Open your propane tank slowly...opening it too fast will trip the safety valve on the tank

Blow out the gas orifice with high pressure air. Most likely a small blockage.

Thanks to all. I'll grab a can of compressed air and try blowing it out later. Will report back on results.

Definitely running propane to everywhere else in the camper, so hopefully this is the problem.

Another real longshot is the manual valve on the gas solenoid. It's about 1/4" diameter knurled knob with a deep scratch indicating the flow port. See if it is aligned properly.

After you have successfully cleared the orifice, you should be able to blow through it. But remember the hole is only a few thousandths of an inch in diameter.

Well it took awhile but I did try blowing air around everything and it didn't change a thing. Tthe other appliances (stove, water heater) have roaring flames so I know it's not an issue of how much propane is coming out of the tank. There's no crimp in the line at least in the fridge as ours is a hard line, so there's no bend.

I put it away for the season and will maybe give it another look-see in the spring. Who knows, maybe it'll 'fix' itself between now and then. If anything, the fridge runs fine on electricity and seems to hold the coldness well, so if we don't have the fridge running during our travel (which is usually no more than 4-5 hours), maybe we can survive without it.
