Installation
VENTiNg rEquirEmENTS
 install vent at clearances specified by the vent manufacturer.
 Do not connect the pellet vent to a vent serving any other appliance or stove.
 Do not install a flue damper in the exhaust venting system of this unit.
The following installation guidelines must be followed to ensure conformity with both the safety listing of this stove and
to local building codes. Do not use makeshift methods or compromise in the installation.
imPOrTANT! This unit is equipped with a negative draft system that pulls air through the burn pot and
pushes the exhaust out of the dwelling. If this unit is connected to a flue system other than the way explained
in this manual, it will not function properly.
mAximum VENTiNg DiSTANCE
Installation MUST include at least 3-feet of vertical pipe outside the home. This will create some natural draft to reduce the
possibility of smoke or odor during appliance shutdown and keep exhaust from causing a nuisance or hazard by exposing
people or shrubs to high temperatures. The maximum recommend vertical venting height is 12-feet for 3-inch type “PL”
vent. Total length of horizontal vent MUST NOT exceed 4-feet. This could cause back pressure. Use no more than 180
degrees of elbows (two 90-degree elbows, or two 45-degree and one 90-degree elbow, etc.) to maintain adequate draft.
PELLET VENT TyPE
A UL listed 3-inch or 4-inch type “PL” pellet vent exhaust system must be used for installation and attached to the pipe
connector provided on the back of the stove (use a 3-inch to 4-inch adapter for 4-inch pipe). Connection at back of
stove must be sealed using Hi-Temp RTV. Use 4-inch vent if the vent height is over 12-feet or if the installation is over
2,500 feet above sea level.
We recommend the use of Simpson Dura-Vent® or Metal-Fab® pipe (if you use other pipe, consult your local building
codes and/or building inspectors). Do not use Type-B Gas Vent pipe or galvanized pipe with this unit. The pellet vent
pipe is designed to disassemble for cleaning and should be checked several times during the burning season. Pellet
vent pipe is not furnished with the unit and must be purchased separately.
PELLET VENT iNSTALLATiON
The installation must include a clean-out tee to enable collection of fly ash and to permit periodic cleaning of the exhaust
system. 90-degree elbows accumulate fly ash and soot thereby reducing exhaust flow and performance of the stove.
Each elbow or tee reduces draft potential by 30% to 50%.
All joints in the vent system must be fastened by at least 3 screws, and all joints must be sealed with Hi-Temp RTV
silicone sealant to be airtight. The area where the vent pipe penetrates to the exterior of the home must be sealed with
silicone or other means to maintain the vapor barrier between the exterior and the interior of the home.
Vent surfaces can get hot enough to cause burns if touched by children. Noncombustible shielding or guards may be
required.
PELLET VENT TErmiNATiON
Do not terminate the vent in an enclosed or semi-enclosed area, such as; carport, garage, attic, crawl space, under a
sundeck or porch, narrow walkway, or any other location that can build up a concentration of fumes.
The termination must exhaust above the outside air inlet elevation.
The termination must not be located where it will become plugged by snow or other materials.
Do not terminate the venting into an existing steel or masonry chimney.

Installation
VENT TErmiNATiON CLEArANCES:
A) Minimum 4-foot (1.22m) clearance below or beside any door or window that opens.
B) Minimum 1-foot (0.3m) clearance above any door or window that opens.
C) Minimum 3-foot (0.91m) clearance from any adjacent building.
D) Minimum 7-foot (2.13m) clearance from any grade when adjacent to public walkways.
E) Minimum 2-foot (0.61m) clearance above any grass, plants, or other combustible materials.
F) Minimum 3-foot (0.91m) clearance from an forced air intake of any appliance.
G) Minimum 2-foot (0.61m) clearance below eves or overhang.
H) Minimum 1-foot (0.3m) clearance horizontally from combustible wall.
I) Must be a minimum of 3 foot (0.91m) above the roof and 2 foot (0.61m) above the highest point or the roof within
10 feet (3.05m).

