Customer Question

I have a valor 737an natural gas fireplace. I replaced the igniter, thermocouple and thermocouple interrupter. The pilot light will stay on but the main tubes will only stay lit from anywhere between 30sec and 5min. I've tried adjusting the thermo location which seems to help a bit but nothing permanent.

Can you confirm the pilot does not shrink in size when the main burner is on?
