First I would check to be sure your propane tank(s) are not empty and valve is not turned off and that the required gas pressure is being delivered to the unit i.e. pressure line tubing is not kinked or leaking - pressure regulator is operating properly.
Another culprit could be the thermocouple is malfunctioning or is not positioned properly, hence not allowing it to sense the flame.