Installation
ThrOugh ThE WALL iNSTALLATiON (RECOMMENDED INSTALLATION)
Canadian installations must conform to CAN/CSA-B365.
To vent the unit through the wall, connect the pipe adapter
to the exhaust motor adapter. If the exhaust adapter is at
least 18 in.(457mm) above ground level, a straight section
of pellet vent pipe can be used through the wall.
Your heater dealer should be able to provide you with
a kit that will handle most of this installation, which will
include a wall thimble that will allow the proper clearance
through a combustible wall. Once outside the structure,
a 3 in.(76mm) clearance should be maintained from the
outside wall and a clean out tee should be placed on the
pipe with a 90-degree turn away from the house. At this
point, a 3ft (0.91m) (minimum) section of pipe should be
added with a horizontal cap, which would complete the
installation (see FIGURE 7).
A support bracket should be placed just below the
termination cap or one every 4ft (1.22m) to make the
system more stable. If you live in an area that has heavy
snowfall, it is recommended that the installation be taller
than 3ft (0.91m) to get above the snowdrift line. This same
installation can be used if your heater is below ground level
by simply adding the clean-out section and vertical pipe
inside until ground level is reached. With this installation
you have to be aware of the snowdrift line, dead grass, and
leaves. We recommend a 3ft (0.91m) minimum vertical
rise on the inside or outside of the house.
FigurE 7
TYPICAL THROUGH THE WALL INSTALLATION
The “through the wall” installation is the least expensive and simplest installation. Never terminate the end vent under a
deck, in an alcove, under a window, or between two windows. We recommend Simpson Dura-Vent® or Metal-Fab® kits.
ThrOugh ThE rOOF/CEiLiNg iNSTALLATiON
When venting the heater through the ceiling, the pipe is connected the same as through the wall, except the clean-out
tee is always on the inside of the house, and a 3 in.(76mm) adapter is added before the clean-out tee.
You must use the proper ceiling support flanges and roof flashing (supplied by the pipe manufacturer; follow the pipe
manufacturer’s directions). It is important to note that if your vertical run of pipe is more than 15ft (4.57m), the pellet
vent pipe size should be increased to 4 in. (102mm) in diameter.
Do not exceed more than 4ft (1.22m) of pipe on a horizontal run and use as few elbows as possible. If an offset is
required, it is better to install 45-degree elbows rather than 90-degree elbows.
11
Installation
OuTSiDE Air SuPPLy (optional, unless installing in a mobile home)
Depending on your location and home construction, outside air may be necessary for optimal performance.
Metal pipe (solid or flexible) must be used for the outside air installation. PVC pipe is NOT approved and should NEVER
be used.
A wind shield over the termination of the outside air pipe or a 90-degree elbow or bend away from the prevailing winds
MUST be used when an outside air pipe is installed through the side of a building. The outside air termination MUST
be at least 1ft (0.305m) away from the exhaust system termination.
The outside air pipe on your heater is 2” (50.8mm) OD. The outside air connecting pipe must be at least 2” (50.8mm) ID.
The outside air connection used MUST NOT restrict the amount of air available to your heater. The outside air connecting
pipe must be as short and free of bends as possible, and it must fit over, not inside, the outside air connection to the heater.

home and must be installed using a UL listed ceiling fire stop and rain cap.
•
When moving your mobile home, all exterior venting must be removed while the mobile home is being relocated.
After relocation, all venting must be reinstalled and securely fastened.
•
Outside Air is mandatory for mobile home installation. See your dealer for purchasing.
•
Check with your local building officials as other codes may apply.

Control Panel
PANEL CONTROLS
The blowers and automatic fuel supply are controlled from a panel on the left side of
the appliance. The control panel functions are as follows:
A. ON/OFF SWITCH
•
When pushed the stove will automatically ignite. No other firestarter is necessary.
