My ventless gas fireplace pilot light keeps going out. It seems

Resolved Question:

My ventless gas fireplace pilot light keeps going out. It seems to be out of reach of the flame, so it's understandable. The thermocouple is welded to place, that will not adjust, neither is the flame adjustable. What could be causing the pilot to go out? And what could I do?

HiCustomerbr />It sounds like your pilot burner orifice is dirty. Blowing into it won't help. You need to dismantle the pilot burner then run a very fine wire through the orifice opening. You need to do this even if you can see daylight through the orifice hole.
