    Older Heat-n-Glo flame extinguishes after 15-20 minutes.

    I have an older model Heat-n-Glo system Model 6000DVT. It was installed by the builder when I moved in my house back in 93. Sad to admit, I haven't done much with it as far as servicing over the years and that might be catching up to me. Now when I use the remote (mod. AT85P) to turn it on, I hear the click inside the fireplace, but the fire won't ignite. Eventually after 3 or 4 attempts, it will lite, but then go out after 15 minutes or so. I had planned to give it a good clean up to see if that will correct the problem. I have the gas already shut off at the cut-out lever and could use some input on what to inspec and clean. Thanks

    Hmm

    You need to inspect your local resources for qualified service. This is not a DIY site. See Site Rules. Attempting to service this unit could result in fire or explosion to start with.

    Call a pro. Sorry.

    Did a full cleaning and dusting and wiped off the flame sensor. Alls working just fine now. Starts right up with one push of my remote

    Ummmmm, you still do not know definitively what was the cause of your initial problem. There may be an issue still lurking inside that could be dangerous !!! Call someone that specializes in gas fireplace repair !!
    Common sense is NOT common !!!
