I have a question about the 050 Thermostat, and that is I have the heat level on 4 and switched the slector switch to thermostat. I turned down the thermostat so the stove would go into pilot mode. The 2 light (which is the on/off button) is blicking on and off. The feed light come on when is drops pellets in, so it looks like everything is good there? When it calls for heat will the stove start off feeding pellets at the 4 rate or will it work up to the 4 rate. What do you guys have yours on and what do you think is the Best way to set it??
Thanks for any info!!
Yes, sounds like things are working OK. The blinking light indicates that the thermostate is not calling for heat. When it does, I believe the stove will ramp up to the level you have it set at (4 in your example) vs. abruptly changing the feed rate. I can't find documentation of that right now, but I know it's not an issue in my installation. -- Dave
Yes I will agree with woodand metal guy. When it gets cool enough to call for heat you will I will hear a click from the control board as a relay closes and the light will stop flashing. It then start at the number 1 feed rate and progresses up to 2, then 3, and 4 unless it gets warm enough for the thermostat to signal warm enough and it will go back to 1 and pilot. If it would start on the number 4 feed rate it would flood the burn pot with corn and go out. You can tell the feed level by timing the auger "on time" (auger light) with a stop watch. It is on 1.5 seconds on number 1 with no trim adjust. 2 seconds on number 2, 2.5 seconds on number 3, 3 seconds on number 4, and 3.5 seconds on number 5.
I have my thermostat on a wall to the side of my stove about 10-12 feet. With the furnace you would probably want it away from heat delivery so that it would not cycle the thermostat on and off too rapidly that it never gets to a high burn rate. (IMO. I live in cold climate area)
