Hello, one minute while I get some information together.

Ask Your Own HVAC Question

Often when that happens the pilot assembly is just a little dirty. You should take it out and clean that all out then try it. Let me know if it starts to work.

All I ask is please select the ***5 STAR RATING*** using the link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am credited through the site, tips are appreciated.

Not the whole burner is staying lit. Could that be plugged? How can I clean it out?

Yes it is likely just blocked. You have to remove the logs to get at it.
