Dear Sir or Madam,
thank you for choosing our Pellbox SCF.
Before using your insert, please read this booklet carefully: it explains how to get the most from all its features in complete safety.
Please remember that the 1st ignition must be carried out by a TAC (authorized technical assistance centre), which verifies the
installation and completes the guarantee.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable for any damage which may derive from using the insert after incorrect installation, incorrect
maintenance or misuse.
SAFETY INFORMATION
• The PELLBOX SCF insert is designed to heat the room it is installed in by radiation and by air movement from the front grilles. It
may also heat an adjoining room by air movement from an outlet found on the right side panel. The heat is generated by automatic
pellet combustion in the firebox.
• The only risks which may derive from use of the insert are linked with non-compliance with the installation instructions, direct
contact with live electrical parts (inside) or with the fire or hot parts (glass, pipes and hot air outlet), and the introduction of foreign
substances. Only use pellets as fuel in the firebox.
• If components fail, the insert is fitted with safety devices which shut it down. This must be allowed to happen without interference.
• For correct operation, the insert must be installed in compliance with the instructions on page 8 and the door must not be opened
during operation: combustion is managed automatically so no manual operations are needed.
• Never put foreign substances in the firebox or hopper.
• Do not use flammable products to clean the smoke ducts.
• Firebox and hopper components must only be cleaned using a vacuum cleaner.
• The glass must be cleaned when COLD with a special product (e.g. GlassKamin) and cloth. Do not clean when hot.
• Make sure the insert is installed and ignited by a qualified TAC (technical assistance centre), which must also complete the
guarantee and take responsibility for correct installation.
• During insert operation, the outlet pipes and door reach high temperatures.
• Do not keep objects that are not able to withstand heat in the immediate vicinity of the insert.
• NEVER use liquid fuels to light the insert or rekindle embers.
• Do not block ventilation openings in the room where the insert is installed or air inlets in the insert itself.
• Do not get the insert wet, and do not put wet hands near electrical parts.
• Do not fit reducers on the smoke outlet pipes.
• The insert must be installed in a suitable place as regards fire safety, and provided with all the facilities (power supply and outlets)
it requires for correct safe operation.

OPERATING PRINCIPLE
PELLBOX SCF is a pellet-fired insert that manages
pellet combustion electronically.
The fuel (pellets) is taken from the storage hopper (A)
and delivered to the combustion chamber (D) by a
screw feeder (B) driven by a gearmotor (C).
The pellets are ignited by hot air produced by a
heating element (E) which is drawn into the
combustion chamber by a centrifugal fan (F).
The combustion smoke produced is drawn out of the
firebox by the same centrifugal fan (F), and expelled
from the nozzle (G) at the bottom rear of the insert.
Air is blown into the hollow space at the back of the
firebox by a fan (H), where it is heated before coming
out into the room from the front grille (I) and into an
adjoining room through appropriate piping (fig. along
side).
The
amount
of
fuel
and
the
smoke
extraction/combustion air supply are controlled by an
electronic circuit board (L) in order to achieve highly
efficient fuel consumption.
A display-control panel (M) is fitted on the front
under the door which allows all the operating stages to
be managed and displayed.
The same steps can be managed using the remote
control.
The pellet hopper is at the top of the insert.
The hopper is filled through a drawer (N) found at the
front above the hopper itself.
The internal structure of the insert is completely made
of cast iron.
Use the cold grip provided (component 44 in the
exploded view) to open the insert door.
–
Fit the two air circulation grilles (36 x 9 cm)
provided on the front and/or right side of the
fireplace (looking from the front).

NOTES on fuel.
Pellbox SCF is designed to burn pellets.
Pellets are small 6 mm diameter (approx.) fuel cylinders made from sawdust pressed at high pressure without adhesives or other
foreign material.
They are sold in 15 kg bags.
In order NOT to jeopardize insert operation, do NOT burn other substances. The use of other materials (including wood), which
can be detected by laboratory analyses, invalidates the guarantee.
EdilKamin has designed, tested and programmed its products to perform best with pellets with the following characteristics:
diameter: 6 millimetres
maximum length: 40 mm
maximum moisture content: 8%
heat output: 4300 kcal/kg (at least)
If pellets with different characteristics are used, the insert will need recalibrating (similar to the initial calibration carried out by
the TAC - technical assistance centre - upon first ignition).
Use of unsuitable pellets may lead to: a decrease in efficiency; operating anomalies; stoppages due to clogging, dirty glass,
unburnt fuel, etc.
Pellets may be simply analysed just by looking at them.
Good: smooth, regular lengths, not very dusty.
Poor-quality: with horizontal and vertical splits, a lot of dust, highly variable lengths and mixed with foreign matter.

SAFETY DEVICES
THERMOCOUPLE: on the smoke outlet. It
measures the smoke temperature.
It controls the ignition, operating and shutdown
stages according to the parameters set.
AIR FLOW SENSOR: on the intake duct. It
trips when the flow of combustion air is not
correct, therefore causing low pressure
problems in the smoke circuit.
SAFETY THERMOSTAT: it trips if the
temperature inside the stove is too high. It
stops pellet loading, thus causing the stove to
go out.
PELLET LOADING
A convenient front drawer allows easy pellet loading without
having to remove the firebox from its housing, thus making it
absolutely safe in compliance with EN 14785 standards.

ASSEMBLY AND INSTALLATION (TAC - technical assistance centre)
Refer to the local regulations in the country of use for anything not expressly shown. In Italy, refer to UNI standard
10683/2005, along with any regional or local health authority regulations. If the insert is to be installed in a block of
flats, consult the block administration before installing.
COMPATIBILITY CHECK WITH OTHER DEVICES
The insert must NOT be installed in the same room as extractor fans or type B gas equipment.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTION CHECK (THE PLUG MUST BE IN AN ACCESSIBLE PLACE)
The insert is fitted with an electrical power cord for connection to a 230 V 50 Hz socket, preferably protected with a
thermal-magnetic circuit breaker. Voltage variations of greater than 10% may impair insert operation (fit a suitable
residual current circuit breaker if not already installed). The electrical system must comply with the law; in particular
make sure the earth circuit is in working order. The power supply line must have a suitable cross-section for the
equipment rating.
FIRE SAFETY DISTANCES AND LOCATION
The insert must be level for correct operation.
Check the load-bearing capacity of the floor.
The insert must be installed in compliance with the following safety conditions:
- minimum safety distance at the sides and back from medium-level flammable materials: 40 cm
- easily flammable materials must not be located less than 80 cm from the front of the insert
If it is impossible to comply with the distances given above, technical/building measures must be taken to avoid all fire
risks.
If the smoke outlet pipe is connected to walls made of wood or other flammable materials, it must be insulated with
ceramic fibre or other materials with similar characteristics.
AIR INTAKE
An outside air intake with cross section of at least 80 cm2 must be provided behind the insert to ensure sufficient air for
combustion.
Alternatively the air intake must be located in the room where the insert is installed and two suitable intake grilles must
be provided in the structure built around the insert.
It is advisable to ventilate the inside of the building work around the hood with air input from below, which leaves
through the grilles fitted at the top by convection, thus allowing heat recovery and preventing excessive overheating.
SMOKE OUTLET
The insert must have its own smoke outlet (it must not discharge into flues shared with other devices).
The smoke leaves the insert through the 8 cm diameter pipe on the cover.
The insert smoke outlet must be connected with the outside using suitable steel pipes, without obstructions
The pipe seals must be air-tight. To seal and insulate (if necessary) the pipes, material that withstands up to 300°C must
be used (silicone or high temperature mastic).
The horizontal sections may be up to 2 m long. Up to two bends with maximum curvature of 90° may be included.
If the smoke outlet does not end in a flue, a vertical section with wind guard at the end is essential (refer to UNI
standard 10683/2005). The vertical duct section may be indoor or outdoor. If the smoke duct* is outdoor, it must be
suitably insulated.
If the smoke duct* ends in a flue, the flue must be authorized for solid fuel. If it is more than 150 mm in diameter, it
must be renewed by inserting an internal pipe and sealing the smoke outlet from the brickwork.
All sections of the smoke duct* must be inspectable. If it is fixed, cleaning inspection openings must be provided.
Possible installation layouts are shown in figure 2 (A, B, C and D) on p. 9.

CHANNELLING
The insert has an opening on the left side (see location p. 7
DIMENSIONS) to channel hot air into an adjoining room or
the same room as the fireplace using a specific optional kit
(No. 7, cod. n. 290420) consisting of:
• hose clamp
• 3 m long Ø 10 flexible hose
• nozzle
It is important to remember the importance of suitable air tube
insulation to prevent heat dispersion and air cooling.
Illustrative picture
Avoid bends in the tube itself as far as possible. The
channelling must not be plugged to avoid overheating. The air must in any case be released into the room where the
insert is found or into an adjacent room.
NOTES ON COVERING ASSEMBLY
Insert
To decide the exact location of Pellbox, the type of covering it will be completed with must be considered.
The insert must be positioned in a different way according to the model chosen (consult the assembly instructions
provided in the packaging of each covering).
During installation, always check plumb and level.
Fasten the supporting frame provided to the floor, with plugs, in order to prevent possible overturning (see fig. 3, p. 10)
when the firebox door is opened for maintenance.
Coverings and structure around the hood, and their ventilation
Before fitting the covering, make sure the connections, controls and all moving parts work correctly.
This check must be done with the fireplace on and working steadily for a few hours, so that any necessary corrective
operations may be carried out before covering the insert.
Consequently, finishing operations, such as building work around the hood, covering assembly, erection of pilasters,
painting, etc., must only be carried out if the tests are passed.
EdilKamin is in no case liable for costs deriving from the removal of these works or their rebuilding, even if it is
necessary in order to replace faulty parts.
Wooden parts must be protected with fire retardant panels, not come into contact with the insert itself, and be a suitable
distance from it (at least 1 cm so that air may flow and prevent heat build-up).
The structure around the hood may be built of fire retardant panels made of plasterboard or sheets of plaster; air
circulation grilles must be provided as previously described when these are built.
IT IS ESSENTIAL TO ASSURE AIR REPLENISHMENT
WITH THE TWO 36 X 9 CM GRILLES PROVIDED
ON THE FRONT AND/OR ON THE RIGHT SIDE
(looking at the fireplace from the front)
Besides the above, bear in mind the instructions in sections 4.4 and 4.7 of UNI standard 10683/2005 "insulation,
finishes and safety recommendations".
NOTE
If you do not wish to channel hot air into an adjacent room, it must in any case be channelled into the room
where the firebox is installed.
Do NOT channel hot air into the building work around the hood or covering since this would lead to dangerous
overheating.

Press the menu key on the remote control for two seconds and scroll through the items using the +/- keys until "ADJPELLET" appears on the display.
Confirm this item by pressing the menu key. The pellet load setting appears. Decreasing the setting decreases the pellet
load; increasing the setting increases the pellet load. This function may be useful if the type of pellet the insert has been
calibrated for is changed, thus making load adjustment necessary.
If adjusting this setting is not sufficient, contact the TAC (technical assistance centre) for a new operating setup.
14
Note on flame variability
Any variations in the state of the flame depend on the type of pellet used, the normal variability associated with solid
fuels and the periodic automatic combustion chamber cleaning (which does NOT replace the essential cold vacuumcleaning by the user before ignition).
LOW FUEL WARNING
The Pellbox SCF insert has an electronic function which detects the amount of pellets left in the hopper.
The detection system integrated into the electronic circuit board monitors how many hours and kilos are left until the
pellets run out.
For correct system operation, it is important that the following procedure is followed during the first ignition (by a
TAC).
First ignition/testing (by a TAC)
The insert must be installed pursuant to point 3.21 of UNI standard 10683.
This standard describes the operations to be carried out on the field in order to check correct system operation.
Low system pellets
Before starting the system up, it is necessary to fill the hopper with a bag of pellets and use the PELLBOX until the
loaded fuel is used up.
This is necessary in order to run the system in briefly.
After this, it is possible to fill the hopper completely and start the PELLBOX up.
During operation, the words “Low Fuel” flash on the display when it is possible to load a whole new 15 kg bag of
pellets.
After pouring the bag in, it is necessary to add the 15 kilos to the memory.
To do this, proceed as follows:
1.
2.
3.
press the “Menu” key (for about 3-4 seconds) until the word “Clock” appears.
press the “+” key until the “Low pellet level” message disappears.
press the “Menu” key to bring up the next screen, than use the “+” key to bring the figure (*) up to the number
of kilos loaded (15 kg in the case of this example).

The chimney pots and smoke ducts connected to solid fuel devices must be cleaned once a year (check whether there are
regulations on the subject in the country of installation). If inspection and regular cleaning are not carried out, the
probability of a chimney pot fire increases. In the event of a chimney pot fire, proceed as follows:
do not use water to extinguish;
empty the pellet hopper;
contact specialist staff after the accident before starting up again.
C
POSSIBLE CAUSES OF SHUTDOWN
Information that may appear on the display in the event of shutdown:
1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
No depression: shutdown due to low pressure
No expulsion: shutdown due to a fault detected by the smoke exhaust motor sensor
No fire: shutdown due to a drop in smoke temperature
No start: shutdown due to incorrect smoke temperature during ignition
Power failure: shutdown due to power failure
Termoc broken: shutdown due to thermocouple failure or disconnection
Over temp: shutdown when the maximum smoke temperature set is exceeded.
The message is displayed until the 0/1 key on the panel is pressed
Do not restart the insert until the problem has been looked into and the cause removed.
To start the insert up again after a shutdown, let the shutdown procedure end
(600 seconds marked by a beep) then press the 0/1 key.
Never unplug the insert while it is shutting down due to problems.
It is important to report what the panel says to the TAC (technical assistance centre).
NOTE
After 2500 kg of pellets are consumed, the display shows the word "service”
The insert works, but you should contact an authorized TAC for special maintenance.
16
ADVICE IN THE EVENT OF PROBLEMS
1) No Depression (this trips if the flow sensor detects insufficient combustion air flow).
The flow may be insufficient because the door is open, the door does not close properly (e.g. bad seal), there is an air
intake or smoke extraction problem, the combustion chamber is clogged, or the flow sensor is dirty (clean with dry air)
Check flow sensor threshold (in parameters).
The low pressure alarm may also occur during ignition.
2) No Expulsion (this trips if the smoke extraction speed sensor detects a fault)
- Check smoke extractor operation (speed sensor connection)
- Make sure the smoke duct is clean
3) No fire (this trips if the thermocouple detects a smoke temperature lower than the value set, which it interprets as the
absence of flames)
There may be no flames because
- there are no pellets
- too many pellets have smothered the flames
the maximum temperature thermostat has tripped (this is very unusual since it would only trip if there was excessive
smoke temperature)
4) No start (this trips if no flames appear or the start-up temperature is not reached within a maximum of 15 minutes).
There are two distinct cases:
The flame does NOT appear
Check:
- combustion chamber position and cleanliness
- if the heating element is working
- room temperature (if lower than 3°C) and damp. Try to
light with a firelighter.
Flames appear, but after the word "Start", the
message "Start Failed" appears
Check:
- if the thermocouple is working
- start-up temperature setting in the parameters.
5) Power failure
Check the electrical connection and for voltage drops.
6) Termoc broken (this trips if the thermocouple fails or is disconnected)
Check connection between the thermocouple and the circuit board: check operation with cold tests.
7) Over temp (shutdown due to excessive smoke temperature)
Excessive smoke temperature may be caused by: the type of pellet, smoke extraction fault, blocked smoke duct,
incorrect installation, or gearmotor "drift".
17
SERVICING
Regular maintenance is essential for good insert operation
Before carrying out any maintenance, disconnect the device from the mains power supply.
DAILY CLEANING

- General internal and external cleaning
- Carefully clean heat exchange pipes
- Carefully clean and descale combustion chamber and corresponding compartment
- Clean fan and mechanically inspect play and fastenings
- Clean smoke duct (replace gasket on smoke outlet pipe)
- Clean smoke extractor fan compartment and flow sensor, and check thermocouple
- Clean, inspect and descale ignition heating element compartment and change the heating element itself if necessary
- Clean/check display-control panel
- Visually inspect electric cables, connections and power cord
- Clean pellet hopper and check screw feeder-gearmotor assembly play
- Change door seal
- Test screw feeder loading, ignition, operation for ten minutes and shutdown
If the insert is used frequently, it is advisable to clean the smoke duct every 3 months.
