That insert must have a milli-volt gas valve. The safety feature used on them type valves is a Thermophile/generator. When these generators get weak they will hold the pilot but when called upon to operate the gas valve solenoid they simply die. Replace the pilot generator.

    Now IF your insert is an ODS system (I have no way of knowing exactly
    where to look for that model number by the way) If the insert uses the
    popular Oxygen Depletion System safety then your pilot is dusty inside.
    The oxygen is lowered inside the dusty pilot safety and so it does it's
    job and shuts down like it's supposed to. What I do is flush out the
    pilot with a little rust buster. Then wait till that drys. This keeps
    from messing with the pilot flap and damaging the pilot. This page
    shows where to clean and includes a video of how it works

Fireplace with Eurosit gas valve. Pilot is lit but fireplace only kicks on if an ice pack is applied to the probe.


icing at the jet indicates that there is liquid gas at that point and as it tries to boil off into gas the surrounding humidity is freezing the hole (jet)
get a gas appliance fitter in to check the regulator and the system for faults and go from there

Gas fire wont stay lit


The thermostat probably reached the set temp, but maybe the pilot lite blew out. Or the control needs to be replaced.

Fryer does not shut off when temp .is reached


I assume it is a gas model. There are 2 thermostats. One is adjustable, you set your temp, it sounds like it has gone bad.. The second thermostat is the high limit thermostat. When it reaches 450 degrees F, it will shut down the pilot and main flame to prevent a grease fire. It may be possible that someone has hooked the thermostat up wrong. Next time you fire it up, disconnect one of the thermostat wires that has the temperature knob. If the flame goes out, the thermostat is bad,

Pilot going out when thermostat turned on


This is caused by the safty bypass feature on the gas valve. You will need to replace the gas valve. This problem is a safty interlock built into the valve when it fails it will not let the main valve portion fire.
