Question about Heating & Cooling

Is it possible for the loop igniter for the QF1000 pellet stove to give out. It seems sturdy, but mine seems to have quite working. I checked the wire connections and they SEEM okay, so I'm wondering if it's the igniter itself.

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.

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.

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.

Trying to hook up a RTH2310B thermostat to a wood pellet stove with only two wires.. How do I know where to connect them too?


Hey Brad432, this is what i did with the same RTH2310B thermostat and my harmon stove. You must have the heat sensor that plugs in the back of the stove to start with. Take your new wire from the stove to your thermostat, red to rh, white to one side of your sensor then other side of sensor to W on your thermostat. On your stove side set your room temp as high as it will go and let your programmable thermostat set the room temp. Works good for mine. 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.
