Getting Started
Since pellet exhaust can contain ash, soot or sparks, you
must consider the location of:
A. Design, Installation & Location Considerations
• Windows
1. Appliance Location
• Air Intakes
NOTICE: Check building codes prior to installation.
• Installation MUST comply with local, regional, state and
national codes and regulations.
• Air Conditioner
•
Consult insurance carrier, local building inspector, fire
officials or authorities having jurisdiction over restrictions,
installation inspection and permits.
• Overhang, soffits, porch roofs, adjacent walls
• Landscaping, vegetation
When locating vent and venting termination, vent above roof
line when possible.
It is a good idea to plan your installation on paper, using
exact measurements for clearances and floor protection,
before actually beginning the installation
Warning! Risk of Fire Damaged parts could impair safe
operation. Do NOT install damaged, incomplete or substitute
components.
Consideration must be given to:
CAUTION! If burning shelled field corn, you must use approved venting specifically designed for corn to prevent corrosion or degradation. Follow the instructions from the venting
manufacturer.
• Safety, convenience, traffic flow
• Placement of the chimney and chimney connector.
• If you are not using an existing chimney, place the appliance where there will be a clear passage for a factorybuilt listed chimney through the ceiling and roof.
• Installing an optional outside air kit would affect the location of the vent termination.
Recommended Location:
• Above peak
NOTICE: Locating the appliance in a location of
considerable air movement can cause intermittent smoke
spillage from appliance. Do not locate appliance near:
•
Frequently open doors
•
Central heat outlets or returns
Recommended Location:
• Above peak
• Inside heated space
Marginal Location:
• Wind loading possible
Marginal Location:
• Below peak
Location NOT recommended:
• Not the highest point of the roof
• Wind loading possible
Location NOT recommended:
• Too close to tree
• Below adjacent structure
• Lower roof line
• Avoid outside wall
Recommended:
• Insulated exterior chase
in cooler climates

Castile-B FS Pellet Stove
B. Locating Your Appliance & Chimney
E. Negative Pressure
Location of the appliance and chimney will affect
performance.
WARNING! Risk of Asphyxiation! Negative pressure can
cause spillage of combustion fumes and soot.
•
•
Install through the warm airspace enclosed by the building
envelope. This helps to produce more draft, especially
during lighting and die-down of the fire.
Penetrate the highest part of the roof. This minimizes the
effects of wind loading.
Negative pressure results from the imbalance of air available for the appliance to operate properly. It can be strongest in lower levels of the house.
Causes include:
•
Locate termination cap away from trees, adjacent
structures, uneven roof lines and other obstructions.
•
Exhaust fans (kitchen, bath, etc.)
•
Range hoods
•
Minimize the use of chimney offsets.
•
•
Consider the appliance location relative to floor and ceiling
and attic joists.
Combustion air requirements for furnaces, water heaters
and other combustion appliances
•
Clothes dryers
•
Take into consideration the termination requirements on
Page 11.
•
Location of return-air vents to furnace or air conditioning
•
Imbalances of the HVAC air handling system
•
Upper level air leaks such as:
CAUTION
- Recessed lighting
- Attic hatch
• DO NOT CONNECT THIS UNIT TO A CHIMNEY FLUE
SERVICING ANOTHER APPLIANCE.
- Duct leaks
• DO NOT CONNECT TO ANY AIR DISTRIBUTON DUCT
OR SYSTEM.
To minimize the effects of negative air pressure:
C. Thermostat Location
The thermostat’s location will have some effect on the
appliance’s operation. When the thermostat is located close
to the appliance, it may require a slightly higher temperature
setting to keep the rest of the house comfortable. If the
thermostat location is in an adjacent room or on a different
floor level, you will notice higher temperatures near the
appliance.
D. Draft
•
Install the outside air kit with the intake facing prevailing
winds during the heating season
•
Ensure adequate outdoor air for all combustion appliances
and exhaust equipment
•
Ensure furnace and air conditioning return vents are not
located in the immediate vicinity of the appliance
•
Avoid installing the appliance near doors, walkways or
small isolated spaces
•
Recessed lighting should be a “sealed can” design
•
Attic hatches weather stripped or sealed
•
Attic mounted duct work and air handler joints and seams
taped or sealed
Draft is the pressure difference needed to vent appliances
successfully. When an appliance is drafting successfully, all
combustion byproducts are exiting the home through the
chimney.
WARNING
Considerations for successful draft include:
•
•
Fire Hazard.
Preventing negative pressure
Location of appliance and chimney
•
NOTICE: Hearth & Home Technologies assumes no
responsibility for the improper performance of the chimney
system caused by:
• Inadequate draft due to environmental conditions
• Downdrafts
• Tight sealing construction of the structure
• Mechanical exhausting devices
Page 6
7021-130F
•
Do not operate appliance before reading
and understanding operating instructions.
Failure to operate appliance properly may
cause a house fire.

