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.

SOURCE: skytech model no. sky-3001 changed batteries in

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.

SOURCE: receiver was beeping all the

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.

  • Now, if all of that doesn't solve your problem, the receiver may have lost it's code..
When matching security codes, be sure slide button on the receiver is in the REMOTE position; the code will NOT "LEARN" if the slide switch
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.

Pilot light 5301


The Skytech 5301 does not control your pilot light. That is a function of your fireplace's valve. Complete instructions for lighting your pilot can be found in the owner's manual of your fireplace, or at the brand's website.
The 5301 should not need to be reset in any way. Once your pilot is re-lit it will operate normally.
If you need a new copy of the 5301 manual, it can be found at the bottom of the product page here: Skytech 5301 fireplace remote.

Skytech 3301 thermo


Check to make sure your thermostat is set at a temperature that will turn the fireplace "on".
Double-check what your "swing" temp settings are set at, as this may effect how quickly the unit shuts off because it thinks it's too close to the target temperature.


If needed:Skytech's Tech Support number is 1-888-672-8929They are available Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm EST.


If your remote needs to be replaced, the 3301 is available here:
Skytech 3301 Fireplace Remote
If you are looking to replace it, I would also highly recommend looking at Skytech's new 3301P2 remote. It adds a programmable thermostat, and a much nicer back-lit LCD screen. This unit is available here:

Skytech receiver batteries keep going dead


Joe,

The heat from the fireplace can have an adverse effect on the life of the batteries. Sometimes simply re-positioning the receiver to a cooler location under the firebox and/or adding a heat-shield can improve battery performance with the Skytech remote receivers.
As a test, you could even place the receiver outside the fireplace for a period of time to gauge the effect of heat on the unit.


According to the owner's manual for the Skytech 3301 Thermostat Remote:


"For REMOTE RECEIVERS that operate on BATTERY POWER, these heat conditions can cause batteries to discharge when temperatures exceed 115 degrees F. Studies show that alkaline batteries, when exposed to a constant temperature of 120 degrees F, can lose up to 50% of their operating power. When the battery cools down, it will partially recharge itself, but constant heating and cooling will reduce the battery's normal life expectancy."

Hope this helps!

How do I sinc my fireplace remote ecs1001-a two button to fireplace


Each transmitter uses a unique security code. It will be necessary to press the LEARN button on the receiver to accept the transmitter security code upon initial use, if batteries are replaced, or if a replacement transmitter is purchased from your dealer or the
factory. In order for the receiver to accept the transmitter security code, be sure the slide button on the receiver is in the REMOTE
position; the receiver will not LEARN if the slide switch is in the ON or OFF position. The LEARN button in located on the front face
of the receiver; inside the small hole labeled LEARN. Using a small screwdriver or end of a paperclip gently press and release
the black LEARN button inside the hole. When you release the LEARN button the receiver will emit an audible "beep". After the
receiver emits the beep press ANY transmitter button and release. The receiver will emit several beeps indicating that the transmitter's code has been accepted into the receiver.

Cant program remote


I'm going to assume you are meaning that you are unable to set the "target temperature" for the thermostat?


This remote control system can be thermostatically controlled when the transmitter is in the THERMO mode (THERMO must be displayed on the screen). To set the DESIRED room temperature, press the MODE button to place the transmitter into THERMO mode, then press the UP or DOWN button to select the desired
room temperature. The highest SET temperature is 99 degrees Fahrenheit (32 degrees Celsius).

The remote no longers turns on the fireplace.


  • Is your valve turned "on" and not in the "pilot" mode?
  • If your valve is in the "on" position, try turning the Skytech receiver's switch to "on" instead of remote.
  • If the fireplace ignites when the receiver is "on" then the remote needs to be re-synchronized.
  • If the fireplace valve is "on", the remote's receiver is in the "on" position, and the fireplace will not light, then you most likely have a bad thermopile in your fireplace and need service.

Fireplace sparkignitor not activating All of sudden yesterday the remote would not initiate the fireplace spark igniter. First thing I did was replace the D batteries in the FP unit with tested good batteries. That did not resolve the problem when it had in the past couple of months. I replaced the 13v battery in the 1001 remote even though the light on the remote was strong. I went back to the FP D battery case and slipped a battery out to check connection and slipped back in. Just putting the battery back in initiated the igniter. I tested the remote see if would turn off the FP and it would not. So at bed time to turn off the fire I just pulled out one D battery. This morning I decided to trouble shoot the problem. First I slipped one D battery I removed last night back into the holder expecting the igniter to activate like it did yesterday. It did not. I started looking around at the other black box wired to the same place the pair D battery box is attached. I saw a big arrow and slipped the cover off. Low and behold was full four AA batteries I never knew existed. I replaced those four AA batteries correctly inserted and verified good batteries. Watched a Skytech 1001 "learn" button video and followed those instructions since I pulled the four AA batteries out and replaced them. I tried the remote and that did not work. Summary: with new batteries in the remote and both battery cages at the FP (one holding two D and the other holds four AA> I have reached the end of my troubleshooting expertise. Guess it could be the spark igniter but I go back to the strange event of me just popping out one of the NEW D batteries and popping it in and the igniter initiated. And the only way I could turn off FP other then turning off the gas was to pull one D battery. I did this morning spot the on/off switch on a housing that the two battery cages are connected to. Guess if I had known that was there I could have turned that switch off last night instead of popping out one D battery to kill the fire maybe would not have the problem tis morning. Guess it did not like that battery out over night. I did test it couple times yesterday by slipping one D battery out and back in and the fire would die and reignite each time I tested. Was about three times so I expected it to behave same way this morning. it did not. What is my next step? HELP, HELP.
