Gas only Heater, Fridge not staying on

I think I know the answer but am spooked about gas. Where is the on/off valve on propane tank? Fridge comes on and sparks but does not light after turning in 4 times to purge air from lines. The furnace is gas only. It comes on and fan works for a few minutes, then blower goes off and can hear fan in bathroom register but no heat from any register. Had tank filled in March. Not used since. Checking to see if stove will light. Any help appreciated.

The attendant that filled the tank , may have left the service valve off , It's the law they have to turn it off while filling.
Open the tank access door , the service valve knob , looks like a house water tap , open it slowly , because there is a safety valve in the tank for excess flow .
With the lines drained it's easy to trigger the excess flow valve ; so when opening the valve ,if you hear a thunk , that's the excess flow valve closing and you'll have to close the valve and start over.
Back pressure in the propane lines keeps the excess flow valve open , empty lines= no back pressure.

Thank you. With your help and description of gas valve, we found it. It was off. We turned it on and all gas appliances work as they should.
