The other possibility is that one or both of the Quick connect jumpers 2 & 3 have been removed. Page 4.

Re: Solenoid switch does not shut off propane

Hi
I work a lot with solenoid switches , there are some and you can look at it on the switch itself , that are NC normally close ,and other NO normally open ,
that means NC is close all the time , when powered it will open and the same for NO open all the time and when peered it will close .
the one for propane should be NC so when you need the propane you turn on the with and the valve should open
this valve open when the power create a magnetic field , (Electic magnet , and the magnet move a piece a metal inside the valve ,
first make sure there is power at both side of your switch, if yes look at the 2 wires that connect you solenoid , if yes , the solenoid is probable defect , take it off the propane line , and bring it inside ,look at it , maybe duty , there is lots of sulfur in propane , for the smell, (safety in case of leak ) , sometimes it can block the valve
Good luck , Happy wind
