When you select or want to use it on propane you should hear the electrode sparking and a single click from the gas solenoid, if you can hear the gas solenoid click but not the electrode spark then it is suspect, if you do not get a click from the gas solenoid AND the electrode is not sparking the circuit board is suspect. IF you can get me the model number of the Norcold I should be able to get you a service manual which may narrow this down for you.

Without the model number it is hard for me to give you detailed info but as a general rule if the gas solenoid is opening up and the electrode is not sparking then the electrode is suspect, if the gas solenoid and electrode are not working then the board is suspect.

You can always come back and let me know the model number anytime you like, I am around daily and response when I can.
