Check to make sure your pilot orfice is not clogged it will be located at the end of the small tube coming from your gas control valve if its not then while you are trying to light the pilot tap the side of the gas valve (sometims somewhat hard) if it then lights you know you have a bad gas valve

I had a similar problem, here's how I fixed it.
1. Shut off gas.
2. Use 7/16 wrench and unscrew pilot gas line from BOTTOM (beneath the unit). Pull it down so you can see top.
3. Turn gas back on and push in pilot button.. does gas come out? If so, then you're pilot is plugged with dust or spider eggs or something. Continue steps below.. if not, then probably valve problem, get a new valve.
4. Shut off gas.
5. Remove logs. and the rear left support plate to access pilot unit screws
6. Take out pilot unit screws so you can access the pilot stack with your 7/16 wrench. (lift pilot unit slightly for this)
7. Remove the pilot stack.
8. Clean all passage ways. Blow out pilot stack, use a toothpick or paperclip to make sure it is all cleaned out... Make sure the thru hole down below is cleared, and clean and blow out the little cylindrical flow adapter piece.
9. Put it all back together.. Put adapter into place, screw down pilot stack, screw back in pilot unit, screw back in rear support, put logs back into place, push gas line back up into pilot, tighten pilot gas line back into bottom, put glass back on.
10. Light pilot as usual and it might work now.

Vermont Casting Radiance Gas Stove (RUVSOD) NG to Propane (LP)


Unfortunaletly, due to the delicate nature of vent-free appliances, you'll find that most are not field convertable. If the vent free appliance were to lose its efficiency, you would be subjected to high levels of CO, carbon monoxide, and could likely die. Therefore, field conversion is not recommended and in this case, not possible. Vermont Castings does not provide parts to convert and if they did you would be essentially replacing the entire unit short of the outer cast shell. I wish you luck.
