The fridge in my classic (Dometic 2807) has been problematic for the past several months. No light, no relight, endless check light.
This afternoon I removed the board and reignitor module.
I could not believe what I found! There were no fewer than 5 cold solder joints on the board, and darned near every crimp on spade connector was loose or not crimped!
I stripped, crimped, cleaned, and deoxited everything.....
Bam.... everything now works. I can switch from AC to gas and back with no check light! What a bummer I didn't spend the time before now!
If you are having issues, I strongly suggest the time spent with your soldering iron and a dozen new connectors.
Wahoo, consistently chilled libations without fear....

Sometimes it is the simple things. Congrats on tracking down the issue. I recently had a moment of angst when the coupler would not drop on the hitch ball, despite being lined up perfectly. Oh yea, need to raise the stabilizer jacks.

Worked myself into a wtf lather!

Next day update...
All still good and cold!

This afternoons project is to swap the leds to blue and add an audible "check" alarm.

Cold is good

The reefer burner, depending on the amount of use, should be cleaned every few years, especially the orifice.

Yup, I use an ultrasonic tank to clean the venturi. It makes a difference. A little cleaning goes a long way. I believe the mercaptain oil goofs things up if not dissolved every then and again.