The igniter will stay on for at least 10 and up to 15 minutes, depending on when
Proof of Fire is reached. The fire should start in about 5 minutes.
•
The green light located above the On/Off button (in the On/Off box) will flash during
the ignition start-up period.
•
The Heat Level Advance is inoperable during the ignition start period. When the
green light continuously stays on the Heat Level Advance can be adjusted to
achieve the desired heat output.
NOTE: If the stove has been shut off, and you want to re-start it while it is still warm,
the “on/off” button must be held down for 2 seconds.
B. FUEL FEED SWITCH
•
When the “Fuel Feed” button is pushed and held down the stove will feed pellets
continuously into the burn pot.
•
While the stove’s auger system is feeding pellets the green light (in the “Fuel Feed”
box) will be on.
CAUTION: DO NOT USE THIS CONTROL DURING NORMAL OPERATION BECAUSE
IT COULD SMOTHER THE FIRE AND LEAD TO A DANGEROUS SITUATION.
C. HIGH FAN SWITCH
•
The room air fan speed varies directly with the feed rate. The “HIGH FAN” switch overrides this variable speed
function. It will set the room air blower speed to high at any feed rate setting.
•
When the “HIGH FAN” button is pushed the room air fan will switch to its highest setting.
•
When this button is pushed again the room air fan will return to its original setting based on the Heat Level Advance
setting.
D. RESET TRIM
Different size and quality pellet fuel may require adjustment of the “1” feed setting on the Heat Level Advance bar graph.
This is usually a one-time adjustment based on the fuel you are using. The “RESET TRIM” button when adjusted
will allow for 3 different feed rate settings for the #1 feed setting only. To adjust simply push the “RESET TRIM” button
while the stove is operating at setting “1” and watch the bar graph.
•
When the “1” & “3” lights are illuminated on the bar graph the low feed rate is at its “lowest” setting. (Approx. 0.9
pounds per hour)
•
When the “1” light is illuminated on the bar graph the low feed rate is at its “normal” setting.
•
When the “1” & “4” lights are illuminated on the bar graph the low feed rate is at its “highest” setting.
NOTE: When the stove is set on “1” the “reset trim” values will be shown on the Heat Level Advance bar graph. For
example if the Reset Trim is set to its lowest setting every time the stove is set to low the “1” and “3” lights will be
illuminated on the bar graph.
E. HEAT LEVEL ADVANCE
•
This button when pushed will set the pellet feed rate, hence the heat output of your stove. The levels of heat output
will incrementally change on the bar graph starting from level “1” to “4”.
NOTE: When dropping 3 or more heat level settings (4 to 1,) push the ‘High Fan’ button and allow the room air fan to
run at that setting for at least 5 minutes to prevent the stove from tripping the high temp thermodisc. If the high temp
thermodisc does trip see “SAFETy FEATurES”.

PrOPEr FuEL
ThiS STOVE iS APPrOVED FOr BurNiNg PELLETiZED WOOD FuEL ONLy! Factory-approved pellets are those
1/4” or 5/16” in diameter and not over 1” long. Longer or thicker pellets sometimes bridge the auger flights, which prevents
proper pellet feed. Burning wood in forms other than pellets is not permitted. It will violate the building codes for which the
stove has been approved and will void all warranties. The design incorporates automatic feed of the pellet fuel into the
fire at a carefully prescribed rate. Any additional fuel introduced by hand will not increase heat output but may seriously
impair the stoves performance by generating considerable smoke. Do not burn wet pellets. The stove’s performance
depends heavily on the quality of your pellet fuel. Avoid pellet brands that display these characteristics:
a. Excess Fines – “Fines” is a term describing crushed pellets or loose material that looks like sawdust or sand. Pellets
can be screened before being placed in hopper to remove most fines.
b. Binders – Some pellets are produced with materials to hold the together, or “bind” them.
c. High ash content – Poor quality pellets will often create smoke and dirty glass. They will create a need for more
frequent maintenance. You will have to empty the burn pot plus vacuum the entire system more often. Poor quality
pellets could damage the auger. USSC cannot accept responsibility for damage due to poor quality pellets.
