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!

SOURCE: Pelpro pellet stove will not start. Press the start

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.

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.

Just replaced motor on pellet stove


What was the original problem and what motor was replaced? Draft? Auger? Or blower? Did you disconnect power while working on it?

The first thing to check is that it has power and that the thermostat is turned on/up.

Without knowing the brand/model# it is tough to give assistance but what I normally find on pellet stoves is a faulty control board. It may also have a fuse that is popped.

Why does my quadra fire 1000 not lite..i checked blower moter ignighter could it be thermocouple?


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

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!
