NORCOLD 3163 in my VW Camper won't light

I have a NORCOLD 3163 in my VW Camper. It works great on 12V and 120, but will not light on propane.

I have cleaned the stack and around ignitor (was clean to start) I can hear the ignitor clicking.

I started to disconnect propane lines to see where I had gas. What I found was when the temperature dial is on "start" there is no propane going down the tube to the ignitor, even with the ignitor switch pushed in . However when I put temperature dial between 1-5 I have propane exiting (I can feel it coming out the disconnected line)

Is this a problem in the temperature dial?????

EDIT
I have also checked the ignitor and it is sparking when the switch is set to "start" so I would say it is obviously a blockage or a cut off of propane somewhere after manual shut off and the temperature dial. DOes this dial somehow stop propane?

Thanks
