How to Troubleshoot a Gas Fireplace

Here are some steps to take if your gas fireplace is on the fritz.

*If you have electronic ignition, ALWAYS CHECK BATTERIES IN REMOTE AND IN THE FIREPLACE. 

Make Sure the Gas Is On

Double-check that the gas is actually on if your gas fireplace isn’t working correctly. Without any gas, your fireplace won’t be able to light. Check the main gas valve to see if the gas is fully operational.

Purge the Air Out of the Pilot Tubing

If the gas is on and the pilot hasn’t been lit in a couple of months, you might need to purge the air out of the pilot tubing. To do this, hold the pilot button down for about one to three minutes while the air bleeds out. If the pilot is lighting, but not staying lit, it could indicate that you have a worn-out thermocouple.

Check the Spark Igniter

If gas is coming out of the pilot but it still won’t light, the spark igniter could be the problem. You should clear out any debris between the igniter and the thermocouple. Blowing compressed air into the pilot area, waiting a couple of minutes, then trying again could help to fix the problem.
