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.

    Mine did too, I called service in and it was the ignitor switch. They wanted 500 bucks to fix it so I went to Mountain Veiw website and ordered the switch my self, it comes with the ignitor and the switch - cost $72 - it took litterly 1/2 hour to replace and I'm a 56 year old woman with no machanical experience. Just opened up back of stove and right side and pulled out 1 part at a time and replaced it - 3 screws total. Runs better than new

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.

I have a Quadra fire 1200 pellet stove insert. The convection blower does not stay on continuously. 2 min on 2 min off


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.

Please respond with the 'comment' button, down below the ads. I'm considering a pellet stove and I'd like to hear anything you have to say about yours.

I have an Afton bay pellet stove .Its about 2 years old but never been used. every time I try to start it, it trips the breaker


Possibly the fan motor is seized. Have you had a look at it? if you do, unplug the unit and turn the squirrel cage on that fan by hand. If it does not turn than it has seized. You might be able to squirt some dry lube(silicon) into motor shaft bearings to unsieze it. Otherwise the Mfr can sell you a fan.

Purchased a used Earth stove mp240 pellet stove and the auger does not move. we are looking for a manual or information on this stove it is an older stove we just don't know how old. Thank You


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!
