Hi,
If this was mine... I would be using an electrical meter and then following the wireing backwards from the motor to see where the electric is stopping at...
It is unlikely that the thermostat has any kind of reset, but it is very likely that it is bad...

There also is a good possibility that the door feed switch is bad... if you have power to one side of it and not the other when it is in the closed position then it is bad...

Hi,
Check for power to the auger motor... power but no run equals bad motor and/or jammed auger... no power means bad board or high limit cutout needs reset...

You will need to do some checking and try ti figure out what is going on....
From the mention of the squeaking I would say that maybe a bearing went out on the auger and siezed up which may have also burnt out the motor...

Sounds lie an Ignition Box problem. Quadra Fire recently redesigned their Ignition Boxes, so your may wan to replace yours. In addition, contact Quadra Fire Technical Service and speak to Steve Tate. He's a real guru when it comes to this problem. Don't settle for anyone else.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

SOURCE: We have an Envirofire pellet

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.

If you've checked the auger for jams and there was nothing there, check the receptacle the auger is plugged into to make sure it's working and a circuit breaker in your home's circuit breaker hasn't been tripped. If it has been tripped, reset it to see what happens. If it trips again, check the electrical outlet for wear or a loose wire. If everything checks out alright, you will need to replace the auger motor or the circuitry that operates it automatically.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem.

How do i fix ager on my pellet stove?


Hello Ethan, First I would uncouple and remove the auger motor from the auger shaft. Next turn the stove on to see if the auger motor turns. If it does turn, try to hold the motor shaft with your hand to determine if the motor has sufficient torque to turn the auger. If motor seems to be strong enough , use a pair of pliers or a vise grips and try to rotate the auger shaft. If the auger will not turn, it might be clogged up with pellets or pellet dust. The clog will have to be removed. If that is the case, I think the gears in the motor are stripped and a new motor is in order. Note: Damp pellets swell up and turn hard as concrete when they dry out.

Auger not working on Blaze King Pellet Stove


depending on how the manufacturer set up the system, there may be pellets wedging the auger. most augers are geared low enough to snap the pellet but if its something else blocking it (stick or rock etc) it may have blown a fuse for the auger drive or the drive mechanism itself. if you are going to work on the auger. UNPLUG THE STOVE AND USE TOOLS TO CLEAR BLOCKAGE as there may still be some pressure to spin auger

We have a pellet stove -seems to be working ok except that we have a smell of smoke like that of having a fireplace. We think everything is sealed correctly. Any suggestions?


From what I have read on these things, never had one, but they have 2 fans, maybe one, plus an auger and thermostat. The one fan would **** fresh air in from the room to fuel the fire, while the other fan would blow the heat back out from a sealed area. The auger spins constantly, slow, dropping pellets on the fire determined by the thermostat. If this is right and relates to your stove, I can see where the smell of smoke would come from. The second fan is pulling in smoke from the fire. Check the gaskets in that area. I was wondering if it wasn't just the new stove smell you were getting?

Combustion fan isn't running


Ther is a guy names Murphy that it resposible for that. Go back through the steps you used to change the auger motor and see if maybe there was a wire left out or if the combustion motor is also out. What caused the outage? If a voltage spike, it could have taken them both out. The only other thing I can think of is a main switch somewhere. Good luck...Lee

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!
