Planning The Installation
HINT:
HINT:
HINT:
HINT:
Have an authorized Travis Industries dealer install this heater. If you install the heater
yourself, have your dealer review your installation plans.
Sketch out a detailed plan of the installation including dimensions. Then verify the
dimensions with the requirements listed in this manual.
When determining the location of the stove, locate the wall studs (for horizontal
penetrations) and ceiling trusses (for vertical penetrations). You may wish to adjust the
stove position slightly to ensure the vent does not intersect with a framing member.
Place the heater outside and load 10 pounds of pellets inside the hopper. Plug the
heater in and let it run on HIGH until the pellets run out. This will cure the paint and burn
off any oil on the steel, eliminating any smell inside the home.
Stove Placement
•
•
HINT:
•
Stove must be placed so that no combustibles are within, or can swing within (e.g. drapes,
doors), 36" of the front of the heater.
If the stove is placed in a location where the ceiling height is less than 7', it must follow the
requirements in the section "Alcove Installation Requirements".
REDUCING CLEARANCES - Clearances may be reduced by methods specified in NFPA
211, listed wall shields, pipe shields, or other means approved by local building or fire
officials.
Heater and floor protection must be installed on a level, secure floor.
Floor Protection Requirements
•
•
The heater must be installed on a non-combustible floor protector extending the full width
and depth of the heater and extending 6" in front (minimum 27-3/4" wide by 31" deep)
(minimum .018" thick - 26 gauge) .
Must extend under and 2" to each side and rear of a "Tee" (if used).

Mobile Home Requirements
•
Outside air is required (used for
combustion) - see the directions
below.
•
The heater must be bolted to the
floor (Some states do not require
this; check with your local building
department). See the illustration
to the right.
•
The heater must be grounded to
the steel chassis of the mobile
home (Some states do not require
this; check with your local building
department).
WARNING:
DO NOT INSTALL IN
SLEEPING ROOM.
CAUTION:
THE STRUCTURAL
INTEGRITY OF THE
MANUFACTURED HOME
FLOOR, WALL, AND
CEILING/ROOF MUST BE
MAINTAINED.
The leveling bolts in the legs may be used
in conjunction with the included clips (sku
210-03924) to secure the stove to the floor.
Outside Air (used for combustion)
•
Must not be drawn from an enclosed space (garage, unventilated crawl space).
HINT:
Travis Industries strongly suggests outside air for all residential installations, especially for
those that are energy efficient, air-tight homes.
•
Must not be over 15' long.
•
Must be made with 3" diameter or larger metal or aluminum duct with a metal screen attached to
the end to keep out rodents (P.V.C. or other combustible materials may not be used). We
recommend the Travis Industries Outside Air Kit (part # 99200136).
•
Must not terminate above or within 1' of the chimney termination.
•
Must have a rain cap or down-turned elbow to prevent water from entering.
•
Must be located so that it will not become plugged by snow or other material.

Alcove Installation Requirements
When the pellet stove is placed in a location where the ceiling height is less than 7' tall, it is considered
an alcove installation. Because of the reduced height, the requirements listed below must be met.
•
Minimum height is 55"
•
Maximum depth is 48"
•
Minimum width is 41-1/4"
•
Minimum clearance of 7" on each side and 3" on back
Baffle Installation
Install the baffles included with the stove (see page 29 for details).
Door Seal Verification
The door is aligned prior to leaving the factory. However, shipping and installation may cause the door to
become mis-aligned. Verify the door is correctly aligned and seals properly (see the section "Door Seal"
under Yearly Maintenance).
Restrictor Adjustment
The restrictor “fine tunes” your appliance, ensuring it pulls the correct amount of air through the
firebox. Altitude, vent configuration, and other factors make restrictor adjustment necessary for every
installation.
NOTE: the optimal restrictor position will vary over time as soot builds up inside the exhaust system –
make sure the homeowner knows how to visually inspect the flame and adjust the restrictor.
Not Enough Air
If clinkers (ashes that solidify into a
clump) develop or the flame appears
lazy and slow to blow the ash out of the
firepot, pull the restrictor outward until
the flame becomes active and the
firepot holes remain clean. NOTE: If the
restrictor is fully out, yet the firepot does
not remain clean, the stove needs to be
cleaned and checked for air leaks (see
“Maintenance” section of this manual).
Too Much Air
If the flames are too active (small,
flickering flames) or if burning pellets are
expelled from the firepot, move the
restrictor rod inwards until the flame
slows down and no burning pellets are
expelled. Another symptom of too
much air is the heater “blowing the fire
out” – a condition in which the pellets
burn faster than they are fed (this is most
common on low).

Safety Notice
Read this entire manual (especially the "Safety Precautions" on pages 4 and 5)
before using this stove. Failure to follow the instructions may result in property
damage, bodily injury, or even death.
!
Do not unplug the stove to turn it off. This stove relies upon electricity to push the flue
gases out the pellet vent – unplugging it may lead to smoke entering your room.
!
Failure to maintain your heater will lead to a restricted combustion air system, leading to
poor performance and in some cases, smoke spillage into the room. See the
"Maintenance" section for details.

