Question about Leisure HOMEPRIDE Electric Fireplace Heater w/ Remote
You may have a few sensors, one may be a thermopile that energizes the pilot. It is a very thin but long bulb located in the pilot flame. Then you may have something called a thermopile which is also located in the pilot flame that energizes the main gas valve. It is a larger diameter bulb and will have metal wrapped wireg going to the gas valve. If the pilot stays on but the flame goes out under the logs, change your thermopile and look for a bad connection at the gas valve or switch. If both the main burner and the pilot goes out you may have a gas valve problem or a plugged vent pipe. If the flame just disappears it is most likely a gas valve. If the flame changes colors and lifts from the burner, that is a sign of a plugged vent. Good luck.

Therinnaiguy - Thanks for the response and I have a follow up comment adn question.
I'm having a similar problem with a Heat'n'Glo fireplace in a new house I just bought. Fireplace lights but goes out after 10-15 seconds .. and yes I think on mine the flames do go all blue and lift up as it extinguishes from right to left.
My fireplace has the Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) so there is no pilot light. Besides the igniter connecting to the DSI module below, there are not any other sensors connected (unless there well hidden or one is wrapped in the igniter).
The LED on the DSI module blinks fast when turned on, which indicated "Normal Operation. Call for Heat." Before all the flames go out I can hear the igniter try to relight a few more times.
Any additional thougths on the problems? What should I do to ensure that the vents are not plugged or anything?

Even though its electronic ignition (remote) it still lights a pilot we sell heat n glo's and i service all models never seen one with out a pilot, and the pilot usualy lights first to light the fire and remains a light to send fire signal to thermocouple interrupter block (which is at back of valve a brass coupling nut that has two wire goin into it), and is usually lighting when that beeping sound is going then when that stops you here the valve opens and flames light up so i would firstly check the thermocouple interrupter block and pilot assembly then maybe you're valve or module box, also if you are looking at this heater there is a manual to tell you what parts are in heater which i think you should read first considering its a gas heater you shouldn't be looking at it if you don't know about the pilot which always goes while fire on!
