Got here late...I am assuming this is for an RV. There are probably electric furnaces on some of the newer ones, however, an electric furnace would draw more power than most parks could handle, so the is answer is it probably needs to have propane. On your panel, or near your furnace, you will see a switch to tell the furnace to use propane or electric...if your furnace is capable of running on electricity.
These models require electrical power to run the blower fan.
When you connect the electrical cord, the fan should turn on, then you should be able to start / ignite the propane. if the fan does not turn on when you connect the power cord, you will not be able to ignite the propane.
Your fridge should have a switch for propane/electric/automatic. This is usually located above the fridge door & just below the freezer door. When on propane the gas will feed directly to the fridge there us no need to light it! However the propane needs to feed from the large propane tank usually mounted on the tongue of the trailer to the fridge....this takes some time . We usually light our drove first then wait a few minutes & then turn on the fridge. Please know that it takes a few hours 10-12 fir the fridge to cool down to acceptable temps. Now if u do all the above u may have a blockage (mud dauber) in the propane line - which u can usually access thru the fridge access panel on the outside of your trailer. Bees seem to be drawn to the Oder if propane. Make sure prolate tank is shut off! Take a small brush & clean the inside of the propane line & then start from the beginning.
When the switch is set to electric, you should notice the fridge getting colder in a few hours. Again 10-12 hrs before it us acceptable to place food in it.
When the switch is in the auto mode it will automatically switch from electric to propane when you lose electricity for any reason & back to electric is you run out of propane - or shut it off.
Oh one last thing you must have your battery on in order for the fridge to work!
you need to find the propane lines and where ever you have a joint you need to put "snoop" on it. which is basicly soap and water sorry my spelling sucks. anyway you do this with the propane on and whereever you have bubbles you have troubles. you can even check your lines with it. Now yoiur electrical woes can be fixed by tracing your wiring and finding out where you have a short this is when two wires are either touching eachother both of these problems take time and they take some experience. If you mess this up you could blow yourself up. Let me know what you are going to do. I'm worried for you
