Question:

I have a model 1001-A remote for my gas fireplace. When I hit the on button, the red light on the remote lights up but nothing happens in the fireplace. The pilot light is not out in the fire and there is a fresh battery in the remote. What am I doing wrong? Thx

Answers:

  • One thing to ensure is that there's a fresh set of batteries in the receiver box as well as no corrosion on the contacts. From there, you will want to test a manual ignition by switching the receiver box from "remote" to "on" to see if the fireplace turns on. If not, you may have an issue with the fireplace beyond just the remote system.

Question:

the sky-1001 receiver I used before is broken. I bought a new sky-1001-A, but it doesn't work. is it a connection problem or a wrong model?

Answers:

  • It is possible that the new remote needs a fresh set of batteries, the batteries for the new ones are not great. Otherwise if that does not work, there may be an installation issue.

Question:

Is it possible to reprogram the 1001th-a so that the system operates with one degree difference in temperature instead of 2?

Answers:

  • This function is pre-set at the factory and cannot be changed. The normal operating cycle of an appliance may be 2-4 times per hour depending on how well the room or home is insulated from the cold or drafts.

Question:

Is the wall mount necessary? I don't have that for the 1001 model. Will I need an electrician to install?

Answers:

  • The wall mount does not have to be used. It can be placed in the cavity under the firebox for an insert or in the firebox for a gas log set as long as it is as far away from the flame as possible, preferably near the front of the firebox. An electrician is not usually necessary, it involves connecting dry contact leads to the valve assembly in most cases.
