Hi, we moved into a new home a few months ago that came with a Heat n Glo fireplace, model SL-32GDV.

The fireplace runs fine manually however the wall switch fails to control the fireplace, nothing happens when I hit the switch.

The thermopile measures around 370 millivolts and the pilot light looks great.

I am not sure that I have the proper wall switch for the unit. I have attached a pic of the switch . Any other help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried removing the wires from the switch and touching them together?

could it be a switch for a blower fan that comes on once the heat is up to temp? That may take several minutes.
