Typically, if the pilot stays on and the logs won't light, the thermopile or entire pilot assembly could be bad. If you have an IPI system [automatic lighting system from remote or wall switch] there may be an issue with the control module.

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.

check to make sure your pilot orfice is not clogged it will be located at the end of the small tube coming from your gas control valve if its not then while you are trying to light the pilot tap the side of the gas valve (sometims somewhat hard) if it then lights you know you have a bad gas valve

Pilot lite went out and will not relite


The thermocouple is not functioning. The t/c is the small (sensor) tube that the flame touches and should have a small copper tube (capillary) extending to the gas valve. (IMPORTANT: The capillary tube should not have any kinks or crimped places...Only gentle bends. A crimped tube will require t/c replacement.) The flame will deposit a coating (minerals) that will insulate the t/c and prevent it from working. Clean the sensor with steel wool, fine sand paper (emery board) or scotch pad. Now try to relight the pilot making sure the t/c sensor is contacted by the flame, if not, shut off gas and adjust. Once aligned and contacted by pilot flame, hold for a minute, allowing the t/c to warm up fully and signal the gas valve to operate when knob is turned from pilot to operate.

I can light pilot but cant get main burner to stay on. Ive cleaned out hooded pilot with wire. what next


Clean the gas tube before the pilot light with a small wire. If you don't light these units every month or so you can get all sorts of bugs and critters that will call your gas tube home. Second option - Either the thermocouple is bad or the gas control valve is not opening completely. Try replacing the thermocouple

My pilot light kept going out. I cleaned it


You may have to get a new thermocouple.

This is a small copper tube that goes from the pilot light area to tha gas valve.

It feels the heat from the pilot and keeps the gas valve open for gas to flow to the pilot or to the logs when in the lit position.

Without the gas valve will stay closed.

Sounds like a bad pilot sensor called a Thermocouple. It is a copper tube that goes from the gas valve to the pilot assembly. It is the smaller of the two tubes. They are available at better hardware or farm stores. It is best to unscrew it from the gas valve and pilot assembly and bring it with you when you shop for one. It is something any mechanically inclined homeowner can replace.