PrE-STArT-uP ChECK
Remove burn pot, making sure it is clean and none of the air holes are plugged. Clean the firebox, and then reinstall
burn pot. Clean door glass if necessary (a dry cloth or paper towel is usually sufficient). Never use abrasive cleaners on
the glass or door. Check fuel in the hopper, and refill if necessary.
NOTE: The 5520 Hopper can hold up to 120 lbs. of pellets.
BuiLDiNg A FirE
Never use a grate or other means of supporting the fuel. Use only the burn pot supplied with this heater.
Hopper lid must be closed in order for the unit to feed pellets. If it is the first time you have started the unit, or anytime
the hopper has been emptied of pellets, it will be necessary to prime the auger. In order to prime the auger press and
hold the fuel feed button after starting the unit. Keep fuel feed button depressed until pellets begin to fall into the burn
pot, then release the fuel feed button and allow the unit to operate normally.
During the start up period:
1) DO NOT open the viewing door.
2) DO NOT open the damper more than 1/4”.
3) DO NOT add pellets to the burn pot by hand.
4) DO NOT use the Fuel Feed button (unless you are priming the auger after running out of pellets). A dangerous
condition could result.
NOTE: During the first few fires, your stove will emit an odor as the high temperature paint cures or becomes seasoned
to the metal. Maintaining smaller fires will minimize this. Avoid placing items on stove top during this period because
paint could be affected.

Operation
DAmPEr CONTrOL
The damper control rod on the stove’s lower left side adjusts the combustion air. This control is necessary due to the
varied burn characteristics of individual installations, different pellet brands and pellet feed rates. It allows you to improve
the efficiency of your stove. Providing correct combustion air will reduce the frequency of cleaning your glass door and
prevent the rapid buildup of creosote inside your stove and chimney.
You should adjust the damper based on the fire’s appearance. A low, reddish, dirty fire can be improved by pulling the
damper out slightly. A “blow torch” fire can be improved by pushing the damper in a bit.
As a general rule, on lower feed rate settings, the damper should be in farther. On higher feed rates, the damper should
be more open. Through trial and error, you will find the best setting. Consult your dealer if you need help.
NOTE: On “1”, damper should be either completely closed or out approximately 1/8” to 1/4”. If damper is out too far, it
can cause the fire to go out.
OPENiNg DOOr
If the door is opened while the stove is in operation it must be closed within 30 seconds or the stove will shut down. If
the stove shuts down push the “On/Off” button to re-start your stove.
rOOm Air FAN
When starting your stove the Room Air Fan will not come on until the stove’s heat exchanger warms up. This usually
takes about 10 minutes from start-up.
rE-STArTiNg A WArm STOVE
If the stove has been shut off, and you want to re-start it while it is still warm, the “on/off” button must be held down for 2 seconds.
iF STOVE ruNS OuT OF PELLETS
The fire goes out and the auger motor and blowers will run until the stove cools. This will take 30 to 45 minutes. After the
stove components stop running the “On/Off” and the BAR GRAPH lights stay on for 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes the
“3” light on the bar graph will flash and the “On/Off” light will go off. To restart, refill hopper and press “Fuel Feed” button
until pellets begin to fall into burn pot. Press “On/Off” button.
rEFuELiNg
 The hopper and stove top will be hot during operation; therefore, you should always use some type of hand
protection when refueling your stove.
 Never place your hand near the auger while the stove is in operation.
We recommend that you not let the hopper drop below ¼ full.
KEEP HOPPER LID CLOSED AT ALL TIMES EXCEPT WHEN REFILLING. DO NOT OVERFILL HOPPER.
ShuTDOWN PrOCEDurE
Turning your stove off is a matter of pressing the “On/Off” control panel switch. The red light will go out. The blowers will
continue to operate until internal firebox temperatures have fallen to a preset level.
