Introduction
The entire family of United States Stove Company thanks you for purchasing your new pellet burning room heater. At U.S.
Stove, we build all of our products with a hands-on approach to detail and quality. Our old world team of Craftsmen take
great pride in their superior workmanship to ensure you have years of trouble free use of your pellet heater.
U.S. Stove Pellet Burning Room Heaters have been tested and listed for installation in residential, mobile home and alcove
installations. U.S. Stove Pellet Burning Room Heaters are available in free standing pedestal and fireplace insert versions.
U.S. Stove Pellet Burning Room Heaters have been certified by OMNI-Test Laboritories to:
ASTM E1509-04, ULC/ORD-C1482-M90, ULC-S627-00, & ULC-S628-00
The performance of your Pellet Stove Room Heater can be affected by the type of pellet fuel you choose to burn in it. It is
important to use only pellet fuel that is dry and free from dirt or other impurities. The Pellet Fuel Industry has established
standards for wood pellet manufacturers. We recommend that pellet fuel used in all U.S. Stove Pellet Burning Room
Heaters meet or exceed the following specifications:
Fines (fine particles):
Bulk Density:
Size:
Ash Content:
Moisture Content:
Heat Content:
Maximum through a 1/8” screen
Minimum 40 lbs per cubic foot
Maximum 3/8” Diameter by 1-1/2” length
1% Maximum (Premium grade)
3% Maximum (Standard grade)
8% Maximum
Minimum 8,200 btu’s per hour
It is important to note that the ash content of the fuel and frequency of operation will determine the frequency of which you
will be required to clean your Pellet Stove. A high ash fuel may result in daily cleaning, while a low ash content fuel may
result in less frequent cleaning.
Occasionally, impurities in the fuel will cause a hard mass build up in the burn pot of your Pellet Stove. Impurities, such as
silica, can virtually form little glass balls when subjected to the high heat generated in the burn pot. When allowed to collect,
a hard base build up may block air flow through the burn pot, which will significantly affect the performance and efficiency of
your Pellet Stove. It is a good idea to check the burn pot for any hard mass buildup or other blockage on a daily basis, and
if necessary let the burn pot cool and then clean the burn pot.
U.S. Stove Company realizes that it cannot control the quality of pellet fuel you choose to use in your Pellet heater;
U.S. Stove assumes no responsibility for that choice.
CAUTION: BE SURE TO STORE PELLET FUEL A MINIMUM OF 3 FEET (914.5MM) AWAY FROM THE PELLET HEATER.
RADIANT HEAT CAN IGNITE THE FUEL.
Please note that the rating label is located on the inside of the hopper lid.

SAFETY INFORMATION
Be sure to read the entire owner’s manual prior to installing and operating this Pellet heater. Failure to follow these instructions
could result in fire, property damage, bodily injury or even death.
This stove’s exhaust system works with negative combustion chamber pressure and a slight positive chimney pressure, it is
extremely important to ensure that the exhaust system is sealed and airtight. The ash pan and viewing door must be securely
fastened in order for the unit to be airtight. This Pellet heater will not operate using natural draft or without a power source for
the blowers.
CAUTION: Burning fuel creates carbon monoxide and can be hazardous to your health if not properly vented.
CAUTION: A working smoke detector must be installed in the same room as this product. It must be installed at least
15 feet (4,57 m) from the appliance in order to prevent undue triggering of the detector when reloading.
The use of grates or other methods of supporting the fuel is not permitted.
This Pellet heater is designed to burn pellet wood fuel only. Do not use any other type of fuel; doing so will void any warranties
stated in this manual.
THE USE OF SOLID WOOD FUEL IS PROHIBITED BY LAW.
This Pellet heater is designed for residential installation according to current national and local building codes. It is also
approved as a mobile home heater, which requires connection to an outside combustion air source. When installing a
Pellet Stove in a mobile home, it must be electrically grounded to the steel chassis of the home and bolted to the floor.
Make sure that structural integrity of the home is maintained.
Make sure that structural integrity of the home is maintained when passing vent pipes through walls, ceilings and roofs
It is recommended that the exhaust vent be cleaned biannually or after every two tons of pellets.
Soot or creosote may accumulate when the pellet heater is operated under incorrect conditions, such as an extremely rich
burn (black tipped lazy orange flames). Do not operate the stove if the flame becomes dark or sooty or if the burn pot overfills
with pellets. Turn the stove off and call your dealer.
The grounded electrical cord must be connected to a standard 120 volt, 60 hertz electrical outlet. Ensure that the electrical
cord is not trapped under the appliance and that it is clear of any hot surfaces or sharp edges.
The ash pan and viewing door must be locked securely for proper and safe operation.
DO NOT PLACE UNBURNED OR NEW PELLET FUEL IN THE ASH PAN. A fire in the ash pan may occur.
Do not operate your pellet heater if you smell smoke coming from it. Turn it off, monitor it and call your dealer.
Repair and servicing of your U.S. Stove Pellet Burning Room Heater may only be done by a qualified technician.
Disconnect the power cord before performing any maintenance or repair.
NOTE: Turning the Pellet Stove Room Heater to "off" does not disconnect power from the unit.

