There is a flame sensor for the pilot light that keeps the pilot light gas flowing from the main gas valve. If the sensor is too far away from the flame, it will stop the gas valve . The sensor itself can fail in time, so it may need to be replaced.

Pilot light 5301


The Skytech 5301 does not control your pilot light. That is a function of your fireplace's valve. Complete instructions for lighting your pilot can be found in the owner's manual of your fireplace, or at the brand's website.
The 5301 should not need to be reset in any way. Once your pilot is re-lit it will operate normally.
If you need a new copy of the 5301 manual, it can be found at the bottom of the product page here: Skytech 5301 fireplace remote.

Turned down the fireplace accidently turned it off. The pilot can be pushed in however it is not igniting . Can it be lit manually


If your getting a flame when igniting, and your still pressing in on the pilot then all you need to do is hold it in for about 30 seconds or so. This is because theres a thermal cutout then needs to heat up form the pilot to keep the flame lit.
If you've got no flame at all then you should look at your fireplace manual and see if theres an alternative to lighting the pilot. I wouldn't recommend opening it to light the pilot.

Have a GTI Insert Replaced the thermo coupler . Now the pilot light stays lit but when the fireplace starts it will only go for about 30 seconds then you hear a click and shuts down pilot and all.


It sounds to me like you have a bad flame sensor.Luckily most of the time they are pretty easy to change. If you have your manual it will show you the physical location of flame sensor. Usually 1 or 2 screws holding it in place. Remove screws and unplug wires to remove sensor.Install new sensor and hopefully you're in business. Thank you.

Fireplace will start but shuts off in about 30 seconds


Here's a few things to look for. After you light the pilot and turn on the burner, look at the pilot flame. Is it still a strong blue flame and it is still heating the thermocouple? If the pilot flame is a lazy yellow, it may not be able to keep a good enough flame on the thermocouple to keep it hot. The solution? Turn it all off and let it cool down. Take a can of compressed air, like you use to clean computer keyboards, and using the attached straw, blow out the dust or spider web that's partially blocking your pilot orifice. Where the pilot flame is usually lit, blow right down that flange, as well as through the air hole that is on the side of the pilot assembly. If you do it right, the pilot flame should be a nice and strong blue color. Another thought. Is this a vented or unvented fireplace? If it's vented, make sure it has the oxygen it needs to burn by checking for blocked vents or opening a closed fireplace fume above it.

It wont lite, how do you lite the pilot, where is it located, do you have a manual i have a coleman presidental 3 furnace


There is a window directly above the gas control valve. Either a spring held latch or a screw off cover need to be removed to access the pilot. To light the pilot, turn the knob to pilot and hold down while lighting pilot. The pilot in straight back inside the hole about 10 inches. Use a long fireplace match or rig a wire to hold the match. Once the pilot lights, hold the control knob down for about 30 secs., if it stays lit after release, turn to "On" and operate normally.

I need help relighting the pilot light on my Marco mfg gas fireplace-model # 794015c


First, turn the wall switch to the off position. Second, turn the key all the way tcountercockwise to the open position. At the front of the unit, below the hearth opening there is a black front access panel. Should have a little recessed part. pull it out and expose the gas valve. Turn the plunger/knob that says off, on, pilot to the pilot position. You'll knw your in the pilot position when it lines up with the indicator (usually a red or black mark on the gas valve body). If you are in the pilot position, you will be able to push in the pilot (it will feel springy). Push the plunger in and then push the red button (piezo ignition button) in until it makes a snapping sound. You may have to do this several times because the air has to bleed out from the pilot tubing. This should light the pilot BUT wait. DO NOT LET GO OF THE PLUNGER ONCE THE PILOT IS LIT. You need to keep the plunger depressed for about 30 seconds and then let it go. After 30 seconds let the plunger go and verify the pilot is lit. If not try the last step over. After the pilot is lit, you may turn the plunger/knob to the on position. Now go back to the wall switch and flip it on. If it doesn't come on tap it hard. Sometimes dust can actually prevent it from making good connection. I work on fireplaces for a living and coincidentally worked on this model today. Simple as pie.

Marco gas fireplace shuts off


This an easy fix. What you must do is remove the dust from the pilot safety. I use rust buster from ace hardware to gently flush the hole. If ther is no hole just shoot a tiny drop or 2 into the pilot burner where the flame comes out. Blow it out (I use a piece of tubing). The problem is the dust drops the pilot flame to a point where it won't heat the thermocouple hot enough to jold the magnet and after 30 minutes she quits. THIS is a picture of where to clean the ODS pilots in your rig.
