This is a tough one. Found two things on the web that might help. RVmobile had a similar problem. Dometic Service Manuel. Maybe you can find an answer with those links. Good luck!

Did you ever find out how to fix the constant sparking? We are having the same problem with our Dometic RM2600. It will light properly then after a few minutes the ignitor will start sparking even though the flame is lit.

The flame grounds out the spark. If you are have sparking while the flame is lite check and watch the spark. If it is traveling to the burner outside the flame, bypassing the flame, turn the ref. off and try moving the spark electrode so it will spark go through the flame area once the flame is lite.

wow, surprising to see activity here after so long. Actually, no, the problem has not been solved. I still have the same issue. I have tried moving the position of the igniter electrode closer & farther from the flame area...no luck. Still spark, spark, spark even with the flame going. At this point I have given up. There's an RV service / dealer (not Airstream, but doesn't matter when it comes to the fridge) about 20 min. away. I talked to them about it and they said they could work on it. I just need to stop camping long enough + find the time to make an appt. and haul the AS there.

dometic rm2600

It seems to be a rare problem. I found your post after a lot of searching. Ours has worked well on gas today, but still did the sparking thing occasionaly, when there was no breeze at all. It is very quirky in performance, even on 120...

Just in case anyone is still subscribed to this thread...

I got the problem fixed, sorta. Due to some planned boondocking in the near future, we wanted the gas function of the fridge to work, so I took it to the local RV dealer / service provider. He diagnosed the issue as a bad igniter card but due to the age of the fridge + where the card is located (required fridge to be completely removed to access the card at the bottom, FRONT) he said that IF the card was available, I was looking at min $200. He came up with an alternative after talking to Dometic, though. I don't understand it all, but once the fridge is fired on gas, it is possible to disconnect the 12V supply and it will continue running so long as the flame doesn't blow out. Therefore, the serviceman installed a little toggle switch on the side of the cabinets in the kitchen where I can manually turn off the igniter. So far, it works great. Once it's lit and running, I turn of the toggle.
