Customer Question

Dometic rms 8551. Had a new part and new igniter last September. Haven't used on gas until this weekend. Ignited fine for about 12 hours and now won't ignite!!! We are rallying and have no access to electricity. Wonder if you might have an answer. Many thanks

Not sparking at all
Expert:  Michael replied 3 years ago.
Thank you, ***** ***** the igniter has power, thats about all you can do without taking the unit apart. If you have some basic hand tools and want to work on this I will assist you further. But if not, and you are sure there is power to the spark module then its likely even though the unit is new and hardly used that it is a bad spark module. It happens very often with electronics even brand new units.
Do you have a meter for testing?
