Over feeding of pellets

The problem we are having is over feeding. We have overhauled the stove, cleaned over and over. No matter what we do, when we turn the stove on it lights fine after at least two times then starts to over feed pellets.

    We have a St. Croix stove. This is our second year of having it. Not many problems the first year. This year we are having problems with over feeding of the burn pot. It will burn well for half the night, then during the night overload. Or a few hours with no problem, then overload on and off. My husband cleans it every day. Has torn it apart to clean, has spoken with stove cleaners that have offered suggestions, played with the damper, etc. He thinks he has it fixed, then it will start to overload (this occurs on all settings). It is extremely frustrating.

SOURCE: 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

We have a heilsa pellet stove model#QCPS-28000 ,its dropping pellets to fast ,how do I adjust the feed.


  1. SET THE AIR INLET DAMPERS
It is not possible for the manufacture to factory set your stove to work properly without some adjustments. The dampers help control the amount of airflow supplied for combustion.
A damper PUSHED IN all the way, maximizes concentrated air flow to the burn pot. This will maintain a robust fire.
The Auger timing is designed to be run, in most conditions, with the dampers closed.
In some areas/conditions, it mybe necessary to adjust the damper open slighty in order to slow down the flame and allow the pellets to keep pace with the rate of burn. This should be monitored closely to ensure you have the propoer feed rate established. If dampers are opened too much, the rate of burn will be very slow and the pellets will build up.
This setting needs to be fine tuned to according to your location and elevation. It is recommended that you start with the dampers pushed in to start.

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.

That is an old pellet stove. One problem may be that you have recently switched the type (Manufacturer) of pellets. Not all manufacturers make the pellets the same way. So you would have to re-tweek the auger feed an the air intake to the stove. If you no longer have your Owners Manual try searching Google for the Manufacturer and contact them for advice. But, I suspect that the model you have is no longer manufactured, as it does not meet the current EPA standards for emissions.

Our napoleon stove barely heats the room it is in and it is new first year used,,


Try this....before starting the stove, place a handful of pellets into the burn pot. Start stove with feed rate about 2-3. Let the pellets ignite fully, then turn pellet rate to about 5, less then max. Let a good flame develop for 5 minutes or so, then turn on the fan. I set the fan at about 3-4 as advised by the tech. Reduce feed rate to about 4. I keep my damper on 2 1/2 to 3 to supply air intake. Napoleon is not the greatest stove, and I'm having an issue with mine after 3 years, but hopefully this helps. It will never give the heat of a wood stove, but get a strong fire going first, then tune it down after the room gets warm.

Plugged feeder on pellet stove


if u can get at it you can clean it, if you get at a little of it you may be able to hit it with a small brush or paper clip or finish nail or whatever while it is revolving. I spraye my old stoves auger with PB blaster then cleaned it and of course let it air out for 2 days as that is flamable. The cause is probably inferior non-hardwood pellets. Been there....and doing that .. good luck
