest setting.

Just a little more info...it’s a 2019 KZ camper and this is our second season with it. Fridge worked fine on lp last season and earlier this year. Problem just started occurring this weekend.

I,d pull the burner assembly ,not hard and theres u tubes on it ,, but sounds like its clogged? out of line? if your not up to this get a friend or call a rv tech in your area, NOT A DEALER,it,ll be on there lot for weeks and cost hundreds.

Measure your pressure. Bad regulator is a very common cause of this. YouTube has plenty of videos showing how.

that won,t help over the net. your stack could be clogged not letting the heat out.

Is your fridge in the slide?
