Remote unit slides open but cant find battery cover-model AR-DL10

It is about 2 to 3 yrs old and I think we need new batteries. It has a sleep button at th etop left and a Timer button on top right. I cant figure out where the battery hatch is. I assume we need to get the slider off and maybe it is there?

Also, where can I buy a new one?

Thanks, Ian

When sliding the bottom part of the remote down, you have to lift it slightly (I did this with a letter opener - very carefully) to pry the door up from two stops that normally prevent the dorr from sliding down too far. If you look carefully, you can see what I mean.

Yes it is at back of slide door of your remote, slide down the remote control door and remove it then you can see the battery inside.

My ARDL-10 remote would only slide down far enough to expose the controls inside, but not far enough to show battery compartment. After a lot of attempts I gently pushed up on one side with it opened as far as it would go and it "clicked" off the little catch that was holding it. I put it back on in the reverse after I installed new batteries..

I have a model AR-DL10 remote. One of the batteries corroded , installed new ones and now the unit will not respond. What should I do?

Pull the new batteries and clean the terminals. If cleaning don't work the corrosion may have damaged the remote. Use a PC of sand paper, or scratch the surface that the batteries touch.

I have a Napoleon GD S50-N gas fireplace and the remote has stopped working

First, have you changed ALL of the batteries for the remote control? Not just the ones in the hand held remote.

If that is the case, you'll find a black box down in the lower louvered control compartment. That box is wired to the the control valve terminals. You will not be able to remove it from the fireplace, but there should be enough wiring to allow you to move it towards you.

Depending on who manufactured the remote, in most cases, if you turn the box over and look at the bottom, you can access the batteries (usually 4-AA Alkaline batteries) by sliding the cover back were indicated. If your model is a Skytech Remote, you may have to remove the front cover plate to slide the bottom off. Other manufacturers may have a slide out drawer. Simply push on the face of the door and it will pop out. In either case, be sure to look for any corrosion that the old batteries may have caused and clean it out. Also, note which way the batteries are facing, as you want to install the new ones the exact same way. Failure to do that, will cause the remote receiver not to work.

On the front of the receiver box, there should be a 2 or 3 position slide switch. All the way to the left is the OFF . The Middle Position is REMOTE and the Right position is ON. The ON position is a manual override that will light the burners, if the batteries are dead or the remote has failed.

Once you've replaced the batteries, be sure the slide switch is in the Remote position. If not, the hand held won't work.

If all of this fails, please contact me through the Comments Section and provide me with who the manufacturer is and the model number of the remote control unit.

Hope this helps you resolve the problem.

Replace remote control unit model ar-fb2

If your remote control have display but cannot transmit signal to the unit. Confirm first if the remote is really the problem, using your camera or cellphone camera as your eyes point the remote transmitter to your camera and "on" the remote. You should see light emits in your remote control, if no emitted light then the remote control is defective. But if there is a light the defect is in the unit receiver.

Check also if there is a reset or rst button in your remote control and reset it and try.

Check also if there are error codes in the unit, reset the unit by disconnecting the power supply in the unit for 10 sec. and "on" again and try.

The unit can be operate without remote control, use the manual button located in the unit.

If the remote control have no display replacement of remote is recommended.

Remote control not working for split system

slide the slider down until it stops, then lift/prize the middle of the slider lid upward (or outward,, however you concieve it) and continue sliding the final 2cm. Voila! batteries are revealed. 2x AAA.

Don't understand? (Don't worry, my wife can't do it even after watching me do it TWICE !!)
Okay... the slider stops about 2cm from the bottom of the remote (when slid down as far as it will go). The reason for this is a small catch in the middle of the remote, just below the lidof the slider-bit. You need to LIFT the lid of the slider over that catch. The reason I use the word 'prize' beacuse you'll need to dig your fingers downwards, just below the TIME ADJUST button, and at the same time work the lid upwards against this pressure. LIFT / PRIZE the lid up in the middle, and away it comes!!

Still don't get it? YOU ARE USELESS and must go and pay one of the clever people to do it for you, *******!!!!!

Ha Ha aaaahhhh!
