Question about Napoleon 36" Zero Clearance Top/Rear Vent Natural Gas Fireplace with Black Door

Fireplace clicks and shuts off when running

I have a Napoleon natural gas fireplace (002294) and it keeps shutting off after about a minute. You can hear a click and then it goes off and shuts the pilot light off as well. Just started doing this.

    Not sure the brand of my fireplace, but it is also a gas fireplace and it goes out soon after it lights.

There are a few things that could be causing this problem. The most common resolution to this problem is making sure the thermo couple is screwed tight into the valve. While looking at the gas control valve, you'll see a few wires and small metal tubes going into it. The one you want to tighten is the tube that is copper. Even if you get only a half a turn on the little brass fitting that's holding it screwed in, that's usually enough. If that doesn't do the trick let me know and I'll get back to you with some other things to try.

Its usually just as simple as cleaning the air inlet port on your pilot light! They usually take in a little dust or some cob webs that may develop when not in use. it is the little hole in the side of the piece that your pilot light comes out of! just a can of air duster and removing the logs off your burner blowing out the hole and putting it back together and enjoy!

Installed Napoleon IR3 gas insert. Worked find the first 10-12 time on. Now on start-up it makes a VERY loud noise (kind of like a train). After about 10 minutes, the noise just stops. Any ideas?

Yes, it sounds like you have a gas pressure problem. You will need a manometer or a water inch Gage might work. Check the inlet pressure and compare it to the ratings on your fp nameplate. If it is low on the inlet side when it's making this noise you either have a restriction in your gas line, usually water from a leak, or your regulator from the gas company is not set properly. In the lattercase call them and inform them of your trouble.

Gas fireplace lights up but only half the burner stays on after running for a few minutes

Do not operate this fireplace until problem is solved.

Could be low gas pressure, or dirty combustion parts, or bad gas control valve.
Contact gas company immediately for specialist in area.

If burner is dirty and clogged, then unburned, explosive gas can be going up the flueway. This is a dangerous condition that needs to be addressed before putting fireplace back into service.

Web-search your specific brand and model number, and include .pdf in search parameter for possible downloadable product manual.
Read product manual for advisories and maintenance and troubleshoot and warranty.
