Before You Begin
READ THIS ENTIRE MANUAL BEFORE YOU INSTALL AND USE THIS HEATER.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE,
BODILY INJURY, OR EVEN DEATH.
Check with local building officials for any permits required for installation of this pellet heater and notify
your insurance company before proceeding with installation.
Packing List

• Owner's Manual
• Door Latch Tool
• Fuses (2)
• Lag Bolts (2)
Installation Options:
•
Residential or Mobile Home (see the section "Mobile Home Requirements")
•
Alcove Compatible (see the section "Alcove Installation")
•

Planning The Installation
HINT:
Have an authorized Travis Industries dealer install this heater. If you install the heater
yourself, have your dealer review your installation plans.
HINT:
Sketch out a detailed plan of the installation including dimensions. Then verify the
dimensions with the requirements listed in this manual.
HINT:
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.
HINT:
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
•
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".
HINT:
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 21-5/8" wide by 26-7/8"
deep) (minimum .018" thick - 26 gauge) .
•
Must extend under and 2" to each side and rear of a chimney "Tee" (if used).

Alcove Installation Requirements
Whenever 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 installation requirements listed
below must be met.
•
Minimum height is 60"
•
Minimum width is 42"
•
Maximum depth is 48"
•
Minimum clearance of 9" on each side and 3" on back
Setting the Restrictor
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 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 2 and 3)
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.

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.

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 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).

21
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:
•
The stove runs out of pellets
•

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.

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 door and clean the glass with a non-abrasive glass cleaner and rag. This will increase the

Yearly Maintenance (or every two tons)
WARNING:
Disconnect the power cord prior to conducting service.
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.
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
(the stove must be cool and unplugged)
Remove both
refractory side clips.
Clean this area
behind where the
refractory rests
(both sides).

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 built-in clean out cover. Remove the
cover and vacuum out. While open, use a
flashlight to look up the pellet 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.

Yearly Maintenance (or every two tons) - Continued
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.
•
Test the door seal by shutting the door on a dollar bill in various locations. If the bill can be easily
slid out, air may be leaking around the door seal – inspect the door gasket and door catch
carefully.
•
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.
•
Check the door to make sure it latches correctly. Slight adjustments can be made to the door
catch if necessary (do not over-tighten this catch, an over-tightened catch will damage the door).
The latch should engage with a slight amount of resistance, yet not be difficult to engage.
•
If the glass is cracked, replace. The glass is held in place by glass clips that are underneath the
airwash brackets. 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.
