no light from propane detector

My propane furnace, stove, et al were all working when we left for a few days.
Came back and the propane leak detector light was off, furnace works, but no hot air, stove won't ingnite. Fuse at detector is good, breaker panel fuses are good. The tank was topped off before we left and used it before we left.
I closed the propane tank valve and opened it slowly a couple of times.
no results.
Help in Hemet,Ca

Sounds like a low battery to me. If you're plugged into shore power, your converter may be bad. Read your battery voltage with a meter to see where you are.

The detector controls a solenoid safety valve. Fuse may be inline to the battery in lieu in panel. Must apply 12vdc to the solonoid before gas will be available. Valve is located on your fixed propane tank right at the tank outlet.

Check the plumbing to all the appliances and see if there is a solinoid in the line. If there is it is proably in the common piping before the pipe splits to all the appliances.
If found try running 12v direct to it and see if it opens, if it does bad detector, if it dosent bad solinoid most likely. Either replace it or remove it your call.
