IMPORTANT SAFETY DATA:
Please read this entire Owner’s Manual before installing or operating this ENVIRO Pellet
Stove. Failure to follow these instructions may result in property damage, bodily injury
or even death. Contact your local building or fire official to obtain a permit and any information on
installation restrictions and inspection requirements for your area.
To prevent the possibility of a fire, ensure that the appliance is properly installed by adhering
to the installation instructions. An ENVIRO dealer will be happy to assist you in obtaining information
with regards to your local building codes and installation restrictions.
Be sure to maintain the structural integrity of the home when passing a vent through walls, ceilings, or
roofs.
The stove’s exhaust system works with negative combustion chamber pressure and a slightly positive
chimney pressure. It is very important to ensure that the exhaust system be sealed and airtight. The ash
pan and viewing door must be locked securely for proper and safe operation of the pellet stove.
Do not burn with insufficient combustion air. A periodic check is recommended to ensure proper
combustion air is admitted to the combustion chamber. Setting the proper combustion air is achieved by
adjusting the slider damper located on the left side of the stove.
When installing the 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 the structural integrity of the home is maintained and all
construction meets local building codes.
Minor soot or creosote may accumulate when the stove is operated under incorrect conditions such as an
extremely rich burn (black tipped, lazy orange flames).
If you have any questions with regard to your stove or the above-mentioned information, please feel free
to contact your local dealer for further clarification and comments.
SAFETY WARNINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS:
Caution: Do not connect to any air distribution duct or system.
Do not burn garbage or flammable fluids such as gasoline, naptha or engine oil.
Unit hot while in operation. Keep children, clothing and furniture away. Contact
may cause skin burns.
SOOT: Operation of the stove with insufficient combustion air will result in the formation of soot which
will collect on the glass, the heat exchanger, the exhaust vent system, and may stain the outside of the
house. This is a dangerous situation and is inefficient. Frequently check your stove and adjust the slider/
damper as needed to ensure proper combustion. See: “INSTALLATION - SLIDER/DAMPER SETTING”.

Introduction
ELECTRICAL: The use of a surge protected power bar is recommended. The unit must be
grounded. The grounded electrical cord should be connected to a standard 220-240 volts (2.92-3.18
Amps), 50 hertz electrical outlet and also must be accessible. If this power cord should become damaged,
a replacement power cord must be purchased from the manufacturer or a qualified ENVIRO dealer. Be
careful that the electrical cord is not trapped under the appliance and that it is clear of any hot surfaces
or sharp edges. This unit’s maximum power requirement is 700 watts.
GLASS: Do not abuse the glass by striking or slamming the door. Do not attempt to operate the stove
with broken glass. The stove uses ceramic glass. Replacement glass must be purchased from an ENVIRO
dealer. Do not attempt to open the door and clean the glass while the unit is in operation or if glass is
hot. To clean the glass, use a soft cotton cloth and mild window cleaner, gas or wood stove glass cleaner,
or take a damp paper towel and dip into the fly ash. This is a very mild abrasive and will not damage the
glass.
FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS: Never use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal lighter
fluid, or similar liquids to start or “freshen up” a fire in the heater. Keep all such liquids well away from
the heater while it is in use.
SMOKE DETECTOR: Smoke detectors should be installed and maintained in the structure when
installing and operating a pellet burning appliance.
OPERATION: The ash pan and door must be closed securely for proper and safe operation of the pellet
stove. Also ensure all gaskets on the door are checked and replaced when necessary.
INSTALLATION: Be sure to maintain the structural integrity of your home when passing a vent through
walls, ceilings, or roofs. It is recommended that the unit be secured into its position in order to avoid any
displacement.
DO NOT INSTALL A FLUE DAMPER IN THE EXHAUST VENTING SYSTEM OF THIS UNIT.
DO NOT CONNECT THIS UNIT TO A CHIMNEY FLUE SERVING ANOTHER APPLIANCE.
FRESH AIR: Outside Fresh Air is optional. Consider all large air moving devices when installing your unit
and provide room air accordingly. Limited air for combustion may result in poor performance, smoking
and other side effects of poor combustion.
