Automatic ignition constantly working even when fridge is lit. Anyone else had this problem and if so what is the cure?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Oops silly me. The fridge is a Electrolux 6401 (L).

Most likely needs a service, could be a number of things but soot and dirt in the burner causing the flame to not hit the flame recognition electrode is the most likely.

Thanks. We are currently in Portugal and would like to try to rectify this ourselves but as there is no lower vent does this mean fridge removal?

If fridge is lit and ignition is still running then likely that there is a faulty thermocouple. It is a long one in the 6401' nearly 2 and a half feet long.

In my experience it is far more likely to be dirt in the burner, its not impossible that the thermocouple could be faulty but as that operates to the gas valve rather than the ignition circuit its not terribly likely to be the culprit in this instance. Thermocouples do fail but it is actually quite rare.

If is all electronic like the 7000 & 8000 fridges you will see 2 similar looking probes both with wires going to them, one is the igniter the other is the flame sensor, if the sensor is out of position, disconnected or wire broken, the igniter will keep trying to light the gas.
