Simply Build It

Check the correct thermocouple has been fitted.

I'm sure the legend fire has a oxy-pilot, this could be blocked with dust. But more likely to be abit soot as the legend's tend to form quite abit soot on the pilot assembly.

Check the flame is over the thermocouple, if the oxy pilot is blocked the pilot flame will be yellow and lifting away from the thermocouple.
