Fridge problems

So I use my fridge on propane all the time and recently starting giving some trouble. Last week when I went to turn on the fridge it didnt fire but when I tried it a few hours it fired up with no problem and worked liked it should have. But then today I went to turn on the fridge it won't fire and yes the propane is full. Any suggestions?

Get the manual and follow troubleshooting process.

Could be dirty orifice or burner.

Ours drove us nuts on a trip tgen read manual at home and cleaned burner tube and fixed in 5 minutes.

Doesn't even sound like it's trying to ignite not sure if I have a manual will look though. Maybe I can find something online if I don't have a manual.

Why do you keep turning it off and on? Are you trouble shooting something? Try leaving it on a few days and see what happens.
