WHAT A DISASTER!! LET ME HELP YOU GET SOME HEAT.

TROUBLE lighting your gas fireplace with all of the power outages?

TIP. MY #1 advice is to change the batteries in the hand remote AND THE BLACK RECEIVER IN THE BOTTOM OF THE FIREPLACE!

Starting the pilot light.
Napoleon. Open the bottom of the fireplace, look for the knob with OFF/PILOT/ON and turn it counter clockwise to the pilot position. Push it in, hold and REPEATEDLY press the sparker (like a BBQ) until you see a flame. Hold pilot light knob in for 30 seconds and release. The flame should hold. No flame, REPEAT.

Turn the knob counter clockwise to the ON position. Press the remote to ON or turn the thermostat up.

NO FIRE, change the batteries in 1 The HAND REMOTE and 2 the RECEIVER BOX IN THE BOTTOM OF THE FIREPLACE.

VALOR. STARTING PILOT. On the hand remote. Press the ORANGE DOT and The LARGE FLAME KEY (UP KEY) at the SAME TIME for 4 seconds and release. WAIT. TAKES 30 seconds to start to full flame. NO flame? Wait one minute and press the two keys again, SAME TIME,

NOT WORKING? Make sure the gas valve in basement is turned on and CHANGE BATTERIES. HAND RECEIVER--1 x 9 volt. In bottom of fireplace, install 4xAA BATTERIES IN EITHER BLACK CONTROL MODULE or small FLAT BATTERY CASE. TRY starting again.

Should work. Capitals to emphasize, not SHOUT. My heart goes out to those affected by the storm, CR.
