    Yes remotes can fail.
    They sometimes can also just need to be reprogrammed to the receiver box (learned). Much like a garage door opener.

    This is why you buy fireplaces at a hearth dealer, not a lumber yard.

    Try to find a real fireplace dealer near you and give them a call. They can probably get you a new remote and ship it.

    Or post a picture of your remote handheld and a model number off the sticker on it. Maybe a VC dealer on here who can find a part for you.

    not that familiar with that remote, but doesn't it use t-tpiles(honeywell?)

    does the stove work perfectly when controlled manually at the valve??

    i probably have the comfort control valve troubleshooting booklet around here somewhere...

    No other remote control works with the Comfort Control system. If you don't have a local Vermont Castings dealer, a Majestic dealer will also have the information you need.
