Pilot valve and thermocouple issues (gas fireplace)

295 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  roughneck
Hi there,

I have a gas fireplace that won’t light. I can light the pilot but can’t turn the valve to the on position. What’s odd is that when the valve is set off, and there’s no flame, I am able to turn the valve to the on position (with no flame).

Any ideas what it could be?

I agree with you, replace or clean the thermopile/thermocouple. They are cheap. See if that helps.
