Something weird is happening with our bedroom remote controlled gas fireplace. When I am trying to lit it most of the time it will try to come on and then kill the pilot light. Other times it comes on but then it may turn off (completely with pilot) some time after. Any suggestions what's wrong and most importantly - any repair guy recomendations? I called one company - htey want $250 just for the visit - will keep looking.

It was a rust blockage in the pilot tube that did not let enough gas out for heating the thermocouple. Took a guy couple of hours to figure it out only to clean it with the paper clip eventually.

$750 + the cost of the paperclip?
