My Trillium 4500 has a 3 way frig. and a furnace..I tried to light them but the pilot lights on both are very weak..they will bearly light I was wondering if there was a way to turn them up any....The one on the Furnace will only flicker on and off I kept a lighter on it long enough to light the furnace and it seams to work fine the pilot light just wont stay lit..The one on frig. lights but its a very very very small blue flame that just goes out with the smallest of a breeze so I can't tell if it works on gas or not....Thanks Randy

Randy, a quick thought.... Are your propane tanks NEW(er) style? These new style tanks tend to not function properly if the operating valve(s) is/are opened too quickly. A common indication (with our BBQ anyway) that the valve was opened too quickly is a VERY low flame even on high setting. Only solution seems to be to disconnect the tank(s) from their hoses and mounting positions, and slowly INVERT them for a few seconds and then re-position them in their places, reconnect hoses and then be VERY careful to open the valve VERY slowly (after a soap test, that is....).

Could be the problem because it does have the new style tank..I've got a old style tank that I will swap out tomorrow and see if that fixes the problem thanks again for the help..
