SOURCE: skytech model no. sky-3001 changed batteries in

You have to get the remote and transceiver to talk to each other. Remove all the batteries and wait a couple of minutes
before replaceing them. Place the transceiver in the REMOTE
position, press and hold down the LEARN button, and then
press the MODE button on the remote control. A change in the
beep tone will be heard and you have MARRIED the two devices. Should solve the problem.

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.

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.

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!

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.

How do I sinc my fireplace remote ecs1001-a two button to fireplace


Each transmitter uses a unique security code. It will be necessary to press the LEARN button on the receiver to accept the transmitter security code upon initial use, if batteries are replaced, or if a replacement transmitter is purchased from your dealer or the
factory. In order for the receiver to accept the transmitter security code, be sure the slide button on the receiver is in the REMOTE
position; the receiver will not LEARN if the slide switch is in the ON or OFF position. The LEARN button in located on the front face
of the receiver; inside the small hole labeled LEARN. Using a small screwdriver or end of a paperclip gently press and release
the black LEARN button inside the hole. When you release the LEARN button the receiver will emit an audible "beep". After the
receiver emits the beep press ANY transmitter button and release. The receiver will emit several beeps indicating that the transmitter's code has been accepted into the receiver.

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.

My remote control (SKY-3001) doesn't seem to communicate with the propane stove.


Sounds like either the batteries are weak or it's lost it's security code. Also, be sure the slide switch on the front of the receiver (the Black Box) is in the Remote position. If after changing ALL the batteries (4-AA in the receiver and 2-AAA in the hand held remote) and they're all positioned properly and it still doesn't work, check the LCD screen to see if the child lock or lock out has been activated. If so, deactivate by pressing the Mode button and the Up button at the same time and hold for 2 seconds. The Lockout icon should disappear.

And finally, if all else fails you'll need to reset the security code. There are 1,048,576 unique security codes, but you'll need only one.

When matching security codes, be sure the slide switch is placed 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 using a very small scree driver to push in the LEARN button (on the top of the fron of the receiver to the left over the ON position) while at the same time pressing the MODE button on the hand held transmitter. A change in the beeping pattern, at the receiver, indicates the transmitters code has been programmed into the receiver.

The microprocessor that controls the security code matching procedures controlled by a timing function. If you are unsuccessful inmatching the securiy code on the first attempt, wait 1-2 minutes before trying again - this delay allows the microprocessor to reset its timer circuitry and try up to two or three more times

If all of the above solutions fails to solve your problem contact SkyTech Technical Service at 888-672-8929, Monday - Friday.

In the meantime, if you want or need to use your gas log stove for supplemental heating, move the slide switch to the ON position and the burner(s) will light. That's assuming that the gas control valve on the gas log stove is turned to the PILOT position. To turn it off, move the slide switch to the OFF Position and the burners will go out and the pilot will remain burning.

Good luck. Please let me know how it worked out for you.

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.
