We have 2 propane fueled fireplaces inserts and are having a problem with one of them. I am trying to determine whether the problem is user error or if I need to have a repairman take a look at it.

I’m having a problem with the pilot light staying lit on one fireplace insert. I can light the pilot light and it will stay lit forever and if I turn the fireplace on it will run forever.

The problem comes in when I turn the fireplace off. The pilot light flame pulls away from the thermo-couple and goes out. You can actually see the pilot light flame pull forward and away from the thermo-couple. I have tried open and close the damper but this seems to have very little effect.

Can anyone give me an idea of what the problem maybe and steps to solve the problem?

Thank you.

The orifice needs cleaning.
