I have an American Flame gas fireplace which has worked fine for a couple years and now doesn't light. No pilot. This unit is a AF-4004 gas controller, AF-4004-MOD1 remote module and a Skytech remote. When I ask it to light, it beeps, nothing happens, then it starts beeping continuously. I think it is beeping because the pilot is out.

I have put fresh batteries in the remote module. Confirmed gas is on. Sprayed air in pilot. Other ideas? Is there a manual way to light the pilot? The box has no pilot controls.
