Question about Pool & Spa

1 Answer

I have a 1991 J1000 Jamestown pellet heater. I have read the start up manuel but it keeps dropping the pellets and they just keep piling up n running over the sides. Then I have flame all over the box

After reading the start up manual and following the directions everything works fine for about the first 1/2 hr. then the pellet box fills to overflowing n the burning pellets fall all around the small box and into cleanout area and everything is burning. It is like once the box fills n they burn the more that drop have no place to go but around it.

    Open the air to max-the slide on the right side and see if this makes any difference, I find that if I keep the air low that the combustion can't keep up with the fuel. Just a thought.

SOURCE: stove trips breaker

Begin by unplugging the pellet stove and using an extension cord, plug the pellet stove into a different circuit, with a different breaker. It is possible that the breaker itself is faulty. If you prove that the problem is in the breaker, replace it. If the new circuit also trips, then you will have to assume that the stove cord, or the stove mechanism is faulty and either repair or replace it. good luck with it. let me know.

SOURCE: purchased a used earth stove mp240 pellet stove

The auger motor is fed through a high temp. limit thermostat. It has a manual reset on the back of it that you have to press on firmly to reset it. Open the side panel on the stove and find the wiring. You will see the thermostat on the back side of the combustion chamber. Look very closely and reset it.
good luck!

SOURCE: combustion fan isn't running

Ther is a guy names Murphy that it resposible for that. Go back through the steps you used to change the auger motor and see if maybe there was a wire left out or if the combustion motor is also out. What caused the outage? If a voltage spike, it could have taken them both out. The only other thing I can think of is a main switch somewhere. Good luck...Lee

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.

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.

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.
