Some of these have been mentioned. Does the oven light? Does the refer operate on propane? Is there propane in the tank(s)? Does the 'empty' indicator show red? If so, flip to the second tank and then does the indicator show green? Is the second tank turned on? Has the OPD been activated?

Thanks for all the advice. All other propane appliances work fine. I suspect a good cleaning of the grill is in order. I'll clean it when we get home tomorrow and check it out more thoroughly. I've got a campfire to tend to!

Mine has a shut off at the quick disconnect on the unit. Did you shut the off and forgot?

Spiders are attracted to the chemical added to propane to make it smell. Try using compressed air to reverse blow out the grill parts.

Due to the sudden onset of the malfunction, this has my vote. I'm betting the hose was pushed far enough onto the nipple to hold, but not far enough to open the check valve.
