'16 28BHBE fridge issue

Hey, noticed on our last trip out the fridge was not working on gas. Pulled the cover and switched it to gas to watch the ignitor work, but it lights the flame in the wrong location (out by some wires instead of by the ignitor) and eventually shuts off because the thermocoupler thinks there is no gas/flame.

Anybody else experience this before, or know what the issue may be? I could take it to the dealer if need be, but if there is an easy fix i would much rather do it myself than deal with the hassel of the dealer.

Thanks for any info you may have, and happy camping!

Heck i dont know, its very possible. I saw a bunch of ladybugs packed into a corner when i pulled the cover while we were camping, maybe they are in there. Im gonna start looking at it this weekend i think.

Yep. It was a bug nest. I think those mud daubers or whatever they are called. They had that clay nest pcked all the way into the end of the metal tube where the gas gets shoved through. So instead of the gas going through it, it was backing up and coming out a hole at the very beginning ot it, eventually lighting, but not where it should.

EASY FIX! Glad i didnt take it to the dealer!
