    Propane Gas Log Fireplace Insert Flame Goes Out
    While my Propane Gas Log Fireplace Insert is on for about 30 minutes it all of a sudden makes a pop sound and goes out, both the piot and fireplace flame go out together. Can some one advise me what I need to do? It seems like maybe some adjustment is needed or maybe the oriface needs to be cleaned.:confused::confused::confused:

    The vent may be obstructed, leading to downdrafts which won't allow the flame to stay lit, or it might have a thermostat that shuts it off if a hi temp is reached. You could try cleaning out each of the little gas jets with a paperclip or wire when it's off, there could be cobwebs or dirt blocking them. Otherwise call a HVAC tech. I would not monkey around with it

    Sounds like the pop you hear is the valve shutting off by high temp switch. These are ussualy located @ or around the flue collar. They come either manually reset or automatic. Normal Closed system opens when high temp is reached. Possibly cause obstruction, or faulty switch
