I just moved into a new house I went to turn on the gas for the fireplace using the key yet I still can't light the fireplace. There's nothing showing me where to turn on the gas flow to the hearthmaster gas fire place. We have a natural gas oven which is working fine. Any ideas?

  • Might it be controlled by a wall thermostat? – Jimmy Fix-it Nov 23 '15 at 1:13

There should be a thermocouple and gas valve - the thermocouple senses when the fire goes out and turns the gas off. Probably a pilot lite also. Check for a diagram online, here is a link to a youtube example:
