That goes IN to or close to the actual Fire Bed ... it is your Thermo-probe that reports back to the unit that it is "On"

The polit will not stay on even after holding down the on/off control for 2 to 3 minutes.

Sounds like you have a bad Pilot Safety also known as a Thermocouple. If you look at the pilot, you will notice a small copper probe that is in the flame of the pilot. Follow the probe back to the gas valve and remove it. No gas will leak out. Bring the whole probe to a good hardware store or fireplace shop for a new one.

We have a Marco fireplace and the damper does not shut. I push the leaver inwards but nothing catches to keep it closed. We purchased this house and the fireplace was replaced with Gas Logs but still...

when the gas logs were installed the vent damper should have disabled. it sounds like this was is unsafe to close the damper with gas piped into the fire place. sometimes a "u" block will be placed over the damper blade. if the gas has been removed and not piped into the firebox anymore it would be safe to remove this

I have a 25000 btu Empire and I can not get the pilot light to stay lit. Any thoughts

The pilot safety is bad. It is also called a thermocouple. If you look at the pilot through the viewing port you will see a copper probe that will work its way to the gas valve. This is the thermocouple. To remove it, remove the 10 or so screws holding the burner box to the bottom of the combustion chamber, remove the screw holding the pilot assembly to the burner and slowly wiggle out the entire pilot assembly. Unscrew the copper probe from the gas valve than turn it out of the pilot assembly Take it to a good hardware store and match up the length. You may have to purchase a longer one but you can coil up any extra. Reverse the removal procedure to install and make sure you seal up the burner box with high temp silicon prior to lighting.

I need to install a new therm a coupler on my stove but can't find my manuel lost it in a fire. Any help appreciated

This is a fairly simple fix. On the pilot end see the probe, it mounts in a bracket that holds the probe in the pilot. From the probe runs a copper line that goes into the gas valve. Just detach from both ends remove and replace. If you have the exact part its just a swap out. If you have bought a generic (one size fits all kit) this may require putting some bends in the copper line. Place the probe in the bracket in the pilot use gentle bends to get the gas valve end to line up to where it attaches to gas valve. Be careful not to kink the copper line,this will ruin it.

Pilot light comes on but oven wont heat up

The gas valve has a bimetal flap in it that is acticated by the small probe washing in the flame of that pilot light. Clever ain't it? Sometimes you can re position that probe to where more flame hits the tip of the copper/nickel probe. The 2 metals trun into a battery when heated up and millivolts are produced. The probe simply wears out over time. The whole valve needs to be replaced. You cannot just replace the probe. The new part will not be preset. make sure the orifice is at the same height as the old one before install. Bubble test and you should be good. This is not hard and not scary. But be sure to bubble test for gas leaks. Take a look at these repair pix
