First Welcome. You need to purge the air from your lines. Check your tank(s) are on then turn on one of your stove burners and light it. Then switch the fridge off and on again to cycle. The fridge has a fault that will shut down once it tries and fails some many times as a safety measure. After long storage, tank shut offs or non use this can occur. If you still have a problem then take it into the dealer for warranty.

When we first used our fridge on propane, ours didn't light either. But, it wasn't the actual gas line. My hubby took the outside cover off and had to manually turn this tiny valve and it worked after that.
