What is the make and model of the fridge? And how long has it been since you had the LP working pressure checked at the tank regulator? Low LP pressure can result in poor or no pilot flame performance. It can be several other things as well. Get back to me with this information and I can assist you further here. All follow ups are included in our one time fee. No time limit.
