When I hold the pilot button down to light pilot on my vent free gas logs I can smell gas. when I push the ignitor, the burner will flare and try to start rather the pilot. this is a Martin Industry's Brand, model vf 36.
This started right after I took the pilot off to clean using compressed air. before this, the burner seemed slow to start when turned on and I could smell gas just as it would light.
