Remote turns gas fireplace insert on by it's self even in the off position

My gas insert remote turns the fire on even in the "off" position mode. It's always unpredictable. I have come home and the fireplace is on but the remote says it is "off". Sometimes when I get up in the morning I see it has turned itself on. I never leave it in the "thermal" mode which I have set at 45 degrees. I always find that it turns itself on when in the "off" mode. I have to manually go through the mode series to turn it off. I feel it is dangerous to leave it unattended because I don't trust it so I take the batteries out when I don't want to use it to make sure it doesn't turn itself on.

SOURCE: Tv turns off by itself

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

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.

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.

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.

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.

My remote won't control the fireplace. Do you have to program it


Normally, it comes programed. Before trying to reprogram it ...First, be sure you have the leads from the black receiver box connected to the proper terminals on the control valve of your gas fireplace. Secondly, be sure ALL the batteries are installed properly (i.e. facing the right direction). Do you get a beep when you press the Mode button on the hand held remote? If you do, the problem is some where else.

If you gas fireplace has a rocker switch in the control compartment that was used to turn the burner on and off ... Is it a 2 position switch or a 3 position switch? If it's a 2 position switch, be sure it's in the ON position. If it's a 3 position switch, it should be in the middle position. Is the gas control valve knob turned from Pilot to the ON position? Is your Pilot Light burning? It has to be for the remote control to work.

To test the whether or not the remote is connected properly, push the slide switch on the front of the black receiver box to the ON position. If you pilot is burning and the control knob for the burner is in the ON position, the burner should then light. If it doesn't then I suspect the wiring from the black receiver box to the control valve is not connected to the proper terminals. Or a rocker switch is in the wrong position. If all this fails contact SkyTech Technical Service @ 888-672-8929.

I had the same problem. Just came home one day and tried to to turn the fireplace on and got no beep and no fire.Not sure if you still need this but I just finished repairing mine by trial and error. This might work for you so give it a try. If you look at the rear side of the receiver (left black box on the left side of the fireplace insert) you should see a series of white dip switches. I turned them all to the off positions and now my remote works.
