    Heat-n-Glo Tiara II

    We have a heat n glo tiara 2 that hasn’t had any issues in the past. Yesterday I noticed the pilot light was staying on instead of completely shutting off when not running.

    Lopi Berkshire Pilot Assembly (250-00412)

    After about 20 years it looks like my pilot assembly needs to be replaced. I've got the part number from Travis for NG as 250-00412. Looks like there are a few companies that make replacements for this but wondering if there's any difference other than the $50 ;-)

    Weird buzzing noise after pilot upgrade - Insta-Flame DV34

    Hello everyone! First-time poster here with very limited knowledge. We have a direct vent natural gas fireplace in our new house (Insta-Flame model DV34) that is about 30 years old. It wasn’t really operational when we moved in - barely any flame - wasn’t cleaned and serviced in years. We...

    Monessen NB24 Log Set - Pilot will not light

    I have a Monessen NB24 logset and the pilot light will not light after trying to purge the air out of the line for a long time (We have tried doing it probably 10 times and each time for 10 minutes or more). After doing some reading I discovered that the pilot assembly may need to be replaced...