Vent Information
B. Venting Termination Requirements
A. Chimney and Exhaust Connection
CAUTION
1. Chimney & Connector: Use 3 or 4 inch (76-102mm)
diameter type "L" or "PL" venting system. It can be vented
vertically or horizontally.
2. Mobile Home: Approved for all Listed pellet vent. If using
the 3 inch (76mm) vertical Top Vent Adapter Kit or the 3
to 6 inch (76-152mm) Top Vent Offset Adapter, use Listed
double wall flue connector. A Quadra-Fire Outside Air Kit
must be used with manufactured home installations.
3. Residential: The 3 inch (76mm) vertical Top Vent Adapter
Kit and the 3 to 6 inch (76-152mm) Top Vent Offset Adapter
are tested to use 24 gauge single wall flue connector or
Listed double wall flue connector to Class A Listed metal
chimneys, or masonry chimneys meeting International
Conference of Building Officials (ICBO) standards for solid
fuel appliances.
Do not terminate vent in any enclosed or semi-enclosed
area such as a carport, garage, attic, crawl space, under a
sun deck or porch, narrow walkway or closely fenced area,
or any location that can build up a concentration of fumes
such as a stairwell, covered breezeway, etc.
1. Termination must exhaust above air inlet elevation. It
is recommended that at least 60 inches (1.5m) of vertical pipe be installed when appliance is vented directly
through a wall. This will create a natural draft, which
will help prevent the possibility of smoke or odor venting
into the home during a power outage. It will also keep
exhaust from causing a nuisance or hazard by exposing
people or shrubs to high temperatures. The safest and
preferred venting method is to extend the vent vertically
through the roof.
4. INSTALL VENT AT CLEARANCES SPECIFIED BY THE
VENT MANUFACTURER.
5. Secure exhaust venting system to the appliance with at
least 3 screws. Also secure all connector pipe joints with
at least 3 screws through each joint.
2. Distance from doors and opening windows, or gravity or
ventilation air inlets into building:
a. Not less than 48 inches (1.2m) below;
b. Not less than 48 inches (1.2m) horizontally from;
c. Not less than 12 inches (305mm) above.
6. DO NOT INSTALL A FLUE DAMPER IN THE EXHAUST
VENTING SYSTEM OF THIS UNIT.
7. DO NOT CONNECT THIS UNIT TO A CHIMNEY FLUE
SERVING ANOTHER APPLIANCE.
NOTE: All pipe must be welded seam pipe whenever possible. Seal pipe joints with high temperature silicone (500°F
[260°C] minimum rated only). Do not put silicone inside
of pipe.
NOTE: If burning shelled field corn, you must use approved
venting specifically designed for corn. Follow the instructions from the venting manufacturer.
WARNING
Fire Hazard.
• Only LISTED venting components may be
used.
• NO OTHER vent components may be used.
Substitute or damaged vent components may
impair safe operation.
WARNING
Vent surfaces get HOT, can cause burns if
touched. Noncombustible shielding or guards
may be required
May 12, 2014
3. Distance from permanently closed windows:
a. Not less than 12 inches (305mm) below, horizontally
from or above.
4. Distance between bottom of termination and grade should
be 12 inches (305mm) minimum. This is conditional upon
plants in the area, and nature of grade surface. The
grade surface must be a noncombustible material (i.e.,
rock, dirt). The grade surface must not be lawn. Distance
between bottom of termination and public walkway should
be 84 inches (2.13m) minimum.
5
Distance to combustible materials must be 24 inches
(610mm) minimum. This includes adjacent buildings,
fences, protruding parts of the structure, roof overhang,
plants and shrubs, etc.
6. Termination Cap Location (Home Electrical Service)
•
Side-to-side clearance is to be the same as minimum
clearance to vinyl inside corners.
• Clearance of a termination cap below electrical service
shall be the same as minimum clearance to vinyl soffits.
• Clearance of a termination cap above electrical service
will be 12 inches minimum.
•
7021-130F
Location of the vent termination must not obstruct or
interfere with access to the electrical service.

