C. CONTINUOUS PILOT – FOR VERY COLD CONDITIONS
The IPI gas control system has the option of a continuous (standing) pilot feature. This allows you to change from a spark-to-pilot system to a standing pilot system during cold weather conditions. By having the pilot on continuously, the firebox will remain warm and a draft is established in the vent, allowing the main burner to turn on with less air-flow disruption.
When continuous pilot mode is activated, the pilot will spark and light. When fireplace is turned OFF, the pilot will remain lit when main burner has been turned OFF.
This pilot feature can be activated or de-activated by the hand held remote control transmitter or the switch on the module. Instructions on following page.
D. OPERATION USING BATTERY POWER
When operating fireplace in this capacity, the only function available is flame modulation.
- This fireplace has an optional battery operation if electrical power is lost (see Page 45, Figure 16B). Position battery pack with four “AA” size batteries installed between valve and front of fireplace. This is the coolest location under firebox, ensuring longer battery life.
- Next locate the fireplace’s control module (see Page 45, Figure 16A). The “Remote/Off” slide switch on the back side of the module must be slid into the “Off” position to allow the battery pack to function.
- Once accomplished, the fireplace can be turned fully on or off using the On/Off Rocker Switch located on the front bracket of the valve assembly below.
NOTE: When in Battery Mode, the only functions available are turning the fireplace on or off.
No flame adjustments are available nor will the remote control be available for the fan, ember lights, thermostat, etc.
E. MATCHING SECURITY CODES
Before matching security codes make sure 120V AC is connected and powered to fireplace, and hand held remote control is installed with (2) batteries. It may be necessary to program main control module to LEARN the security code of the hand held remote control upon initial use, if batteries are replaced, or if a replacement remote control is purchased from your dealer.
- When matching security codes, be sure slide button on main control module is in REMOTE; the code will not “LEARN” if slide is in OFF.
- Program main control module to LEARN a new security code by pushing in LEARN button on main control module using a pencil point for 2 seconds and let go (you should hear a series of ‘beeps’ letting you know module is ready to learn a new code).
- Immediately press MODE button on hand held remote control (you should hear four ‘beeps’ in rapid succession in main control module, indicating remote control’s code has been programmed into the main control module). When an existing main control module is introduced to a new hand held remote control, the new security code will overwrite the old one.
If it ever becomes necessary to clear the memory from the handheld remote control, simply push and hold the LEARN button for 10 seconds (you should hear three long beeps in succession). You may now follow steps outlined above to ‘RE-LEARN’ security codes.
