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:

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


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!

I have a 5301. Connected last year, worked fine. Installed new batteries, connects and beeps, but fireplace won't light. All controls are in correct position.

I know it seems obvious, but sometimes over the summer people shut off their pilot light, and when relighting forget to move the pilot knob back to the "on" position after the pilot is going - check this first.
Next, you can slide the switch on the Skytech 5301 receiver from "remote" to "on" and verify that it lights the burner. If it does, you may need to re-sync the remote to the receiver. If it does not, check to make sure your wires are nice and tight on the TH & TP/TH connections of the valve.
If you are still having trouble, Skytech has a toll-free hotline for tech support on the 5301. It is: 1-888-672-8929 8am-5pm EST.

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.

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.

How do I sync my remote to the receiver?

If you don't have your Owners Manual, it's available online in pdf format from SkyTech. I recommend that you download it and print for future reference. These are not hard to program, but having the Owners Manual for other trouble shooting problems you may encounter, makes it worth it's weight in gold.

If, when you click on the link above and it doesn't work .. copy and paste it into you web browser.

Receiver was beeping... Jiggled it ... Stopped beeping... Now not working ...tried to reset transmitter with receiver but will not work .... Did replace batteries and recharged receiver as well ... Remote...

There's no quick answer to your problem, as it may be your gas fireplace that's causing the problem. If you still have your Owners Installation Manual look at page # 7 (Trouble Shooting), this should help you solve your problem. If you don't have your Owners Manual, you can download it online from SkyTech's website. If all else fails contact SkyTech's Technical Service Dept @ 888-672-8929
They are friendly and knowledgeable folks to work with.

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.

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.
