It is odd that spiders would get in both burner tubes or pilot tubes at the same time but it is something that could be the problem.

If you remove the tubes you have to look very well because those little buggers are small. Another invader are stink bugs.

I agree but it is one of the possibilities moving up the list IMO.

trigal, were you able to check for spider or stink bug nests in the burner tubes of the fridge and water heater?

Have a good weekend!

I have a newer refrigerator and it quit working 2 weeks ago on propane. I blew out the burner tube with an aerosol computer spray and also around the the sides to get air near the burner and it fired right up. My units air intake is in the floor below so my burner was full of dirt. Turn off the unit before you spray or you will get fire out all the sides. You should be able to hear the burner from the access door when it comes on.

I was on a 7 week trip when I blew it out and it ran for about 2 weeks then quit. When I got home I removed the cabinet side panel and pulled the flue baffle and cleaned it off. The manual for my refrigerator shows the burner open under the flue tube but mine is up in it and attached so I could not remove it or clean it. My son is a trumpet player so I absconded with one of his trumpet flex cleaning brushes which is flexible coiled metal rod with a small bristle brush on each end. There are several sizes of brushes and I took the smallest which is just the right size. I was able to fit it into the burner tube without removing it and brush all the way up to the burner. I then blew it out again and it now works. That brush is now in my took kit!

rvb you may also have removed a nascent spider nest in that process IMO, resulting in better ignition and burn of the propane.

Thanks. You could check for spider nests in the meantime, which moved up a notch in likelihood (IMO) given that it works on electric.

You will have to remove the burner tube to check. Simple blow out will not dislodge them.

Well as it turned out there is a pigtail connection that had a wire come out. Thus no propane. All taken care of under warranty. Thanks for all the suggestions.
