Before getting started, your fireplace manual should have these instructions located below the bottom louver. Also you can check online for your manufacturers lighting instructions.

These steps are to help guide you by following manufacturers instructions.

2. Position the knob to match the small indicator with the word pilot.

(Indicator can be a little arrow or teardrop painted white, red or not painted at all.

3. Now you should be able to press in the knob with one thumb and with your other hand located and press the ignitor while continuing to hold down the pilot knob.

4. Establish a pilot flame.

7. Turn gas knob, currently set on PILOT, to the ON position and wait 5 mins in order for the unit to energize before trying to turn on the fireplace.

8. Go make yourself a coffee, not too much sugar otherwise weight gain may happen.