home.
Check the venting system, at least twice a year, for creosote build-up.
Keep all door/lid seals and gaskets in good condition.
Adequate ventilation air is required to operate this heater. During operation, the heater draws air for combustion which can
be assisted by the installation of outside combustion air inlets. However, certain weather conditions such as icing or use of
kitchen exhaust fans may impact and reduce the effectiveness of vents. It is important to note that room air starvation will
negatively impact the operation of the heater.
If power outages with battery backup or room air starvation occurs during operation of heater, smoke in the house may
result. This may trigger smoke detectors if they are installed.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Check and Fill the Fuel Hopper with Pellets:
 To check and fill the hopper, simply lift the hopper door, visually check the hopper and add pellets when needed.
CAUTION: DO NOT OVERFILL THE PELLET FUEL HOPPER. AS A SAFETY PRECAUTION, THE AUGER WILL NOT OPERATE AT
ANY TIME WHEN FUEL HOPPER DOOR IS OPEN.
Pre-start Check-up:
Make sure that all parts of the pellet stove room heater are cool before proceeding. Remove the burn pot and clean out any ash debris.
Be sure to re-install the burn pot in the correct position (see page 21).
The blowers and automatic fuel supply are controlled from a panel located on the right hand side of the stove.
Note: Your Pellet Stove may omit an odor as oil residue from the manufacturing process burns off and the high temperature
paint cures. You can minimize this effect by running a smaller fire for the first few hours of operation. Avoid placing any items
on the stove top during this period as the stove’s paint could be permanently damaged.
Lighting Instructions:
ATTENTION: Viewing door must be securely latched to ensure proper stove operation. Push door closed and engage latches
in locking holes on door. Press latch handles toward stove body until fully engaged; you will feel the latch engage and hear an
audible click. If door is loose adjust tension control nuts on latches until both latches hold door secure and tight.
When first operating your Pellet Stove, depress the MODE button until the LED indicator above MANUAL lights up. This will engage
MANUAL mode and provide you with full control of the heater’s control board functions and allow you to familiarize yourself with how the
heater works. The heat level for T-STAT mode can only be set when the control is in the Manual Mode.
Starting Up The Pellet Stove Room Heater:
Whenever operating the pellet stove for first time, or if the stove runs out of pellets, it is necessary to prime the auger with pellet fuel. To
do this, Press and Hold the AUGER Button for Approximately 3 Seconds until the AUGER LED illuminates. This procedure will prime the
auger and then automatically initiate the normal ignition cycle.
CAUTION: Do not use this procedure for normal startup. To do so would cause excessive fuel build-up in the burn pot.
For normal startup with pellet fuel in the auger, press and release the On/Off button. The LED indicator light above the On/Off button will
alternately flash green then red to indicate that the start-up cycle has begun. The light above the Auger button will flash intermittently to
indicate the activation of the auger feeding the pellets into the burn pot. The electric igniter will also be activated at this time. The igniter
takes a few minutes to come up to temperature in order to ignite the pellets in the burn pot. It will normally take between 4 minutes and
8 minutes for pellets to ignite.
NOTE: If pellets do not ignite within 12 minutes the heater will shut down, requiring you to turn on the heater and repeat the
start-up process.
When the pellets have ignited and flame has been established, the start-up cycle will end; this procedure takes between 8 and 12 minutes.
If the control is set to Manual Mode, it will now default to the heat level setting the last shutdown time. If the control is set to T-STAT Mode,
the heat output will coincide to the commands from the thermostat.
Auger:
As explained in the starting up step, this button is only served to start up the pellet stove in lieu of the on/off button when there are no
pellets in the auger.
Circulation Air Flow:
Your pellet stove room heater features circulation air flow which will change in accordance with the heat setting. Circulation air flow will be
at its maximum setting when the heat setting is also at maximum and subsequently will be at its minimum setting when the heat setting is
