    My 2003 Electrolux RM 6401L fridge fires up on gas okay but the igniter keeps sparking. I cleaned out the burner and there's a good blue flame. I also positioned the thermocouple better in the flame.

    Are you sure the flame lights ok and stays lit when you release the button

    I think it's the igniter controller. Does anyone know how to access it? I can't see it from the vents.

    It's screwed to the back and behind a cover if I remember correctly, I think you'll need to remove the fridge.
    Fiddly if it's like mine, but doable. Remove the door, Isolate electric and gas then there are four screws behind covers inside fridge at the front. Probably also screws accessible from rear vent
