Question about Heaters

1 Answer

My remote won't start the fire in my vent free fire place.

It's unit FRC 0.584.004. FCC ID is: QFA-FRC584001. It goes with a DESA heating unit (vent free fire place).

    Not only does my remote not start the fire place, but now the fire place shuts off after only burning for a few minutes. So the manual part isn't working properly, either. Very frustrating!

    My heater did the same thing. The shutoff problem was fixed by cleaning the unit. I pulled all the logs out and blew everything out with compressed air (air compressor with an attachment). The unit works fine except for the remote not working.

    I'm having the same problem, remote control isn't working. Fireplace will work with the manual switch.

Mine did the same thing. What happens is when the batteries die and the remote sits, the remote loses its address. I found this link to the remote manual online. You have to locate your receiver in the fireplace insert. On the receiver there is some dip switch settings. Open up the link below and go to the appendix at the bottom and find your address of the receiver, mine was 005. Go to your remote and power on. Hit the up arrow until you are at the timer. Now hit the left arrow on your remote 10 times, this will diplay the address of the remote, mine was 000, change this number to match your address of the receiver by hitting the up arrow on the remote, I changed mine to 005. Now hit the left arrow again and this will take you out of programming. Power on your remote and should work, enjoy.

I PURCHASED A DESA RADIANT HEATER AT A GARAGE SALE, IT WORKS BUT IS IT VENTLESS AND IT IS A MODEL 0630545


I would really like to help you determine what you have. However, the model number you listed is not a DESA model number. I think you may have listed the Serial Number instead. DESA/Vanguard/Comfort Glow wall heater model numbers start with 2 to 3 letters then 4 to 5 numbers.

However, to visually tell if it's Vent-free (Vent-less) look for a round hole for a vent pipe connection and/or look at the manufacture's data plate on the side or rear of the heater. It will tell you whether it's Vented or Vent-free. If it doesn't have a 3' round hole for a vent pipe, it's Vent-free.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Pilot lights but when ignition pops back up the flame goes out


will either be the unitrol control box or the thermocouple, when you push down you are holding two magnets together and waiting for a small charge to be created from the probe in the flame , if this is not working you have no charge and the magnets won;t stick to allow the valve to open, change the thermo and see if that works first, its way cheaper than a new controler
