Is the new solenoid the same as the old one. That is, is it a similar high or low pressure type. Each version has to be on the correct side of the regulator. GordMay can perhaps steer you to a recent thread where this was discussed in great detail by the very knowledgable crew in this fleet.

Same exact model.

I have a feeling it isn't getting power, though. Left it on for a while yesterday and felt cold to the touch.

On the other hand, the fridge which isn't connected to the solenoid won't light either.

It may be time to start taking things apart and testing them individually.

It sounds like you have pressure to the regulator when you open the tank valve, so you are OK to that point. Now remove the solenoid, and using reasonable precautions, turn on the tank valve for a second and see if you hear hissing/smell gas. If not, bad regulator.

Wait for gas to clearn then turn on the solenoid controls and see if you can blow through it. If not, check the voltage at the coil--12V bad solenoid, 0V, bad wiring/controller.
