Question about Heating & Cooling
I don't know its age, but > 15 years. It has both a manual stitch on the back and a thermostat for on/ off. Neither the switch nor the thermostat will allow it to light. Pilot is on and fine. No gas smell. Suggestions.
Transformer blown, bad control board,but make sure breaker is not tripped and door switch on heater is working.

SOURCE: hi. i have a vermont
check to make sure your pilot orfice is not clogged it will be located at the end of the small tube coming from your gas control valve if its not then while you are trying to light the pilot tap the side of the gas valve (sometims somewhat hard) if it then lights you know you have a bad gas valve

We had this problem and struggled with it for over a year. We finally hired someone to come in and service the stove he cleaned everything and blew a piece of crud from the pilot line. NO Problem for 2 years since.
He told me the pilot light should look strong pointed like a pencil not curved up like a candle. He removed the pilot and disassembleed the line and used compressed air.

Unfortunately, as you discovered, there are no gas conversion for your Vent-free gas log stove. There are none available for any Vent-free supplemental gas heating product. And despite what others may tell you, there's more to the conversion, than just changing the pilot orifice. By the time you bought all the parts to safely do it, it wold have cost you more than you would want to spend. The bottom line is, it can not be done safely. And any attempts to convert and operate it, puts all the liability on you if something where to go wrong.
I wish I had better news for you. But, it's always best to err on the side of caution and safety, when dealing with gas fired products.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
