Mine has a switch at the fill, street side, and a switch under kitchen sink. Both have to be on. There is not sw at the tank, but there is a vlave. You have to remove the cover to get to it.

Those two switches are not labelled on or off because one affects the other. Make sure you have tried a couple of combinations to assure they are both on. As Mallie suggested, make sure the manual shutoff valve is on at the tank. It may have been closed by the PO due to a leak, Heaven forbid.

The switches in the fold down drawer in mine show the levels of the various tanks. If you have no lights for propane, maybe it is empty?

Alex,

If you have propane and the manual valve at the tank is open...

Our 97 WB appears to be finicky about the propane process

* Turn on Master Switch in Cabinet above the dash
* Turn on Switch in Fuel Fill (Drivers side)
* Turn on Switch under Sink
* Turn on Switch on CO Detector at floor, wait for it to settle dow

Say a prayer and turn on the stove top burner

You have checked the manual valve, right?

If so, being the redneck farmer/trucker mechanic I am, I would put the switches in the position I think is on. Then, go turn the manual valve OFF at the tank. I would then take the very NEXT fitting apart, after the electric valve mounted on the tank.

I would then, SLOWLY, crack open the manual valve, and see if propane comes out. Make sure the frig is OFF. No flames around.

If no propane, I would turn the manual valve back off, and set the switches in a different position. Then, try it again.

If you NEVER get propane thru, then I would replace the electric valve. You could also do the same by disconnection AT the manual valve. See if there is actually propane in the tank!

As I said, that is what I would do. I am NOT suggesting you do it! But......

Rednecks have more fun!

You mentioned the switch below the sink had a light that was not on. If that is the LPG master switch, it is likely the light is burnt out. I have a number of switches with those kind of lights, and most of them were burnt out. I replaced them easily. But my point is, the switch should still work. Now, if you have no lights when pushing the propane level button, then your tank is probably empty.

But, after turning on the propane detector and waiting for it to quiet down, it will take a while for the propane to make it to the stove burners. You will have to hold the button down until it lights.

Thanks everyone for your help. I still cannot get the Co2 to reset? It only has a test button on it. When I hold it down it does nothing.

I think you are fooling with the carbon monoxide detector. You want the LP detector. It is on the baseboard, probably below the range. It is also black and hard to see. Get down on the floor and look. There is a switch to turn it on.

Bingo!

I need to make a guard for mine. On my 90, it is on the baseboard, just ahead of the frig. BUT, it is right where one chair is for the table. If one pushed the chair out to the wall, it bumps the switch, and turns it OFF! Yikes! Have come in a couple times, and wondered why the frig is getting warm!

Well It appears the LP sensor has been removed. I still have not been able to turn the propane on. Below are some pictures on the Co2 sensor and where the LP sensor was.
