Various models differ slightly from one another, but the concept is very much the same. First locate on the unit where the pilot knob is (it should say “OFF”, “ON”, and “PILOT”). There is also an ignitor button under there (it should be close to the pilot knob). Turn the pilot knob from “OFF” position to “PILOT” position (you might have to push in on the knob a little to get it to turn). While holding the knob in, push the ignitor button until the pilot lights. Continue to hold the knob in for about 60 seconds after ignition, then release slowly. If the pilot stays lit, push in the pilot knob and turn it to the “ON” position. Your fireplace is now set to burn. For any questions please refer to the owners manual.