Start the Heater - Let it Burn for 1 Hour - THEN OPEN THE DOOR
The stove paint is cured through heat. To prevent it from bonding to the door gasket, you must burn
the heater for approximately 1 hour, then open and close the door to break any bonding.
Curing the Paint
This stove uses a heat-activated paint that will
emit some fumes while starting the first fire.
Open doors and windows to the room to vent
these fumes. You may also notice oil burning
off of the interior of the stove. This ruststopping agent will soon dissipate.

area below the handle.
HINT:
NOTE:
The auger automatically shuts off when the hopper
lid is open. If loading pellets while the heater is on,
make sure to close the lid as soon as possible.
This prevents the heater from shutting off due to
lack of pellets in the firepot.
To prevent the pellet stove from inadvertently shutting down due to the auger disabling switch, we
recommend pressing the “START” button after reloading the stove.
The Two Modes of Operation

Restrictor Adjustment
The restrictor “fine tunes” your appliance, adjusting the amount of air flowing to the flame.
NOTE: the optimal restrictor position will vary over time as soot builds up inside the exhaust system.
Not Enough Air
If clinkers (ashes that solidify into
a clump) develop or the flame
appears lazy and slow to blow the
ash out of the firepot, pull the
restrictor outward until the flame
becomes active and the firepot
holes remain clean. NOTE: If the
restrictor is fully out, yet the
firepot does not remain clean,
the stove needs to be cleaned
and checked for air leaks (see
“Maintenance” section of this
manual).
Too Much Air
If the flames are too active (small,
flickering flames) or if burning
pellets are expelled from the
firepot, move the restrictor rod
inwards until the flame slows
down and no burning pellets are
expelled. Another symptom of
too much air is the heater
“blowing the fire out” – a
condition in which the pellets
burn faster than they are fed (this
is most common on low).

Start-Up Sequence
This stove utilizes a start-up sequence whenever the mode switch is changed or the heater is started
when cold. This is to ensure proper operation through all possible settings and operational states (hot
or cold, pellets burning or not burning, etc.). This sequence over-rides all user settings (except the
"OFF" position) to set the auger feed rate to medium, the exhaust blower to high, and the igniter on.
During this period the lowest “HEAT OUTPUT” light will flash.
"MANUAL AUGER" Button
This button turns the auger on. It is used to “prime” the auger after the hopper has run out of pellets.
"AUGER ON" Light
This light comes on when the auger is turning. This allows the operator to determine when the auger
is turning.
"FAULT" Light
This light comes on when an error occurs:
DISCONNECT POWER BEFORE SERVICE
•
The stove runs out of pellets
•
During initial start-up (for a split
second) or for improper electrical
frequency
•
A start-up sequence that does not
result in the heater coming up to
temperature
To reset the fault light, turn the mode switch to
off and re-start the stove.

Fault and # 4 (MID) Light Flash = System Snap Disk Fault (pellets run out & stove goes cold)
Fault and # 6 (HIGH) Light Flash = Safety Snap Disk Fault
Power Outages
If a sustained power outage occurs while in "Manual", the stove will go to a "cool down" mode to
vacate smoke once power returns. If the power outage was short, the heater will go to the start-up
sequence. If in "Auto", the stove will re-start (if the room is cool).
!
Because this stove relies upon a blower to evacuate the smoke, some smoke may enter
the home during a power outage. To keep to a minimum, leave the door closed.

Using a Pellet/Corn Mix with This Heater
This heater may burn a mixture of corn and wood pellets up to a 50% - 50% proportion by volume.
Shelled corn burned in Travis pellet appliances must be clean (free of husk and cob residue) and have
a moisture content no greater than 15%.
DO NOT BURN A MIX WITH MORE THAN 50% CORN TO WOOD PELLETS.
THOROUGHLY MIX THE TWO FUELS TOGETHER TO BE SURE OF AN
EVEN BURN RATE.
•
If combustion is slow, if the fire is slow to start, or if clinkers (ashes that solidify into a clump)
build up rapidly in the fire pot, decrease the proportion of corn and increase the proportion
of wood pellets until you find a proportion that works well in your appliance.
•
If your stove or insert is operated with a thermostat, you may notice the automatic igniter at
times fails to light a 50/50 corn to pellet mix. If you experience this, decrease the proportion
of corn and increase the proportion of wood pellets in the mix.
For an optimum fire and greatest efficiency, it is important to keep the fire pot free of built up ashes. If
you are burning only high quality wood pellets, you should check and clean the fire pot at least every
two weeks or after ten bags of pellets.
If the pellets you are burning have a high ash content or if you burn a corn/wood pellet mixture, we
recommend that you check the fire pot every day and clean it if necessary.