above the diagonal line, a 4 inch (102mm) diameter pipe is required.
The chart reveals that a 90° elbow is 5 times as
restrictive to the flow of exhaust gases under
positive pressure as 1 foot of horizontal pipe, and
a foot of horizontal pipe is twice as restrictive as

Operating Instructions
A. Fuel Size, Material and Storage
Shelled Field Corn (Cont’d)
1. Wood Pellets
Fuel pellets are made from sawdust or wood by-products. If the
source material is hardwood, they can have a higher mineral
content, creating more ash. Fuels containing bark will also
have higher ash content. Minerals and other noncombustible
materials such as sand will turn into a hard, glass-like substance
called a clinker when heated to the extreme temperatures
our firepot reaches. This is what forms clinkers in the bottom
of the firepot. Trees from different areas will vary in mineral
content. That is why some fuels produce more clinkers than
others. Pellets are manufactured in either 1/4 inch or 5/16 inch
(6-8mm) diameter and should be no more than 1-1/2 inches
(38mm) in length. Pellet lengths may even vary by lot from the
same manufacturer which is why the feed rate may need to be
adjusted occasionally. If you burn pellets longer than 1-1/2
inches (38mm) you may have an inconsistent fuel feed rate
and/or missed ignitions.
Pellet fuel quality can greatly fluctuate. We recommend using
premium grade fuel with ash content less than 1%. Even in
some fuel labeled “premium” ash content can vary from bag
to bag and possibly exceed 1%. High ash fuel, or lack of
maintenance, can cause the firepot to fill up and thus create a
potential for smoking, sooting and possible hopper fires.
Always burn dry fuel. Burning fuel with high moisture content
takes heat from the fuel and tends to cool the appliance, robbing
heat from your home. Damp pellet fuel can clog the feed system.
corn used. In cases where it is acceptable for the appliance
to run full time, 100% corn will work after the fire has been
started using wood pellets.
When purchasing corn to burn in your appliance, read the
ingredient label very carefully. Do NOT purchase fuel that
contains any additives such as oils (i.e. soybean oil) and
meals as it will result in poor unit performance. If you are
buying corn the only ingredient that should be listed is corn.
Shelled field corn must be 15% or less moisture content. The
corn must be clean and free from debris. Never burn corn
straight from the field. Stalk parts, excessive fines and cob
remnants, etc. will clog the auger mechanism. Corn with
excessive grain dust must be screened by sifting with 3/16
(4.76mm) inch mesh screening.
Do not burn treated seed corn in your appliance. Seed corn
is treated with chemical pesticides that are harmful or fatal
if swallowed; therefore, seed corn is dangerous to have in
the house, expecially where children can reach it. Burning
treated seed corn in your appliane will void your warranty and
will destroy the exhaust system on the unit.
When changing to a different fuel, be sure to empty the hopper
of the previous fuel and vacuum the hopper before you fill it
with the new fuel.
We recommend that you buy fuel in multi-ton lots whenever
possible. Buying large quantities of fuel at once will greatly
reduce the number of times the feed adjustments will need to
be made. However, we do recommend trying various brands
before purchasing multi-ton lots to ensure your satisfaction.
WARNING
Risk of Chemical Poisoning.
• Do Not burn treated seed corn
• Chemical pesticides are harmful or fatal if
swallowed
WARNING
• Burning treated seed corn will void your
warranty
Fire Risk
• High ash fuels, or lack of maintenance, can cuase the
firepot to overfill. Follow proper shutdown procedure if ash
buildup exceeds half way point in firepot.
• Failure to do so could result in smoking, sooting and possible hopper fires. ll void your warranty
2. Shelled Field Corn
Extensive factory and field testing has demonstrated shelled
field corn to be an efficient and very economical fuel. We
recommend the use of a 50-50 blend of corn and wood pellets.
The only change in operation is that the feed rate may require
a slight adjustment. The BTU output of the appliance varies
slightly compared to pellets, depending on the quality of the
Page 22
3. Storage
Wood pellets should be left in their original sealed bag until
using. This will prevent moisture absorption.
Shelled corn should be stored in a tight container where it will
not absorb moisture from damp or wet floors. This will also
prevent rodents from becoming a problem.
Do not store any pellet fuel within the clearance requirements
or in an area that would hinder routine cleaning and
maintenance.

