Customer Question
I have a Lennox...

I have a Lennox direct vent elite series fireplace. The pilot lights fine. If I turn the flame switch to “on,” the flame lights. It will not work with either the wall control unit or the remote. The fireplace beeps when the remote is pressed, but nothing happens. It is a millivolt system.

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, what type of fireplace is this?

Gas direct vent elite series

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Depends on the problem

I​f the remote and wall unit are not working try syncing them and see if that resolves the problem. If not you may have a bad receiver unit.

Wall unit will not control flame either. It beeps when remote is pushed, but switching the wall unit manually does nothing either.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Flame comes on when manual control is set to on. Wall switch does not have any effect. It does beep when remote is pushed, but nothing happens.

I​s the wall unit a simple on/off switch or is this part of the remote/receiver/wall control system?
