My 3301 is not working. We bought our gas fireplace and everything about 8 years ago. The remote display stopped working about 2 years ago, but the remote still turned the unit on and off. I still hear it beeping as usual, but still not working. Both parts have all new batteries as well, it only works when I bypass the remote and switch over to on. Couple questions: 1. Do you think I need a new remote? 2. If I need a new one can we install a different kind of remote system, perhaps one not quite as expensive?

Indeed, it does sound like your transmitter has finally bit the dust. Any SkyTech on/off remote for millivolt valves will be a suitable replacement. Something like the S1001
or the 1001TH
would be appropriate.

I have a direct vent fireplace by Majestic Vermont Castings. The model number is DVRT36, is this remote compatible? If not, which do you recommend? It's to replace a "Honeywell RV8310D,E Receiver/Valve RT8220A Transmitter RF Control for a millivolt system".

Answer:Your fireplace uses a standard 2-wire millivolt gas valve. As such, you certainly can use this remote as a replacement for your original Honeywell assembly.

Is the system already synchronized or I do I have to do that? If I have to do it, are there instructions with the parts?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 25, 2013
Answer:In most cases, the remote and receiver will already be paired to one another from the factory, however it is necessary on some occasions to perform the learn procedure again. This is a fairly easy process and will be covered in the supplied manufacturer instructions.
