no gas to fridge burner

I have a 2510 fridge that works on electric but not propane. Tried blowing the burner...did not work. I am a third time owner and have owned a year...without it working. Question, is there a turn off gas valve near the burner? Is there a pilot light? It appears to have no gas flow. What am I missing?

Could be the igniter is bad. Just had mine replaced, along with a service. I'd book it in to a RV service centre.

Maybe this will help? There is a troubleshooting section and also page 12 shows the propane shutoff valve that is integral to the refrigerator plumbing. ETI does not install an external propane shutoff valve to my knowledge.

I have a similar problem with my fridge. I took it to a Dometic repair shop and was told the problem was the motherboard but that Dometic doesn't sell just the motherboard and I'd need to buy a whole new fridge $1400. I should probably get another opinion but this particular shop is know for its honesty. This is only an issue when I boondock but that's half the time. I have a week long trip coming up and it would be nice to have a fridge so I'm considering buying a small generator but I hate the noise, and besides I only need it for the fridge so it seems like such a hassle and waste. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

I'd get a second opinion or call Dometic direct first.
When discussing these things, it is really helpful if one makes note of the model number.