Bi-Weekly Maintenance (or every 10 bags of pellets)
Flyash Removal
This heater was designed to allow for easy flyash removal with the included tools. However, to ease
maintenance, several pellet stove owners have purchased vacuums specifically made to remove
flyash. Furthermore, some of these vacuums are heat-resistant to allow for flyash removal while it is still
warm. Do not use a standard vacuum on this appliance (except to clean the pellet dust out
of the hopper). Standard vacuums may spread the fine particles inside the flyash into the home and
are not heat-resistant (hot flyash may cause the internal portion of vacuums to ignite).
Clean the Hopper
Run the stove until the pellets run out. Open the hopper and remove the dust and debris near the
bottom of the hopper.
Clean the Heat Exchange Tubes
Use the included tool to move the
heat exchanger rod up and down.
NOTE: The tool hangs on
the back of the stove.
WARNING:
The front edge of the
stove becomes very hot,
do not touch the area
below the handle.
Keep the door closed so the
flyash does not enter the room.

Clean the Baffles
WARNING: Make sure the heater has fully cooled (approximately 25 minutes) before conducting service.
HINT:
The more often you clean out flyash, the more efficient your heater will burn.
The baffles are found along the top of the firebox. The front edge has a slot that slides into a hook on
the top of the firebox. The back rests on the back refractory. To remove, slide them inwards, pull
them forward, and tilt them back to allow the accumulated flyash fall off into the firebox. Replace after
cleaning.
Move the baffle forward and tilt the back down.
This allows any built-up flyash to fall off the top
of the baffle.
Push up on the front portion of the left
baffle and slide it to the right. Note how
the rear edge of the baffle rests on the
rear refractory.
The right side baffle is removed
in the same fashion. Note how
the right side baffle is larger
than the left side baffle.

Disposal of Ashes – 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.
Clean the Glass
Open the doors and clean the glass with a non-abrasive glass cleaner and rag.

Yearly Maintenance (or every two tons)
The following section details extensive maintenance procedures. We strongly suggest
these items be carried out by a trained service technician, possibly by a service agreement
set up with your dealer.
WARNING:
Disconnect the power cord and make sure the heater has fully cooled
prior to conducting service.
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 to determine if
cleaning is necessary.
Clean the Vertical Exhaust Duct
Remove the baffles at the top of the firebox (see page 31). Remove the firepot and ashdump covers
(see page 32). Remove the side and back refractory (see the pictures below).
Using the included latch tool, remove the two duct covers on the inside of the firebox (see the
pictures below)..

Yearly Maintenance (or every two tons) - continued
Remove the button plugs at the top of the firebox (both sides). Once removed, use the bottle brush
to dislodge any flyash from the exhaust channel behind the button plug.
Use the
bottle brush
to clean this
channel.
Button Plug
Use the included bottle brush to remove accumulated flyash from the vertical exhaust channels (both
sides). You may need to bend the bottle brush to allow it to access this area. Remove accumulated
flyash from the horizontal exhaust channels along the perimeter of the firebox and leading to the
exhaust blower. Sweep the flyash out of the exahust channels and into the ashpan.
Vertical Exhaust Channel (behind the
firebox walls – accessed from below).
Horizontal Exhaust Channel
HINT: You can remove dry flyash from the
vertical exhaust channels by “tapping” on
the walls (be careful to prevent flyash from
flying into the air).

Clean the Exhaust Blower
The exhaust blower cover is held in place with 4 screws.
Remove the
side cover.
Remove the cover plate on the exhaust blower. Clean the area inside the blower, removing all flyash.
Remove these 3 nuts to
expose the exhaust blower.

Use the bottle brush to disoldge any
flyash near the exahust blower and in the
horizontal exhaust channel. Take care
to not damage the impeller on the
exhaust blower.

convection blower impellers.

Flyash will deposit along
sections that are horizontal.
Warning:
Make sure the cap is free of debris
(especially if it has a screen that could
become blocked).
AA

Check the vent sections for creosote
accumulation (indicating a poorly burning
stove). Accumulation over 1/4” must be
removed.
On vertically vented systems, the dirtiest portion
is often the point where the vent turns upwards
(i.e. the "Tee"). Fortunately, the "Tee" has a builtin clean-out cover. Place a container under the
“Tee”, disconnect the cover and remove all flyash.
While open, use a flashlight to look up the vent to
check for build-up.
Whenever any portion of the pellet vent is disconnected, the joints must be sealed with
RTV 500° F. silicone sealant.
Adjusting the Door Hinge and Latch
The door latch should pull the door against the face of the stove (but not so tight as to not allow full
handle rotation). To adjust the door latch, adjust the position of the striker plate that attaches to the
front plate of the stove.
Check for Air Leaks Around the Door, Glass, and Ashpan
!
•
•
•
Air leaks into the firebox will decrease the stove's performance greatly, leading to excessive
sooting, inefficient burning, and perhaps a malfunction.
Inspect the door gasket to make sure it is fully attached. Use stove gasket cement to re-attach if
necessary. If the door gasket is worn or flattened, replace.
If the glass is cracked, replace. The glass is held in place by glass clips. See the illustration below
for details.
Remove the ashpan and inspect the gasket around the perimeter of the ashpan. Re-attach, or
replace the gasket if necessary.