WArNiNg: Never shut down this unit by unplugging it from the power source.
SAFETy FEATurES
a. Your stove is equipped with a high temperature thermodisc. This safety switch has two functions.
1. To recognize an overheat situation in the stove and shut down the fuel feed or auger system.
2. In case of a malfunctioning convection blower, the high-temperature thermodisc will automatically shut down the
auger, preventing the stove from overheating.
NOTE: On some units, once tripped, like a circuit breaker, the reset button will have to be pushed before restarting your
stove. On other units the thermodisc has no reset button and will reset itself once the stove has cooled. The manufacturer
recommends that you call your dealer if this occurs as this may indicate a more serious problem. A service call may be
required.
b. If the combustion blower fails, an air pressure switch will automatically shut down the auger.
NOTE: Opening the stove door for more than 30 seconds during operation will cause enough pressure change to activate
the air switch, shutting the fuel feed off. Close the door and press “On/Off” button to continue operation of your stove.

Maintenance
 Failure to clean and maintain this unit as indicated can result in poor performance and safety hazards.
 unplug your stove’s electrical cord prior to removing the back panel or opening the exhaust system for any
inspection, cleaning, or maintenance work.
 Never perform any inspections, cleaning, or maintenance on a hot stove.
 Do not operate stove with broken glass , leakage of flue gas may result.
ExhAuST SySTEm
Creosote Formation – When any wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other organic vapors, which combine with
expelled moisture to form creosote. The creosote vapors condense in the relatively cool chimney flue or a newly started
fire or from a slow-burning fire. As a result, creosote residue accumulates on the flue lining. When ignited, this creosote
makes an extremely hot fire, which may damage the chimney or even destroy the house. Despite their high efficiency,
pellet stoves can accumulate creosote under certain conditions.
Fly Ash – This accumulates in the horizontal portion of an exhaust run. Though non-combustible, it may impede the
normal exhaust flow. It should therefore be periodically removed.
Inspection and Removal – The chimney connector and chimney should be inspected annually or per ton of pellets to
determine if a creosote or fly ash build-up has occurred. If creosote has accumulated, it should be removed to reduce
the risk of a chimney fire. Inspect the system at the stove connection and at the chimney top. Cooler surfaces tend to
build creosote deposits quicker, so it is important to check the chimney from the top as well as from the bottom. The
creosote should be removed with a brush specifically designed for the type of chimney in use. A qualified chimney sweep
can perform this service. It is also recommended that before each heating season the entire system be professionally
inspected, cleaned and, if necessary, repaired. To clean the chimney, disconnect the vent from the stove.
iNTEriOr ChAmBErS
Periodically remove and clean the burn pot and the area inside the burn pot housing. In particular it is advisable to
clean out the holes in the burn pot to remove any build up that may prevent air from moving through the burn pot freely.
Remove the two(2) plates on each side of the burn pot housing and clean out that rear chamber.
If a vacuum is used to clean your stove, we suggest using a vacuum designed for ash removal. Some regular vacuum
cleaner (i.e. shop vacs) may leak ash into the room.
ASh DiSPOSAL
Ashes should be placed in a metal container with a tight fitting lid. The closed container of ashes should be placed on
a noncombustible floor or on the ground, well away from all combustible materials, pending final disposal. If the ashes
are disposed of by burial in soil or otherwise locally dispersed, they should be retained in the closed container until all
cinders have been thoroughly cooled. The container shall not be used for other trash or waste disposal.
ChECK AND CLEAN ThE hOPPEr
Check the hopper periodically to determine if there is any sawdust or pellets that are sticking to the hopper surface.
Clean as needed.
DOOr AND gLASS gASKETS
Inspect the main door and glass window gaskets periodically. The main door may need to be removed to have frayed,
broken, or compacted gaskets replaced by your authorized dealer. The glass gasket has a gap at the bottom for the
airwash.
