We have a heatilator gas fireplace (only 10 years old). It has two wall switches, both of which need to be in the on position to light the fireplace. Normally when i press both switches, it beeps, the pilot lights, stays on for a few seconds and then the flame ignites and takes over. Lately, everything works as normal except for the flame igniting. It does work intermittently. Any ideas of what is wrong? When it doesn't work, the pilot is on and looks as strong as normal. I don't believe it to be a switch issue because the pilot comes on every time and if both switches aren't on, the pilot won't come on.
