Overview
This control board is compatible with all large and small pellet heaters manufactured from 1997. Circuitry on the
board allows it to be programmed for either the large or small pellet heaters (these heaters use different voltage
settings). See “Configuring the Control Board“ for details. It also includes a diagnostic feature that allows the end
user to diagnose common problems without having to inspect the wiring or components. The indicator lights on
the control board will display a maintenance code after a problem has been detected. See “Diagnostic Codes” for
details. NOTE: the new wiring harness (250-00017) is required to utilize this feature.
Configuring the Control Board
Configuring for Large or Small Heaters
The control board is initially configured for the large heaters (Astoria, Yankee, Arbor, and Leyden). To change the
configuration the control board must be in the off position plugged into a cold stove, (no lights or running
components) with the jumper molex removed (see the illustration below). In this condition press and hold the
manual auger button down and press both fan up and fan down arrow keys at the same time. All heat output
lights will flash. One flash denotes the large pellet heater configuration. Two flashes denote the small pellet heater
configuration (Newport and Pioneer models). Repeat pressing the keys until the correct configuration is obtained.

Using this Control Board with Older Wiring Harnesses
When the control board is installed on an older wire harness the 4 pin molex jumper plug on the back of the
control board next to the stock wire harness must be installed. This jumper replaces the diagnostic wires (see
“Wiring Diagram”) that are present on the new wiring harness. The control board will work normally, but the
diagnostic capabilities will not function.

Technical Notes for Operation
Make sure to give the home owner the “Pellet Heater Operating and Troubleshooting Instructions” if
you are replacing an older board (the final 5 pages of this instruction sheet). It contains the new
operating instructions for this control board.
A few changes were made to accommodate the new control board. The start up cycle indicator on the old
board illuminates all heat output indicator lights to show the unit is in a start-up cycle and adjusting the heat
setting knob would not change them. On the new board to enable adjusting the run settings during start-up we
made the start-up indicator the blinking #1 heat output light. If the #1 heat output light is blinking the board is
in a start-up mode and the blower and auger outputs can not be adjusted. The run settings the unit will go to
after start-up are displayed on the heat output indictor. These settings can be adjusted any time during start
up by pushing the up or down heat buttons on the panel. When the fan setting is adjusted up or down the
heat output indicators will turn off and the fan setting will display.
Another feature we added to the control board is a manual auger feed. This button can be used to prime and
empty the auger or speed the initial delivery of pellets to the burn pot. All start-up timing remains the same
and the stove will still self prime the auger tube – this option allows the operator an additional option. It is not
needed for normal operation.
All voltage outputs and feed rates remain the same as the old board. There is a difference in respect to the
auger on/off times. The auger timing was changed to shorten the interval between pellet drops to the burn
pot. For example, on low the auger used to turn for 3 seconds and remain off for 13 seconds, for this same
condition this control board turns the auger for 2.5 seconds and remains off for 10.7 seconds. This produces
the same amount of time the auger is turning and not turning but gives a steadier flame height and less
incidental outages on low.

Pellet Heater Operating and
Troubleshooting Instructions
The Two Modes of Operation:
Manual
Manual mode requires the user to turn
the heater on and off manually.
Auto (requires a thermostat)
Auto mode allows you to use a
thermostat to control room
temperature. The stove automatically
turns on when the temperature drops
below the thermostat setting. Once the
stove reaches operating temperature,
the stove then runs at the heat output
setting selected.
Switching Modes While in
Operation
Whenever the stove is switched from
one mode to another while in operation,
the stove will enter the "start-up"
sequence for a minimum of 20 minutes.

Manual Mode
Manual mode requires the user to turn the heater on and off
manually.
To Start
Press the "Manual Start" button. That's it. The stove
automatically goes to a medium burn rate and high fan while
the igniter starts the fire burning within 10 minutes. During
this period the lowest “HEAT OUTPUT” light will flash. If the
stove does not start in 30 minutes, the stove turns off.
Move the mode switch to "OFF". The exhaust blower will still
run until the heater cools down.

Auto Mode
Auto mode allows you to use a thermostat to control room temperature. The stove automatically turns on
when the temperature drops below the thermostat setting. Once the stove reaches operating temperature,
the stove then runs at the heat output setting selected.
To Adjust Room Temperature (or Start the Stove)
Move the thermostat to the heat setting desired. If the room is cooler
than the setting, the stove will go through the start-up sequence for
approximately 10 minutes. During this period the lowest “HEAT
OUTPUT” light will flash. Once up to temperature, the stove will then
run at the heat output setting selected on the control panel. If the room
is too hot, move the thermostat to a lesser setting.

HINT:
If you find that the stove turns on and off repeatedly, you
may wish to turn the heat output to a lesser setting. The
lower setting will provide a more consistent heat output
over time, eliminating the need for the thermostat to
repeatedly turn the stove off.
