Heat exchanger tube on quadra fire 1200 i

I have a quadra fire 1200 i pellet insert and one of the heat exchanger tubes has slid down, and out of position.

Is this something a home owner can repair? Access to the tube seems difficult and it is not obvious how the tube stays in place.

Can any one assist? Thanks!

It may be working properly. If it seems that it's a little cool in the room and the blower is cycling like you say then the stove may be getting chilled. If this is the case then the low-temp switch is cutting the blower off.

If the room is quite hot there may be a problem with the blower. Check to see if it has a bunch of dust in it making it run hot and tripping the internal thermostat.

Alternative Heating Pellet Stoves and Pellet Inserts


Pellet stoves usually use wood pellets as their primary heat source. A pellet stove is defined as a stove that burns either compressed wood or biomass pellets to make heat to warm a home or other space.

Pellet stoves come as either free-standing units or fireplace pellet inserts which can be vented into an existing chimney. As an insert, you are able to replace your wood burning stove with this efficient and cost effect stove. Inserts also give the homeowner more of the look of a fireplace than that of a pellet stove. Pellet inserts can also be a great alternative for people who have busy lifestyles and are looking to get the beauty of a fire but prefer a cleaner burning renewable heat source.

Pellet stoves are freestanding structures that can give you the feeling that an old pot bellied stove did, tucked into a corner of a living room, den, or kitchen. Either the pellet inserts or freestanding stoves are a great alternative heating solution for keeping a house warm during the winter.

Many stove manufacturers recommend the using a corn and pellet mixture, but some are UL listed for many fuels other than pellets. These can include wheat, corn, sunflower seeds, and cherry pits.

Pellet stoves are a bit more efficient, burn cleaner, and are easier to use than conventional wood burning stoves. Pellet stoves often look very similar to wood stoves or fireplace inserts, however the similarities end there.

If you are considering burning alternative fuels then you will want to look into a pellet stove as a great way to heat your home. Pellet stoves and pellet insets have many great advantages over regular wood stoves that make them a practical heat for busy lifestyles.

It heats up but no steam


i just fixed mine tonight. it was heating but not releasing steam. i took apart the mop, not the head and found that the tube connecting to the heating element popped off....the spring inside the tube was also haning out. i found the metal clamp that was holding it randomly in there as well. i pushed the spring back in the tube and then pushed the clamped back onto the tubing, then pushed the tubing back onto the heating element then slid the clamp down over the tubing and the heating element and now my shark works great again!!

There is debri on top of the heat exchanger or the finned tubes on the heat exchanger itself are calcifying or corroding. Remove all leaves,rusty metal, and debri off the top of the heat exchanger and finned tubes, Air has to be able to flow through these tubes freely, any corrision has to be wire brushed off the tubes. then vacuum top of exchanger. reinstall heater top.

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.

My Quadra fire 1000 Pellet stove is not igniting correctly, the fire box fills with lots of smoke, the when it finally does the flame is erratic, extremely high and is giving off alot of black, and does...


Hi lovinthepine:
1st. clean the unit, inside and out! Clean fire bowl/pot, it'll have small'ish holes for air and a larger one for the igniter. Clean out all holes in fire pot! Make sure fiberglass gasket material between firepot and firebox floor is in tacked and not leaking. make sure ash pan door is closed tight. Clean finned heat-ex's, this requires pulling out the two heat exchanger cover plates inside the firebox., next pull the right side panel and remove neg pressure blower & clean. These can get cloged up with ash and half burnt pellets. Tall flames & black smoke mean the unit is out of adjustment. Try closing up the pellet feed plate some, it's located in the pellet hopper area. Adjust opening smaller and wait 15 min, takes that long for change. If that doesn't get it, try opening the positive pressure blower's restrictor plate some. Remove left cover panel & find semi funneled blower cover plate, loosen screw and slide plate sideways +/- 0.25". If that doesn't do it, make sure all blowers are coming on, check for exhaust blockage in stove output/Flue sys. I hope that help ya, good luck!

Refrigerator drain tube clogged, I cleared it, it keeps clogging-SZ 550 14 yr old


hi there,

the tube that you are talking about is the water line and it runs all the way to the icemaker. not sure about the copper line and it's also not a good idea, as cooper conducts electricity and you may damage your heat exchanger or even worse your compressor. i would have a technician come and take a look at this one. the mfg. should have a water line freeze kit available to remedy this problem.
