There could be several issues here. First is the pilot is weak. You may have something clogging the pilot oriface, or it could be turned down too low. Second is the thermocouple could be bad. And last, the main control valve could be bad. There are some tests that can tell you which of the last two may be your issue but they generally require a qualified tech.

There's a little screw that adjusts the pilot light. It is usually on the block with all the other valves. Follow the pilot lite supply line to where the screw probably is located.

Help, Im trying to start my parents Vermont casting stove, with a remote. But When I get the pilot lit it wont" stat lit. No matter how long Im holding it. My father is coming home from hospital...


You need to look at the thermocouple, this senses heat and lets the gas valve stay on. Some manufacturers call it a flame generator none the less it is what keeps the gas valve on. Some times you get lucky by cleaning it with steel wool and position it directly over the flame tip where it is hottest. this usually will take care of the pilot problem. Good luck and hope dad is fine.

Pilot light won't light on ventless fireplace


Ventless Gas logs, Vanguard, VS30PR. Propane gas
Pilot light stays lit various times, sometimes for several days then other times for a few minutes. Lights best when temp outside is below freezing. Pilot flame appears to receive too much air. How do you adjust the pilot flame? Is this done using two screws marked A & E? Do you have suggestions?
Thanks,
Ed

Sometimes when you turn a gas heater off for some time, if the source tank has been turned off, the line will bleed the propane and the line will contain mostly air. This is especially true if the supply line is long. In order to light the pilot, you will have to hold the pilot lighting button down for a while (a full minute or longer, depending on the size and length of the supply line) before pure propane arrives at the pilot light jet. You should keep a lighted lighter at the jet so that when the gas arrives, the lighter will light it. After the pilot lights, you will have to keep the button pressed long enough for the thermocouple to get hot enough to set the pilot to stay on. When it is hot enough, you should be able to release the pressed lighting button and the pilot should stay on. If it does, you should be able to light the heater. If the pilot jet never lights, gas is not getting to the regulator. If the pilot will not stay lit after a period of time waiting for it to heat the thermocouple, the thermocouple or the regulator may be bad and need replacement. :-)
