Pellet stoves heat spaces by burning small pellets of super-compacted sawdust and wood particles. PelPro pellet stoves use an auger system to automatically feed wood pellets into the fire at the rate necessary to maintain desired heat levels, freeing up owners from worrying about constantly feeding the flames. Troubleshooting an auger that fails to feed requires users to verify proper air flow settings and clear jammed pellets from the auger.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Locate the "FAN" pod on the bottom of the control panel and verify that it is turned one quarter of the way to the left if the auger fails to feed after the initial start-up feed.

  2. 2

    Verify that the fresh air intake damper is open 50 per cent if the auger fails to feed pellets after the initial start-up feed.

  3. 3

    Increase the combustion fan speed using the "FAN" pod if the auger fails to turn during an auger cycle.

  4. 4

    Turn off the stove and open the front door to access the jammed pellets if the auger fails to turn during an auger cycle. Insert the metal end of a long screwdriver into the lower end of the drop chute on the auger. Move the screwdriver around to loosen jammed pellets until they drop into the stove.