2. Heat Output Controls
This appliance is equipped with a heat output control
switch that has three settings or burn rates; low, medium
and high. The appliance will turn on and off as the
thermostat demands. When the thermostat calls for heat,
the appliance will start up at the burn rate for which it is
set. If the appliance is set at one of the lower settings, it
will run quieter but take longer to heat up an area than if it
were set at a higher burn rate. Regardless of the burn rate,
when the area is warm enough to satisfy the thermostat,
the appliance will shut off.
1. First, make sure your appliance has been properly
installed and that all safety requirements have been met.
Pay particular attention to the fire protection, venting and
thermostat installation instructions.
2. Double check that the ash drawer and firebox are
empty!
3. Check the position of the thermocouple, located above
the firepot, and make sure that it protrudes approximately
3/4 inch (19mm) into the firepot.
4. Close the front door.
IMPORTANT DETAIL: The tip of the thermocouple must
be in contact with the inside end of the thermocouple
cover or missed ignitions can occur.
D. Starting Your First Fire
1. A thermostat is required for proper operation of this
appliance, except for corn. At this time, fill the hopper
with pellets, set the thermostat to its lowest setting. Plug
the power cord into nearby outlet.
2. The exhaust blower will stay on for approximately 18
minutes even though the thermostat is not calling for heat.
This is normal.
Heat Output Switch
3. Locate the heat output control switch mounted on the
back of the appliance in the upper right corner. Figure
23.1. Turn it to the “high” setting by pushing the top of
the control switch in and then adjust the thermostat to its
highest setting. Remove the right side panel and the red
call light located to the left of the control box will be on.
Figure 24.1 on page 24. This indicates the thermostat is
calling for heat.

WARNING
Fire Hazard.
Keep combustible materials, gasoline
and other flammable vapors and liquids
clear of appliance.
• Do NOT store flammable materials in the appliance’s
vicinity.
• DO NOT USE GASOLINE, LANTERN FUEL, KEROSENE,
CHARCOAL LIGHTER FLUID OR SIMILAR LIQUIDS TO
START OR “FRESHEN UP” A FIRE IN THIS HEATER.
5. For your first fire it will be necessary to press the reset
button once approximately 2 minutes after start up and
again in 5 minutes. This will fill the feed system and allow
the appliance to begin dropping pellets. The appliance
will continue to run as long as the thermostat is calling for
heat.
6. Once the appliance has ignited, let it burn for approximately
15 minutes, then set the thermostat to the desired room
temperature. Adjust the heat output control switch to the
desired setting.
• DO NOT BURN GARBAGE OR FLAMMABLE FLUIDS
SUCH AS GASOLINE, NAPHTHA OR ENGINE OIL.
• DO NOT USE CHEMICALS OF FLUIDS TO START THE
FIRE.
• Keep all such liquids well away from the heater while it is in
use.
• Combustible materials may ignite.

