WARNING
Important Safety Information
•
•
•
•
NOTE
Due to the sensitive temperature monitoring components in the transmitter, it is necessary to
allow the transmitter to stabilize to room temperature before accurate room temperatures are
displayed. If the transmitter is activated from a severe cold condition, allow 15 minutes for
accurate temperature readings to appear on the LCD.
WARNING
Turn appliance OFF and allow to cool before installing or servicing. DO NOT connect
110-120 VAC wiring to the milli-volt gas control valve. The remote operator must be installed
exactly as outlined in these instructions. Read all instructions completely before attempting
installation. Follow instructions carefully during installation. Any modification of
components will void the warranty and may cause a fire hazard.
WARNING
•
Read this manual thoroughly prior to installing, programming or operating any remote control.
This remote control system is designed for use with a millivolt gas valve system. Do not use this remote
control system on applications with voltages above 30 Volts AC.
This remote control system requires three (3) “AAA” and four (4) “AA” alkaline batteries to power the
transmitter and receiver. Wiring must conform to appliance requirement and building codes/ordinances as
required by local and national code authorities having jurisdiction.
Do not short (or jumper) across the gas valve terminals to test the remote control installation. This could
damage the unit and void the warranty.
This remote control system should only be used as described in this manual. Any other use is not
recommended and will void the warranty.
Low battery power in the transmitter or receiver can affect the operation of the remote
control in the AUTO mode. In some cases the unit may not cycle off when the target
temperature is reached.
