Gas Fireplace Won't Light

Posted by nikkademus (My Page) on

I have a Vermont Casting gas fireplace. I don't know what model it is or how old, it was here when we bought the house 1 year ago. We've been using the fireplace daily since mid-November with the pilot always lit. When I checked it yesterday the pilot was off and I could not get the fireplace to light. When the pilot light switch is not on I can see a spark being made by the ignition. When the pilot light switch is pushed down I can hear the gas and smell it, but the ignition won't make a spark. Any suggestions?

If you go to the first page of the Fireplaces forum, where the titles of the posts are listed, you can scroll down and find a search box. Do a search on "pilot" and start reading. You should find something.
