    Thanks thats about what I had figured. I can't find any way to adjust the pilot. Any suggestions on where the pilot adjustment is could it be out on the end where the flame is?

Your pilot is to much, turn it down on the gas valve. You just need enough flame to get it hot. Not to burn it up. Most gas valves have a adjustment for this. Post me back if you have any problems

Gas fireplace will not light up


If it has a pilot light, (website says it does) I suspect its the thermocouple. These are easy to change yourself and cheap, you can buy a universal thermocouple and it will be cheaper than a Napolean one. The end of the thermocouple is a fat copper pin that sits poking into a small pilot flame. The heat of the flame on the copper tells the system that the gas is burning ok so it allows more gas through. But after a few years the copper end gets covered in black charring and this slightly insulates it from the heat, so it signals to turn off the gas.

MAIN BURNER SHUTS DOWN JUST AFTER IGNITION FLAME RODS TESTED VENT CHECKED


The Thermocouple or Thermopile has failed and needs to be replaced. The Thermocouple is a safety feature that keeps the pilot burning if all operations of the gas valve are safe. If the pilot burns, the burners will light. The Thermocouple shuts off the gas control valve if the pilot goes out.

I have an empire heater and the problem that I am having is that when the valve is turned on high or any setting, the flame burns for a few minutes then goes out. It will not stay burning, we have to...


Have you replaced the thermocouple? Have you cleaned the Pilot? Do you have a strong pilot flame and is it touching the thermocouple? Sometimes if you don't have a good strong pilot is that when you turn the main gas on it pulls the pilot flame away from the thermocouple and cools it off so it drops the signal. Check the gas pressure should have 10 to 11 "WC of manifold pressure.
And you could have a bad gas valve. Hope this helps.

Charm glow gas heater won't stay lit changed thermocouple and it worked for 2 days


Dust build up inside the pilot light burner assembly. A clean pilot makes noise and has a blue flame when it is burning. A dirty pilot has a quiet and smaller flame with an orange tip.

Thermocoupling burns out every 7-10 days?


If your thermocouple is literally burning out, then have the pilot assembly checked and clean, check the orifice and the gas pressure to the pilot. Make sure the orifice size is correct for what type of fuel you are using (liquid propane or natural gas). Worst case you could have a gas valve or regulator going bad. Please have this done by a qualified service technician. I hope this helps.
