Gazco 8490 Remote Repair Details

Manufacturer : Gazco

Model : 8490

Customers Fault Description : The remote hardly ever works. The fire has just been serviced and I’ve replaced the batteries in the remote.

Remote Fixer Repair Response (see below) :

This fireplace control arrived safely and on testing was found to be dead.

 On opening the remote a mass of corrosion was found around the main IC (see image).  The print was reworked and the IR led replaced which restored full functionality.