BLOWEr mOTOrS
Clean the air holes on the motors of both the exhaust and distribution blowers annually. Remove the exhaust blower
from the exhaust duct and clean out the internal fan blades as part of your fall start-up.
PAiNTED SurFACES
Painted surfaces may be wiped down with a damp cloth. If scratches appear, or you wish to renew your paint, contact
your authorized dealer to obtain a can of suitable high-temperature paint.
17
Maintenance
gLASS - Cleaning, removal and replacement of Broken Door glass
Cleaning - We recommend using a high quality glass cleaner. Should a build up of creosote or carbon accumulate, you
may wish to use 000 steel wool and water to clean the glass. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners. DO NOT perform the
cleaning while the glass is HOT. ,
In the event you need to replace the glass, remove the six(6) screws and glass retainers. While wearing leather gloves
(or any other gloves suitable for handling broken glass), carefully remove any loose pieces of glass from the door frame.
Dispose of all broken glass properly. ONLY high temperature ceramic glass of the correct size and thickness may be used.
DO NOT substitute alternative materials for the glass. Contact your authorized dealer to obtain this glass. Re-install the
new glass by re-attaching the retainers and screws, careful not to overtighten the screws for this could damage the glass.
DO NOT abuse the door glass by striking, slamming or similar trauma. Do not operate the stove with the glass removed,
cracked or broken.
FALL STArT uP
Prior to starting the first fire of the heating season, check the outside area around the exhaust and air intake systems
for obstructions. Clean and remove any fly ash from the exhaust venting system. Clean any screens on the exhaust
system and on the outside air intake pipe. Turn all of the controls on and make sure that they are working properly. This
is also a good time to give the entire stove a good cleaning throughout.
SPriNg ShuTDOWN
After the last burn in the spring, remove any remaining pellets from the hopper and the auger feed system. Scoop out
the pellets and then run the auger until the hopper is empty and pellets stop flowing (this can be done by pressing the
“ON” button with the viewing door open). Vacuum out the hopper. Thoroughly clean the burn pot, and firebox. It may
be desirable to spray the inside of the cleaned hopper with an aerosol silicone spray if your stove is in a high humidity
area. The exhaust system should be thoroughly cleaned.

Trouble Shooting Guide
When your stove acts out of the ordinary, the first reaction is to call for help. This guide may save time and money by
enabling you to solve simple problems yourself. Problems encountered are often the result of only five factors: 1) poor
fuel; 2) poor operation or maintenance; 3) poor installation; 4) component failure; 5) factory defect. You can usually solve
those problems related to 1 and 2. Your dealer can solve problems relating to 3, 4 and 5. Refer to diagrams on page 17
to help locate indicated parts.
For the sake of troubleshooting and using this guide to assist you, you should look at your heat level setting to see which
light is flashing.
 Disconnect the power cord before performing any maintenance! NOTE: Turning the ON/OFF Switch to ”OFF”
does not disconnect all power to the electrical components of the stove.
 Never try to repair or replace any part of the stove unless instructions for doing so are given in this manual.
All other work should be done by a trained technician.
STOVE ShuTS OFF AND ThE #2 LighT FLAShES
Possible Causes:
Possible remedies: (unplug stove first when possible)
1.
Airflow switch hose or stove attachment pipes for hose are blocked.
Unhook air hose from the air switch and blow through it. If air flows
freely, the hose and tube are fine. If air will not flow throw the hose,
use a wire coat hanger to clear the blockage.
2.
The air inlet, burnpot, interior combustion air chambers, combustion
blower, or exhaust pipe are blocked with ash or foreign material.
Follow all cleaning procedures in the maintenance section of the owner’s
manual.
3.
The firebox is not properly sealed.
Make sure the door is closed and that the gasket is in good shape. If the
ash door has a latch, make sure the ash door is properly latched and the
gasket is sealing good. If the stove has just a small hole for the ashes
to fall through under the burnpot, make sure the slider plate is in place
to seal off the firebox floor.
