Customer: replied 5 years ago.

I do not have a carobon monoxide detector. The pilot is lit. Do I need to turn it off?

 

I'm not sure what photo bucket is, but I've attached pictures here. The pictures are not very clear. I'm not sure how to take a picture of the wiring diagram. I don't have a manual.

Sorry, I run a full time mechanical business and I had to work.
To take glass off there should be screws in between the louvers.
I did a little research and found the company sell mostley in Uk.
The Unit looks old. I suggest replacing it.
I think the unit is vented. If so, if you switch to unvented you will save alot of money on your gas bills.
it looks like the gas valve is not switched to the on postion.
There should be a little indent in the gas valve to indicate the position.
It appears to be on pilot.
Switch to on and it should come on.
To clean gas logs, very carefully remove logs and vaccum all dust and debree with vaccum. Next I blow them out with nitrogen. But you can used compressed air.
You can call you local heating company, any good service tech can repair gas logs.
Last but most important. Carbon monoxide kills many familys every year. It is orderless and you won't know until you are sick or just don't wake up.
Go tonight to lowes and buy a plug in model and put in room with gas logs.
Also if you have gas furnace, you should have one on each floor.
I hope this anwsered your questions.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Thank you for your reply. When you suggest the gas valve is not in the on position, I'm assuming you are referring to the know that has off, pilot and on. There is a red mark that is lined up with the on indicator. I lit the pilot light with the "pilot" indicator in the vertical position. What position are you suggesting is "on"?

 

In addition, in the picture, the round dial on the far right is in the off position. Since the burner unit will not light, I thought it best to keep that in the off position, until it lights.

 

According to my research Hunter was bought by Martin Industries who was later bought by Montessen Hearth. What company in the UK manufactures these? I would like to obtain an owner's manual.

 

Are you also suggesting the gas logs need to be repaired?

 

Expert:  Accuratejoe replied 5 years ago.
Once the pilot lights for 1 minute, turn the dial where the red knob is to on.
Then try to turn the other knob and see if it comes on.
If not post back
