Blew out pilot light for gas fireplace

Hi all,

I accidentally blew out the pilot light for my gas fireplace without knowing what it was. Is this an issue? Will the gas keep coming out or will it stop?

No. As soon as the thermocouple recognizes no heat it will shut off the gas flow.

level 2

This is true for most appliances, but not all. My cooking stove had 2 pilots that were always on, if they blew out the house began to smell like gas, wife even called the gas co one time thinking we had a leak. Not an old stove either, just cheap.

Most appliances will turn the gas flow off, but not all. If you are concerned, call your gas company. They can send someone out to relight the pilot or show you how.