If you have any questions with regards to your stove or the above-mentioned information, please feel
free to contact your local dealer for further clarification and comments.
SINCE SHERWOOD INDUSTRIES LTD. HAS NO CONTROL OVER THE INSTALLATION OF
YOUR STOVE, SHERWOOD INDUSTRIES LTD. GRANTS NO WARRANTY IMPLIED OR STATED
FOR THE INSTALLATION OR MAINTENANCE OF YOUR STOVE. THEREFORE, SHERWOOD
INDUSTRIES LTD. ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGE(S).

DECIDING WHERE TO LOCATE YOUR PELLET APPLIANCE:
1. Check clearances to combustibles (see INSTALLATION - CLEARANCES TO COMBUSTIBLES - FREESTANDING, INSTALLATION
- ALCOVE CLEARANCES - FREESTANDING, and INSTALLATION - CLEARANCES TO COMBUSTIBLES - FIREPLACE INSERT.
2. Do not obtain combustion air from an attic, garage or any unventilated space. Combustion air may
be obtained from a ventilated crawlspace.
3. Do not install the stove in a bedroom.
4. You can vent the stove through an exterior wall behind the unit or connect it to an existing masonry
or metal chimney (must be lined if the chimney is over 6” (15 cm) diameter, or over 28 inches² (180
cm²) cross sectional area). An interior vent can be used with approved pipe passing through the
ceiling and roof.
5. Locate the stove in a large and open room that is centrally located in the house. This will optimize
heat circulation.
6. The power cord is 8 feet (2.43 m) long and may require a grounded extension cord to reach the
nearest electrical outlet.
REMOVING PELLET STOVE FROM PALLET:
To remove your new stove from its pallet, remove the two (2) screws securing the bottom to the pallet.
Freestanding: One screw can be easily seen from behind but to access the second screw the ashpan must
be removed.
Fireplace Insert: There is one screw on either side of the bottom.

INSTALLATION OF PEDESTAL AND LEVELING LEGS - FIREPLACE INSERT:
There are two parts to the Meridian insert pedestal and they can be found inside the hopper. Place unit
on its back. Two (2) hex head screws are used on each side of the pedestal (refer to Figure 13). Using a
5/16” wrench or socket attach the pedestal to the bottom of the unit.
OPTIONAL:
There are two (2) leveling legs and they can be found inside
the manual bag. Each leveling leg consists of a long bolt, a hex
nut, a washer, and a square bolt with clip (see Figure 8). For
installation of the leveling legs the unit should be on its back and
a 1⁄2” wrench is required for adjustments.
Install the square bolts into the square holes in the back corners
of the bottom. The square bolt should be inserted from inside the
unit so that the clip will be facing up.
Thread hex nut onto the bolt till it is
approximately 1” (25 mm) from the bolt head,
slide washer onto bolt. Thread the bolt into
the square nut so length of the bolt shown is
the approximately height needed for leveling.
When the unit is up right and the bolts can be
adjusted to the exact height required. To lock
the bolts at a height tighten the hex nut and
washer against the square bolt
Figure 8: Square
Bolt.

fumes such as stairwells, covered breezeway, etc.
(Termination not allowed)
2. Vent surfaces can become hot enough to cause burns if touched by children. Non-combustible shielding
or guards may be required.
3. Termination must exhaust above the inlet elevation. It is recommended that at least five feet of
vertical pipe be installed outside when the appliance is vented directly through a wall, to create some
natural draft to prevent the possibility of smoke or odor during appliance shut down or power failure.
This will keep exhaust from causing a nuisance or hazard from exposing people or shrubs to high
temperatures. In any case, the safest and preferred venting method is to extend the vent through the
roof vertically.
4. Distance from the bottom of the termination and grade is 12” (30 cm) minimum. This is conditional
upon the plants and nature of grade surface. The exhaust gases are hot enough to ignite grass, plants
and shrubs located in the vicinity of termination. The grade surface must not be lawn.
