Gas Fireplace Comes On With Wall Switch Off
I have a Standard Pilot Ignition fireplace which has not been used for about a year. Just replaced the thermocouple because the flame would intermittently go out.
After replacing the thermocouple the pilot came on as it should but when turning the gas control valve to the on position the fireplace turned on. The wall switch is off so I'm not sure why it is turning on. If I turn the on\off rocker switch off the flame goes out so that switch seems to work.
Could the gas valve be bad.
Thanks in advance for any help
