Hi , you can try and pull the panel on the bottom of fireplace out and check the adapter in fireplace. Sometimes they go bad. When you open in also check to see if there is an adapter plugged in and a option to use the battery operated function. If this goes bad the pilot will not stay lit.

Make sure the pilot is clean (Blue flame fully enveloping the top portion of the thermocouple) if its dirty the pilot will be yellow like a candle and barely touching the thermocouple ...quick fix is knock the pilot with a screwdriver...gently tapping it...knocking the dust out and getting a better pilot....the pilot could also be too small if its not making good contact with the thrermocouple....there could also be an Auxillary limit wired into the thermocouple which when open will prevent the magnet from staying closed....if all looks fine then the Gas Valve itself is likely gone (The magnet inside is not field repairable)

sounds like your thermacouplar is going out and needs replaced. Sometimes these will act like they are working fine , but when the pilot stays on for awhile and later goes out it is a sure sign that it is bad

Go to www.grainger.com and look for a "power pile generator" this is a millivolt thermocouple that may be just what you need to make your heater work again
