There are a number of reasons that your gas fireplace may require some repairs. Fortunately, most of these issues can be repaired quickly and affordably. One of most common problems people may experience with their fireplace is due to the pilot light orifice, where the flame emerges, getting dirty causing a blockage.
Another common issue is the thermocouple, which is essentially a heat-sensitive device which keeps the pilot gas tube open the entire time that the pilot light is lit. The thermocouple actually generates a low electric current which acts as a signal to the gas valve.
