Pellet stove issue - lopi foxfire 400 pi will need feed pellets. When auger is hot wired direct it works great. wired together the two wires on the flow switch and did not help. tried wiring together the wires on the snap disk still nothing. only time the auger works is when hot wired ... hose on the flow switch seems fine thought i'm not sure that it is doing anything. no cracks or blocks or whatever. Turn on power and buzz from the control box - clicking every 4 seconds that sounds like auger but nothing ... fan never kicks on until it reaches a certain temp so no clue about that. Can i run it with the auger hot wired ?? Any thoughts ?

No flame. The auger works fine and the pellets are feeding in. There is no fire to burn them.


Do you have a user's manual? Most pellet stoves need to be lit before starting the auger to sustain the fire.

New augar motor wont run even in manuel


Try putting power directly to the auger. If it works then you need to see why you have no voltage on the auger motor terminal. Could be a problem with air flow vacuum switch, or loose/wrong wiring.

Pinnacle Pellet stove augre gets stuck


hmm, could be low power to the motor, heavier power cord, or it's possible the auger needs new bushing/bearings, wiggle the auger to see if it has any play in it OR it's fussy about the size of pellets it made to feed. please send pictures and or results.

We have an Envirofire pellet stove. The auger won't shut off and we can't control the the speed. We had to unplug it. Any thoughts?


You didn't mention which model Envirofire Pellet Stove you have, but generally they all have a heat overload switch, which stops the auger from feeding pellets if the stove gets to hot. They may be faulty. Or The Auger Timing Control Module may have failed. Depending on the age of the stove the gasket material around the door may need replacing. If it's not a tight fit, it's sucking air into the stove and causing it to run more than it should. Normally, I would say, "If all else fails, contact their Technical Service Dept." But, apparently they don't want the consumer contacting them, as there is no contact info on their website. Nor, is there any contact info on the manufacturer's website, Sherwood Industries. "Any technical service questions should be directed to your local dealer."

Hope this helped to get you headed in the right direction in solving the problem.

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!

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.
