LHP gas fireplace (model VF4-CMN) goes out when going from Pilot to On

The gas dial has three settings: Off, Pilot, and On.

First light of the year. When it's on Pilot I can use one of those point and click lighters with the long arm to light the pilot light. The pilot light stays on but when I push the dial in and turn it to On, the pilot goes off and the process is repeated.

Input Rating - Max: 25,000
Input Rating - Min: 19,500
Manifold Supply Pressure: 5
Min Supply Pressure: 6
Max Supply Pressure: 10.5

Any ideas?

The pilot light is fairly important to proper operation. A pilot flame this is not full sized will not heat the thermopile and the thermocouple. In the following manual... the last four pages have specific things to check on your fireplace.
