I have 2 gas fireplace units doing the same thing.(mine and a friends) The pilot lights fine and stays lit when releasing the knob. When you turn it to on position it goes out. I have tryed leaving it burning in pilot position for a while then turning it to on with same result.
Any ideas?

RE: pilot goes on when turner to on position

One possibility is that you have a gas supply problem. With the small load of the pilot light, everything works fine. Turn of the main burner and an inadequate gas supply causes the pressure to drop, allowing the pilot to go out.
