    Could be a bad temp probe but that indication could also mean a bad data cable. Try a different one. Yellow blinking with Green means a low battery. By itself, I don't know.

    Looked closer at the instructions. 1 micro amp in standby mode and max of 4 - 6 amps. That won't play for kero start and pretty close or over for propane start.
