Gas Logs

Pilot light goes out when I release the button to turn on logs.

I have vacuumed the area around the pilot light.

I have inserted a wire approximately two or three inches into the line to clear the line.

there's a lot of safety issues with these so you should have a certified fireplace tech look at it...the thermacouple safety isn't sensing enough heat from pilot flame for whatever reason that's why it's going out..it may be just a dirty pilot but a tech can make sure it's at least safe especialy if it's non-vented type.
