Question about Heating & Cooling
Taken everything apart and cleaned thoroughly, made sure we had gas, re-connect gas line using better connectors
Check the pilot generator for proper current. check from PP terminal to TH/PP terminal while pilot is still lit. you should be getting well over 250dc millivolts. if not, replace the pilot generator

Gas apliances have safety features built into them so you don't blow yourself up. The pilot heats a thermocoupler which tells the gas valve there is a flame, open the main gas to the burner. If you can see the flame area of the pilot look for a round post about 3/16 inch in diamiter. This should be directly in the flame, if not bend the bracket so it is in one side of the pilot flame. The thermocouple is attached to a mounting bracket. This will be held in place by a 1/4 inch hex screw. remove the screw and the capilary tube leading to the gas control valve. Before you do anything, close the main gas supply to the fireplace and disconnect the power to the fan. You may need to semi dismantle the fireplace to get the thermocouple. The gas valve end is a brass 1/4 pipe thread plug. Turn the outer nut and remove without twisting the tube. Reverse this order to install a new one. Besure not to twist the capilary tube, tighten brass nut 1/4 turn past hand tight. Your better heating supply house will have these in stock. Restarting the pilot will take a few tries because the gas was off. Your gas suplier would charge about $75 to fix this. if you don't have the proper tools and it dosen't look pretty stright forward don't do it. You could get dead.

it is likely you have dirty O2sensor, it is incorporated into pilot assembly.turn unit off,use compressed air in a can and blow into spot where pilot flames comes from.this will fix it in most cases.in a small % of time entire pilot assembly needs to be taken apart and cleaned

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
