I gave a gas fired free standing fireplace with a remote control that has failed for the second time. My luck the serial number on the stove is 000004, this is a Jotul brand of stove. The remote control brains for the stove is $600.00 and I don't want to spend that kind of money on something that has failed twice now in 8 years. I am looking at a safety pilot kit for a fireplace gas log. This has a standing pilot and a on off control valve and a thermal couple incase I loose the pilot. There should be no problem in connecting the gas line from the controller to the burner in the stove. The stove has a circulating fan and I would most likely control this with a thermal switch to turn the fan on once the heat is up on the stove. Any thoughts good or bad? Has anyone done this?
