Turning the Fireplace ON There are 2 easy ways to get started with your Valor fireplace – use either the standard handheld remote control or the optional Valor wall switch. When using your remote control, hold down the OFF and large flame button simultaneously. You will hear a beep, which starts the activation sequence – release the buttons at this point. Once the pilot light ignites, the flames will turn to full fire and remain in “Manual Mode”. When operating from your Valor wall switch, press the ON/OFF button and your pilot will ignite and turn the flame to high fire. Turning the Fireplace OFF Easily shut down your fireplace by pressing the OFF button on the remote or the ON/OFF button on the Valor wall switch.
