When the absorption refrigerator is in the gas mode is the flame always lit or does it go on and off as needed.

Flame stays on I believe. May be wrong though.

No, It does not always stay on. DSI is only on while cooling on propane. A pilot light refer, the pilot stays lit.
Make and model of refer involved would be beneficial!

Barney...I think with the DSI fridges, there is no longer any flame (pilot), until needed, to spark, light, heat, and shut down. The earlier model fridges used a standing pilot.

Barney: you were what? The word "wrong" is not in a man's vocabulary!
Correct term is "not right"!

Fridge thermostat controls the heating cycles be it AC Element or the GAS Flame

Older models (smaller cabinet/compact) used a gas control that would regulator size of flame based on temp dial setting
Closer to MAX...flame would stay ON


Is it time for your medication or mine?

Hi gentlemen. I'm Dave, and I'm always wrong too. It's been 33 years since I was not wrong.

("Hi Dave")

For your fridge...

You should hear the "snick-snick-snick-snick whoosh" when the pilot lights and the fridge starts. It will turn off on its own when it hits the configured temp, and then snick-snick-snick-snick whoosh when it cycles back on again.

(...unless I'm wrong)

Old fridges, the flame got bigger and smaller.
Modern DSI fridge, the flame comes and goes.
