Re: gas fireplace question
Simulated gas log fireplaces usually don't have a blower of any type. They depend on the radiant and conducted heat much like there was a real wood fire in the firebox. Look in the manual to determine if a blower was included, but I doubt it because of risk that CO would be propelled into the living space.

Crumple up newspaper, use it like a rag, scrubbing the glass. Not abrasive enough to scratch the glass but enough to clean soot deposits.

Simple I should think the thermostats have gone.
These are silver round objects with one wire in and one wire out. They have a bimetallic disc inside which flips when a certain predetermined temperature is reached. Sounds like yours is flipping out fairly quickly. Can you hear the fire click just after the element starts turning orange? These thermostats are fairly universal and have a number on them which determines the value. Before investigation definitely unplug the fire as this ill definitely kill you!!
You can check the thermostat by disconnecting the wires, and checking the resistance from each terminal when it is cold, it should be an open circuit.....no reading....a simple way to see if it is tripping out very quickly, heat it gently with a hair dryer...if it clicks really quickly......definitely the stat.
Also, if there is a trip switch, this would indicate a different fault such as a faulty or burnt wire causing a short circuit. Hopefully this is not the case, especially as it seems you are not blowing a fuse or tripping your fuse box. Good luck. Stats on eBay, same as the type that are used in tumble dryers.
Not for sure what you have, but if you just purchased the house, there might be air in the gas lines. If it sat vacant and the gas was off, or if they has swapped meters/worked on gas lines? Try cycling the fireplace several times. Or look around for a small door opening or if it's mounted to the exterior wall, look outside for the supply line in. If you do find a valve in the closed position, be aware of the fact that it may be off due to a reason, and you may want a plumber/fire place tech to service it.
Any timer will work as long as you don't exceed the voltage. The switch you have now is simply breaking one wire, when you flip the switch it lets the wire complete its circuit, a timer does the same thing and the voltage really has nothing to do with it other than a 220 switch would have to break 2 wires . Hope this helps and please don
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.
I have a Model 792864B. Before you attempt to light the pilot light - make sure that any wall control switch or remote control for the fireplace is in the off position. Locate the gas supply line. There should be a gas supply valve to turn on the gas supply. The valve is usually painted a different color than the supply line like blue, green or yellow. Open the valve by pivoting the handle to be parallel to the gas line, usually counter-clockwise. When it is closed it is at a 90 degree angle from the supply line. Locate the pilot light assembly - this is the pilot light. There should also be a red or black ignitor button and a black or green valve control knob with the words "on" "off" and "pilot" on it. It may be located inside a black box, mine is marked heatolator, that has a lift off top. Lift off the top of the box. Push in the valve control knob and turn it until the word "pilot" is in line with the arrow (my arrow is red) or indicator line. While pressing and holding in the valve control knob - it presses in about 1/4", press the red or black ignitor button repeatedly (once per second) until the pilot ignites. Once the pilot is lit, continue to hold the valve knob in for about 30 seconds and then slowly release. The pilot should remain lit. If it remains lit, press in and turn the valve control knob to the "on" position. The on/off wall or remote control switch should now light your fireplace. If the pilot doesn't ignite, turn off gas supply valve, wait about 5 minutes and try it again.
