More than likely it is the thermo couple.
It is a small tube at the end of a thin copper line.
It typically mounts in front of your pilot flame. The copper line runs back to you control.
When heated by the pilot it tells the control valve that there is a fire thus allowing the gas to flow to the burner. It is a safety feature to keep you from filling you house up with unburned gas.
When not functioning correctly it stops the gas to the burner.
You should be able to pick up a replacement at any big box or hardware store.
Some have different mounting styles. Best to remove the old one and take it with you.

SOURCE: electric fireplace does not heat
I have a cheap electric fireplace bought in SuperCentre store-heater no longer works. It says its a one piece system. Can these heaters be replaced or repaired(probably made in China) or am i better off scrapping it and buying a new one?

SOURCE: flame burns to high
I had this problem. From using the center brick most of the time, lots of dust bunnies build up in the gas chimney behind the brick.
Tie 2 pipe cleaners together with a small perpendicular circle at the top and carefully remove the dust bit by bit by twirling the cleaner.
The brick should fire like new if it is carefully cleaned out.
