    One of the two wires from the rocker switch that is adjacent to the igniter button has become disconnected and I can't see an obvious place for it to hook up. I am hoping that someone on the list can let me know where this wire connects.
    Thanks in advance.

    If it has a robertshaw milivolt valve is might need to go on the "TH" prong on the valve that doesn't the wire on it already. Never seen that fireplace myself so I cant say for sure. If no one knows that fireplaces on here we could prob figure it out with more info, since they are almost all the same/similar.

    I'm sure it's a robert shaw millivolt valve and the wire that's still connected goes to the TH prong. Just wondering if the loose wire may simply be a ground wire??
    Thanks

    from the rocker switch, you might have two wires coming into it from a wall switch, then two going out. The two going out might go to the valve, one to the TH and one to the TH/TP.

    If its a B-Vent unit, one will go to a high limit switch then back down to the valve, the other wire still goes to the valve. the on/off rocker doesn't usully go to a ground.

    some bvents have a high limit switch that gorunds the th/tp circuit by hooking right to the valve and not in series with the switch.
