'64 Dometic working on propane-Electric is iffy??
I recently had my '64 Dometic serviced at the local Amish propane appliance shop. They cleaned up the propane parts- orifice and other parts- and it fires well and cools, they say, to 30 degrees. I know the flint is toast...he says it is obsolete. Can a new flint unit be installed, or will I be relegated to the outside to light the fridge every time?
He did not test the electric workings of the refrigerator. He says there is a "glow plug" in the electric circuit kind of like a diesel motor would have. Can this go bad? Can it be replaced? I do want to level the refrigerator up and try it on electric.
I am thrilled it works on gas, but hope to get the electric reliable as well so that I can use the power at the campground when it is available.
Any input is welcomed. Thanks! Ben
