SOURCE: Propane fireplace insert won't light

Gas apliances have safety features built into them so you don't blow yourself up. The pilot heats a thermocoupler which tells the gas valve there is a flame, open the main gas to the burner. If you can see the flame area of the pilot look for a round post about 3/16 inch in diamiter. This should be directly in the flame, if not bend the bracket so it is in one side of the pilot flame. The thermocouple is attached to a mounting bracket. This will be held in place by a 1/4 inch hex screw. remove the screw and the capilary tube leading to the gas control valve. Before you do anything, close the main gas supply to the fireplace and disconnect the power to the fan. You may need to semi dismantle the fireplace to get the thermocouple. The gas valve end is a brass 1/4 pipe thread plug. Turn the outer nut and remove without twisting the tube. Reverse this order to install a new one. Besure not to twist the capilary tube, tighten brass nut 1/4 turn past hand tight. Your better heating supply house will have these in stock. Restarting the pilot will take a few tries because the gas was off. Your gas suplier would charge about $75 to fix this. if you don't have the proper tools and it dosen't look pretty stright forward don't do it. You could get dead.

SOURCE: my propane fireplace pilot light wont stay lighted

Most gas valves have a flame sensor, which is a metal bulb at the end of a wire. The pilot light heats this bulb, and the valve stays open because there's a flame. If the flame has been out, you'll need to hold down the pilot light button for as much as two minutes after lighting the flame to allow the flame to heat the flame sensor up enough to keep supplying gas when you release the button.

The number you provided is for a blower kit. However, I was able to find a pdf for you that should describe your fireplace. See this link:

The blower kit is described at the end of the manual.

Ven tfree propane fireplace will not stay running after being ignited


You may have one of several issues that can cause this ...
1. your pilot assembly could need replacing
2. you may not have enough ambient air flow and the oxygen sensor will shut it down

I suggest you have a qualified technician come out and inspect the system to see where the real issue lay. They will have to light it and see it burn to rectify the issue.

I HAVE A HC3820 AND AM CURRENTLY LOOKING TO OBTAIN A BLOWER. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE ONE NEEDED FOR THIS MODEL IS FAK-1500 AND I CANT FIND IT ANYWHERE! PLEASE HELP!


Honestly, go to www.grainger.com. Since Superior/Lennox Hearth/and FMi are all merging into one company you are going to have a very hard time finding replacement parts for older Superior units. Plus the new company, Astria Fireplaces, is going to be using FMI for their woodburning products so no more Superior products available.
If you bring the old blower to your local Grainger they can match it up. I hope this helps.

My fire place elecric starter won't work after running out of propane


Most likely, you need to "bleed the line". The new propane needs to travel to your fireplace, but you have a huge air pocket in there now since it ran dry. It takes forever for the air to "bleed" out through the tiny orifice of a pilot light, especially if the distance from the fireplace to the tank is far.

Napoleon Fireplace propane Pilot won't light main burner even though gas flows in?


  • I'm going to assume your fireplace has a pilot light.
  • Follow the little holes in the burner that lead to the pilot light.
  • Make sure the pilot flame is pointing directly at the closest burner hole. (adjust if necessary).
  • Often, you will need to sprinkle a layer of "glowing embers" in this area. The embers will help the gas travel to the pilot light and ignite.
  • Always start your propane appliance on "High" never "Low". Cold propane likes to drop to the bottom of the firebox and accumulate until it reaches the pilot (this is called delayed ignition). Keeping it on "high" will help the fuel travel over to the pilot without buildup.
