The obvious: do your stove burners burn ok indicating sufficient propane?

Is the fan air coming out if the furnace ducts or the AC ducts?

There are several furnace documents in our Library (link in the green bar in the top part of the screen). You might start with this one: Suburban Furnace Troubleshooting Guide.

There's also a "how it works" document.

I found a golf ball sized hornets nest at the rear of the intake tube,i removed it and the furnace fired and ran for 30 seconds then shut off, due to the way that CC installed the unit BEHIND the sidewall under the fridge the only access is from the garbage door ion the right of the unit, aside from removing the whole fridge cabinet I can't see how I can remove the unit and get to the squirrel cage for further inspection, what the hell were CC thinking by not having the front of the heater where ALL the service is done mounted through the wall??
