Question about Honeywell Heating & Cooling

Open Question

I have a honeywell remote control for a vermont castings fireplace. Everything worked fine until we replaced the batteries in the remote control. Now the display on the remote control works fine, but there is no communication between the remote and the transmitter. We've tried the steps in the manual to re-establish the communication without luck. The red LED light on the transmitter blinks constantly, which I think indicates some problem. Does anyone know the likely cause of our problem and how it can be fixed? Thanks.

SOURCE: red LED on honeywell r6660d

The problem is that the 2 units are "not speaking to each other". this could be caused by low batteries or a loss in signal caused by a powercut or an objection in the way of the 2 units.

first you need to turn the power off to the r666od (or otherwise known as the HC60NG) for 10 secs, then turn back on. then hold the grey button in for 15 secs. release then hold in for a further 5 secs.

go to the honeywell cm61 press the off button. hold temp up. temp down and prog 1 in for 3 secs until the dipslay goes to INST. at this point release all 3 buttons then press the i button until a beacon starts flashing.

this is now the end to your problem.

N.B the reason the green light was on is because the man override button will have been pressed.

hope this helps

SOURCE: Replaced mercury thermostat w/Honeywell CT87K - doesn't work!

You need a specific thermostat for a Wall Furnace it is a Millivolt Thermostat and not a 24v standard thermostat....usually it will work anyway however if the powerpile (generator produces millivolts from the pilot light) is weak it may not be producing enough...or the Pilot light may be dirty and lazy...won't produce enough millivolts ...or you can have bad or dirty contacts or connections....or a combination of any of the above.....a 24v Thermostat and particularly a non-mercury thermostat has too much resistance in it for a millivolt your Wall Furnace (other than the fan) runs on less than 1 volt

I've changed the batteries in BOTH remotes for out Vermont Castings Fireplace, and made sure the "remote control" setting is set on the fireplace itself Why won't they work with new...

Make sure the batteries are in correct and then I would be concerned with the send receive unit in the fireplace. Is it an IR remote (needs to be pointed directly at the receiving IR) . If that is the case then the IR receiver may be blocked or covered. If this is an RF remote then you don't need direct line of vision and I would look at the receive unit.

Fireplace remote control no longer works correctly

To re-sync your Honeywell 8220 transmitter to the valve: Turn the Local/Remote switch on your valve to Local. Then switch it back to Remote. Within 10 seconds of switching it to Remote, you need to press the Flame button on your transmitter. This will re-sync your transmitter to the receiver in the valve. Replacement transmitters and valves are no longer available for this system, they were discontinued by Honeywell and they are completely out of stock. Monessen Hearth Systems (now owns Majestic, Vermont, etc) has a retrofit kit with a new valve, pilot assy, and remote for these old RF units. (expensive, but cheaper than a new fireplace). FYI, aftermarket remotes are NOT compatible with this Honeywell system.

I have a Vermont Castings gas fireplace and a honeywell remote control. Recently the control developed an issue where it will not shut the fireplace off. I have to do it manually. It still turns it on...

It could be that your transmitter is bad. You may want to try to re-sync the remote to the fireplace. Slide the Remote/Local switch on your valve from remote to local, then back to remote. Within 10 seconds press the flame button on your transmitter. This will establish a new frequency connection between your transmitter and valve. Good luck!

Vermont Castings (honeywell) remote not turning on fireplace. I replaced batteries. Is there a way to reset?

Yes, you can re-synchronize the transmitter to the valve. Turn the switch on the valve from "remote" to "local", then switch it back to "remote". Within 10 seconds, press the flame button on the transmitter to re-establish the handheld remote to the valve.