4.
Vent pipe is incorrectly installed.
Check to make sure vent pipe installation meets criteria in owner’s manual.
5.
The airflow switch wire connections are bad.
Check the connectors that attach the gray wires to the air switch.
6.
The gray wires are pulled loose at the Molex connector on the wiring Check to see if the gray wires are loose at the Molex connector.
harness.
7.
Combustion blower failure.
With the stove on, check to see if the combustion blower is running. If it
is not, you will need to check for power going to the combustion blower.
It should be a full current. If there is power, the blower is bad. If there
is not, see #8.
8.
Control board not sending power to combustion blower.
If there is no current going to the combustion blower, check all wire
connections. If all wires are properly connected, you have a bad control
board.
9.
Control board not sending power to air switch.
There should be a 5-volt current (approximately) going to the air switch
after the stove has been on for 30 seconds.
10. Air switch has failed (very rare).
To test the air switch, you will need to disconnect the air hose from
the body of the stove. With the other end still attached to the air
switch, very gently suck on the loose end of the hose (you may
want to remove the hose entirely off the stove and the air switch
first and make sure it is clear). If you hear a click, the air switch
is working. BE CAREFUL TOO MUCH VACUUM CAN DAMAGE
THE AIR SWITCH.

Trouble Shooting Guide
STOVE ShuTS OFF AND ThE #3 LighT FLAShES
Possible Causes:
Possible remedies: (unplug stove first when possible)
1.
The hopper is out of pellets.
Refill the hopper.
2.
The air damper is too far open for a low feed setting.
If burning on the low setting, you may need to close the damper all the
way (push the knob in so it touches the side of the stove).
3.
The burnpot is not pushed completely to the rear of the firebox.
Make sure that the air intake collar on the burnpot is touching the rear
wall of the firebox.
4.
The burnpot holes are blocked.
Remove the burnpot and thoroughly clean it.
5.
The air inlet, the interior chambers, or exhaust system has a partial
blockage.
Follow all cleaning procedures in the maintenance section of the owner’s
manual.
6.
The hopper safety switch has failed or hopper is open.
When operating the unit, be sure the hopper lid is closed so that the hopper
safety switch will activate. Check the wires leading from the hopper safety
switch to the control panel and auger motor for secure connections. Use
a continuity tester to test the hopper safety switch; replace if necessary.
7.
The auger shaft is jammed.
Start by emptying the hopper. Then remove the auger motor by removing
the auger pin. Remove the auger shaft inspection plate in the hopper
so that you can see the auger shaft. Gently lift the auger shaft straight
up so that the end of the auger shaft comes up out of the bottom auger
bushing. Next, remove the two nuts that hold the top auger biscuit in.
Then rotate the bottom end of the auger shaft up towards you until you can
lift the shaft out of the stove. After you have removed the shaft, inspect
it for bent flights, burrs, or broken welds. Remove any foreign material
that might have caused the jam. Also, check the auger tube for signs of
damage such as burrs, rough spots, or grooves cut into the metal that
could have caused a jam.
8.
The auger motor has failed.
Remove the auger motor from the auger shaft and try to run the unit. If
the motor will turn the shaft is jammed on something. If the motor will
not turn, the motor is bad.
9.
The Proof of Fire (POF) thermodisc has malfunctioned.
Temporarily bypass the POF thermodisc by disconnecting the two brown
wires and connecting them with a short piece of wire. Then plug the stove
back in. If the stove comes on and works, you need to replace the POF
thermodisc. This is for testing only. DO NOT LEAVE THE THERMODISC
BYPASSED. Your blowers will never shut off and if the fire went out the
auger will continue to feed pellets until the hopper is empty if you leave
the POF thermodisc bypassed.
