Thanks to all for the direction(s). Repairing that (eaten down to the nub) ground wire did allow the solenoid to open. Got the fridge lit manually. Working today on getting it to light automatically. ISSUE: Something opaque dripped down from the "flue" onto the burner yesterday after it got good and hot. I'm assuming it was bee's wax. Will explore that today. AND ... I will be checking on recalls along with contacting Atwood to see if they've got that sheet metal part. What's there did clean up well with a small wire brush.
Thank you, again.

See here for the info on the Dometic fridge recall. This will tell you if your model and serial number is in the recall https://www.dometic.com/en-us/outdoor/lp/refrigerator-recall

I know the other poster said Atwood, and now you did too. Atwood Mobil who made a lot of really good products, water heaters, stoves/ranges, power jacks etc. did not make the fridge shown on your picture, Dometic did. And sadly, Atwood sold out a while ago to Dometic.

Hope this helps
