SOURCE: SCC 658 Runs way too hot

I bought mine about two years ago. Had the same experience as you did ... it is not working right for a slow cooker. After my first disaster with it, tried making something again and insuring it was filled all the way. Burned all the food again. Now it just takes space in my cabinet. I bought another slow cooker that just the basic 3 position knob, no electronics.

SOURCE: Honda EU30001 generator causes erratic pellet stove operation.

Ok Motors and the like generally DO NOT really go all that well from a generator, what load does the Stove use?, You must add up the cumlitive "Wattages" of ALL things connected, see your generator is about 3000 Watts, 3KW, How much "headroom" is there between the two? Whats supplied versus whats being used? Purely inductive loads, like Motors etc, are less responsive than electronic loads. I suspect that your generator is NOT providing enough current to the Stove, especially when "Other" things are connected. also. Look, if the, any, generator is 3000 Watts really you should only load it up to a couple of KW's, 2.5KW being about maximum. To do what you are doing would require, IMHO, at least, 5KW, to get the "Headroom" of current drawn over current able to be delivered by the generator. Also inductive loads loose heaps of power and actually cause a higher draw. So that your answer, you must use it well, inside it's rating, not right up to the limit.

SOURCE: the auger is not turning

Have you recently changed the brand of pellets form what you have used in the past? If so, please understand that no two wood pellet manufacturers make their pellets the same way. If this is the case, you will have to retweak your stove to that brand of pellets you're now using. Also, check the auger to make sure it's not jammed and that auger shaft is properly fitted into the auger drive motor coupling..

Hope this helps solve your problem.

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.

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.

Quadra Fire Pellet stove-will not ignite

I own a Quadrafire pellet stove. I have had this thing for 10 yrs. It seems every year at the start of the season I have some kind of problem. I clean it at the end of the season completely. First couple of burns are fine then get a good cold day and it doesn't work. All the gaskets, the exhaust blower, ignitor, glass front, and exhaust piping have had to be replaced. Now I have a blinking red light in the control box and cannot find anything on line to help. Does anyone know why this red light blinks 3 times every 10 seconds inside the control box? It's not the call for heat light. Think I may change to a wood burning stove to many headaches.

The auger is not turning to fill the burn pot with pellets. Can hear the motor run but it will not turn it.

If this is the case, you will have to retweak your stove to that brand of pellets you're now using.

Ash build up in burn pot

You are burning wood pellets. When you burn wood you produce ash. Some of the ash is extremely hard and hard to remove. What I do is remove the burn pot, take it into my shop and with a screwdriver and hammer, LIGHTLY tap on the hardened ash until the pot is clean. Should only take a few minutes. At the same time you can clean the glass. Even though it may burn very clean, nothing burns wood fuel without by-products...Good luck...Lee

Pelpro pellet stove will not start. Press the start button, igniter button lights up but nothing happens.

Is the auger light coming on to and dropping pellets into the burn pot? If the auger light is not coming on, you probably have an issue with the board controlling it. If the auger light is coming on, and pellets are dropping into the burn pot and it is still not lighting, then you have only a few other possible problems.
1. The air damper is not allowing enough air in, so pull the damper rod out 1/8" increments until it lights.
2. Your ignitor is faulty and not producing enough heat to light the stove. You can either contact a local dealer and get a replacement ignitor, or you can manually light the stove with a special firestarting gel made for pellete stoves. When you press the start button look into the burn pot. If the ignitor isn't bright orange, you aren't getting enough heat from it.

Hope this helps...good luck.

After installing the pellet stove,the stove seems to 'burn up" the pellets to fast not creating a "coal bed ',no real heat is going in the house.It is a breckwell big E mod. 55'000 btu...

Not sure what is happening but if the pellets are burning too fast that tells me you have to set the air flow while they are burning. Even a wood stove will burn to fast if there is too much air . There should be a setting for the air flow on all stoves and some times it should be almost closed. if it continues i would contact the stove seller and ask them.
