Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

We have a Valor Model 466 Black Beauty OXYSAFE Fire, when you turn the sparker on the fire lights and you hold it down for a short time but as soon as you release the ignition the flame cuts out. We have held the button down for over a minute and it still goes out.

It sounds as though you have a bad thermocouple. Replacing the thermocouple which senses the heat from the flame should correct your problem. The thermocouple is a safety device which when working properly sends an electrical signal to the main gas valve that your pilot lite is on and holds the valve in the operational mode.

The pilot light is out on my valor gas fire place. When I go to light it the flame comes on but if you let the button up to turn on the burners it goes out.


Keep the pilot gas control pressed down for 30 seconds to a minute after it lights to allow the thermopile in the pilot light to heat up. If you are already doing this the thermopile needs replacing

The flame effect on my valor 846 electric fire is not coming on, i think it is an led that is not lighting up. how do you change the led and where can i get one. thanks Gerald


The LED is on a circuit board located inside the fire. The board itself needs to be replaced.

The part would be available from valor spares under your warranty.

The number for valor spares can be found at Valor fires

if you removed the Ignitor the oven will not light it has a safety valve that operates at this same time the ignitor is trying to get hot once it reaches a certain amount of power it will open the valve for the gas.
you may need to replace your ignitor,and or your electronic control board.
