    So...I made a mistake and threw out the carry out stove for my PUP since I use a coleman stove in my chuck box. I went to light the pilot of my three-way fridge and couldn't get it to light. After doing some research, I learned that you should use the stove (which I no longer have) to bleed the lines. Any ideas on what I should do??

    can't recommend what others have said they do with some sort of stick to keep the pilot valve open for long period of time.

    seems a better choice - trick the valve (thermocouple) with a long lighter then turn the main burner valve open!!!!

    I do that all the time on my water heater but it's not likely to work on a fridge. That's not a pilot your trying to light, it's the main burner. You'll just have to bleed it out. Buy a cheap 1 burner stove you can hook up to the existing stove connection.