10. The high limit thermodisc has tripped or is defective.
Wait for the stove to cool for about 30 - 45 minutes. Locate the High Limit
thermodisc and press the reset button on the back of it. If the heater will
not restart, check the thermodisc to see if it’s bad. To test if the thermodisc
is bad, you can bypass it as described previously for the POF thermodisc.
11. The fuse on the control board has blown.
Remove the control board. On the back there is one fuse. If it appears
to be bad, replace it with a 5 Amp 125 Volt fuse. Plug the stove back in
and try to run the unit.
12. The control board is not sending power to the POF thermodisc or
other auger system components.
There should be a 5-volt (approximately) current going to the POF
thermodisc after the stove has been on for 10 minutes.

Possible Causes:
Possible remedies: (unplug stove first when possible)
1.
Air damper open too far for ignition.
Push the air damper in closer to the side of the stove for startup. In some
situations it may be necessary to have the damper completely closed
for ignition to take place. After there is a flame, the damper can then be
adjusted for the desired feed setting.
2.
Blockage in igniter tube or inlet for igniter tube.
Find the igniter housing on the backside of the firewall. The air intake
hole is a small hole located on bottom side of the housing. Make sure it
is clear. Also, look from the front of the stove to make sure there is not
any debris around the igniter element inside of the igniter housing.
3.
The burnpot is not pushed completely to the rear of the firebox.
Make sure that the air intake collar on the burnpot is touching the rear
wall of the firebox.
4.
Bad igniter element.
Put power directly to the igniter element. Watch the tip of the igniter from
the front of the stove. After about 2 minutes the tip should glow. If it does
not, the element is bad.
5.
The control board is not sending power to the igniter.
Check the voltage going to the igniter during startup. It should be a full
current. If the voltage is lower than full current, check the wiring. If the
wiring checks out good, the board is bad.

Possible Causes:
Possible remedies: (unplug stove first when possible)
1.
There is a leak in the vent pipe system.
Inspect all vent pipe connections. Make sure they are sealed with RTV
silicone that has a temperature rating on 500 degree F or higher. Also,
seal joints with UL-181-AP foil tape. Also, make sure the square to round
adapter piece on the combustion blower has been properly sealed with
the same RTV.
2.
The gasket on the combustion blower has gone bad.
Inspect both gaskets on the combustion blower to make sure they are
in good shape.
Because it is a wood-burning device, your pellet heater may emit a faint wood-burning odor. If this increases beyond
normal, or if you notice an unusual soot build-up on walls or furniture, check your exhaust system carefully for leaks.
All joints should be properly sealed. Also clean your stove, following instructions in “MAINTENANCE”. If problem persists, contact your dealer.

1.
Stove or vent pipe is dirty, which restricts airflow through the burnpot.
Follow all cleaning procedure in the maintenance section of the owner’s
manual.
2.
Vent pipe installed improperly.
Check to make sure the vent pipe has been installed according to the
criteria in the owner’s manual.
3.
Air damper is set too far in (closed) for a higher setting.
Pull the damper knob farther out away from the side of the stove and try
to burn the unit again.
4.
Burnpot holes are blocked.
Remove the burnpot and thoroughly clean it.
5.
Air damper is broken.
Visually inspect the damper assembly. Make sure the damper plate is
attached to the damper rod. When the damper rod is moved the plate
should move with it.
6.
Blockage in air intake pipe.
Visually inspect the air intake pipe that leads into the burnpot for foreign
material.
7.
Circuit board malfunction.
Time the fuel feed light at each setting (after the stove has completed the
startup cycle). Make sure the times match the auger timing chart. If the
auger motor runs constantly, the board is bad.
8.
Combustion blower is not spinning fast enough.
Test the RPM on the blower after the blades have been cleaned. The
RPM should be approximately 3000 RPM.
9.
Bad Pellets.
The brand of pellets or the batch of pellets that are being used may be of
poor quality. If possible, try a different brand of pellets. You might also
want to try a brand that is made from a different type of wood (softwood
vs. hardwood). Different woods have different characteristics when
being burned.
