Charmglow Ventless Heater. Pilot will not stay lit. Replace?


If you are lighting it correctly I am guessing the thermocouple is defective or has been dislodged so that it does not end up in the pilot flame. It may need replaced.

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.

Procom pilot light wont light


Make sure the gas valve is on. The thermocouple may need to be cleaned in order for the pilot to stay lit.

I changed my thermocouple on my fireplace,it still wont stay lit


Thermocouple keeps the pilot lit.
Thermopile keeps the burner lit.
Please specify what won't stay lit...
If it's the burner, you may need to change the thermopile as well.
If the pilot still won't stay lit, you will want to make sure that the pilot flame is large enough to completely engulf the thermocouple and keep it hot. If it's too small, you may need to take some compressed air and blow out the pilot hood to remove any blockage.

Gas fireplace wont stay lit- it is a sealed unit so can taccess the pilot or gas holes in the logs. is it safe to remove glass panel?


Yes, removing the glass is safe, if you do it carefully, so as not to break it. Put it well out of your way, after removing it. In fact, removing it is the only way to access and service the Pilot Assembly and the Burners.

If the pilot won't stay lit, there are several things that can cause this on a Direct Vent Gas Fireplace:
  • The direct vent on the outside of the house is block or clogged.
  • Wind is blowing back through the direct vent, blowing out the pilot.
  • Low gas pressure
  • A dirty pilot.
  • The thermocouple and/or Thermopile (part of the pilot assembly) has failed.
If you can provide me with the make and model number of your gas fireplace, I may be able to furnish you with an Owners Manual, that will help you to continue to troubleshoot the problem.

Hope this helped you.

My fireplace wont stay lit with the glass on the min i take the glass off it will stay lit i have a good vent and it is propain could it be that there ant enough gas presure it is a heat n glo 6000 the...


The reason this is happening is that the overload switch, which is part of the safety features has gone bad. That's why the burner will only light with the glass off. The orange color of the flame from the pilot flame is normal for propane.

Unfortunately, this is not a DIY fix. If you can find a qualified service technician, that's the best way to go. As, Heat-n-Glow fireplaces are a basic, builder box line. And as such, have some quirks that other, more expensive gas fireplaces don't have.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

I have a pyromaster ventless gas fireplace. the pilot will light but will not stay lit unless i'm depressing the pilot


Your thermo-couple is bad. It`s the rod the pilot light hits with a very small copper tube that goes to the gas valve. You can pick one of these up at your local hardware store for about 15 bucks and they are easy to change.

I have a Charmglow ventless gas heater after it reaches temp, the pilot light goes out.


I have had a Charmglow for about five years and was doing the same thing. I called a plumber that worked with gas fireplaces and he came out, clean the pilot light and now it works great. Cost was $99.00
