If it is the original fridge, no. If it has been replaced with a fridge that has lit buttons across the top, or no pilot(electric ignition), then yes.
Easy way to answer the question is with a question. Do you have to light a pilot light?
The 12 volt
answer is the opposite of the answer to the above question.
Do you have 2 knobs and a button at the base of the refer inside the door?
Same rule applies, yes means you do not need 12 volts to run.
