Gas fireplace fires intermittently & pilot goes out

My gas fireplace model g342an Majestic starts intermittently and the pilot light will go out randomly. The wires leading to the heating element are melted (not sure it's related th the problem). The "heat element" is $100 so I don't want to blindly change it. Any idea what else it could be?

I don't know what part you are calling a "heat element" there is no part by that name on the parts list that I found. That unit has a hot surface ignitor which could cause the problem you describe but I also suspect the thermogenerator and thermopile.
