It was suggested I clean the pilot. I bought pipe cleaners and cleaned the pilot and now it works as it should. Thank you for the help.

This type of heater is very sensitive to the state of the pilot since it uses a Renni type thermocouple to sense a low oxygen situation. Usually the pilot needs to be cleaned. If that does not restore operation only other thing to do is try replacing the thermocouple.
A low pilot will usually hold for a few minutes so I would expect that you have a bad thermocouple.

Pilot light lights but will not stay lit with full Propane tank.


Unscrew the thermocouple at the gas valve. Lightly sand the connections,seat and thermocouple end. Sometimes the tiny current generated that keeps a gas valve open will be diminished by corrosion. don-ohio

Lighting the pilot, starting the fireplace


Turn on the gas, hold the pilot flame button down and light the pilot flame, continue to hold the button for at least three min's, release the button pilot should stay lighted.
