No propane

I'm leaving for a 4 day trip. Tried to ignite stovetop to get fuel going no luck. Both tanks have fuel. Was hoping to run fridge on propane on the way. Switch always shows green but still no fuel. Shows green on off position also. I have used propane for fridge before but can't figure what went bad. Any ideas?

The safety valves on those tanks can shut off if the ACME nut is not secured just right. Shut the valves on both thanks and make sure all the appliances are turned off. Remove both Acme nuts, wait a minute and reattach. Then open a tank to see if you have pressure.

Second possibility is the regulator leak detection safety cut off. How to reset the regulator.
