How much flame should there be when running on gas?

I do not have model but should there be a roaring flame or just a little flame?

It's the fridge. And it's just a little flame, not really any larger than a pilot light on other appliances.

You won't hear anything like the flame thrower in your hot water heater. After the ticking stops on ours (to start), I can barely hear anything when I'm outside looking directly at the back of the refrigerator. Inside, you can't hear anything.

On my 73 when the refrigerator is running on gas I am able to hear the slight "popping"
sound of gas ....It is a very low level noise, but it certainly can be heard!

When we light ours to propane mode, it will 'PHOOM!' a few times and then a verticle blue flame appears (should only burn in blue. If yellow the feed of propane is too rich and must be adjusted. (good luck with that). The fridge will run on propane for almost a month (at least ours does on one tank full.

Sounds about right to me, just a little larger than the average pilot light. As mentioned above, the flame should be a pretty blue with maybe a small touch of yellow at the very top edge of the flame.

Does the refer get good and cold while on propane?

Ok model number is Dometic RM 2652 it is rebuilt fridge
1) worked great first two months installed on electric
2) left plugged in all winter
3) around april uncovered trail opened frig noticed not cold
4) FYI gas not hooked up because replacing bad gas line frig had one bad line.
5) frig was working both freezer and ref before winter
6) hooked up gas switched to auto a click and no light I disconnected gas flow solenoid tapped it a few times connected it and it lit
7) left on over night freezer very cold ref room temp

So replacing heating element should not be issue but why do it if frig is toast any idea on which was to go now?
