We have a Monessen Hearth system but I'm not sure which model (DL18, DL24, DL28) according to the instructions but I do know the remote says Acumen Model No FDC-501. The remote and its related receiver do not seem to be working together anymore though we can still turn the fire on with the receiver at the 'ON' position and turn it off as well. The remote setting no longer seems to work. What remote and receiver combo is likely to work for us?

Per the manufacturer, the Acumen RCK-I is an exact replacement to your existing FDC-501. It is likely that either the RF transmitter or receiver is bad. This would explain why the receiver still works manually.

I need to replace an RCK-K remote control kit. See pictures for the receiver and transmitter I have. The difference between RCK-I vs RCK-K seems to be the thermostatic functions. What are these functions?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 18, 2014
Based on the appearance of your current remote, it appears you have an Acumen RCK-K, badged for Regency. The RCK-I is a simply on and off remote, which also displays room temperature. The RCK-K allows you to switch back and forth between manual and thermostat modes. The RCK-K also has a clock and timer built in as standard.

I have an Acumen RX05 remote control and the receiver unit has failed. It will not work in remote or manual modes, but when I put the battery pack directly to the valve wiring, I can hear the valve make it's normal click (gas line is off). So I believe I need a replacement remote. Is the RCK-I a direct replacement for the RX05?

While this RCK-I will certainly work for your fireplace, it may not be a direct replacement for your current remote kit. The RX05 receiver is the part Acumen uses on any millivolt gas valve remote kit, but the features of those remote kits vary. This RCK-I is a basic on/off remote with a room temperature display. If that fits your needs and preference, then this will work as a replacement.

I need to replace my Acumen RX05. Do they still make this, or what model can replace it?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 4, 2014
This replaced a broken remote controller. This replacement is a much better quality unit than the original. I am very happy with the product, the info provided on the website and the speed of delivery. The price was right also.
