    Obvious first, has the isolator been turned off?
    Is it AES or manual?

    So, if there was no gas, the ignition would try to spark.

    So, is it on 240v/12v or is it AES?

    Clean out the gas jet assembly. Usually accessible through the bottom fridge vent. 2923876508.jpg .
    DO NOT poke out the little brass jet set in the body - they are over £30! - Blow it clear.

    Ours clicks even if the gas is switched off at the cut off switch,so cleaning the jets possibly wont be the solution.whenever I,ve had a problem like this its been electrical,once the fuse on the ebl the other bad connections on the multi block just inside the bottom vent.Not an expert by any means just my experience.

    Sounds fuse like or electrical if the igniters not clicking away Bill. What make and model fridge is it? Remember ours wasn't working in Spain and I've had it to bits and sorted out. Be there now second week of October so between us we'll f**k it or fix it ;).

    If you can't here the igniter then I would check 12v fuse for the fridge first.
