Hi Chris, Larry here. I have to start from the beginning, so have patience. Do you have the LP bottles full and on? Does your stove lite? Do you hear the gas valve on the fridge "clicking" when it tries to start? Let's start with these first.

yes bottles are ok the stove and heater are fine and also gas hw heater> you do hear the gas solenoid open for pilot and the clicking I hear after is the ingniter not stopping.

Hi Chris, you have me confused. This unit is electronic ignition and should not have a pilot light. By what you have told me so far sounds like a defective gas valve solenoid. It is trying to open but the pintle is stuck. Please take the time to rate and thanks for the question.
