I recently bought a house with a marco natural gas fireplace. The unit will lite but after about 30 min will shut down and you can smell gas. Where can I pick up a manual and what could cause this problem? thanks

    I have the same problem! A friend says that it should shut off when it gets hot. There's a sensor that will turn the fireplace on and off.

    Does anyone know if this is accurate?

    My fireplace runs for 10-30 minutes then shuts off by itself.



    The pilot goes out as well.



    I have to re-light the pilot and start the fireplace again, and then the same thing happens.

This an easy fix. What you must do is remove the dust from the pilot safety. I use rust buster from ace hardware to gently flush the hole. If ther is no hole just shoot a tiny drop or 2 into the pilot burner where the flame comes out. Blow it out (I use a piece of tubing). The problem is the dust drops the pilot flame to a point where it won't heat the thermocouple hot enough to jold the magnet and after 30 minutes she quits. THIS is a picture of where to clean the ODS pilots in your rig.

Yes, i can seem to get an answer on weather my Marco fireplace model # 7927740 can burn gas or wood. I was told it could do both?


The best answer would be to contact Marco or their distributer directly. I have never seen a fireplace that would burn both. I have seen dual-fuel central heating furnaces.

I would not attempt burning wood without input from Marco.

I have a Model 792864B. Before you attempt to light the pilot light - make sure that any wall control switch or remote control for the fireplace is in the off position. Locate the gas supply line. There should be a gas supply valve to turn on the gas supply. The valve is usually painted a different color than the supply line like blue, green or yellow. Open the valve by pivoting the handle to be parallel to the gas line, usually counter-clockwise. When it is closed it is at a 90 degree angle from the supply line. Locate the pilot light assembly - this is the pilot light. There should also be a red or black ignitor button and a black or green valve control knob with the words "on" "off" and "pilot" on it. It may be located inside a black box, mine is marked heatolator, that has a lift off top. Lift off the top of the box. Push in the valve control knob and turn it until the word "pilot" is in line with the arrow (my arrow is red) or indicator line. While pressing and holding in the valve control knob - it presses in about 1/4", press the red or black ignitor button repeatedly (once per second) until the pilot ignites. Once the pilot is lit, continue to hold the valve knob in for about 30 seconds and then slowly release. The pilot should remain lit. If it remains lit, press in and turn the valve control knob to the "on" position. The on/off wall or remote control switch should now light your fireplace. If the pilot doesn't ignite, turn off gas supply valve, wait about 5 minutes and try it again.
