We have a Skytech 3301-1 remote. We have changed the batteries on remote and gas fireplace. The problem is when we leave it will not kick on automatically. We will set it at like 72 and when we come back it is not working. We haven't done anything differently. It had worked for two years.

Answer:Does the thermostatic function work at all? If not, then likely the remote is defective.

I currently have an Ambient RCST installed on my heater. I want to be able to set time to come on/off. Is this Skytech 3301P programmable millivolt thermostatic remote control the best option? Will it install like the RCST so I can follow the same install "pattern"?
By eFireplaceStore on November 9, 2015
Answer:This model of remote will indeed be your best option for programmability of time windows for operation. The Skytech receiver will install in almost exactly the same manner as the Ambient model did. As such, the installation should be a relatively easy swap.

I currently have a Skytech 3301BE thermostat which is 10 years and not working. I would like to purchase the 3301P. Does the receiver use batteries and have 3 wires? Is this compatible to the one I have? I have a Jotel gas stove.

Answer:The remote receiver for the 3301P operates on four AA 1.5V batteries. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

I have a Heatilator gas fireplace model ND4326I. Will this remote work with it? The original remote was a Sky Tech 3324R but I understand Heatilator now has their own brand name remotes and does not use Sky Tech.
By Kevin E. on November 24, 2014
Answer:Yes, as both the 3324R and the 3301P are designed for Millivolt applications, the 3301P will be a fine replacement for you. When installing, you'll want to be sure and swap out both the transmitter and the receiver.

I have an Osburn gas insert which came with a Sky-Tech 3001P programmable remote which finally bit the dust after many years. Do this still make this model? If not, is there a replacement model that is made?
By eFireplaceStore on November 11, 2014
Answer:The 3001P has indeed been discontinued and replaced with the model you are viewing now. Aside from a few programming improvements, the remote is essentially the same.

I dropped the remote control SKY-3301 model. It still works but I cannot read the LCD screen. Is is possible to purchase just the remote or do I have to buy the remote & receiver?
By Brennan W. on December 7, 2016
Answer:Unfortunately, SkyTech does not offer the remote alone. You would need to replace the remote and the receiver.

I am interested in adding a remote control to my remote ready vent free gas stove. It was in the house when we purchased it so I do not know how old it is. Upon inspection it is clear that it is a millivolt system but it is not clear that there is a place to plug the piggy back wires. It looks more that I have to screw them on to make the contact. Is this the case with older model stoves and is there a way to purchase the programmable remote and make it work with what I have?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 26, 2013
Answer:Some older millivolt stoves do indeed lack the male spade connection to attach the remote receiver harness. In these cases, the female spades must be cut from the wire harness and the wires stripped. This will allow you to attach the wires to the gas valve below the brass attachment screws on the wiring block.
The programmable remote uses the very same receiver as the standard on/off remote, so installation would be exactly the same.

I would like to find a programmable thermostat that will work with a gas fireplace that requires a thermostat supporting 325 to 750 millivolts. I currently have a millivolt thermostat wired to the fireplace that works fine but it is not programmable. The current thermostat is wired with two wires going to the fireplace insert. Can I use the 3301P and wire it to the existing 2 wires that will be sticking out of the wall after I remove the old thermostat?
By eFireplaceStore on December 16, 2014
Answer:This remote will indeed work in place of your current setup, as it falls into the millivolt range needed and uses an input and output wire to complete the millivolt circuit, as your current system does.

Would this be a direct replacement for a Napoleon F60 remote? I currently use that model on my Ascent linear 36 fireplace but would like to have a scheduled timer option.
By Will M. on October 18, 2016
Answer:This remote would most certainly work as a replacement for the F60.

Can the same receiver I already use with a Skytech 3301 work with the 3301P? And can I override the temperature if needed?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 16, 2012
Answer:The 3301 and 3301P do indeed utilize the same receiver assembly. However, the remote and receiver come as a matched set and a new receiver would be provided with the purchase of the 3301P.
You can also use the 3301P manually and do not have to utilize the temperature control.
