    Well I figured it out!!!!!! this is for my fireplace so yours may be different.

    Make sure all batteries are new and contacting good.

    Trun on Remote

    use the up-dn arrows and go to Timer.

    Push the - (minus) button ten times OR until the screen goes blank.

    Usin the UP-DN button set the code to 005. ( for DESA FirePlace) you may have to find the right code for your receiver.

    Puch the - (minus) button once more.

    Test it out to see if it works with your receiver.

    Note : my receiver dip pins are set 1 and 3 up all others down.

    Hope it works for you.

    God Bless!!!

    Also to change from C% to F% do the same except push the + (plus) button once. Check the display to see if it changed. then press the - (minus) button once.

    I just had the exact same problem with my SIT FRC 0.584.004 fireplace unit. I was dead in the water. It would not turn on. It would not turn down. I replaced the battery and it beeped once, but would not do anything except work in manual, but nothing in auto, until I did exactly what Talons06 stated and it started working - Immediately! I cannot believe it. I wish I had the entire instruction set. How in the world did Talons06 figure this out, I cannot imagine. My fireplace is working now. Did he have access to some sort of secret codes? Sure proud Talons shared, but would love to know more about my unit. I got this when I bought my house, but had no instructions on this rascal. How do the other modes work? Sure would like to know more about it. Thanks for sharing.

I found another answer bundled with a replacement remote I was going to order that rejuvenated the old unit so I didn't have to replace it. The instructions are: The 0.584.004 Remote Transmitter Advanced remote control system for both direct vent and vent-free fireplace, gas logs and other hearth products.

The 0.584.004 Remote Transmitter is designed to work together with the 820 NOVA mV multi functional control gas valve and the stepping motor conversion kit as well as the 829 NOVA mV Gas Control Valve.
Remote on Frequency 005
Turn Remote on then scroll down to the Timer:
Press the Minus button - 10 are now in the frequency section.
Now use your up and down keys to get frequency 005
NOTE: The + Key will change your temp from C to attention.
Press Minus- again to exit and your remote is now set.
This 0.584.004 will replace the following transmitters by SIT Controls
FRC 0.584.004, FRC-0.584.004, FRC0584004
QFA-FRC584001,QFAFRC-584.001,FCC ID: QFA-FRC584001T

This is the link.

Gas ventless fireplace remote will not work have inserted new batteries in both fireplace and remote but fireplace not recognizing remote

Every time the batteries are changed in the receiver and transmitter the transmitter has to be "re-learned" to the receiver. To do this locate the "learn" button which will look like a tiny hole so you have to stick the end of a pin or a pen in the hole to press the button. Hold the button down until it beeps at you 5 times and release. press the button again and release and then press Any button on the transmitter.
Once the receiver is set into its "learn" function it does not matter what button is pressed on the transmitter because the next signal the receiver picks up will be the frequency it is attached-to.
In order to change the transmitter simply hold the learn button down until it beeps 5 times again which tells us it has wiped out its memory. Then press, release and press the transmitter.

Fireplace remote control no longer works correctly

To re-sync your Honeywell 8220 transmitter to the valve: Turn the Local/Remote switch on your valve to Local. Then switch it back to Remote. Within 10 seconds of switching it to Remote, you need to press the Flame button on your transmitter. This will re-sync your transmitter to the receiver in the valve. Replacement transmitters and valves are no longer available for this system, they were discontinued by Honeywell and they are completely out of stock. Monessen Hearth Systems (now owns Majestic, Vermont, etc) has a retrofit kit with a new valve, pilot assy, and remote for these old RF units. (expensive, but cheaper than a new fireplace). FYI, aftermarket remotes are NOT compatible with this Honeywell system.

I have a Vermont Castings gas fireplace and a honeywell remote control. Recently the control developed an issue where it will not shut the fireplace off. I have to do it manually. It still turns it on...

It could be that your transmitter is bad. You may want to try to re-sync the remote to the fireplace. Slide the Remote/Local switch on your valve from remote to local, then back to remote. Within 10 seconds press the flame button on your transmitter. This will establish a new frequency connection between your transmitter and valve. Good luck!

Skytech 1410 fireplace remote (8 yrs. old) has stopped working. Replaced batteries in the transmitter. The red light lights up when

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.

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.

I have a Skytech 1001 TH-A thermo remote. Everything was hooked up correctly, but the remote continues not to work. When I turn the remote off, the fireplace comes on and vice versa.

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.
