I have the same problem occasionally with a Paragon 2000R. It seems to be related to the thermocouple. The pilot flame does not heat the thermocouple enough. Usually re-arranging the the artificial coal to reflect some of the heat back to the thermocouple will just make the difference. Maybe it is time for a new thermocouple.

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 pilot light comes on when control depressed but when it is released so it can be turned to a gas control it goes out. If the fire is lit successfully, it then goes out after approx 10 mins


if pilot is blue and torch like then the thermocouple is bad. if pilot is layz and yellow then it needs to be cleaned.remove pilot gas tube and clear orifice,looks like small thimble. reassemble and check tightness with soapy water when gas is flowing

My heat n glow fireplace comes on fine with all burners running but shuts off about 5 seconds later. it seems the sensor that detects a flame thinks the fire has not started and shuts down the gas. Is...


You may have a few sensors, one may be a thermopile that energizes the pilot. It is a very thin but long bulb located in the pilot flame. Then you may have something called a thermopile which is also located in the pilot flame that energizes the main gas valve. It is a larger diameter bulb and will have metal wrapped wireg going to the gas valve. If the pilot stays on but the flame goes out under the logs, change your thermopile and look for a bad connection at the gas valve or switch. If both the main burner and the pilot goes out you may have a gas valve problem or a plugged vent pipe. If the flame just disappears it is most likely a gas valve. If the flame changes colors and lifts from the burner, that is a sign of a plugged vent. Good luck.