at minimum. If you desire to operate the circulation fan at its maximum setting regardless of heat setting, you may do so by pressing the
FAN button.
Auger Trim:
When operating at Heat Level 1, if the flame goes out or the heat output is too high on the minimum heat level setting, use the AUGER
TRIM button to make adjustments. See the AUGER TRIM button description on page 8.
Shutting Down Your Pellet Stove Room Heater:
Turn off the heater by pressing the On/Off button. The stove will enter the shutdown cycle and the pellets will stop feeding into the burn pot
to allow the fuel in the burn pot to be combusted and consumed. During this period, the exhaust blower and circulation fan will continue to
operate until the flames are out and the heater has cooled down. When the heater has cooled down to its pre-set level, it will shut down
completely.
CAUTION: NEVER TURN OFF THE HEATER BY UNPLUGGING OR DISCONNECTING ITS ELECTRICAL POWER SOURCE. DOING SO
WILL CAUSE THE HEATER TO SKIP THE PROPER SHUTDOWN CYCLE, CAUSING THE HEATER TO OVERHEAT AND THE POSSIBLE
RELEASE OF SMOKE INTO THE HOUSE.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS - continued
Control Board Functions:
MODE Button: The MODE button allows you to switch operating mode on your pellet stove room heater.
Depress the MODE button to switch between Manual and T-STAT modes. As you depress the MODE button,
the indicator light above the desired mode will engage. When you engage the Manual mode, you will be
able to manually select the heat settings. If you have installed a remote thermostat for your heater and wish
to have the heater controlled by that thermostat, depress the MODE button to engage T-STAT mode. The
thermostat will control the heat output of the heater alternating between the lowest heat level and the highest
heat level that you have pre-selected. The T-STAT mode provides the most even heat output, for better
comfort, and to extend the life of the pellet fuel ignition system. Additionally, the constant flame serves as a
warning for people and pets to keep away from the heater while it is in operation.
ON/OFF Button: The ON/OFF button is used to turn the heater on and off. Whenever there is power to the
heater, the LED indicator light above the ON/OFF button will be solid red. If the heater is cold prior to start-up,
press and release the ON/OFF button. The LED light above the ON/OFF button will alternately flash red and
green to indicate the startup cycle has started. Fuel pellets will start to feed into the burn pot and the pellet fuel
ignition system will be activated. Flames in the burn pot will normally appear between 4 - 8 minutes, and once
the flame has been established, the startup cycle will end, this takes between 8-12 minutes. At this point the
LED indicator light above the ON/OFF button will glow solid green. The user will now be able to make heat level
adjustments.
Figure 3
HEAT LEVEL Button: Depress the HEAT LEVEL button to advance the heat level by one level until you reach the
maximum setting; from the maximum level you will decrease one level each time you depress the HEAT LEVEL
button. The circulation fan speed will also increase with the heat level setting. Wait until the startup cycle is complete
and the ON/OFF LED is solid green to set Heat Level. (The HEAT LEVEL LEDs are also used as codes to indicate a
malfunction, please refer to the Safety Features and warning codes section for more information.)
FAN Button: Depressing the FAN button will set the circulation fan speed to high, overriding the automatic fan speed control. The onboard
logic will modulate the fan speed in accordance with the heat level setting. It is recommended that you allow the control to automatically set and
adjust the speed of the fan to obtain optimum efficiency and minimal fan noise.
AUGER Button: Whenever Operating the Pellet Stove for First Time, or if The Stove Runs Out Of Pellets, it is Necessary to Prime the Auger
with Pellet Fuel. To do this, Press and Hold the AUGER Button for Approximately 3 Seconds until the AUGER LED illuminates. This Procedure
will prime the Auger and then Automatically Initiate the Normal Ignition Cycle. NOTICE: Do not use this procedure for normal startup. To
do so would cause excessive fuel build-up in the burn pot.
AUGER TRIM Button: This Button is only enabled when operating at Heat Level 1. Depress the AUGER TRIM Button to change the Auger feed
rate on the minimum heat level to account for the quality of pellet fuel being used. Increasing the Auger feed rate will help keep the flames
from extinguishing on the minimum heat level setting. You can also use the AUGER TRIM button to lower heat output on the minimum heat
level setting:

Depress and release the AUGER TRIM button until the heat level 1 and 5 setting lights appear to slightly increase the feed rate on the
minimum heat level.

Depress and release the AUGER TRIM button until the heat level 1 and 4 setting lights appear to slightly reduce the pellet feed rate on the
minimum heat level setting. Use this setting to reduce the heat level output on low.
 Depress and release the AUGER TRIM button until only the heat level 1 setting light is on, this is the factory setting and works for most
types of fuel.
Open Door: During normal operation the heater will automatically shut off if the viewing door is opened for more than 30 seconds. This
action causes the heater to go into vacuum error mode. To clear this error and restart the heater, close the door, depress the ON/OFF button
and then follow directions for restarting heater.
Refilling the Fuel Hopper: For maximum performance do not let the pellet fuel hopper drop below 1/4 full.
Fuel Hopper Lid Safety Switch: When the Fuel Hopper Lid is opened the auger will stop turning to prevent accidental injury.
KEEP PELLET FUEL HOPPER LID CLOSED AT ALL TIMES EXCEPT WHEN REFILLING. DO NOT OVERFILL HOPPER.
Safety Features and warning code:
1. Your heater is equipped with a temperature “high-limit” switch, designed to shutdown the auger in case of an over temperature situation. The
high-limit switch is a thermo snap disc type and must be manually reset in the event of an overheat shutdown. Once the heater has cooled
down, you can reactivate the high-limit switch by depressing the manual reset button located on the high-limit switch.
2. When the High-Limit switch opens, which indicates an overheat failure, the HEAT LEVEL LED’s 3 & 4 will flash red.
3. Your heater is equipped with a vacuum switch that automatically shuts down the auger in the event of a exhaust fan malfunction.
4. When a Vacuum Error is sensed, the HEAT LEVEL LED’s 1 & 2 will flash red. Check to ensure the glass door is latched properly.
5. When the Low-Limit switch opens, (fire went out) the HEAT LEVEL LED’s 4 & 5 will flash red. First check fuel supply, then check to
ensure Auger is not jammed and finally that pellet hopper door is properly closed.
6. When the Pellets in the Burn Pot fail to ignite HEAT LEVEL LED’s 1 & 5 will flash red.
NOTE: In the event that the high-limit switch or vacuum switch activates, please contact your dealer to discuss the cause of this
activation and to ensure that your heater continues to operate in a safe manner. Either switch tripping can indicate a problem with
the operation of your heater.

THERMOSTAT INSTALLATION
Optional thermostats are available for use with your pellet stove. A thermostat can help you maintain a constant room
temperature. The thermostat option will require the installation of a millivolt type thermostat.
NOTE: Your thermostat should be installed by an authorized dealer or service person.
Installation of Remote Thermostat:
• Disconnect Pellet Stove Room Heater unit from power supply.
• Open right side panel to gain access to rear of control panel.
• Strip insulation from thermostat wires and connect to the screw terminal on the rear of the control panel (see Figure 4).
If you have installed a remote thermostat for your pellet stove and wish to have the heater controlled by that thermostat,
depress the MODE button to engage T-STAT mode. The thermostat will control the heat output of the heater alternating
between the lowest heat level and the highest heat level that you have pre-selected.
The T-STAT mode provides the most even heat output, for better comfort, and to extend the life of the pellet fuel ignition
system. Additionally, the constant flame serves as a warning for people and pets to keep away from the heater while it is
in operation.

INSTALLING YOUR ROOM HEATER
You have already made the important decision of choosing your U.S. Stove Pellet Burning Room Heater; now your next step
is to determine where to install your new pellet stove heater. To get the most efficient use of re-circulated heat, you should
consider a room that is centrally located within your home. Choose a room that is large and open.
It is Extremely Important to maintain proper clearances from any combustible surfaces or materials in the room where your
heater will be located. You can find proper clearance measurements on page 10 of this manual and on the rating label
of your pellet stove.
The pellet stove can be vented through an exterior wall or into an existing masonry or metal chimney. The chimney must
be lined if it is over 6” (150mm) in diameter or if it has a cross-sectional area of over 28 square inches (711mm2). Venting
can pass through the ceiling and roof if approved pipe is used. Where passage through a wall, or partition of combustible
construction is desired, the installation must conform to CAN/CSA-B365
DO NOT OBTAIN COMBUSTION AIR FROM THE ATTIC, GARAGE OR ANY OTHER UNVENTILATED AREA. YOU MAY
OBTAIN COMBUSTION AIR FROM A VENTILATED CRAWLSPACE.

