Thanks Diana for the Question,
the info you are looking for , sorry to say, should be in the service area of the fireplace, yes it means back down on your knees, but if I were you I would have a friend, or someone a little younger take a look for ya, as far as the wall switch, it could be one of three things, either the switch has been disconnected, or there should be a switch near to were you have to manually lite the unit that needs turned in the opposite direction, or the wall switch has to much resistance to let the small amount of voltage necessary to operate the fireplace, Heat and Glo makes a good thermostatic remote, but I would call your local Heating and A/C company to get an estimate on cost for the remote and Install, you may want to call them and have the switch looked at, might be a lot cheaper, best of luck, hope that helped, let us know how I did for ya, thanks again,
mr.grzz

Need some troubleshooting tips on a fireplace. I've got the pilot on but when I flip the wall switch nothing happens.


Most of these unit are controlled with a millivolt signal that is generated from the thermopile.
We see this often at the beginning of the year.
Remove the wires from you wall switch and clean them so you have new metal showing and tighten them back to the wall switch.

With your gas valve in the on position try the switch.

If this doe not work do the same thing to the wires on the gas valve where they hook to the TP/TH connecting and the Th connection.

What thermostat will work for my gas fireplace?modelwh060396b 07/2006 has remote want a wall mount


A search for that model number did not yield any results. A brand name would help.
That said, if your gas fireplace has a milivolt valve with "TH" and "TP/TH" terminals on the side (for hooking up a remote, thermostat, or switch), then you can use a universal wireless wall system.
You can find wireless wall systems for gas fireplaces HERE.

That Thermostat will not work on a gas fireplace. The voltage is all wrong. You need a thermostat that will work on millivolts generated by the thermopile on the pilot assembly of the fireplace burner. It will only turn on, because you opened the circuit. It will not turn it off automatically or at all, for that matter.

Better yet, why don't you purchase a Wireless Remote Control that has a thermostat built-in. It's a multifunction remote that will work up to 25 feet from the fireplace and comes with a wall hanger. The SkyTech # 3301TH, should work well for you. http://www.skytechsystem.com/

The only thing a fireplace like your has that could be faulty is the thermocouple or safety switch on the gas valve.

A thermocouple is a likely suspect. Look in your manual for a part number and buy a replacement. Cleaning the old one might work too if it is heavily coated with carbon.

I cannote get my remote to operate the fireplace. I have installed 3 new batteries and it still does not work.


The remotes are often a problem...I would advise against repairing it....sometimes the sensor for the vent isn't visible enough for the remote...the wires or sensor can be melted....The best/cheapest solution is to run a wire from the same two contacts the remote sensor are hooked up to on the gas valve...and install a switch on the wall....Turn the fireplace on with the flick of a switch....a Thermostat can also be connected to operate the fireplace using the same contacts as the remote

I have a Model 792864B. Before you attempt to light the pilot light - make sure that any wall control switch or remote control for the fireplace is in the off position. Locate the gas supply line. There should be a gas supply valve to turn on the gas supply. The valve is usually painted a different color than the supply line like blue, green or yellow. Open the valve by pivoting the handle to be parallel to the gas line, usually counter-clockwise. When it is closed it is at a 90 degree angle from the supply line. Locate the pilot light assembly - this is the pilot light. There should also be a red or black ignitor button and a black or green valve control knob with the words "on" "off" and "pilot" on it. It may be located inside a black box, mine is marked heatolator, that has a lift off top. Lift off the top of the box. Push in the valve control knob and turn it until the word "pilot" is in line with the arrow (my arrow is red) or indicator line. While pressing and holding in the valve control knob - it presses in about 1/4", press the red or black ignitor button repeatedly (once per second) until the pilot ignites. Once the pilot is lit, continue to hold the valve knob in for about 30 seconds and then slowly release. The pilot should remain lit. If it remains lit, press in and turn the valve control knob to the "on" position. The on/off wall or remote control switch should now light your fireplace. If the pilot doesn't ignite, turn off gas supply valve, wait about 5 minutes and try it again.
