    Hi, first time poster. I have a Jotul 3 gas stove. The pilot works fine but it won't light fire -- unless!!!! I take glass off, then it will light, at which point I put the glass back on. Clearly, this is not a great routine. Any thoughts?

    Have you taken any milliVolt readings on the pilot?
    Is there a limit switch wired into then gas valve of this unit?

    Does the glass removal process involve buckles which jar the unit? If so it could be that your valve is sticking, and just coming unstuck.

    Can you give a more clear and detailed step by step explanation of your "remove the glass" lighting process?

    Ie do you turn it on, then remove the glass?

    Does vice versa work?

    When the glass is off can you freely turn it off and on again without issue?