MOBILE HOME INSTALLATION
Mobile home installation should be done in accordance with the Manufactured Home and Safety Standard (HUD), CFR 3280,
Part 24. Canadian installations require that the heater must be connected to a 3 or 4 inch, factory-built chimney conforming to
CAN/ULC-S629. See the installation illustrations in this manual for minimum height above the roof. U.S. Stove suggests the use
of Selkirk’s Pellet Venting Products. Refer to their installation instructions for proper installation of the exhaust and combustion
air intake. The chimney installation must allow for removal in case of mobile home transportation, especially outside connections. You may contact your local building authority or person having jurisdiction on height restrictions.
In order for this unit to be installed in a mobile home the following criteria must be met:
•
The unit must be secured to the floor using lag bolts in the holes provided in the pedestal base.
•
Ensure that the unit is permanently electrically grounded to the chassis of your home.
IT IS MANDATORY TO TAKE THE COMBUSTION AIR FROM THE OUTSIDE WHEN INSTALLING THIS UNIT IN AIR
TIGHT OR MANUFACTURED/MOBILE HOMES.
CAUTION: THE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY OF THE MANUFACTURED HOME FLOOR, WALL, AND CEILING/ROOF
MUST BE MAINTAINED. MAKE SURE TO MAINTAIN AN EFFECTIVE VAPOR BARRIER BY SEALING WITH SILICONE
WHERE THE CHIMNEY OR OTHER COMPONENTS PENETRATE TO THE EXTERIOR OF THE STRUCTURE. REFER
TO AND FOLLOW THE CHIMNEY MANUFACTURER’S INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS.
WARNING: DO NOT INSTALL IN SLEEPING ROOM.

MAINTENANCE
FAILURE TO CLEAN AND MAINTAIN THIS UNIT AS INDICATED MAY RESULT IN POOR PERFORMANCE
AND HAZARDOUS SITUATIONS. CLEAN THE HEATER FREQUENTLY AS ACCUMULATION OF SOOT,
CREOSOTE OR FLYASH MAY OCCUR. NEVER CLEAN THE UNIT WHEN HOT.
Burn Pot:
Note: Let the unit cool to room temperature before inspecting the burn pot. Inspect the burn pot regularly to check
that the holes have not become plugged. If necessary clean thoroughly. It is imperative that the burn pot be reinstalled the correct way or the unit will not light. The end of the burn pot with an igniter hole in it (see Figure 23)
must be installed facing the rear of the unit. This hole allows the igniter to heat up the pellets to the point of ignition.

MAINTENANCE - continued
Ash Removal - Freestanding Unit:
Remove the ashes periodically to avoid unnecessary ash build up. Ash removal is as follows:
1. Let fire run out and allow unit cool to room temperature
2. Clean the heat exchanger tubes (see Heat Exchanger Cleaning section) – Make sure Pellet Stove is at room temperature
before touching
3. Open the ash pan door, remove the burn pot and empty into metal container
4. Vacuum to remove ashes from the firebox.
BE SURE THAT ASHES ARE COOL TO THE TOUCH BEFORE VACUUMING. Some vacuum cleaners may leak ash
into the room. Your vacuum cleaner should have a special filter or bag to eliminate leakage.
5. Remove ash pan and dispose of ashes into metal container
6. Reinstall ash pan
7. Reinstall burn pot.
Disposal of Ashes
Ashes should be placed in a steel metal container with a tight fitting lid. The closed container of ashes should be placed
on a non-combustible 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. Do not place other waste in the same container.
22
MAINTENANCE - continued
Cleaning
Heat Exchanger Tubes – Your Pellet Stove Room Heater is designed with a built in heat exchanger tube cleaner. This
should be used every 2 or 3 days to remove ash build up on the heat exchanger tubes, which can reduce heat transfer. The
handle, for the heat exchanger tube cleaner, is located in front of the vent tubes on front side of heater. Slide the rod front
to back several times to clean the tubes then follow the instructions for ash removal.

