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.

SOURCE: quadra fire pellet stove will

min firepot - do a neg 3 to neg 5 flame/height try running on auto
try mixing with a small amt of wheat - set to utility setting (regardless of premium brands)
pull thermocouple off and put back on - might need a new one but the upgraded firepot that comes with a new element might be all that's needed as an upgrade
Reasons to upgrade: The upgrade to the bottom of the pot to the element is much bigger. There is also a large opening at the bottom of the element mount to aide in air flow upward to the pellets
Upgrading the firepot that comes with a new element - be careful of the TC Sensor cable - use plenty PB Blaster (wd-40? White lightning?) - slowly rock bolts back and forth - don't break the bolts!
Remove old cover around TC sensor and replace with a new TC Sensor ceramic cover from Preston Trading Post - might help
If the thermocouple is heated and produces millivolts, it's good. If it has continuity it is good. - make sure conections are pushed inside well enough on the pins.
You can test the board. Unplug stove. Then pull the firepot T-couple connector off the board, making sure which direction it sat. Then install a jumper wire on the exposed pins. Make sure it is clips with plastic covers that won't ground out. After installing the jumper wire, plug the stove in and check the wall control. If the error code for the firepot t-couple goes away, the control board is good. If the code pops up again, the board is bad.
jump the thermocouple connector pins on the control board, plug the stove back in -should be no error codes - tweaking the pins on the control board for a better connection - sometimes works

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.

Wood burning or pellet stoves create acid vapor. The vapor damages thermocouples faster than a gas stove.

I have a quadra-fire 1100-i and I can not get power to the ignitor


Be careful how you read the voltage on the ignitor, as it has a low resistance and may not show a voltage across it. As is the case with most parts, you can use a line cord to hot wire the device to test it. Remember, the stove has a 10 minute exhaust fan timer when its first plugged in, so the ignitor will not light until this has timed out.

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.

My Quadra fire 1000 Pellet stove is not igniting correctly, the fire box fills with lots of smoke, the when it finally does the flame is erratic, extremely high and is giving off alot of black, and does...


Hi lovinthepine:
1st. clean the unit, inside and out! Clean fire bowl/pot, it'll have small'ish holes for air and a larger one for the igniter. Clean out all holes in fire pot! Make sure fiberglass gasket material between firepot and firebox floor is in tacked and not leaking. make sure ash pan door is closed tight. Clean finned heat-ex's, this requires pulling out the two heat exchanger cover plates inside the firebox., next pull the right side panel and remove neg pressure blower & clean. These can get cloged up with ash and half burnt pellets. Tall flames & black smoke mean the unit is out of adjustment. Try closing up the pellet feed plate some, it's located in the pellet hopper area. Adjust opening smaller and wait 15 min, takes that long for change. If that doesn't get it, try opening the positive pressure blower's restrictor plate some. Remove left cover panel & find semi funneled blower cover plate, loosen screw and slide plate sideways +/- 0.25". If that doesn't do it, make sure all blowers are coming on, check for exhaust blockage in stove output/Flue sys. I hope that help ya, good luck!
