Well since I posted this review, the distribution motor assembly stopped working. It took an act of God to get US Stove Company to responded to calls and emails. Their on-line chat is a joke, it is always off-line. When I was finally able to get a real person on the phone they refused to listen to me as to what part I needed and they sent me the wrong part! Since then it has taken me hours to get through to them and only now have been able to order the right part ( I hope). They were not apologetic at all and didn't seem to care that the stove had only been in operation for 2 months before it broke! Also did not care that this was our only source of heat in this particular wing of the house! I have reported them to the BBB.Which by the way is also having a difficult time contacting the company!!! Please do not purchase from US Stove Company!!! Rebecca
Please refer to the photographs I have uploaded, or to the parts diagram, page 16 and 17 of your user manual.
The stove is very simple in design, but everything has to be right, for it to start up and continue running. Deep in the guts of the stove, after you remove the side panels, is an adjustment for the intake air damper (#28). This must be adjusted properly, for the stove to start up and to continue running. When I received mine, the damper was wide open. This caused me no end of problems until I figured it out. Start with the damper half closed, or half open, and adjust it so that you get a smooth start up, and a relatively smoke free flame. See my uploaded photograph for a proper flame size. The manufacturer photo shows a flame that is too large, in my experience.
If the stove does not start smoothly, the combustion chamber pressure switch (#40) can be damaged. It can be taken apart and repaired, if you are mechanically inclined. A replacement switch will cost about $40. This is the most likely cause for failure to feed pellets. Another possible cause is maladjustment of the hopper door microswitch (#14). If the stove does not light, which can be caused by an improper intake air adjustment, then the burnpot can overflow, causing jamming of the pellet feed. This is readily seen from the front door. You will see overflowing pellets. The feed may be jammed all the way up to the auger. Then you will have to remove the jammed pellets with a piece of wire. There is an indicator light on the control panel, that tells you that there is power to the feed motor. If you want to see whether it is actually turning, you can look through the vent holes in the back of the unit. You can hear the feed motor, too, if it is working.
This stove has a high limit sensor (#43, 198° F) and a low limit sensor (#35, 125° F) to make sure that the flame is burning properly. If it is not, the stove simply shuts off, and the yellow error light goes on. In my experience, with the type of pellets I am using, and at my altitude, only the low heat setting works--but that produces plenty of heat! If the stove gets too hot, it will beep several times, before it shuts off. If it is not burning hot enough, it will do the same. If it is real cold where the stove is, it may fail to start, the first time. Simply press the button, to restart it, in that case. If it has been running for some time, and shuts off, it may be too hot. Let it cool down, and then restart it. If the stove shuts off a lot, then try cleaning the burnpot, adjusting the intake damper, or replacing the high limit sensor. It is possible that the medium or high heat setting does not work, with your pellets, altitude or exhaust pipe installation.
This stove requires regular maintenance. I recommend cleaning the combustion chamber, or at least the burnpot, every time you start it up. The best way to do this is with a shop vacuum, a big one. Every heating season, or more often, clean the exhaust pipe and the exhaust blower. Take them apart to do this. Exhaust blower gaskets are not sold as a separate part, but you can make them out of high temperature silicone sealer. Like I said, and after all the trouble I have had, I really wouldn't recommend this stove to anybody. If you are mechanically inclined, and want to save some money, it might be a good choice. I certainly wouldn't recommend it, for an installation, where it is the only source of heat. There is just too much that can go wrong.
January 5, 2013: Well I have finally had enough of this piece of junk. Last night the high limit sensor failed for the umpteenth time, and I replaced it with a new one I had as a spare. This worked for about five minutes, and the controller board fried. I guess it's fried; all it does is beep, flash the indicator lights randomly, and the combustion blower doesn't come on. It's off to the recycling station for this piece of junk.
This is the fourth pellet stove I have installed-other brands-no problems. Be warned.