Cleaner Handle
Periodically remove the clean outs
on either side of the heat exchanger.
Clean out the ash, then follow the
instructions for ash removal. Check
the gasket before replacing the clean
out cover. If gasket is damaged new
gasket can be ordered. Alternatively,
high temperature silicone can be used
to ensure a proper seal between the
clean out cover and the stove body.

WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPERATE THE HEAT EXCHANGE TUBE
CLEANER WHILE THE PELLET STOVE IS IN OPERATION OR COOLING
DOWN; WAIT UNTIL PELLET STOVE HAS COOLED COMPLETELY BEFORE
PERFORMING THIS PROCEDURE.
Fans – DANGER: RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK. DISCONNECT POWER BEFORE SERVICING UNIT
Over time ash or dust may accumulate on the blades of the circulation & exhaust fans. The fans should be inspected,
periodically, and if any accumulation is present vacuumed clean as the ash or dust can impede the fans performance. It is
also possible that creosote may accumulate in the exhaust fan therefore, this must be brushed clean.
The exhaust fan can be found behind the left side panel (facing the front of the heater), the circulation fan can be found
behind the right side panel. To access the igniter, remove the air inlet tube and cover (2 screws) (Figure 27).
Note: When cleaning, take care not to damage the fan blades.

MAINTENANCE - continued
Chimney/Vent System Cleaning:
1. Soot/Creosote Formation – When wood products are burned slowly, they produce tar and other organic vapors which
combine with expelled moisture to form soot. The soot vapors condense in the relatively cool chimney flue, as a result,
soot/creosote residue accumulates on the chimney lining. When ignited, soot/creosote makes an extremely hot fire
which can damage the chimney or cause a house fire. If a soot/creosote fire occurs, shut down the heater immediately
and call the fire department.
2. Soot and Flyash: Formation and Need for Removal—The products of combustion will contain small particles of flyash.
The flyash will collect in the exhaust venting system and restrict the flow of the flue gases. Incomplete combustion, such
as occurs during startup, shutdown, or incorrect operation of the room heater will lead to some soot formation which will
collect in the exhaust venting system. The exhaust venting system should be inspected at least once every year or per
ton of fuel burned to determine if cleaning is necessary.
Door Gaskets:
Gaskets around the door and window panes should be inspected, cleaned and repaired when necessary to maintain good
seal.
Door Glass Removal and Replacement:
Do not attempt to operate the unit with broken glass. Replacement glass may be purchased from your U.S. Stove Pellet
Burning Room Heater Dealer. If glass is broken, follow these removal procedures:
Replacement glass must be 0.197” thick tempered ceramic glass with a working service temperature of 1400 deg. F.
Center Glass size: 10” x 10.67”. Side glass size: 4” x 10.67”

5.
Once the heater has cooled, remove the door from the heater.
Remove the rope gasket from the door followed by the eight(8) nuts holding the glass retainer in place.
While wearing gloves, carefully remove any loose pieces of glass from the door frame.
Replace the glass and gasket, making sure the gasket runs the full perimeter of the glass edge.
Re-install the retainer and eight nuts and rope gasket using high temperature silicone to adhere the gasket to the
door.
6. Never use substitute materials for the glass.
Glass Cleaning: (Clean as needed)
1. Do not attempt to clean the glass while unit is hot. Wait until the pellet heater has cooled and then use a soft
cotton cloth and mild window cleaner or gas and wood stove cleaner.
2. Do not use abrasive cleaners.
3. Do not abuse the glass by striking or slamming the door.

TROUBLE SHOOTING
See page 29 for component locations.
The heater will not light.
• Check that the heater is plugged in and that the wall outlet has power.
• Unplug the unit then check all electrical connections against the Wiring Diagram in this manual.
• Check the fuse on the circuit board.
• If a thermostat is used, ensure it is calling for heat.
• If your heater still does not light, contact your local dealer for service.
The heater will not operate when hot.
• Check that the fuel hopper has enough pellets.
• Check that the combustion air inlet is not blocked. Insufficient air supply may cause the fire to burn cold and may cause
fuel build up, in the pot, and smother the fire.
• Check that the exhaust fan is operating. If the fan is not operating properly, it may not generate enough vacuum in the
firebox.
• Check the 200°F high limit switch. This switch is manually reset. Check if it has tripped. If so, let cool and reset switch.
Check for cause of overheating. If switch trips again, contact your local dealer for service
• Check the vacuum switch by shorting out the vacuum switch then depress ON/OFF button to “OFF” and back to “ON”.
If the unit starts to operate change the vacuum switch.
• Check the exhaust temperature switch (located on the exhaust blower) by shorting out the exhaust temperature switch
then depress ON/OFF button to “OFF” and back to “ON”. If the unit starts to operate change the exhaust temperature
switch.
Exhaust blower does not operate normally.
• Check all wiring connections.
• Apply 120 volts directly to the exhaust blower. If the blower does not run replace the blower.
Circulation blower does not operate normally.
• Check all wiring connections
• Apply 120 volts directly to the circulation blower. If the blower does not run, replace the blower.
Igniter will not light fuel.
• Check electrical connections (including fuse) to the igniter
• Check that the igniter tube, which touches the burn pot, is not plugged with ash. If it is plugged remove the debris
(be sure to wait until everything has cooled to room temperature)
• Check to see that burn pot is installed correctly (see page 29)
• If igniter still does not work, replace it.
Note: The igniter should be glowing orange when in operation.
The auger motor does not function normally.
• If the auger shaft does not turn but the motors armature tries to spin then this is a sign your auger is jammed. Try to
remove the blockage by poking at the fuel in the drop tube. If this does not work then empty the hopper and remove the
auger cover and clear the blockage (Note: Before removing the auger cover, disconnect power to the unit).
• Make sure the hopper lip is fully closed to engage the hopper lip interlock.
• Check for voltage at the auger motor. If none, check circuit board fuse. Replace blown fuse with 1 amp fuse.
• Ensure the exhaust blower is operating.
• Check the vacuum hose for proper connection or damage.
•
Bypass the vacuum switch by placing a jumper wire on the two electrical connections. If the auger motor starts to function normally, replace the vacuum switch.
• Check the manual reset on the 200° F high limit switch. If the switch has been tripped, check for the cause of the overheating. Reset the switch and check if the auger operates normally.
• Bypass the 200° F high switch by placing a jumper wire on the two electrical connections. If the auger motor starts to
function normally, replace the high limit switch.
• If the auger is not jammed and you have tried the other possible causes, connect 120 volts directly to the auger motor.
If the auger motor does not work, replace the auger motor.
25
TROUBLE SHOOTING - continued
The 200o F High-limit switch has tripped.
• Reset the switch and determine the cause. It is normally a faulty circulation fan. If the circulation fan does not operate,
apply 120 volts directly to the circulation fan. If it still does not operate, replace the circulation fan.
Heater will not shut off.
• If room thermostat is used, make sure it is turned down below the room temperature
• Disconnect one of the wires to the exhaust temperature sensor; the heater should then shut off. Replace sensor
• Depress the ON/OFF button to “OFF”. If the heater will still not shut off, disconnect power to the unit and call your local
dealer for service.
Heater Flame keeps going out on “LOW” setting.
If the flame goes out and leaves fresh unburned pellets in the burn pot liner, then the fire is going out before the unit shuts off.
• On the control panel, use HEAT button to turn the heat level up to the next setting. Poorer quality pellets require a
slightly higher setting.
• If it is on heat level 1, you may also adjust the fuel feeding rate slightly by pressing the Auger Trim button.
Door Glass has soot buildup at a fast rate and flame is lazy with black tips.
• The vent pipe (including air intake) may be dirty or partially blocked restricting airflow to the unit.
• The intake butterfly valve might be set at too low position.(see page 15 )
• Burn pot holes are blocked. Let the unit cool and clean burn pot and burn pot liner (be sure to follow instructions for
disposal of ashes found on page 23)
• Circuit board malfunction. Time the fuel feed light at each setting (after the stove has completed the initial “Start Up”
sequence. Check the timing against the timing chart (found below), if the auger motor runs constantly there is a problem
with the circuit board
•
Combustion/Exhaust blower is not operating. Check the combustion/exhaust blower is operating. If not, bypass the
exhaust temperature switch. If the motor operates, replace the exhaust temperature switch. If the combustion/exhaust
blower still does not work, apply 120 volts directly to the exhaust blower motor. If the motor still does not work, replace
the exhaust blower motor.
•
Poor fuel quality. The type of pellets being used may be of poor quality. If possible, try a different brand of pellets (refer
to fuel type information on page 3).
