Refrigerator problem

I have a 19BH and on our last trip out the refrigerator wouldl not operate on gas. You can hear the ignitor firing and lighting but once the ignitor quits the flame goes out. The bottles are full. Any ideas?

1. Air in the line. Light the stove burner to insure most of the air is purged.
2. Spider has built a web around the gas orifice.
3. Defective control board.

Light all the burners on the stove for about 5 mins. then try it. Make sure that you manage the heat it creates. Then try it. It is air in the lines.

Wasp nests are common in the exhaust of the fridge/water heater/furnace......

Mine is doing exact same thing. It was not air in my lines so I ordered a new electrode/spark sensor which is what acts like a thermocouple on mine. I will get it installed and let you know if it fixes mine this weekend

Don't know if you had any luck but mine is still doing exact same. I've tried every suggestion including replacing the electric thermocouple. Guess its maybe the main box. Looks like a trip to the dealer for me. Hope you have better luck!

Same for me. I replaced the thermocouple and it's still doing the same thing. I'll be buying a control box next.
