I should probably preface by noting that this 1965
Globetrotter is our FIRST RV, so we're kind of neophytes. Also, I did check the forums, but didn't find exactly this problem.
We have the original 1965
Domestic AC/LP refrigerator. It cools fine on AC... within about 24 hours it is freezing cold. However, on LP it simply does not get cool (have left it on as long as 5 days).
Fridge lights and flame does not go out (as noted, we have let it burn as long as 5 days).
Took it to a repair place. They claimed there were no problems with LP, flue, etc. Basically, they said it was old and things shake loose in transit. They said the ignitor (piece of flint on a long stick with a knob to turn to get a spark) had fallen into the orifice and was keeping it from getting warm enough. Removed this assembly completely (it's much easier to light with a match on the end of a dowel) and it still doesn't get cool. The sheet metal box around the burner is not attached all that well (removed it for the photos from the outside hatch... it is usually in place), but it seems to be surrounding everything fire related. Other than that, nothing seems loose or askew.
I am not sure what the flame is SUPPOSED to look like, so I took some photos. I am not 100% sure my pictures uploaded, so here's a link to them: http://share.shutterfly.com/action/welcome?sid=8CaM3LNuxbsxi
The flame pretty much stays like this continuously.
Would appreciate any direction. Sure it's a simple fix, but hate to keep throwing money at at.
