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.

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.

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.

The model number on my current remote is FDC504 and it is roughly 12 years old. Is this the same one?

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
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.
