Gas fireplace pilot light out. This makes the fireplace easy to start when its cold outside but when it warms up its a good idea to shut off the pilot to conserve gas. This will release gas into the fireplace causing the pilot light to ignite. I relight the pilot light and the same thing happens after a few minutes of turning the flame on.
I had a service man come out and he fiddled with it for a couple of hours. This video is designed to answer basic questions regarding problems with the pilot light in a gas fireplace. When the pilot light goes out it does not leak carbon monoxide gas.
I just had it serviced getting the themro couple replaced and it was working yesterday went to switch it on this morning and it wouldnt ignite the pilot light is on. However if the light goes out frequently there could be other issues. Most gas fireplaces have a standing pilot light which is a small flame that burns even when you arent using the fireplace.
Then after about 4 minutes both the fireplace flame and the pilot light kick off. Be prepared to move back quickly in case the fire ignites stray gas particles and flares out into the immediate surrounding area. Some of the possible serious reasons for pilot lights to go out include loose or broken gas valves thermocouples or heat exchangers faulty venting low gas pressure or high winds.
