SOURCE: Need Instructions to use Fireplace Gas Logs

There should be a set of metal cards attached inside the fireplace.
First you should read everything there.

I know you have to first light the pilot light.
And then there should be a wall switch.

The problem I have currently is that it won't stay lit when the artificial logs are there.

Sometimes when you turn a gas heater off for some time, if the source tank has been turned off, the line will bleed the propane and the line will contain mostly air. This is especially true if the supply line is long. In order to light the pilot, you will have to hold the pilot lighting button down for a while (a full minute or longer, depending on the size and length of the supply line) before pure propane arrives at the pilot light jet. You should keep a lighted lighter at the jet so that when the gas arrives, the lighter will light it. After the pilot lights, you will have to keep the button pressed long enough for the thermocouple to get hot enough to set the pilot to stay on. When it is hot enough, you should be able to release the pressed lighting button and the pilot should stay on. If it does, you should be able to light the heater. If the pilot jet never lights, gas is not getting to the regulator. If the pilot will not stay lit after a period of time waiting for it to heat the thermocouple, the thermocouple or the regulator may be bad and need replacement. :-)

SOURCE: my fireplace pilot lite wont stay lite

There is a valve which you are bypassing when you press the pilot button. It is usually a sealed hydralic valve which holds the gas on as long as a flame is on the bulb. This expands the fluid and keeps the gas valve open. If the bulb moved and is not in the flame, or near enough, it will not stay on. Also since it sat for a year the internal workings of the valve could have "gummed" up. You need to replace the valve. You did not mention the name or model of the unit. Do a search with your units brand name followed by heater followed by parts. This should return dealers who can supply the part you need. Let me know if you need anymore help.

SOURCE: gas fireplace

yes it is important to stack them right but just trying to figure it out by the depressions is not right you need a diagram to show you or just call service agent its better to do right or it will coast you later when it causes your heater to break down i've seen various ways that people try and do logs even following the book my best suggestion is call service agent they should know how to do it correctly

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 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.

Pilot light stays lit but burner on gas logs goes out


You may need a new pilot assembly. Typically one of two issues result from a bad pilot assembly:
1. The pilot won't stay on after lighting it
2. Pilot stays on but logs won't light.

Depending on the unit, you may need a new thermopile or a whole new pilot assembly.

36ECMII pilot light won't light


If you go to this link http://fmisupport.hcents.com/supportdocs/54024F.pdf it will take you straight to the owner's manual.
Now the gas log set is completely seperate from the fireplace. You would need to find out the model of the gas log set as any manufactuer of vented gas logs can go in this fireplace. Just for clarification the brand is actually Coleman but it was made by FMI. Now, the SPVBPD is a direct vent gas log set that was only designed to go into either the Amity, Oxford, or Victor hearth gas stoves. If you have the SPVBPD burner in a 36ECMII then you honestly need to remove that log set, as it was a burner only rated for direct vent fireplaces, and get a set of 18" LP vented logs. If you look at the link below you will see the owner's manual for the SDVBND. These logs need to be removed and you can go with any 18" vented log set. I suggest Peterson (http://www.rhpeterson.com/realfyre/vented-series/)
as they have the widest selection of logs and biggest array of dealers. Good luck.

Pilot light wont stay lit on gas logs


If the pilot lite comes on, but will not stay on after it has had enough time to heat the thermocouple, you got a bad or the wrong thermocouple. It does take some time to heat that thermocouple.

Can one use unvented gas logs in a superior CF3860 fireplace?I


Little documentation on this fireplace but it appears to be a vented wood-burner(?) If vented, there should be no problem using gas logs. If burning correctly, you may consider cutting back on the flue and intake air, as moisture build-up is the biggest drawback to gas fireplaces. Too much air is just wasting gas.
