    I have a Vermont Castings RADVTCS propane heater stove. It originally had the RCSITEA-P remote. Will this remote work as a replacement?
    1 Answer
    To retain all the functions of the original RCSITEA remote (on/off, thermostat, flame adjustment, blower control) you would need a new RCSITEA remote.

    I have a Monessen System Model #DLX24NMASB ventless fireplace with natural gas. Will this thermostat work?
    1 Answer
    No, we're sorry. The "M" designation appears to indicate this is a manual control model, which would not be able to receive a remote control system of any kind.

    from Colfax, CA asked:
    April 10, 2019
    Was changing the batteries and it somehow switched from Fahrenheit to Celsius. How do I switch it back?
    1 Answer
    To change the setting of the remote: 1. After initial power up or when RESET button is pressed, the transmitter is reset. The reset button is located inside the battery door. 2. During system reset, all features of the LCD will be visible. After one second, the LCD will be initialized. A typical reset display is shown above. Note that the temperature scale is degree F. 3. Press On button to select between °C and °F display. It will exit setting mode automatically after 10 seconds if no key is pressed. The transmitter will send an Off signal after reset. 4. After reset the transmitter is operating in manual mode. The room temperature are shown as above.

    1 Answer
    This would indeed be a suitable replacement option, but would not have timer functionality or a way to program set temperatures for various days of the week. Ambient no longer offers a similar remote option that would provide this type of functionality, however, the RCST will indeed provide On/Off/Thermostat control of the fireplace or log set.

    How do I switch from Farenheit to Celsius on the remote?
    1 Answer
    To change the temperature readout, the reset button must be pressed. This button will be located in the battery compartment of the remote. Once reset, push the "on" button of the remote. The "on" button can be pushed to toggle between F and C. Once C is selected, allow 10 seconds for the remote to save the setting. The remote can now be used normally.

    It is just simply the best. The remote has a flat bottom surface so it will stand up on any furniture with a flat top. It would be nice if they would include a wall mounted holder for the remote.

    Ambient RCST Thermostatic Remote and Control Box
    Used to replace both the (older 2007) Ambient RCT TX/RX on my milli-volt Monessen Gas Logs. New RCST RX white connector for the wires going to the logs was the same as was already connected on my logs so I swapped out TX/RX and was done and happily heating in 5 minutes. I ordered via web on a Sunday evening with Efireplacestore's regular free ground shipping and received the order in Pennsylvania 3 days later on Wednesday.

    Good Product - Lousy Instructions
    We have had an RCT Remote Control for more than a year. When I first bought it, I found the instructions so badly written that it took more than an hour to program it. We shut off the gas to the stove for the summer and brought it back on line early November. The instructions are so badly written that I had to re-educate myself all over again as to how to program it - and I am an engineer. The product works as advertised, but Ambient should hire a human interface company to re-write the instructions so ordinary folks can understand how to program it.

    Delivered before promised date. Easy to install batteries provided. Fits in the hand easily. Works perfectly. I especially like the thermostat control for my gas fired logs. It's a wonderful item and the price was the best I could find after asking the installer of the new logs and looking on the internet.
    ConsWould be nice to have in a lighter color but black is not really a bad choice.

    Very Convenient
    If we were to shop locally, they told us they would have to order one of these anyway, and we would have to come pick it up. We decided to just cut out the middle-man and order it ourselves. It came quickly after we put in the order, and it really saved us a hassle of driving out and looking for one. It really functions as well as they say.
