Question about Skytech 1001-A Fireplace Remote Control On/Off
It may need to be re-synchronized:
• Make sure the receiver's slide switch is in the REMOTE position.
• Press and release the LEARN button on the receiver.
• When you hear the "Beep", press and hold the ON or OFF button for about 2 seconds on the transmitter.
• You will then hear a series of beeps that indicate that your new transmitter has been accepted by the receiver.
• If you press the LEARN button on the receiver and you hear no beeps, the receiver is unable to retain any more transmitter codes
(make sure the transmitter battery is properly installed and fully charged).
• To delete all of the transmitter codes on your receiver, press and hold the LEARN button for 10 seconds. Then you will hear a
series of beeps, indicating that the receiver's memory has been cleared.
It could also be dead after 8 years. A new unit can be purchased here: Skytech Remotes. I would even suggest on of the new styles with a built in timer or thermostat.

Rhonda, if you have the On/Off/Flame Height Remote Control ... from what you have described (it's working in reverse) someone has wired it backwards to the control valve. With this particular remote, there is a positive and a negative. Reverse the wires that are connected to the gas control valve (at the control valve. Not on the Black Remote Box) and everything should be fine. If you need more help contact Skytech Technical Service @ 888-672-8929 Monday - Friday. They are great people to work with.

You have to get the remote and transceiver to talk to each other. Remove all the batteries and wait a couple of minutes
before replaceing them. Place the transceiver in the REMOTE
position, press and hold down the LEARN button, and then
press the MODE button on the remote control. A change in the
beep tone will be heard and you have MARRIED the two devices. Should solve the problem.

If you changed the batteries in the receiver (the black box in the fireplace). You should also change the 2-batteries in the hand-held remote. This may sound stupid, but it's not ... be sure all the batteries in the receiver (black box) are all facing the proper direction. Believe me, it's easy to get one turned the wrong direction. Also, make sure that the slide switch is in fact in the remote position. It can be finicky at times. Also, check to make sure that the two wires are still connected firmly at the gas fireplace Control Valve and in the receiver.
is in the ON or OFF position. Program the remote receiver to LEARN a new security code by pushing in the LEARN button on the top of the
remote receiver and then pressing the MODE button on the transmitter. A change in the beeping pattern, at the receiver, indicates the
transmitter's code has been programmed into the receiver.
There's a lot to check out and do, but that's how you trouble shoot these remotes.