E. Fire Characteristics
G. Feed Rate Adjustment Instructions
A properly adjusted fire with the heat output control switch
set on “high” has a short active flame pattern that extends
out of the firepot approximately 4 inches (102mm). If the fire
has tall flames with black tails and seems somewhat lazy,
the feed rate will need to be reduced. This is done by sliding
the fuel adjustment control rod down, which will reduce the
feed. If the fire is not 4 inches (102mm) tall, slide the fuel
adjustment control rod up to increase the feed. A medium
and low setting will give a shorter flame. The flame will rise
and fall somewhat. This is normal.
F. Iginition Cycles
The feed adjustment control rod is factory set, and should
be adequate for most fuels. However, if the flame height is
too high or too low, you will need to adjust the feed rate. Wait
until the appliance has been burning for 15 minutes before
making your adjustments and allow 15 minutes for feed
adjustment to take effect.
1. Loosen the set screw 1/4 to 1/2 turn during set-up
of appliance. This will allow movement of the feed
adjustment control rod. Do not re-tighten set screw.
Figure 24.2.
2. Loosen the thumb screw.
1. During each ignition cycle, it is normal to see some
smoke in the firebox. The smoke will stop once the
fire starts.
2. The convection blower will automatically turn on after
your appliance has reached the set temperature on
the “high” setting. This blower transfers heat from your
appliance into the room, and will continue to run after
the thermostat has stopped calling for heat until the
appliance has cooled down.
3. Adjust the feed adjustment control rod upward towards
the "+" symbol to increase the feed rate and flame height
or down towards the "-" symbol, to decrease the feed rate
and flame height.
4. Re-tighten the thumb screw.
3. Occasionally the appliance may run out of fuel and shut
itself down. When this happens, the red call light will
be on. Figure 24.1. To restart it, fill the hopper and
press the reset button. (See Figure 23.1, page 23).
When you press the reset button the red call light will
go out. Release the button and the light will come back
on. You should see a fire shortly. If not, follow the
instructions on page 23, of “Starting Your First Fire”.

H. Frequently Asked Questions
ISSUES
SOLUTIONS
1. Metallic noise.
1. Noise is caused by metal expanding and contracting as
it heats up and cools down, similar to the sound produced by a furnace or heating duct. This noise does not
affect the operation or longevity of your appliance.
2.
Ash buildup on glass.
2. This is normal. Clean the glass.
3.
Glass has turned dirty.
3. Excessive build up of ash. The lower burn settings will
produce more ash, the higher burn settings produce
less. The more it burns on low the more frequent cleaning of the glass is required.
4.
Fire has tall flames with black tails and is lazy.
4. The feed rate needs to be reduced or the firepot needs
cleaning. Heat exchanger or exhaust blower needs
cleaning.
5.
Smokey start-up or puffs of smoke from the airwash. 5. Either the firepot is dirty or there is too much fuel at
start-up and not enough air. Close down feed rate 1/4
inch at a time until this no longer happens.
6.
Large flame at start-up.
6. This is normal. Flame will settle down once the fire is
established.

Maintaining & Servicing Your Appliance
C. General Maintenance
A. Proper Shutdown Procedure
1. Types of Fuel
Depending on the type of fuel you are burning will dictate how
often you have to clean your firepot.
CAUTION
If the fuel you are burning has a high dirt or ash content or
you are burning shelled field corn, it may be necessary to
clean the firepot more than once a day.
Shock and Smoke Hazard
• Turn down thermostat, let appliance completely
cool and exhaust blower must be off. Now you
can unplug appliance before servicing.
Dirty fuel will cause clinkers to form in the firepot. A clinker
is formed when dirt, ash or a non-burnable substance is
heated to 2000F (1093C) and becomes glass-like. See
“C” page 33 in this section for more details on fuels with
high ash content.
• Smoke spillage into room can occur if appliance
is not cool before unplugging.
• Risk of shock if appliance not unplugged before
servicing appliance.
Follow the detailed instructions found in this

