Yes, hopefully changing the thermocouple (skinny sensor) or thermopile(fat sensor) would do the trick.
Start with these fairly inexpensive repairs first.
Unfortunately if the honeywell valve is bad a new one can be expensive.
Also it is hard to order parts from Majestic, they just went bankrupt, not to long ago and Martin is taking them over. You might look for your valves model# and check online for other suppliers of that model# or ask for a compatible Direct Vent gas valve that's not as problematic. (eBay and HVAC dealers, etc.)
FYI:
You said it's been about 5 years, you might decide it's less of a hassle to have new gas fireplace installed. Martin and Empire are probably two of the best, with 5 year parts and labor warrantys.
Hope you find some success in your endeavor.

My majestic fireplace lights and the burner lights and I turn on the switch and the burner stays lit for a minute or two then I hear a click and the burner and pilot light shut off


yes this would appear to me to be the classic symptoms of a bad thermistor , this little device proves that fire has lit (via heat) and keeps gas valve open , otherwise gas valve times out and shuts off (safety)

Wind blows out the gas logs


I am sorry, but there is insufficient information to give a proper answer. If it is a vented logset, is it in a vented indoor firebox/fireplace or an outdoor fireplace?

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.

My Majestic gas fireplace pilot stays lit. But the burner does not light when heat is called for.


Check a safety device called thermopile which the two wires connected to the unit needs to be around 500mV to open gas. This part is between 35-50$ If that is not the problem, you may need to replace unit gas valve.

It has a panel hidden under the white fiber hearth bricks at the front bottom of the unit. you need to clean the lava rock off of them, pull both of them up, and then you will see the hidden linear cover that allows you to access the valve and light.

My Majestic DVR36RN gas-log fireplace insert will not start. No ignition when striker is depressed, no flame lit at all. Gas inlet line open, pilot switch to "pilot" as directed. Maybe...


Majestic DVR36RN: Here's what you need to do: Verify gas line is open. (You said you already have done that). Next turn the switch to pilot (you said you did that too). Make sure wall switch is on also. Now press and hold the pilot switch and hit the ignitor. Once it lights you need to continue to hold the pilot switch for roughly 1 minute. Release the knob and the flame should stay lighted. Now, turn the knob to on. You should be all set now.

Gas logs while turned on seem to fade, nearly go


you must keep the burner and the pilot light area clean and free of dust also,the area where your burner gets air most of the time it has an adjustment to give it more or less air.I have had my dyna glo vent free model for 8 years.A good cleaning in late fall with low pressure air and 1 or 2 times through the winter depending on conditions of use.

Gas Fireplace pilot light continually goes out


You may have a problem with the flame sensing capillary. It may need to be replaced, or it may need to be positioned into the pilot flame better, or you may need a new gas safety valve. Sometime there is an adjustment screw for the pilot which can make the flame bigger or smaller. If will be on the safety valve.
