My fridge doesn't work when ever I switch it to propane. Would it be the same fix?

Probably just spiders nest in the little oriface the propane comes out.

I'm no expert on this stuff, nor know the names of any of the parts, but I was able last fall, in the dark while camping, pop the out side cover off that shows where all the gas comes in to work the fridge. I was able to take some simple stuff apart and get the blockage cleared and when i put it back together i was able to see things light up.

Same thing happened with the furnace the fall before. Something had built a nest in the little hole where the propane comes out. That was a bit of a pain as i had to pull the furnace out of the wall to get to it.

Now, instead of going a year between fireups, i go out every 6 weeks or so and get the furnace and fridge fired up on propane to kill spiders and such

Thanks! I will try that. Sounds pretty easy.

Did not get a chance to disassemble the unit today to clean is bcs 45 min before i was to head to camp for chores and a siesta I filled my spring bear tag!

Perhaps tomorrow!

I did, just for kicks, try to fire it up and amazingly it fired and stayed lite!  So that was wierd.

Maybe because you needed a hot shower?    :dunno:   Better karma?    :chuckle:
