Installation Tips
Remove the shipping screw from the pump box before proceeding with installation.
The igniter assembly must be installed before placing the stove.
If using a blower, install it first.
It is not necessary to install the blower first on the Endeavor, if applicable.
Wood placement is the key. Experiment with different sizes of wood and wood placement until you find a method that
works best for your wood quality and kindling.
The compressor assembly must be placed as shown in the instructions. Placing it on its side, near hot components, or
in a location where temperatures go below 40 F will void the warranty and may lead to premature failure.

the right side of the
pump box using the
“U” shaped cutout
above the igniter hose.
b. Route the cord through
the bottom of the

Igniter Operation
Warnings
MAKE SURE THE AIR CONTROL AND BYPASS (IF APPLICABLE) ARE OPEN. FAILURE TO
OPEN THESE CONTROLS MAY LEAD TO SMOKE ENTERING THE HOME.
DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR DURING IGNITION. THIS MAY LEAD TO SMOKE ENTERING
THE HOME.
DO NOT PLACE YOUR HAND NEAR THE IGNITER OPENING. THIS AREA BECOMES
EXTREMELY HOT AND MAY CAUSE SEVERE BURNS.
Operating Tips
The compressor assembly will turn on for 30 seconds when it is first plugged in. This is normal.
The igniter must be operated only with someone present. Improper operation may lead to smoke
entering the home.
Hardwood or un-seasoned wood may take longer to ignite. For this kind of wood you may need
to cut the kindling into smaller pieces.
Wood placement is the key. Experiment with different sizes of wood and wood placement until
you find a method that works best for your wood quality and kindling.
Make sure to place wood within 1” of the igniter opening.

Igniter Instructions
1. Gather a handful of kindling, approximately 1-1/2” in diameter. Place two sticks under the igniter in the
path of the air stream, as shown below. Stack the remaing kindling near the air opening, leaving a
minimum 1” gap to the igniter opening and plenty of space for air to pass through. The more surface
area the air flow contacts, the quicker the fire will start.
2. Make sure the air control and bypass are in the open position.
3. Close the stove door when all kindling is in place.

4. Press the igniter button to start the ignition process. The green indicator light on the button will turn on.
The igniter and compressor assembly will run for 15 minutes before shutting off automatically.
NOTE: If you need to turn off the igniter after starting the ignition process, press the GreenStart button a
second time. The system will turn off power to the igniter and the GreenStart button will flash. The pump
will continue to run for about seven minutes and then shut off.
BELLOWS FEATURE
If a bellows effect is desired (adding oxygen to the fire without cycling the igniter) simply push the
GreenStart button twice, which will start the pump-only mode. The bellows effect will stay on for 7
minutes, before the unit shuts down.
