Refrigerator question

When the refrigerator has not been used for a long time there can be air trapped in the supply lines. To get rid of this air you can turn refrigerator off and on with the off on button if the flame is not lit within 45 seconds you're supposed to turn the refrigerator off and back on again. How do we know if the flame is not lit?
If we have a greenlight on the display running on electric only is the display ever red if lame not lit ?

I don't know what Airstream or fridge you have so I'll tell you how mine works. If you are connected to AC, and the fridge is set to automatic, it will not try to light the flame, it just runs from AC. If I want to check the propane option I have to set it to "gas" with the pushbutton. It will then try to light. After a few minutes, the "check" light will come on if it doesn't light successfully. I then turn it off an back on again. The process is speeded up if I make sure that the main line is free of air by lighting the stove burners first. The fridge uses so little propane that it could take several tries, more if you don't light the stove burners first.

Hi

If you now have an AS, it probably would help if you updated your info. That would eliminate a bit of confusion from people coming up with info that does not apply to your situation.
