Gas fireplace flame goes out pilot stays on. It lights again immediately and again the pilot will stay on but the flame doesnt come on automatically. I turned the switch off then back on it comes back on and then goes out all by itself after another minute or so. I have replaced the valve the thermopile and over temp sensor.
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. Why does my gas fireplace go out after only a few minutes of running. 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.
Ive only used it a couple of times. My gas fireplace stops after a couple of minutes pilot and flame go out. In most cases the fix is something as simple and inexpensive as reigniting the pilot flame.
The pilot light was still burning so gas was still getting to the unit. It stays lit for 5 to 10 minutes and then the entire heater both the flame and the pilot shuts down. My fireplace pilot light stays lit but main burner wont turn on.
When i turn it on it starts up normal amounts of flame. 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. Im a renter in a condo with a gas fireplace.