5. If the unit is incorrectly vented or the air to fuel mixture is out of balance, a slight discoloration of the
exterior of the house might occur. Since these factors are beyond the control of Sherwood Industries
Ltd, we grant no guarantee against such incidents.
NOTE: Venting terminals shall not be recessed into walls or siding.

are met, install
vent termination. The stainless steel cap termination manufactured by the vent manufacturer is
recommended. However, when the vent terminates several feet above ground level and there are no
trees, plants, etc. within several feet, a 45° elbow can be used as termination. The elbow must be
turned down to prevent rain from entering.
NOTE:
• Some horizontal through wall installations may require a “T” and 3 to 5 feet (91 to 152 cm) of vertical
pipe outside the building to help naturally draft in the unit.
• This may be required if a proper burn cannot be maintained, after the stove has been tested and the
airflow set.
• This is due to the back pressure in the
exhaust caused by airflow around the
structure.
• All sections of pipe must have three (3)
screws evenly spaced and all horizontal
and vertical vent sections located within the
house must have a bead of high temperature
silicone installed on the male end of the pipe
before installation to create a gas tight seal.

INSTALLATION AND REMOVAL OF CONTROL PANEL IN THE SURROUND PANEL - FIREPLACE INSERT:
When installing the circuit board control panel into the surround panel, the surround does not need to be
assembled. The circuit board will be found in the firebox.
Place the circuit board control panel on the backside of the right
surround panel so the hinge is on the outside and the top and
bottom holes on the control panel line up with those on the
surround. Attach using two (2) T-20 screws through the front of the
surround into the circuit board control panel.
����
After the surround has been assembled and is ready to be installed
on the unit plug the wiring harness into the control panel (see
Figure 30).
REMOVAL:
When maintenance is required on the unit the surround must be
removed. Pull the surround straight up till it stops then pull it out
about 4” (10 cm) and rest the surround on top of the unit while the
control panel is removed or disconnected.
If electrical connection is required for the maintenance remove the
circuit board control panel from the surround.

ASSEMBLY AND INSTALLATION OF INSERT SURROUND PANELS - FIREPLACE INSERT:
The trim set for your surround panel must be installed before
installing the surround panel onto the unit, if not already
done.
1. To assemble the surround panels, lay the panels face
down on a soft flat surface and align the outer edges of
the sides with the top panel. Using four (4) T-20 screws
up through the side panels into the top (see Figure 32).
2. Remove the backing off the magnets and stick them inside
the trim pieces as shown in Figure 33.
3. Attach one side trim to the top trim, using a corner bracket
(see Figure 34) to secure pieces together. There are two
(2) main pieces to each corner bracket (see Figure 35).
When installing the corner pieces into the trim, the “B
FACE” sides must face each other and the screw heads
are to face out. With the bracket in place and the top and
a side trim snug together, use a flat head screwdriver to
turn the two (2) screws in the bracket to tighten it into
the trim.
4. Slide the two (2) attached trim pieces onto the surround

Installation
THERMOSTAT INSTALLED:
This control board can be placed into two (2) different modes:
HI / LOW OPERATION: When the jumper J9 is not jumped then the control board is in a HI / LOW
mode operation. If the unit has been placed in the HI / LOW mode, the unit will be taken to a low or
idle setting when the thermostat is not calling for heat. When the thermostat calls for heat, the unit will
go to the setting that is displayed on the control board Heat Indicator. If the heating load is not great
enough when the stove is on low, the high limit switch will turn the stove off and the switch will have
to be manually reset. To reset the high limit switch, remove the right cabinet side. The switch is found
behind the control panel. Avoid setting off the high limit switch.
A) HI / LOW: When the
jumper is placed on
only one of the J9 pins,
then the control board
is in a HI / LOW mode
of thermostat operation
(factory setting).
B) ON / OFF: If both
pins of J9 are jumped
(covered), the control
board is in an ON / OFF
mode of thermostat
operation.
Remove jumper wire and install thermostat
wires here
Figure 42: Pin Placement on Circuit Board.
