How do I fix the pilot on a CFM Insta-Flame DV34 RN?

I have a CFM INSTA-FLAME DV34 RN. The pilot light will only stay lit as long as I hold in on the button. As soon as I let go the button, the pilot goes out. What is the cause and fix?

Typically, the thermo-couple reaches a certain temperature which sends a signal to the valve body telling it to allow the pilot to stay lit. The easy answer is to replace the thermo-couple. Or, you could just replace the entire pilot assembly to ensure all the parts are new.

SOURCE: Can anyone tell me why my direct vent fireplace flame looks like its in a wind storm. The pilot blows out as a rexult

Looks like too much yellow in the flame. That is normally caused by the mixing control on the gas feed tube being too closed. Trace the tube from the burner .....back toward the gas feed line....until you find the slip ring that controls the amount of oxygen that is mixed with the gas. Open is a small amount and light it. You should see a bit more blue color. If that does not work, continue to vary the adjustment until the flame burns correctly. The pilot should never blow out unless the outside air feed is too large. You can try blocking it a small amount to see if the smaller amount of outside air corrects the problem.

I want a manual for a insta flame Model ZC 36 RN

I have scanned and uploaded the operating and instructions manual for the ZC 36 series fireplaces. This includes the ZC36-RN model you are asking for (which is the natural gas version with a remote on/off switch), as well as the ZC36-MN, ZC36-MP and ZC36-RP variants.

I have an Insta Flame Canadian Fireplace Manufacturing Inc. gas fireplace, installed in 1990. The problem is that when I light the pilot light, it will ignite, but it will not stay lit when the knob is...

sounds as though you need to get the thermocouple(copper wire that sits in the pilot flame) replaced, check first to make sure it is tight at the gas valve end, as they can loosen over time due to expansion and contraction.

We have an older (22 years?) 'Insta-Flame (model HE30 TN) natural gas fireplace insert. The pilot light is out, as we painted to inside of the firebox. The instructions show to 1) turn the dial to 'off'',...

On some gas valves the pilot setting is on the same dial as pilot on and on .on others the pilot light has aseperate button on right side of control dial. If yours has this there will be a cut out on cotrol dial that must be aligned with button to allow it to be depressed to light pilot. If yours has this align control dial cutout with pilot button,depress button and light pilot,hold for about one min. and slowly release,if pilot light stays lit,turn down thermostat and rotate control dial normally to right . There should be arrows or marks on dial and gas valve to line up. If pilot light stays lit turn dial to next position and check to see that pilot is still lit. This should be on position, turn up thermostat and burner should light. If your dial has pilot light setting on it then rotate dial to each position,try to depress dial and when you have right one dial will depress allowing you to light pilot. Follow same procedure as above and you should be in business. Hope this helps.Thank you
