Question about Heating & Cooling
Gas log lights correctly then shortly will shut down, pilot and all. You can relight immediately, and will run for a few more minutes then shut off again.
After you relight have you tried to leave the gas valve on pilot for 10 to 15 minutes so the themolpile warms up enough to send mil-volt signal. you also have a thermocouple that senses flam so if the flame is not hitting that just wright it will shut off. Is this fire place ran off a thermostat or a on off switch. If you are running off a thermostat then i would try to find on/off switch and try that. You might have to change pilot assembly out.If you do this and don't have manual i would take a picture of the log set up so you put it back together. Make sure all connections are tight when you go back together

Sounds like the gas regulator has failed.
There will be sufficient gas flow to light the pilot and get a flame prove, then the main burner lights, you will probably see the pilot flame reduce somewhat, and no longer fully surround the flame prove sensor.
When the unit is relighted, the complete sequence starts all over again.
Have the gas regulator checked and adjusted (if adjustable) or replaced by a qualified technician.
