SOURCE: Gas fireplace pilot flame won't stay lit.

Hi , you can try and pull the panel on the bottom of fireplace out and check the adapter in fireplace. Sometimes they go bad. When you open in also check to see if there is an adapter plugged in and a option to use the battery operated function. If this goes bad the pilot will not stay lit.

If the pilot gets the least bit of dust in the safety will mimmick a low oxygen situation and cause the heater to shut down. The fix is easy. You must blow out the pilot safety device. More HERE

Majestic gas fireplace mmodel majestic fireplace 36CDVXTRN will not stay lite after 20 minutes.


If you are able to , open the burner box , the igniter has a thermocouple ( might look like a thick wire that would be in the flame if it were on). If it gets corroded or junked up it will not register the flames presence and will shut off the gas). Take an emory cloth and polish it. Hope it helps.

GAS FIREPLACE SOMETIMES TURNS ON AND SOMETIMES NOT. ALSO, IT CAN BE ON AND THEN THE FLAME GOES OUT BUT A FEW MINUTES LATER COMES ON. SUGGESTIONS?


This is a typical situation for a warn Powerpile generator. Your fireplace works by this generator generating heat from your pilot flame and converting it to less than 3/4 of a volt or 750mv. Your gas valve will eat up half of this electricity when running. So when you Powerpile gets warn it might only generate 400mv and when the gas valve turns on will bring it down below 200mv. This will start to drop once the main burner turns on and once below 150mv is no longer able to power the gas valve resulting in the main flame to go out. Minutes later the generator will build its power up again and repeat the cycle. The generator looks a little thicker than a crayon and has a red and white wire coming off it. They are easy to change but the tight spaces on a fireplace can make it very difficult.

The pilot will light manually with a match but after a minute when the knob is released the gas will stop to the pilot and the flame goes out when turnign to "ON"


sounds like you need to replace the thermocouple. this part is heated by the pilot flame and it sends a low voltage flame to the gas valve to open the main gas flow valve. they are very easy to install and they are located next to the pilot burner and screw into the gas valve.

You may have a few sensors, one may be a thermopile that energizes the pilot. It is a very thin but long bulb located in the pilot flame. Then you may have something called a thermopile which is also located in the pilot flame that energizes the main gas valve. It is a larger diameter bulb and will have metal wrapped wireg going to the gas valve. If the pilot stays on but the flame goes out under the logs, change your thermopile and look for a bad connection at the gas valve or switch. If both the main burner and the pilot goes out you may have a gas valve problem or a plugged vent pipe. If the flame just disappears it is most likely a gas valve. If the flame changes colors and lifts from the burner, that is a sign of a plugged vent. Good luck.

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.

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.