ON / OFF OPERATION: If
the control board is placed with
J9 jumped then the control
board is in a ON / OFF mode
of operation. In the ON /OFF
thermostat mode, when the
thermostat calls for heat, the
unit will go through an ignition
sequence and light the stove.
Once lit the unit will operate at
the selected setting displayed on
the control board Heat Output
Indicator. Once the thermostat
stops calling for heat, the unit
will stop feeding pellets and
begin its shut down sequence
until cold then turn off.
1. Install the Low Voltage
Thermostat
(maximum
24V) in a location that is
not to close too the unit but
will effectively monitor the
desired area to be heated.
2. Open the right cab side to expose thermostat wires and disconnect. Install 18 gauge (see WIRING
DIAGRAM) or heavier wire through the grommet in the back, from the stove to the thermostat. Connect
thermostat wires to red wires provided.
3. To set the thermostat jumper to the desired mode, remove the two (2) screws holding the circuit board
control panel in place. Lower the board and pull out to change jumper.
SLIDER/DAMPER SETTING:
THE SLIDER / DAMPER MUST BE SET AT TIME OF INSTALLATION, IT IS USED TO REGULATE
THE AIRFLOW THROUGH THE PELLET STOVE.
A Qualified Service Technician or Installer must set the Slider Damper.
The slider damper should be set only on a hot stove (operating for thirty (30) minutes or more) by placing
a Magnahelic Pressure Gauge in the firebox (test port is located in the center of the stove just below
the door opening). Set the slider damper so that the pressure reads 0.11” w.c. (.028 KPa) on HIGH
26
Installation
HEAT LEVEL and when turned down to LOW HEAT LEVEL, a 0.07” to 0.11” w.c. (0.018 to 0.028
KPa). Some fuels may require higher or lower settings.
The pressure readings are taken through a hole in the front of the firebox under the door, using a
Magnehelic Gauge.

Note: Some parts
have been removed in order
to see components more clearly.
Figure 44: Slider / Damper
The slider damper is located behind the left cab side. The door must be open for the cab side to be
removed on all models. On freestanding model loosen the two T-20 torx screws, one above and one
below hinge, swing open left panel to access. On insert model remove the two (2) T-20 torx screws on
the front, one above and one below hinge, and the one T-20 at the top of the cab side under the top
front.
The combustion exhaust blower is a variable speed blower controlled by the heat output button. This
blower will decrease the vacuum pressure inside the stove and as the heat output button is turned down.
The vacuum pressure inside the firebox will increase as the combustion exhaust blower increases in
speed (higher heat output setting).
• If the fire should happen to go out and the heat output indicator has been set on the lowest setting,
the Slider Damper should be pushed in slightly, decreasing the air in the firebox.
• If, after long periods of burning, the fire builds up and overflows the burn pot or there is a build up
of clinkers, this would be a sign that the pellet quality is poor, this requires more primary air, the slider
damper must be pulled out to compensate. Pulling the slider damper out gives the fire more air.
The easiest way to make sure that an efficient flame is achieved is to understand the characteristics of
the fire.
• A tall, lazy flame with dark orange tips requires more air – Open slider (pull out) slightly.
• A short, brisk flame, like a blowtorch, has too much air – Close slider (push in) slightly.
• If the flame is in the middle of these two characteristics with a bright yellow/orange, active flame
with no black tips then the air is set for proper operation.
SPECIAL NOTES:
Pellet quality is a major factor in how the pellet stove will operate. If the pellets have a high moisture
content or ash content the fire will be less efficient and has a higher possibility of the fire building up and
creating clinkers (hard ash build-up). If this happens, pull the Slider Damper out slightly to increase the
air flow to the fire.
27
Troubleshooting
DO NOT:
● Service the stove with wet hands. The stove is an electrical appliance, which may pose a shock hazard
if handled improperly. Only qualified technicians should deal with possible internal electrical failures.
● Do not remove from the firebox any screws without penetrating oil lubrication.
● Hold the ON / OFF BUTTON down. This is a momentary contact switch and can be damaged if held
down too long.
