Heatilator Electronic Ignition Natural Gas Fireplace Model GNDC36E

Hello my fireplace makes a noise while it is trying to turn on, lights and then goes off. I have replaced the ignitor and cleaned and reattached the White wire. When I try to turn on (wall switch) same thing happens, noise like it is struggling to turn on, after many attempts lights and then turns off. Can somebody please help me, thank you.

Fireplace lights then shuts off

Hi Tommy,

I'd like to narrow down what you've done and what exactly you've replaced.(Assuming you have electronic Pilot ignition) Did you just replace the ignitor portion of the pilot assembly or the entire pilot assembly? Also, what lights? The pilot assembly only or the pilot assembly and then the burner? We could go in a couple of directions here one is parts of the pilot assembly may not be generating enough millivolts to consistently tell the valve to open and release gas to the burner.

Welcome to the forums.

Yes.... the E stands for electronically ignited pilot.

G. asked some good questions. A typical problem would be a dirty pilot orifice.
