Customer Questions & Answers
By Daren from Seattle on November 2, 2013
I have an Acumen FDC 503 remote that has quit working. Would this be an acceptable replacement? My stove is a Regency U43NG.
By Kevin E. - NFI Certified Specialist on November 3, 2013

Answer:
It appears your Regency U43 utilizes a standard millivolt valve set-up. As such, this remote would work perfectly for your application.

By Jake from Santa Cruz, CA on November 9, 2013
I have an Envirogas Model # EG 40 FPI.BV Natural Gas insert with the Acumen TX 02C remote thermostat, along with an Acumen # RX 04 receiver. Would this item be a good replacement?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 11, 2013

Answer:
Per Acumen, the RCK-D is indeed a compatible replacement for the current TX02 that you have now. While it is not a direct replacement, the functionality is nearly the same.

By Simon from Wilmington, Delaware on September 23, 2013
I have a Waterford E61-NG that can be connected to a 250-750 millivolt rated non-anticipator thermostat (per pages 13 & 14). Will this one work?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 24, 2013

Answer:
This remote does indeed meet those guidelines and could be used to control your appliance.

By Patricia from NJ on January 18, 2015
The model number on my current remote is FDC504 and it is roughly 12 years old. Is this the same one?
By eFireplaceStore on January 19, 2015

Answer:
The FDC-504 was an on/off thermostatic remote with a battery operated receiver and transmitter. The direct replacement for it is the Acumen RCK-K Manual On/Off and Thermostat DC Remote Control Kit.

By Stacey from Indianapolis, IN on January 3, 2014
We have a direct vent fireplace that was installed when we built our home. It currently ignites with a wall switch but we were told we could convert it to a battery ignition system (with remote) if we wanted to. I'm just not sure which product we should buy or if it matters that it's a direct vent (with glass etc) so that we can install it. Do you have any suggestions?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 3, 2014

Answer:
By your description, you have a standard millivolt type of direct vent gas fireplace. As such, either the Acumen RCK-K Manual On/Off and Thermostat DC Remote Control Kit or the Acumen RCK-I Manual On/Off DC Remote Control Kit could be used for your application.

By Ralph from LaPlata, MD on November 10, 2015
I am looking for a replacement for an Acumen Model RX-05 . Can I use this RCK-D manual on/off and thermostat AC remote control kit?
By Will M. on November 10, 2015

Answer:
The RX-05 was used for several Acumen millivolt systems, so this AC remote system would not be correct. The Acumen RCK-K Manual On/Off and Thermostat DC Remote Control Kit would be our recommendation.

By Russell from WA on December 22, 2015
I have an RX-04 remote control system but I lost the remote. Is this Acumen RCK-D manual on/off and thermostat AC remote control kit the replacement unit? Can I just buy a remote?
By Will M. on December 22, 2015

Answer:
The remote and receiver will only be available in pairs and the remote system in question is the correct replacement system.

By David from Corvallis, Oregon on September 16, 2013
I have an Acumen TX 02C remote thermostat along with an Acumen # RX 04 receiver connected to a Waterford Emerald cast iron stove, Model # E63-LP1 Propane. Would the Acumen RCK-D Manual On/Off and Thermostat AC Remote Control Kit be able to directly replace what I now have set up?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 17, 2013

Answer:
From the information I was able to locate, it appears this stoves utilizes a standard SIT brand millivolt valve. As such, the Acumen RCK-D can be used as a replacement for your current remote setup.

By Al from Nevada on February 24, 2014
Will this kit work on an Avalon Astoria pellet stove?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 25, 2014

Answer:
Going of off the owner's manual for this unit, you can indeed swap the original thermostat for this particular remote. The remote receiver will be able to handle the low voltage current that the pellet stove operates on.

By Michael from Standish, ME on April 30, 2015
Will this Acumen RCK-D manual on/off and thermostat work with my Waterford Emerald E-61 (LP) gas fireplace insert?
By Brennan W. on April 30, 2015

Answer:
Because you have a millivolt valve in your fireplace insert, you can indeed use this remote control.

By VF from Truckee, CA on May 15, 2016
We have a Jotul GF 600. Will this thermostat work?
By eFireplaceStore on May 16, 2016

Answer:
This model of Jotul stove utilizes a simple on/off millivolt valve assembly. As such, this remote will indeed work to operate the valve.

By Sheryl from Millbrae, CA on October 29, 2014
I am replacing a remote control for a Heat-n-Glo 6000TV gas fireplace that was installed in 1991. The manual indicates that the receiver must be 120v. We only have an on/off switch so I'd like to know if the thermostat feature could work or would it be better to purchase the Acumen RCK-D. What would you suggest?
By eFireplaceStore on October 30, 2014

Answer:
The RCK-D and the RCK-B will work for your application. They work in essentially the same way, with the thermostatic feature of the RCK-D being the only difference between the two.

By Fred from Broad Brook, CT on February 8, 2016
I have a Hargrove Woodland Glow vent free natural gas log set with a standing pilot gas valve assembly. The valve has two unmarked contacts. (see photo). Will your remote control kit be compatible with my unit? If so, does it matter how the contacts are connected to the unit's leads?.
By Will M. on February 9, 2016

Answer:
This remote system will not as the Hargrove system you have features a Maxitrol latching solenoid valve. However, the SkyTech SKY-MRCK or SkyTech SKY-MRCKTH should work quite well. To answer your question, the two male leads will be different sizes and the latching solenoid remote systems will have female leads that will only fit the matching male lead.

Gas Fireplace Remote Control Upgrade

I would recommend this item to a friend.
The two gas fireplaces in our house were originally equipped with Acumen remote control units with battery operated receivers. To put it mildly, they "ate" AA batteries! I replaced both units with Acumen Model D remote control units which use AC power for the receivers. The installation went very smoothly and the units work great! Just one thing. Follow the instructions to the letter when setting up the security code feature. The sequence of steps is crucial to a successful setup.

Needed a replacement kit but the one that was sent did not work properly. Your customer service team was very helpful and sent out another kit which works very well.
Pros:

Like the review from "Simin M.", : "Did not work when I first hooked it up - Soon realized I needed to sync the code between the remote and receiver even though I had not changed it from the factory presets." It didn't work for me until I changed the code - first, I tried changing only one number and followed the instructions - still didn't work. Then I changed a second number and, YEAH! - success. -Skip R.

Fantastic! This unit replaced my 15 year old unit PERFECTLY! 3 minute installation and it works as good as the old unit. A dealer was going to charge me over $300.00 to replace unit. 5 star rating!

Bought this remote control to replace one that went bad after 7 years of use. Extremely easy to install and worked correctly right off the bat. Would highly recommend this product.

This unit works perfectly. Finally we don't have to manually adjust our gas fireplace.

Easy Install

I would recommend this item to a friend.
Nice simple unit - installed and working in half an hour. Remote is uncomplicated and easy to use. Tend to use our Gas fire a lot more as in thermo mode we can keep the room at a comfortable temperature - before the fire would run constantly and the room became very hot. Fire shuts down about 2 degrees above the set point and relights about 2-3 degrees below the set point.
Cons:
Did not work when I first hooked it up - Soon realized I needed to sync the code between the remote and receiver even though I had not changed it from the factory presets.
