I can not lit the pilot

I turned off my fireplace in this summer, and now I want to turn on it, but I could not re-lit the pilot following the instruction (put the pilot positiion, and depress it, and push buton button ignitor several times). And i even asked a technisin to look at it, and found that there was no gas fellowing to pilot, and told me he could not solve the problem. Could anyone make suggestion to solve this problem?

It sounds like air in the pilot tube its a very small hole in the pilot and takes ages to come through undo
the pilot tube at the gas valve and see if you have gas coming while depressing the the knob

How do we fix a remote control for a Direct Vent Fireplace?


check to see if you have a resettable dip swith in the venting system, if you do have one, press it once, it should then come on. also make sure the gas valve is in the on position and not just in the pilot position,. Also after being off all summer season, sometimes a slitgh tap on the gas control is all it needs to dislodge the magnetic pilot plunger.

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.

Once I get the pilot light lit , hold for 30 seconds, and the let the knob out to turn to low or high, the pilot light won't stay lit.


From what you're describing, either the Thermocouple needs cleaning or it needs replacing, However, these are not easy units to work on for a Do it your-selfer. so I would recommend taking it in to a pro who can get the part if necessary and replace it if necessary. Most independent hearth stores that sell and service gas logs and gas fireplaces can help you.

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.
