    Pilot light hassle on gas insert

    Hi experts,

    I've got a Comfortec by Orrville gas fireplace insert made 5/93... I can't get the pilot light to remain running, even after prolonged warm up, long enough to switch the knob over to the run position. I'm a little tight on cash and would really like to make the little lady happy by getting this thing running without having to call a professional... any ideas? From what I've read I should remove the glass front to prevent pressurization and try again... is this really necessary? Also, if it's a bad thermopile [again, been reading ] how can I tell? TIA

    here's what I've been able to find so far...
