Fireplace Pilot Lighting Instructions

valve assembly - valve in ON position 2.  Open valve assembly by turning it parallel to gas line.

pilot assembly 3.  Locate pilot assembly (usually in bottom of box or in back of logs)

igniter switch and button 4.  Locate igniter switch (usually red or black). Push igniter button and look for blue spark at pilot assembly

hold in the valve control knob and press the igniter button6.  While holding the valve control knob in (in the pilot position it should go inward a 1/4") press the igniter button repeatedly until the pilot ignites.

Once the pilot is lit, continue to hold valve knob in for 30 seconds then release.

turn valve to ON position7.  Once pilot light is lit, turn the valve to the on position. If pilot goes out, start back with number 1 and go through lighting procedure again. If this fails, call Builders Fireplace for further instructions.
