Question about Dayton Air Conditioners

2 Answers

I have purchased a freestanding pellet (biomass) stove and am looking for an installer. However, I also need to convince the Dayton building inspector that it needs to be installed in accordance with ASTM E1509 and UL 1482 and follow NFPA 211 for chimneys, fireplaces, vents and solid burning appliances. He is insisting it is a factory built fireplace and must meet UL 127, and also insists that the exhaust be 10 feet from my property line, as it will belch smoke. I know different. Can anyone help me with these issues?

Have a pellet stove that has been working perfect for years, then last night it shut itself off and when I opened door there was this black tar on everything inside and the windows were also black. I had...


Several of things come to mind: Have you changed the type (Brand) of pellets, recently?
Have you had your chimney (stack) cleaned in the past year? Is the fresh air intake functioning properly? Is the auger feeding to much or to little pellets?

Changing brand of pellets - Not all wood pellets are made the same. If you recently changed brands, you will need to tweak your stove to handle this new brand. This will affect how the auger feeds.

If you chimney (stack) hasn't been cleaned in the past 12 months, it may be partially clogged with creosote and not drawing properly and it is liquefying and running back down the chimney and not allowing for a clean burn. And could cause a chimney fire.

Fresh air intake: If that's not functioning properly, you're getting incomplete combustion. Which will cause the black tar looking substance you described. Couple that with changing brands of pellets and you have a problem.

The above are the first things that came to mind. I hope it steers you in the right direction to troubleshoot the problem. Please let me know.

We have an Envirofire pellet stove. The auger won't shut off and we can't control the the speed. We had to unplug it. Any thoughts?


You didn't mention which model Envirofire Pellet Stove you have, but generally they all have a heat overload switch, which stops the auger from feeding pellets if the stove gets to hot. They may be faulty. Or The Auger Timing Control Module may have failed. Depending on the age of the stove the gasket material around the door may need replacing. If it's not a tight fit, it's sucking air into the stove and causing it to run more than it should. Normally, I would say, "If all else fails, contact their Technical Service Dept." But, apparently they don't want the consumer contacting them, as there is no contact info on their website. Nor, is there any contact info on the manufacturer's website, Sherwood Industries. "Any technical service questions should be directed to your local dealer."

Hope this helped to get you headed in the right direction in solving the problem.

I purchases an elcipse pellet stove in 1990. It still works perfectly. I need to replace the insulation blocks for the side walls and also need a new ash pan. Do you know where i can purchase these items.


Elcipse was manufactured by Warnock Hersey, but was sold to St Croix. So, their parts may be interchangeable with your stove. Try Pellet Stove Parts.com and click on other brands for St Croix.

I just installed a Dayton Blower model 2C647A on our pellet stove. The manual states that this motoer should be relubricated every six months with 10W, 20W or electric motor oil. I find no place on the...


Hello
This is an error in the manual.Or the wrong manual in the motor box.Almost all small motors today have sealed bearings which are lubricated at the factory.

A sealed bearing motor requires no maint from you and will probably last 5 to 10 yrs maybe longer.

I would just check it for dirt or dust and keep it clean as much as possible to ensure a long life.

Pellet stove makes a popping, clicking sound


First, have you recently changed the brand of pellets from what you have normally used in the past?
Not all pellet manufacturers make their pellets the same way and you may have to re-tweak your stove to match the current brand you're using.

Are there clinkers in floor of the stove's firebox? If so, they will need to be removed.

Does the popping and clicking sound like metal stress when the stove heats up? This could cause a crack in the firebox.

Also, check your vent piping to make sure there are no obstructions in it. This could cause incomplete combustion of the pellets (clinkers) and over heating.

And finally, check the door gasket material. If its worn, it won't seal properly, it will allow air in and Carbon Monoxide out. Replace the door gasket

Hope this helps you solve the problem.

Sometimes when the unit is turned on it do not ignite. i have to turn it off and remove pellets because the pot is full sometimes when the unit is operating it shuts down and i get aE-2code


This looks like you are talking about a Pellet stove?
Somehow it was listed under Air Conditioner!

It sounds like the Pellet feed control motor is turning when it should NOT be-
Could the control board need replacing-

Just a thought-

How do we install a burner on a fireplace?


Thinking of adding a fireplace or wood stove to your home? If so, proper installation and maintenance is absolutely critical to ensuring the fire stays inside your freestanding fireplace or wood stove and doesn't venture outside of it.

If your manufactured home already has a fireplace or wood stove, it's a good idea to go look over these safety guidelines to confirm that it was installed correctly. If you plan to install a fireplace or wood stove, follow these safety guidelines carefully.

First, don't try to tackle this project yourself. While installation manuals usually provide all the instructions necessary for a manufactured home owner to install a wood-burning fireplace or wood stove, the consequences of a mistake are so disastrous, it's a task best left to experts.

It's a good idea to first check with your insurance company for their guidelines before installing these items. Your insurance policy may not cover damages if a fireplace or wood stove was not professionally installed. Plus, the manufacturer's warranty on the fireplace or wood stove may not apply unless the unit is installed by a professional.
