Fridge wont reignite

I have a dometic propane fridge that won't light. I can light it manually with a lighter by going to the outside panel behind the fridge and putting flame to the burner. The Fridge then runs fine and cools nice however when it cycles and needs to relight the burner it does not. I am suspecting the igniter. Any thoughts?

Hmm, try to remove the shield from around the burner orifice (where the flame would be) and clean the area well. It takes very little rust, dust or insect nest to disrupt either the igniter spark or the LP/air mix and either will prevent ignition.

Have done all that. There is no spark from the electrode that sits over the burner. Still suspecting the reigniter.

If the compressor isn't kicking on when the fridge is warm you can look into the startup/run capacitor on the compressor motor and/or the relay/overload for the compressor motor. Next likely item might be the condenser fan.

It did turn out to be the reigniter, once that was replaced it started working just fine. Now I'm chasing a battery that goes dead with in hours of being charged even though nothing is on. Learning as I go. Thanks for the input.
