Common Reasons You May Need Gas Fireplace Repair

Gas fireplaces are not unbreakable. Mishaps and quirks come with owning any kind of appliance. When you find that your fireplace isn’t working, there could be a number of reasons why. Here are some of the most common reasons:

  • Pilot light is out. Like many gas appliances, your gas fireplace is run by a pilot light. If the fireplace won’t ignite, your pilot light may have gone out. This may be an easy fix, and something you can repair on your own. Open the vent to see if the flame is lit or not. If it is not lit, use a lighter to re-light it and see if the problem is fixed. If the pilot light is lit but won’t stay on, then you’ll need professional gas fireplace repair.
  • Thermocouple problems. Most gas fireplaces have a thermocouple, a small metal rod intersecting the gas valve and the pilot light. This senses the temperature and uses electricity to light the gas. If the thermocouple isn’t perfectly positioned and connected, it can cause problems. Since it’s fairly small, it’s easy to have it move out of position. A professional fireplace repairman can assist you with this issue.
  • Thermopile problems. The thermopile is a sensor responsible for generating voltage. Some newer electronic gas furnaces have thermopiles instead of thermocouples, which can also be known as gas fireplace generators or millivolt generators. If you suspect this is the problem, you may wish to have a professional check it out, because replacing the thermopile is a fairly complex process.

If you’ve ruled out problems you can fix on your own, and you suspect you have one of these issues, the James A. Wheat & Sons team is here to help. As part of our comprehensive services for gas fireplaces, we are pleased to offer gas fireplace repair.
