Caravel 3 burner stove top will not light

We have a 2020 Caravel 20FB and the stove top will not light. Both propane tanks are full and turned on. Any suggestions?

Did it ever work?

Does any other gas appliance work, just test fire them.

If nothing works try turning off all tank valves. Then run stove burner until all gas flow stops. Use gas match to burn off any residual gas at burner.

Wait a few minutes then very SLOWLY turn on tank and then try to light burner.

Possible excess flow detected and it locked out. Check your owners manual about lock out.

As an added step after the tanks are off, bleed the pressure off the pigtail hose by removing them from the tank and then reattach.

The switch over device has a high pressure/flow leak shutoff that may have activated. this procedure resets it.
