I have a Quadrafire 1200 Classic Bay pellet stove insert.

Customer Question

I have a Quadrafire 1200 Classic Bay pellet stove insert. Last year we haveing to hit the reset button multiple times to feed pellets. After cleaning, there was no pellet feed. We used canned air on the vacuum switch hose. No results. Then we ran a jumper wire between the vacuum switch and the wire accidently touched metal and blew the fuse. Replaced the 7 amp fuse. Now when we plugged in the unit the exhaust blower came on and the auger filled the fire pot without the thermostat turned on. When we opened the door to clean out the fire pot the auger stopped feeding. Turned up thermostat, fire started. Pellets would not stop feeding. Turned thermostat down, call light off , continued to feed pellets. Finally shut off when pellets ran out. Now when I turn the thermostat up the auger motor does not turn on unless I jiggle it and then it will not shut off even when the thermostat is turned down.
JA: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?
Customer: Do you mean the call light? We just gave the stove a good cleaning. What filters do you mean?
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Not that I can think of.
