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.

Ambient remote control 5884 won't turn fireplace on and off


  • Make sure your valve is in the "on" position and not "pilot".
  • Install fresh batteries in both remote and receiver (remotes are finicky about good batteries.
  • Ensure the switch on your receiver is in the "remote" position.
  • Follow manual to re-sync handheld to receiver if necessary.
  • A burner not lighting could also be the fault of the appliance (bad thermopile). Check this too, and replace if needed.
  • Replace remote if necessary: Universal Fireplace Remotes

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!

Cant start gas fireplace


  • Find the remote's receiver under the fireplace.
  • There should be a switch to change from "remote" to "ON".
  • Turn the switch to "ON", if the fireplace ignites, you may need to re synchronize your remote. If it does not, your remote control may be bad.
  • Bypass the remote to ensure your fireplace is operational by connecting the "TH" and "TP/TH" terminals on the valve with a wire or paperclip. If the fireplace lights up fine, then it is for sure a bad remote.

Skytech-3001 Thermo won't work


I am having some trouble! Mine became unconnected and I don't know how to reconnect. There is two wire, red and white, a box that sits inside the fireplace that has an on/off sitch and a box that sits outside the fireplace with a off/remore/on switch. How do I connect it back? Please help!

I just replaced the batteries in the remote control for my Ambient fireplace and now the remote is not working


You didn't mention how many batteries you replaced. If it was only the 3 (AAA) in the hand held remote, you have 4 (AA) to go in the remote's receiver. It's the black box, inside the fireplace.

Depending on how long the batteries have been dead, the remote may have lost it's privacy/frequency code. In which case, it can be reset.

here is a link to your Owners Manual http://literature.mhsc.com/ambient/manuals/RCMT.pdf in case you have misplaced yours. You can download and print it, if you like. It will walk you through how to reset the privacy/frequency code. It has a Trouble Shooting Guide, that can prove invaluable.

Also, make sure the pilot on your gas logs or fireplace is burning and the Control Valve Knob is turned to the ON position. If it isn't, the remote control will not work

Hope this helps solve your problem.

Receiver was beeping all the time. I changed batteries in receiver, and now remote does not control fireplace. Remote appears to be working fine. If I move switch to on instead of remote on receiver, it...


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.
