I could not get the pilot to stay lit when releasing the ignite button. Noticed output reading was very low on thermopiles. I replaced with two new 750mw thermopiles and tested their output to over 500mw in open circuit. Connected to gas valve and both TP went to very low Mw reading and still pilot died when I came off the start button. Surmise the gas valve is bad? I thought I saw on one of the retired postings that someone was troublehooting/repairing the gas valve. Receiver and remote appear healthy as the On/Off/Auto, motor speeds responds and temp shows on remote screen. Does Fingerlakes Fireplace guy mess with these or anyone know where I might be doing wrong?
