My gas fireplace shuts off after burning about five minutes - both main burner and pilot shut off.


Most fire place burners have an oxygen depletion sensor on them nowadays. If you can restart it after a while, a few minutes or so, and shuts off, it is probably the oxygen sensor. The owner lights fireplace and shuts the door, and the fire depletes the available oxygen and the fire will start producing copious amounts of CO which is a hazard. Most fireplaces have a fresh air supply available to provide combustion air but needs to be opened for the fireplace to work properly. Check the manufactures recommendation as to the proper installation of the fireplace furnace.
Hope this helps

Gas fireplace lights up but only half the burner stays on after running for a few minutes


Do not operate this fireplace until problem is solved.

Could be low gas pressure, or dirty combustion parts, or bad gas control valve.
Contact gas company immediately for specialist in area.

If burner is dirty and clogged, then unburned, explosive gas can be going up the flueway. This is a dangerous condition that needs to be addressed before putting fireplace back into service.

Web-search your specific brand and model number, and include .pdf in search parameter for possible downloadable product manual.
Read product manual for advisories and maintenance and troubleshoot and warranty.

Fireplace clicks and shuts off when running


There are a few things that could be causing this problem. The most common resolution to this problem is making sure the thermo couple is screwed tight into the valve. While looking at the gas control valve, you'll see a few wires and small metal tubes going into it. The one you want to tighten is the tube that is copper. Even if you get only a half a turn on the little brass fitting that's holding it screwed in, that's usually enough. If that doesn't do the trick let me know and I'll get back to you with some other things to try.
