starts the flame and after 3 seconds or so it stops. cycles 3 times and got a single blinking light. i steel wooled the flame sensor. didn't fix. just converted from nat gas to propane.. changed orifices and spring in valve. adjusted per directions. i don't have a gauge to measure pressures. i also don't know what the flame should look like. any help please.

Also need to clock the appliance to determine input.

Edit: just saw that you went from NG to propane. Clocking may not be possible.
