That's what I thought, Flirty. Thanks for the photo to confirm it though.
If you are sure there is plenty of heat with the inlet blocked (there is a possibility that the propane valve itself is not opening fully), I would be looking at the main board.

I am not a repair dude, I try to figure out the most likely fault; then pull the LRU (Line Replaceable Unit); and replace it.
See if that fixed the problem.

A certified technicial would figure it out immediately and fix it. It would most likely cost more if you both guessed right, but would be a lot less if you guessed wrong. (Don't Ask Me How I Know - DAMHIK)

Yes , I think I've gone as far as I feel safe going with this. After all I'l be sleeping with this thing running. I think I'm going to bring it to a certified shop and let them do it rite. Thanks for all the help. this has just goten a little to critical for me to mess with.

There is an aviation story about this very topic.

The Air Force spends several hundred thousand dollars to train pilots how to fly in instrument conditions. The reason they do that is NOT so they CAN fly when the weather's bad, but to know WHEN NOT to fly when the weather's bad.

Clint Eastwood said it pretty good too.

"A man has GOT to know his limitations."

Thanks for the pics. That cleared it up and there are several things that could cause the issue you're seeing. Low gas pressure is one, bad gas valve is another, and a few more. At this point I think you're wise to call in a pro. They'll have the knowledge and tools to figure it out.

OK Can close this down now . Brought it to the dealer. He flipped the switch and it works. He says nothing wrong with it. Everthing in normal operating range. His best guess maybe when I put the leaf blower to it , that clear it out.
