I'm posting "the end" not to show how dumb I am but to maybe save some other poor soul in the future. My reefer is sooooooo cold at this point I can't believe it. Ran all the tests that you folks suggested to diagnose the problem. As stated earlier it turned out to be a bad fuel selector knob. Went back out last night and fiddled some more. Knob is fine now. I wound up pulling the metal "collar" off and really pushed
the knob. It now is properly seated and there is a definate detent to each position. For want of a nail the shoe was lost.................
