We have a temp star furnace and our propane tank ran out so

Customer Question

We have a temp star furnace and our propane tank ran out so after finally getting it filled up, our furnace will not come on. We have tried turning power off to it and then restarting it without any luck at all. Any other ideas?
JA: Did you check the furnace's filters?
Customer: Yes, replaced that as well.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If we could but would be willing to have someone fix it if need be. Just wondering if there is a simple try first.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: No

  1. check that the shut off valve on the propane tank is open, same as a bbq tank

It is open, propane guy was out and lit all of the pilot lights but the heater will not kick on now. It worked yesterday and the stove and gas fireplace works. The heater will not kick on.