Ash Removal from Firebox (Cont’d)
Frequency: Daily or more often as needed
By: Homeowner
e. The 2 cleaning slide plates must be fully closed when
cleaning is complete. See Disposal of Ashes.
a. The appliance must be in complete shutdown and cool
and the exhaust blower off. If you are just cleaning the
firepot, there is no need to unplug the appliance.
WARNING
b. Pull firepot cleaning rod OUT a couple of times to help
shake debris loose. If rod is hard to pull, it may be
necessary to use your firepot clean-out tool to chip
away material that has built up on the bottom plate of
the firepot and to push out any clinkers. Larger clinkers
may have to be removed from the top of the firepot.
Corn clinkers can be especially difficult to break up.
c. The firepot floor plate must be fully closed when
finished. See Figure 25.1 on page 25.
Disposal of Ashes
• Ashes should be placed in metal container
with tight fitting lid.
• Ashes should be retained in closed container
until all cinders have thoroughly cooled.
4. Cleaning Ash Pan
•
•
WARNING
Frequency: Weekly or every 5 bags of fuel
By: Homeowner
Locate the ash pan underneath the firepot. Open the
bottom ash door and slide the ash pan straight out.
Empty into a non-combustible container and re-install
ash pan. See Disposal of Ashes.
Fire Risk
• NEVER pull firepot cleaning rod or cleaning
slide plates out when appliance is operating.
• The cleaning slide plates must be fully
CLOSED when appliance is operating.
•. Hot pellets may fall into ashpan and start a fire
or mis-starts due to lack of vacuum.
5. Disposal of Ashes
•
•
Frequency: As needed
By: Homeowner
Ashes should be placed in a steel container with a
tight-fitting lid. The container of ashes should be moved
outdoors immediately and placed on a non-combustible
floor or on the ground, well away from combustible
materials, pending final disposal.
3. Ash Removal from Firebox
•
•
Frequency: Weekly or more frequently depending on
ash build-up.
By: Homeowner
a. There must not be any hot ashes in the firebox during
cleaning so allow the appliance to completely cool.
The firebox ash should be removed every time the
firepot is cleaned. Frequent cleaning of the ash in the
firebox will help slow down the build-up of ash in the
exhaust blower and vent system.
b. Plug in your appliance, if unplugged, and turn the
thermostat on and immediatley shut it off to start the
exhaust blower on its cycle time. It will pull fly ash out
the exhaust instead of into the room.
c. Open cast hinged face. Directly underneath the
firebox door and to the left and right of the firepot are 2
cleaning slide plates with finger holes. Pull both slide
plates out and then open the glass door. Sweep the
remaining ash from the firebox into the 2 open holes.
A paint brush works well for this. Close slide plates.
d. This ash is deposited in the same ash pan as the
firepot debris. The ash pan should be emptied every
time you clean the firebox. Remember to place
the ash and debris into a metal or noncombustible
container.
Page 30
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 thoroughly cooled. Other
waste shall not be placed in this container.
6. Cleaning the Hopper
•
•
Frequency: Monthly or after burning 1 ton of fuel
By: Homeowner
After burning approximately 1 ton of fuel you will need to
clean the hopper to prevent sawdust build-up.
A combination of sawdust and pellets on the auger
reduces the amount of fuel supply to the firepot. This
can result in nuisance shutdowns and mis-starts.
a. The appliance must be in complete shutdown. Allow
the appliance to completely cool down.
b. Empty the hopper of any remaining pellets.
c.

of into the room. Open the cast hinged face to access
the 2 cleaning rods. Figure 31.1.
b. A more thorough cleaning is needed to remove the
excess ash that is left behind from the use of the
cleaning rods for the heat exchanger tubes.
c. The ash will be resting on the back of the baffle.
This will require removing the cast baffle. Please
refer to page 35 for a detailed explanation of
removing the baffle.
b. Locate the 2 rods directly underneath the heat
exchanger tubes. Rods are bent at a 90° angle for
easy handling.

By: Homeowner
Frequency: Yearly or more frequently depending on
ash build-up.
By: Qualified Service Technician/Homeowner
Be sure the appliance is allowed to cool, has been unplugged
and the exhaust blower is off.
The products of combustion will contain small particles of fly
ash. The fly ash will collect in the exhaust venting system
and restrict the flow of the flue gases.
At start-up if there is incomplete combustion, or if there is a
shutdown or incorrect operation of the appliance it will lead
to some soot formation. This will collect in the exhaust venting system.
The venting system may need to be cleaned at least once a
year or more often depending upon the quality of your fuel
or if there is a lot of horizontal pipe sections. Ash will build
up more quickly in the horizontal sections.

