SOURCE: Propane fireplace insert won't light

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.

SOURCE: Gas fireplace pilot flame won't stay lit.

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.

SOURCE: fireplace clicks and shuts off when running

There are a few things that could be causing this problem. The most common resolution to this problem is making sure the thermo couple is screwed tight into the valve. While looking at the gas control valve, you'll see a few wires and small metal tubes going into it. The one you want to tighten is the tube that is copper. Even if you get only a half a turn on the little brass fitting that's holding it screwed in, that's usually enough. If that doesn't do the trick let me know and I'll get back to you with some other things to try.

SOURCE: I HAVE A DESA LP VENTLESS FIREPLACE AND THE PILOT

the heater makes use of a millivolt generator which generates a small dc voltage (500-750mv) that is applied to the pilot valve of your main gas valve. when you light your pilot, the flame bathes the generator with a flame. after a delay you release the pilot button. if the generator is working, the pilot valve will stay lit. if the generator is not working the flame will go out as soon as you release the pilot button. change the generator.

I am just guessing but it may be set to low. The rush of air when it extinguishes could be blowing it out.

Good Luck,

Nepolean fireplace wont come on when switch turned on. pilot works fien


I have a Monarch fireplace (LP). Each year I have to take a can of computer cleaner "air" and spray out the oxygen sensor located near the pilot light. If dust or a spider blocks this oxygen sensor, the unit will NOT turn on. The pilot lights but the rest won't start. You can also contact your local gas company and ask where yours is located on your unit.

Napoleon Fireplace won't fire


I would suggest calling Napoleon at 1-(800) 461-5581 and find an AUTHORIZED SERVICING DEALER in your area to diagnose the problem. You can also go to www.napoleon.com, put in your zip code, and it will pull up who is and isn't an authorized dealer in your area.
The company I work for has been in the fireplace business for over 35 years. Napoleon is one of the brands that we have access to. The BGD36CFG is not a simple unit to diagnose. If you can not find a servicing dealer in your area I would call a licensed HVAC but always default to calling Napoleon first. There is no telling why the fireplace will not ignite. Below is the

Napoleon Fireplace propane Pilot won't light main burner even though gas flows in?


  • I'm going to assume your fireplace has a pilot light.
  • Follow the little holes in the burner that lead to the pilot light.
  • Make sure the pilot flame is pointing directly at the closest burner hole. (adjust if necessary).
  • Often, you will need to sprinkle a layer of "glowing embers" in this area. The embers will help the gas travel to the pilot light and ignite.
  • Always start your propane appliance on "High" never "Low". Cold propane likes to drop to the bottom of the firebox and accumulate until it reaches the pilot (this is called delayed ignition). Keeping it on "high" will help the fuel travel over to the pilot without buildup.

I changed my thermocouple on my fireplace,it still wont stay lit


Thermocouple keeps the pilot lit.
Thermopile keeps the burner lit.
Please specify what won't stay lit...
If it's the burner, you may need to change the thermopile as well.
If the pilot still won't stay lit, you will want to make sure that the pilot flame is large enough to completely engulf the thermocouple and keep it hot. If it's too small, you may need to take some compressed air and blow out the pilot hood to remove any blockage.

Thermopile


Not thermopile. If your pilot will not remain lit, you need a thermo-couple. This is the device that allows the pilot to remain lit.
If you can't even get it lit, you will need to check if there is blockage preventing gas from coming out of the pilot orifice.

I can't seem to get my Napoleon gas fireplace to work. I have the pilot light lit, but it won't turn on from there when I use the remote. I have put new batteries in everything. Any ideas?


hello. Remove the batteries from the remote and from the signal receiving box located somewhere near the front of the firebox. Clean all of the contacts in both devices and the contacts on both ends of the batteries with the eraser on the end of a common pencil. Be sure all of the batteries are fresh and charged then reinstall them and you should be up and running. Regards,Joe. ps. please rate my answer. thanks.

The pilot stays on but the burner willnot operate


thormopile may be gone or your wires or switch have bad connection, try taking a small jumper wire and with pilot lit , jump out the valve on the top and bottom screws on the gas valve located inside bottom door. no danger of shock seing this is low voltage and cannot shock you , you can't ever fell it. if unit lights then check wires at switch and gas valve
