Trouble "lighting" our Majestic fireplace

Hello,  we have a Majestic fireplace that was already in our home we purchased new in 2000. This is not a product we have used a great deal over the years, mainly because of lighting issues we have had. We can light the pilot light, no problem. But when we turn the the switch on the wall to "ignite the logs", sometimes it takes anywhere from 5 to 8 hours to finally "come on", if at all. I am including the model and serial number, if this will help trouble shoot in any way. Model #NVC36RP. Serial # B32B00 99151564. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as we would really enjoy having it work properly. Thank you very much. Bill Greene

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.

We are in need of a heat exchanger for our 1979 Majestic heatilator fireplace. The size is approximately 19"X19". Where can we purchase this item?


Unfortunately, any replacement parts for a 1979 Majestic Fireplace are long gone. Majestic went bankrupt 4 or 5 years ago.

Sorry, I wish I had better news. But, it is what it is. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The back panel of our Majestic fireplace is cracked down the middle. Can we get a replacement, if so where? Our home was built in 1992. I don't know what model we have..


I assume you have a Majestic Wood Burning fireplace. If that's the case, you have a problem. The first is that Majestic, as such is no longer in business. The second is, if the fireplace is almost 20 years old, they don't make that firebox any longer.

However, since you have a refractory concrete liner, you may can repair it, if the crack is no wider than the thickness of a Dime. There is a high temp mortar that you can purchase from Lowe's or Ace Hardware that comes in a tube. Do not remove the cracked panel from the firebox. Simply clean any loose material from the crack with a tooth brush, being careful not to enlarge the crack. Apply the mortar as directed and it allow it to fully cure before setting another fire. It would also help to clean any debris and ash from the interior of the firebox, before attempting to make the repair. A shop vac equipped with a dust bag works great. It will keep all the dust in the vacuum bag and not blow it throughout the house. You can purchase these from Lowe's or Home Depot. Just match the bag size to gallon size of your shop vac.

If the crack is wider than the thickness of a dime, sadly you're out of luck. Leave the cracked panel in place and consider installing a vent-free or partially vented gas log set. They are rated as supplemental gas heating appliance with no fuss muss or dust to deal with.

Hope this helps solve your problem

When we built our home 6 years ago, Airtron installed a Majestic NVBR36RN vented fireplace system. We had to turn our gas off a while back and never thought about the fireplace until now when we wanted to...


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.
