If you have a hand held bottled type, propane torch, you could carefully try that. However, never ever use any type of liquid starter, like charcoal lighter fluid, kerosene, etc. All you want to do, is get a cup or so of pellets started burning hotly and let the auger take over feeding the fire from there.
Usually if it's new, there will be some burn off. Make sure propane detector and smoke alarm, as well as carbon monoxide detector, if you have one, are working. Smell and any smoke should burn off after running a while, if not have it checked to be sure. I'd recommend running it with windows open and roof vents open and any exhaust fans at stove, and roof vents turned on for a while, then shut it off, let trailer air out good, then close windows etc, and see if it's better.
First check and clean the filters, and the evaporator coil. (thats the "inside" coil that has the indoor air sucked through it, cooling it and then pushing it out the vents.
If the filter is clogged or the coils are dirty, it will not cool properly and potentially freeze up.
Also check the condensor (outdoor) coil, if it is dirty/clogged, it will run hot and not cool properly.
If all coils and filters are clean, and the fan motors are running and in good condition and it is still not cooling then you are likely low on refridgerant. (handling/purchasing refridgerant other than R134A requres a CFC certification by law)
when you laid the fridge on its side oil got on the head of the compressor and into the refrigeration system. the compressor is a vapour pump if you started it with oil still on the head of the compressor it most likely destroyed the compressors reed valves and piston.
Pressure in your tank drops with cold; you may need to tent it and provide a moderate heat source to keep up the pressure. Just like tire pressure- drops when cold. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.
