INSTALLATION

Remote Receiver

The remote receiver can be either wall-mounted in a standard plastic switch box (not metal) or placed on or near the fireplace hearth.

Preferably, the remote receiver should be wall-mounted in a plastic switch box, as this will protect its electronic components from the heat produced by the gas appliance. The remote receiver should be kept away from temperatures exceeding 130º F. Battery life is also significantly shortened if batteries are exposed to temperatures 130ºF or higher.

Before installation make sure the remote receiver slide switch is in the OFF position. After installation be sure that the slide switch is moved to the REMOTE position.

WARNING

This remote control system must be installed exactly as outlined in these instructions. Read all instructions completely before attempting installation. Follow instructions carefully during installation. Any modifications of this remote control or any of its components will void the warranty and may pose a fire hazard.

Consult gas appliance manufacturer’s instructions and wiring schematics for proper placement of all wires. All electronic modules are to be wired to manufacturer’s specifications.

The following wiring diagrams are for illustration purpose only. Follow instructions from manufacturer of gas valve and/or electronic module for correct wiring procedures. Improper installation of electric components can cause damage to electronic module, gas valve and remote receiver.

MOUNTING THE REMOTE RECEIVER

WALL MOUNT

When wall mounting the remote receiver, longer wires (not included) are required to connect to the gas valve or electronic module.

These wires must:

Be at least 18 Gauge (AWG)

Be no longer than 20’

Have no splices

To attach Cover Plate to Receiver Box:

Position the receiver as shown in diagram to the left with lower tab on cover plate inserted into groove of receiver (Make sure ADJ hole and LEARN hole on cover plate properly aligns with remote receiver). Pull receiver up and snap into top tab of cover plate.

HEARTH MOUNT

The remote receiver can be placed on the fireplace hearth or under the fireplace behind the control access panel.

Use the wires attached to the remote receiver to connect to the gas valve or the electric module (piggyback connectors have both male & female terminals for flexibility).

Be sure that the connectors do not touch each other or other bare metal surfaces; this will cause the appliance to turn on. The connectors may be wrapped with electrical tape to prevent this.

WIRING INSTRUCTIONS

A qualified electrician should install the remote control system.

CP (CHILDPROOF) FEATURE

This remote control includes a childproof feature that allows the user to “lock-out” operations from the Transmitter.

• To activate and de-activate the childproof feature, press and hold the ON button and the TIMER button at the same time for 5 seconds. The letters “CP” will appear in the TEMP frame on the LCD screen when childproof mode is activated.

“CP” will appear on the LCD screen if any button is pressed while childproof mode is engaged.

When this mode is engaged, all auto settings go on without interruption (like thermostat). Only manual functions are prevented.

LEARNING TRANSMITTER TO RECEIVER

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 the transmitter ON button and release. The receiver will emit several beeps indicating that the transmitter’s code has been accepted into the receiver.

NOTE: This receiver can hold up to 3 transmitter codes. This is for the times when a second hand held transmitter or a wall transmitter is required.

COMMUNICATION - SAFETY - TRANSMITTER - (C/S - T/X)

This remote control has a COMMUNICATION –SAFETY function built into its software to ensure the transmitter and receiver are communicating normally.

In all operating modes, the transmitter sends an RF signal every fifteen minutes to the receiver indicating that the transmitter is within the normal operating range of 20-feet. Should the receiver NOT receive this signal, the receiver will begin a 2 hour countdown. If the receiver does not receive a signal from the transmitter in 2 hours, the receiver will shut off the appliance. The receiver will then emit a series of rapid “beeps” for a period of 10 seconds. Then after 10 seconds of rapid beeping, the receiver will continue to emit a single

“beep” every 4 seconds until a transmitter ON, OFF or MODE Button is pressed to reset the receiver.

TRANSMITTER WALL CLIP

The transmitter can be hung on a wall using the clip provided.

Wood - Drill 1/8’’ pilot holes and install with screws provided.

Plaster/Wallboard - Drill 1/4’’ holes, then install with the screws provided.

WALL CLIP

BATTERY LIFE

Life expectancy of the alkaline batteries in the transmitter and receiver should be at least 12 months. Check and replace all batteries:

Annually.

When operating range becomes reduced.

When transmissions are not received by the remote receiver.

If the remote receiver batteries measure less than 5.3 volts (all four batteries in combination).

If the hand held transmitter batteries measure less than 2.5 volts (both batteries in combination).

TROUBLE SHOOTING

If you encounter problems with your fireplace system, the problem may be with either the fireplace itself or with this remote. Review the fireplace manufacturer’s operation manual to make sure all connections are properly made. Then check the operation of the remote in the following manner:

Make sure all batteries are correctly installed in the transmitter and receiver. Also check if the batteries are fully charged.

Check batteries in transmitter to make sure contacts are touching (+) and (-) ends of battery. Bend metal contacts in for tighter fit.

Be sure receiver and transmitter are within 20 to 25-feet operating range.

Keep receiver from temperatures exceeding 130 degrees F. Battery life will be shortened if exposed to high temperatures.

If receiver is installed in a tightly enclosed metal surrounding, the operating distance will be shortened.

Make sure the hand-held transmitter and remote receiver are communicating properly (See LEARNING TRANSMITTER TO RE-

CEIVER section).
