    Light a stove eye for a few minutes to purge the air from the gas lines.

    The propane furnace has a safety air vane switch associated with the Furnace blower. If the air vane (i.e. Blower not working) is not working properly then it will keep the furnace from getting propane...

    Hopefully just purging the propane lines by burning your stovetop burners will fix you up...

    Jump the thermostat, then you can rule that out.

    If the sail switch has gone bad, it will think it’s not moving enough air to light the furnace.