WHAT TO DO IF:
1. The stove will not start.
2. The stove will not operate when hot.
3. The exhaust blower will not function normally.
4. Light # 2 on Heat output bar flashing.
5. The auger motor will not function normally.
6. The 200 °F (93 °C) high limit temperature sensor has tripped.
7. The convection blower will not function normally.
8. Ignitor- the pellets will not light.
9. Control settings (Heat Level) has no effect on the fire.
10. The stove keeps going out.
*NOTE: All troubleshooting procedures should be carried out by qualified technicians or
installers.
1. The stove will not start.
üMake sure the stove is plugged in and the wall outlet is supplying power.
üPush the ON /OFF button. You may need to wait approximately 30 seconds for circuit board to initiate
the stove is on.
üIf the control board has been placed in the on/off thermostat mode, then turn the thermostat up to
call for heat.
üCheck the heat level indicator. - If the # 2 light is flashing refer to “4. Light # 2 on Heat output bar
flashing.”)
üCheck the fuses on the circuit board (see “TROUBLESHOOTING - FUSES”).
üIf the unit still does not start, contact your local service dealer for service.
2. The stove will not operate when hot.
üCheck the heat level indicator if a fire is not detected, or if the fire has gone out the #3 light will
flash because the exhaust temperature sensor’s contacts have opened.
üCheck the hopper for fuel.
üIncorrect air damper setting. - Excessive air may consume the fire too quickly before the next drop of
fuel, leaving completely unburned fuel in the burn pot liner. - Insufficient air will cause build up, further
restricting the air flow through the burn pot liner. This in turn will cause the fuel to burn cold and very
slowly. Fuel may build up and smother the fire. In this case clean the burn pot. (Note: the unit may
require a change to the vent system or installation of fresh air to correct air to fuel ratio
problems).
üCombustion blower failure. - The combustion blower is not turning fast enough to generate the proper
vacuum in the fire box. Visual check – is the blower motor turning.
üCheck the exhaust blower voltage across the blower wires (>=220V on #5 setting and >= 165V on
#1 setting). – Replace the Circuit Board if the Voltage reading is less than 160V. with a line voltage
>220V AC.
üCheck vacuum levels in the exhaust channel by bypassing the vacuum switch, then remove the vacuum
28
Troubleshooting
hose from vacuum switch. Check exhaust vacuum readings by placing the open end of the vacuum
hose on a Magnahelic Gauge (readings must be above 0.18” to 0.20” W.C. (44.8 to 49.8 Pa) on low
fire). If the motor fails to reach a 0.10” W.C. readings, then replace the combustion blower.
üPoor quality fuel – insufficient energy in the fuel to produce enough heat to keep the stove burning or
operational.
üExhaust temperature sensor failure. – Bypass sensor located on exhaust blower if stove now operates
properly, the unit may require cleaning or a new sensor. Contact your local dealer for service.
üThe burn pot liner may require cleaning. Build up in the burn pot will cause the unit to shut off.
üCheck the fuses on the circuit board (see “TROUBLESHOOTING - FUSES”).
üContact your local dealer for service.
3. The exhaust motor will not function normally.
üOpen the left side access panel; check all connections against the wiring diagram.
üSee “2. The stove will not operate when hot.” Section.
4. Light # 2 on Heat output bar flashing
(The Vacuum Switch contacts have opened for more than 15 sec.)
üPinch, break or blockage in vacuum hose - check hose for pinch points or damage, replace or re-route
as required. Blow out vacuum hose
üBlocked hose barb on exhaust channel - use a paper clip to clean out hose barb or remove the vacuum
hose from the vacuum switch and blow into the hose to remove blockage.
üBlocked exhaust / venting system - have stove and venting cleaned and inspected.
üSevere negative pressure in area where unit is installed - check the operation by opening a window,
does this solve the problem? If it does, install fresh air intake to unit or room. Venting system may
require vertical section to move termination into a low pressure zone.
üVacuum switch failure - bypass the vacuum switch, if this corrects the problem check for above problems
before replacing the vacuum switch.
