Pilot light not lighting on gas fireplace
I hope someone on here can help me out. I bought a house and have a gas fireplace, I have no idea if it used to work as it was bank owned. It has a switch on the wall and underneath controls.
I cannot get the pilot light to light. The gas control knob is turned horizontal so I know that the gas line is on. If I hold down the pilot knob I can eventually smell gas. When I strike the ignitor button I do see a spark.
But no matter how long I hold it down or how many times I hit the button the pilot will not light. Anyone have any idea what it could be?
