Help! Can't get fridge started

Hi all,

We are brand new TT owners. We have a 2016 Apex BHS300 we got less than a month ago and We leave out of town for the weekend tomorrow for its second outing but can't get the refrigerator to light. We have a Dometic fridge and we can hear it clicking going through its cycle and then nothing.
We ran the stove and that's working fine. We've attempted this for over 30 minutes and it will not light. We went camping just over a week ago and it worked.

What else can we try?

It's possible there's that much air in the line.
It may have never been bled out.

Even if we used it just over a week ago?

Help! Can't get fridge started

Sometimes if I turn my propane off at the tanks, the fridge takes a while to start when I turn it back on (30-min seems excessive). I would try turning on your stove and let it burn for a couple minutes, then turn on the fridge while they are still burning.

You never mentioned that, which would have helped.

It's possible that a spider made a Web in the burner.
Can you blow it out with compressed air

Everything is lighting. We have turned the stove on and let it run multiple times. The ignition is sparking but does not light.

Propane valve may be bad or there's no power to it.

What is the fridge make and model?

Mostly. Husband is leveling it now to see if that's the problem. 😳 that would be embarrassing.

Would the check light come on after it cycles with no power? I don't know the model off the top of my head. Will get that if this doesn't work.