üDamage to gray wires between circuit board and vacuum switch - inspect wires and connectors
üCombustion blower failure - the combustion blower is not turning fast enough to generate the proper
vacuum in the exhaust channel. Visual check; is the blower motor turning? Check the exhaust blower
voltage across the blower wires (>=220V on #5 setting and >= 165V on #1 setting). – Replace the
Circuit Board if the Voltage reading is less than 160V. with a line voltage >220V AC.
üCheck vacuum levels in the exhaust channel by bypassing the vacuum switch, then remove the Vacuum
hose from Vacuum Switch. Check exhaust vacuum readings by placing the open end of the Vacuum
Hose on a Magnahelic Gauge. (readings must be above .10” W.C. on low fire).
If the motor fails to reach a 0.10” W.C. readings, then replace the combustion blower
To reset Circuit Board after a trouble code - push the ON/OFF button
5. The auger motor will not function normally.
üThe burn pot liner may require cleaning. Build up in the burn pot will cause the unit to shut off.
üCheck for obstructions in the hopper system.
üEnsure door is closed and ash pan is closed. The auger motor will stop if there is not enough vacuum
in the stove.
üCall your local dealer for service.
Auger light flashes but auger motor does not turn at all.
üIf the auger gear box does not turn but the motor’s armature does try to spin then the auger is jammed.
– Try to break apart jam by poking at the jam through the drop tube. If this fails then empty the hopper
and remove the auger cover **remember to re-seal the cover after installation**
üCheck the fuses on the circuit board (see “TROUBLESHOOTING - FUSES”).
29
Troubleshooting
6. The 200 °F ( 93 °C) high limit temperature sensor has tripped.
üReset sensor and determine cause – was it convection blower failure or 160 °F ( 71 °C) temperature
sensor failure? Bypass the 160 °F ( 71 °C) sensor, does the convection blower come on high? If no,
replace the blower. If yes, replace sensor (located on the left side of the firewall).
üCheck the fuses on the circuit board (see “TROUBLESHOOTING - FUSES”).
7. The convection blower will not function normally.
üClean all grill openings at the back and below unit .
üPress the fan button; does the fan come on? Press again to verify that the blower turns on; if, not
contact your local dealer for service.
8. Ignitor- the pellets will not light.
(Everything else in the stove operates but the ignitor will not light the pellets.)
üMake sure the burn pot liner is up tight and square to the ignitor tube by pushing the burn pot back
against the ignitor tube.
üCheck to see if the exhaust blower is operating. If not, contact your local dealer for service.
üCheck the fuses on the circuit board (see “TROUBLESHOOTING - FUSES”).
NOTE: The ignitor should be bright orange in color. If not replace the ignitor.
9. Control settings (Heat Level) has no effect on the fire.
üNote: If the system light is flashing the control board has complete control of the unit. When the units
system light becomes solid then control of the unit is given back to the operator.
üIf there is no control of the heat level button make sure the thermostat is calling for heat.
üCall your local dealer for service.
10. The stove keeps going out.
a) If the stove goes out and leaves fresh unburned pellets or cigarette-like ashes in the burn pot liner,
the fire is going out before the stove shuts off.
üCheck to see that the slider / damper is in the correct position.
üTurn the heat level up slightly (poor quality pellets will require slightly higher settings).
üSet the auger trim till the #1 and #5 lights are illuminated.
b) If the stove goes out and there are partially burned pellets left in the burn pot liner, the stove has shut
down due to a lack of air, exhaust temperature, or power failure.
üAdjust the slider / damper.
üCheck to see if the stove needs a more complete cleaning.
üTurn the heat level up slightly (poor quality pellets will require slightly higher settings).
üDid the power go out?
üContact your local dealer for service.
FUSES:
F1 is the fuse to the inside of the circuit board controls. If F1 has blown there may have been an input
power overload or a short in the convection fan.
F2 fuse closest fuse to the outside edge of the circuit board controls. If fuse F2 has blown then there
was a electrical overload problem with one of the following parts: ignitor, auger motor, high limit switch,
or exhaust blower.
