I have a gas fireplace in my home. I've connected the gas tanks outside, but can't get the pilot to light. I can see the spark, but can't get it to catch. Any advise?

Check the pressure at the unit inside and make sure the pressure is correct,ther might be a problem between the tank and the unit only letting enough gas to run the pilot light

The fireplace probably has a thermocoupler. It produces current when engulfed by the pilot light flame. The small current produced (you can check for output with a votmeter) is enought to allow the gas valve to open when you turn on the switch to start the flame. The solid metal tube may not be properly connecting with the flame - repostion the pilot light and make sure surrounding air flow does not distort the pilot light pattern too much. OR the surface of the device may be slightly oxidized - very gently sand or wire brush it. Again check for small voltage output. If no volts - REPLACE THERMOCOUPLER.

My Insta_Flame gas fire place will not turn off completely. We ahve turned off the gas supply now, but before it still had a tiny flame burning even when turned off.


boy that is one sad excuse for a heating guy. how foes this thing flame on? if it doesn't have an electronic spark start mechanism then it operates with a pilot light that will always be going as it uses this small flame (pilot light) to ignite the gas when the thermostat turns it on.

Majestic DVR 36 RN gas fireplace pilot flickers when ignited, eventually gets to full pilot. Ocasionaly burner shuts off, pilot remains on. Also, need owners manual for part numbers. Help.


Does your fireplace have a thermostat connected? If so, that may be why the pilot stays on and the burner goes off. Otherwise, it could be a bad thermopile. If that is the case, I recommend you just replace the entire pilot assembly. It is an older model and manuals can be hard ti find. If you still have trouble, I recommend you contact a local certified gas appliance technician.

It sounds like the Ignition Control Module went out, as I've heard the vibrating noise you speak of just before the module "dies." You most likely have the gray Robertshaw control module box located under the fireplace connecting the power to the gas valve. You will need to have a Certified Gas Fireplace Specialist look into this issue and replace, if necessary.
