    Lennox EDVPFNM Fireplace - Pilot Won't Stay Lit HELP!!!!!

    Hello I have a Lennox Fireplace MODEL #EDVPFNM. I cannot light the pilot light. I turn the dial on the gas valve to "PILOT", hold it down while striking the ignitor. I can see the spark from the ignitor from it won't light. Any suggestions?

    Thank you in advance!

    When you look at the gas valve do you see any wires coming off t he valve? if so trace the wire back to the assembly by the igniter and if you see that it goes to a thermocoupe then trace the wires back to the gas valve and with a meter check for voltage about 3.5 millivolits. That is the voltage that the thermocouple will put out to keep your insert running. CAn you smell gas when you push the pilot lit button in? Make sure you open a door and get some circulation going.

    Do you have gas?

    Is there a shut off someplace that is off?

    To the OP: we cannot provide step by step detailed troubleshooting as they would violate the Site Rules for DIY advice. We can encourage you to ensure you have gas to the appliance then follow the mfrs. posted lighting instructions. If you are using a push button piezo igniter you should see a blue spark with each click. If not, shut it down and call for service. You may need to remove the glass and some logs to access the pilot. If you are getting a good spark but it just won't light and you're sure you have gas to the appliance then call for service. Try to get a hearth appliance service pro who is authorized to get parts and tech support from Lennox. HTH and sorry we can't be of more detailed advice here.
