The regulator covered with frost is the problem. It freezes the gas and the gas line up. But, usually this only occurs when it has been exposed to subfreezing (in the teens) temperature for a long period of time. The quick fix, is to soak a bath towel in hot water, ring it out and quickly wrap it around the regulator. Once it thaws, the gas will start flowing again and you can light the burner. Generally, once it's flowing and being used, it won't freeze up again, right a way. Most propane companies add ethanol to the propane in the winter, to help keep it from freezing in the lines and the regulator.
Hope this helped answer you question and provided, at least a quick fix solution.
This is the best that I could find. I believe that items like this are imported from China with no support stock of spare parts. In the old days, one could locate the manufacturer in the US and buy any individual part he wanted.
If the pilot will not light at all, then first check to make sure your propane cylinder is not empty. Second disconnect the tank and reconnect, but very slowly turn the tank valve back on and try relighting it again. Third, if the above two do not solve it, then get a can of compressed air (like you use to clean computer keyboards) and blow out the dirt/spiderweb from the pilot orifice, where the pilot flame normally lights. It may just be plugged/dirty. Douglas
