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.

Sometimes when you turn a gas heater off for some time, if the source tank has been turned off, the line will bleed the propane and the line will contain mostly air. This is especially true if the supply line is long. In order to light the pilot, you will have to hold the pilot lighting button down for a while (a full minute or longer, depending on the size and length of the supply line) before pure propane arrives at the pilot light jet. You should keep a lighted lighter at the jet so that when the gas arrives, the lighter will light it. After the pilot lights, you will have to keep the button pressed long enough for the thermocouple to get hot enough to set the pilot to stay on. When it is hot enough, you should be able to release the pressed lighting button and the pilot should stay on. If it does, you should be able to light the heater. If the pilot jet never lights, gas is not getting to the regulator. If the pilot will not stay lit after a period of time waiting for it to heat the thermocouple, the thermocouple or the regulator may be bad and need replacement. :-)

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.
