LP Heater and Fridge help

I'm trying to light the pilot on my Suburban heater in a 72 tradewind and I got nothing.
I've got gas to my stove, and the valve to the heater is on, but I don't smell any gas around the heater and no flame. Is there something I'm missing or not doing? Or is there a problem with the unit? Has far as the fridge goes I followed the lighting instructions but when I turn the "flint" it just spins with no resistance. It also moves in and out. Is it broken? Is there a way to take it out and look to see if its broken or needs a new flint?

Thanks for the help

Burke

I can't help you with the fridge but here's a link to the Suburban manual that may be of assistance.

Sounds like you need a flint in the fridge. In my Trade Wind, I found that device to be difficult to use. I just stuck one of those long BBQ butane lighters back to the burner and lit it that way.

On the heater, you have to hold the button down while lighting the pilot.

Dealing with the repairs on those appliances may prove to be an exercise in frustration. In the mean time,use an ice chest cooler and a space heater. They never brake.
