In most cases the fix is something as simple and inexpensive as reigniting the pilot flame. Gas fireplace wont stay lit flame goes out pilot. Pilot light problems are common in gas appliances such as water heaters furnaces and gas fireplaces.
The pilot light was still burning so gas was still getting to the unit. I have a gas fire place faux place that runs really well for about 10 minutes after i turn it on but then it goes out licking flames stop and just the pilot remains on. The first time it was fine and normal but today when i tried to use it it would only stay lit for a short time and then the flame would go out.
I have replaced the valve the thermopile and over temp sensor. It stays lit for 5 to 10 minutes and then the entire heater both the flame and the pilot shuts down. If your pilot light stays lit but the fireplace wont start then the problem is likely related to your thermopile a metal probe round and slightly smaller than your pinky finger that converts heat from the burning pilot lights flame into a tiny amount of electricity just enough to open the gas valve when a switch such as a wall.
When i turn it on it starts up normal amounts of flame. Why does my gas fireplace go out after only a few minutes of running.
