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.

SOURCE: Heatilator Pilot Issue

Any pilot adjustment would be under a large screw with a flat blade slot in it. There would be a smalled flat blade screw under it. Warning: Too small of a flame and your safety device won't work.

SOURCE: Pilot light won't stay lit

Look for dust and lint. Look for them in places where gas should be freely flowing. I had a similar problem with an Empire Corcho wall-mounted propane ceramic catalyst heater. First it was the pilot light, then the #2 ceramic mantle. After horsing around with the gas lines and pressure regulators and trying to re-aim the pilot, it all turned out to be dust and lint in the gas passages. A little dust bunny in the brass pilot tube gave me a pilot light the shape and color of a banana. One puff of compressed air, and I got back my razor-sharp pilot. And some dust in the chimney of the #2 burner kept it burning blue/yellow and blistering paint off the upper surfaces of the heater. A bit of cleaning with a shop-vac put that right. "Passive" heaters are very much prone to this sort of problem because they rely on convection currents (i.e. LOW velocity) to get the job done. Convection currents are notorious dust collectors, as in COBWEB CITY.

SOURCE: Gas wall heater won't light

You need to bled the line longer and when you get lited hold down for a good minute.When the gas gave out ,there could trash in the line.I would take the line off and blow gas through it undtil you can smell it.

Have two- 6000 glx firplaces,both 4 yrs old. recently one has flame for pilot for about 30 sec then turns off without main flame igniting. Swapped modules with working unit, the wsk-300 box, the wall...


I realize this is an old question but i've put my answer out here in hopes that someone else looking for the same info might have it available.
Kevin,
In my case I've got a heatilator NB4236I and the same parts you've mentioned. I had also come to the idea that the GFVE14 gas module might be the issue. If you open it up you'll see that its a fairly simple solenoid - you can bench test it by taking it off the unit and simply providing power to the red tab and then simply grounding the chassis. In my case the problem didn't turn out to be the gas module - which is fairly unlikely given how simple it is - but rather a high limit switch that pops open if the heat exceeds the limit switch's non adjustable value.
You can easily test to see if the limit switch is the issue by disconnecting all of the other wires from the brown wires of the GM-6KA and basically just short them together (with the power and gas on - and the unit resealed) if it fires up then its almost assuredly the limit switch which you can simply reset. The fact that the heat limit switch blew though could be an indication of an installation problem and may quickly get into a situation that is not DIY.
I have 0 HVAC experience so definitely not an expert fwiw.
