My manual wasn't the owner's manual. The builder's contractor left the installation instruction book I guess thinking it was the manual. I did find my model manual (I think) online and it only said that you could light the fireplace by installing D batteries but then no other instructions. So thanks, I will try this.

I guess push comes to shove, I could call the number for Heatilator.
Yep, that's exactly what the battery is for. Also, if my memory serves me correctly, there is a plug for AC underneath in the same area where the battery goes. You should unplug this when you install the batteries. I would check my own fireplace and refresh my memory, but I'm on a business trip right now and won't be home for a few weeks.

Good luck, and try not to burn down the neighborhood.