D. High Ash Fuel Content Maintenance
•
•
Frequency: When the ash build-up exceeds more
than half way up the firepot.
By: Homeowner
Poor quality pellet fuel, or lack of maintenance, can create
conditions that make the firepot fill quickly with ashes and
clinkers.
This condition makes the appliance susceptible to overfilling
the firepot with pellets which may result in smoking, sooting
and possible hopper fires. Figure 33.1 shows an example
where the firepot overfills, pellets back up into the feed tube
and ash has accumulated in the firebox.
Pellets Back Up
In Feed Tube
Firepot Overfills
Ash Build Up in Firebox
Figure 33.1
An inefficient and non-economical method of burning of fuel
caused by poor quality pellet fuel is shown in Figure 33.2.
The correct flame size when good quality, premium pellet
fuel is burned is shown in Figure 33.3.
Incorrect
If the ash buildup exceeds the half way point in the firepot
IMMEDIATE ATTENTION AND CLEANING IS REQUIRED.
E. Soot or Creosote Fire
Establish a routine for the fuel, wood burner and firing technique. Check daily for creosote build-up until experience
shows how often you need to clean to be safe. Be aware that
the hotter the fire the less creosote is deposited, and weekly
cleaning may be necessary in the mild weather even though
monthly cleaning may be enough in the coldest months.
Contact your local municipal or provincial fire authority for
information on how to handle a chimney fire.

Reference Materials
When describing the location of a component,
it is always AS YOU FACE THE FRONT OF
THE APPLIANCE.
7. Heat Exchangers
The heat exchangers transfer hot air from the exhaust system
into convecton air. Remove the stainless steel top baffle to
access the heat exchangers. There are 2 clean out rods
located under the heat exchangers.
A. Component Function
1. Control Box
8. Heat Output Switch
a. The control box is located on upper right side of
appliance, behind the right side panel and above the
vacuum switch.
b. There is a light located inside of the control box. The
internal light will turn green when the appliance has
reached a temperature of 175F (79C) in the firepot.
and will turn red when it reaches 600oF (315C).
c. There is also an internal blue light located in the upper
left corner of the control box. When you plug in the
appliance the blue light will automatically start blinking
6 times in a row for 60 seconds and then will stop.
NOTE:
The heat output switch is located on the upper right rear
corner. The funtion of the heat ouput switch is to regulate
the burn rates; low, medium and high settings.
9. Hopper Switch
The hopper switch is located in the upper right hand corner
of the hopper. This switch is designed to shut down the feed
motor whenever the hopper lid is opened.
10. Igniter
The igniter is mounted on the base of the firepot. Combustion
air travels over the red hot igniter creating super heated air
that ignites the pellets.
11. Junction Box And Wiring Harness
Do NOT open the control box. This will void the
warranty. FolIow proper shutdown procedures first if
you need to plug in or remove the control box.
The junction box is located on the right side of the appliance,
behind the right side panel. The junction box and wiring
harness are replaced as one component.
2. Convection Blower
12. Power Supply
The convection blower is mounted at the bottom rear of the
appliance. There are 2 impellers, one on each side of the
motor. The convection blower pushes heated air through the
heat exchange system into the room.
The combustion blower is located on the right side of
appliance and is designed to pull the exhaust from the
appliance and push it out through the venting system.
The power outlet is located on the right rear of the appliance
on the front of the junction box. Check the wall receptacle
for 120 volt, 60 Hz (standard current). Make sure the outlet
is grounded and has the correct polarity. A good surge
protector is recommended. When operating with a generator
you need a least 600 watts of power, or with an inverter at
least 800 watts of power available for the appliance during
the start cycle.
4. Feed System
13. Red Call Light
The feed system is located on the right side of the appliance
and can be removed as an entire assembly. The assembly
includes the feed motor, mounting bracket, bearing and feed
spring (auger). The hollow feed spring (auger) pulls pellets
up the feed tube from the hopper area and drops them down
the feed chute into the firepot.
The red call light is on the front of the junction box, behind
the control box. The function of the red call light is to indicate
that the thermostat is calling for heat.
3. Combustion Blower
5. Firepot
The firepot is made of high quality ductile iron and has a
cleaning pull-out rod. The floor of the firepot opens for
cleaning when you pull out the rod. Be sure that the floor
returns to a completely closed position or your appliance will
not operate properly.
6. Fuse
The fuse is located on the front of the junction box on the
right side of appliance. The fuse will blow should a short
occur and shut off power to the appliance.
May 12, 2014
14. Reset Button

the upper right corner of the side panel under the heat output
control switch. The function of the button is to momentarily
open the thermostat circuit, which restarts the system.
15. Thermocouple
The thermocouple is located on top of the firepot inside
the thermocouple cover (ceramic protection tube). The
thermocouple sends a millivolt signal to the control box
indicating the preset temperatures of the green and red lights
have been obtained.
