St. Croix Pellet Stove stops working

I have a St Croix insert (York) that works fine for the first few minutes, but then it seems as though the auger stops feeding the burn pot. If I push the button on the side to manually feed, the auger turns and feeds pellets to the burn pot. Once I stop manually feeding, then it ceases to continue feeding, and the fire will eventually go out. I've emptied the hopper, and completely cleaned the stove and hopper.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Gary

    We have the same issue. The York was just installed today. The installer started the stove, left, and the stove stopped about an hour afterward. We keep starting it up again, but once the pellets we've added to the burn pot die out, the stove stops.



    We keep hearing clicking as if the auger is trying to go on, but no go.

    Hi, I have the same insert and the same exact problem. I notice the auger light will go on but the auger does not run. However, some of the time the auger will kick in. However, more often than not the auger does not run and my pellet stove fames out.

    Is it in thermostat mode or manual? Also, does the on/off light blink when this is happening?

Hi, Check to see if vents are free of debree (spider webs etc...) Clean fan if necessary. Also try a different pellet some pellets will burn hotter. Good Luck.

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.

St croix pellet stove


Had the same problem which I discovered this weekend..........

I have an eleven year old Afton Bay....the versa grate was not moving. I look into the inner workings of the stove and saw a bracket which had broken off....

The bracket was attached to the versa grate rod and made contact with the cam system in the stove...this is what moves the versa grate...........

I called my dealer, the part costs about $12.00 and looks like it can be replaced with out having a service guy come out..........

Hope this helps

Pellet stove


The buzzing is possibly your exhaust/combustion blower. This blower is the fan sound you hear as the stove starts up. If you ARE hearing a NORMAL fan sound, then the buzzing could be the auger motor. Do you have a Foxfire with an igniter? This tells me the series of model you have and what control system it uses.
