**Looking for some insight/suggestions to address a problem concerning my
propane gas heat and glo fireplace that has a pilot light assembly with both the
thermocouple and thermopile. On on the recommendation for my technician i
replaced my whole pilot light assembly due to a pilot light flame and thermopile
issue. My problem lies with the flame decreasing when I switch from the pilot
mode to the on position. In pilot mode the pilot lights up with no problem and a
very strong flame which engulfs both the thermocouple, as well as, the
thermopile. As i m,ove it over to the on position the flame starts to decrease.
I can move the knob slowly towards the on position enough for the main burner to
engage, but if I move it over enough to fully open up the main valve, the flame
no longer covers the thermocouple and/or thermopile enought to keep the
millivolts needed to properly run the main valve. the reult is a clicking sound
and suht off of the whole system. Also, I notice that the control valve for the
main burner which regulates the flame itself has no impact on the intensity of
the flame. Since it is a brand new pilot light assembly and the millivolts from
thr termopile are strong, I believe the problem lie in the gas valve itself.
Wall switch checks out fine and all the connections seem to be in order. Any
insight would be welcomed. Thanks, Tom
was unable to check pressure due to lack of proper instrument, could it be the
regulator on my propane tank is not working properly, or is it more likely a bad
control valve since I am unable to increase the flame from the main control
