Norcold pilot light wont stay lit

Refrigerator is Norcold model N611
Heater element is model N61X

Propane tank is full and open.
Burner assembly is clean.

Pilot will start and stay on for about 30 seconds. While on the flame looks good. At the 30 second mark I can hear a popping noise coming from the propane regulator (not sure of its real name but it's the part that restricts propane flow) before the flame goes out.

Any help in diagnosing this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

That's what I thought, but when I looked at the schematics I did not see one and there was not one listed on the parts list.

Only way it doesn't have a thermocouple is if it's dsi.
And if it's dsi then there's no pilot light either.

Not sure if this is related but new model Norcold's will not work at high elevations on propane have to use electric.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.
