Re: Marco gas fireplace

Turn the knob on the gas valve to pilot, push in and hold. You can push the red button to light the flame, but I always use a flame lighter of some sort, just because its faster and the spar-ker may not be working. Anyway, push the button in, and hold it after the pilot flame is on for a minute or so then let up on the button. If it stays on turn the gas knob to on and that's it.

My pilot light is out and I don't know how to light it please help

Most gas heating appliances have a knob on the gas valve marked on - off and pilot. Turn the knob to pilot this should allow the knob to be depressed which will allow gas to flow to the pilot. Some units also have a peizo ignitor which is a button that when pushed creates a spark to light the pilot this button must be push several times to light the pilot. If there is no peizo ignitor a lighter or match must be used to light the pilot. A fireplace lighter is best for this because the flame needs to be close to the pilot to light it. Have the flame source at the pilot before you depress the pilot knob to avoid a build up of gas which can be dangerous. Make sure to follow all instructions on the unit. Hope this helps

The pilot is off and I don't have the manual. How do I start the pilot to turn on the logs

You will need to find the gas valve. Open up the lower section of the fireplace and look foe a small cube of aluminum with a knob on it that says On-Off-Pilot. Turn the knob to the Off position by lining up the word with a small dot or line indicator on the body of the gas valve. Then turn the knob to the Pilot setting. You will know when you are in the correct setting because you will be able to depress the knob into the gas valve body. Hold the knob depressed and click the larger red button. It will snap so don't be startled. Continue to hold the knob in while looking between the logs for a blue flame. If you don't see one, keep snapping the red button. Once you see the flame, continue to hold the knob depressed for 30 seconds or so. Release the knob and make sure the flame stays on. If it does not, repeat nthis procedure and hold down the knob for 45 seconds. If the flame continues to go out, you need a new thermocouple. Once the flame stays lit, rotate the knob to the On setting. The main burner should start within 15 seconds.

Need Instructions to use Fireplace Gas Logs

There should be a set of metal cards attached inside the fireplace.
First you should read everything there.

I know you have to first light the pilot light.
And then there should be a wall switch.

The problem I have currently is that it won't stay lit when the artificial logs are there.

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.

I have a Model 792864B. Before you attempt to light the pilot light - make sure that any wall control switch or remote control for the fireplace is in the off position. Locate the gas supply line. There should be a gas supply valve to turn on the gas supply. The valve is usually painted a different color than the supply line like blue, green or yellow. Open the valve by pivoting the handle to be parallel to the gas line, usually counter-clockwise. When it is closed it is at a 90 degree angle from the supply line. Locate the pilot light assembly - this is the pilot light. There should also be a red or black ignitor button and a black or green valve control knob with the words "on" "off" and "pilot" on it. It may be located inside a black box, mine is marked heatolator, that has a lift off top. Lift off the top of the box. Push in the valve control knob and turn it until the word "pilot" is in line with the arrow (my arrow is red) or indicator line. While pressing and holding in the valve control knob - it presses in about 1/4", press the red or black ignitor button repeatedly (once per second) until the pilot ignites. Once the pilot is lit, continue to hold the valve knob in for about 30 seconds and then slowly release. The pilot should remain lit. If it remains lit, press in and turn the valve control knob to the "on" position. The on/off wall or remote control switch should now light your fireplace. If the pilot doesn't ignite, turn off gas supply valve, wait about 5 minutes and try it again.
