Wood Heat Stoves youtube Quadra-Fire 1100-I pellet stove insert operation and maintenance manual video

        1:00 - Automatic ignition
        1:45 - stove gets a call from the thermostat
               timers run stove until it reaches a certain temperature
               stays running by temperature and thermostat demand
               returns to times for shutdown
               red call light shows demand for heat.
        2:15 - exhaust blower comes on creating a partial vacuum in the burn-pot
               the feed motor starts and feeds a few pellets
               the ignitor comes on
               a low flame sends reading of 200deg. to the control box
               if this happens within 2 minutes the ignitor will turn off
               and the feed motor will continue to turn
               if 200deg. is not reached the feed motor will stop
               but the igniter will stay on for four more minutes
               green light comes on at 200deg. red light at 1000deg.
        3:40 - the shutdown sequence is also timed.
               thermostat call goes off, red light goes off, shutdown sequence started
               the feed motor stops
               exhaust blower runs for 8 minutes, exhausting the remaining fuel in the fire-pot
               the exhaust fan shuts off until the thermostat calls for heat.
        4:10 - convection blowers move air over the heat exchanger.
               turn on at 125deg. turn off at 105deg.
        4:40 - also 3 safety systems.
               vacuum switch turns of feed motor if door is open or exhaust is clogged

                make sure thremostat is below room temperature
                put handful of pellets in fire pot
                close and latch door, set thermostat above room temerature
                let run for 15 min. to reach operating temperature
                2 things necesary.
                  thermocouple must read 1000deg.
                  thermostat must be calling for more heat
        27:35 - properly adjusted fire
                adjust feed adjustment plate
                check fire-pot gasket and heat exchanger clean-out door gasket
                adjust air adjustment plate
        28:54 - shows properly adjust flame - short and active
        29:03 - fire is too small
                open feed adjustment plate.
                if needed close the air adjustment
        29:43 - if glass is getting black, fire is probably too high
        30:21 - hard wood has high minerals, will generate clinkers
        31:04 - buy pellets in muti-ton lots when possible
        31:20 - troubleshooting
                what shut the stove off?
                assume the thermostat is calling for heat ahd the red call light is on.
        31:44 - look in the fire-pot to see
        31:50 - unburned pellets, stove has simply missed an ignition
        33:25 - thermocouple problems
        35:50 - door gasket inspection
        36:30 - fire pot gasket inspection
        36:45 - fire-pot wear - check for holes
        37:26 - clean the firepot
        38:29 - no cleaning of the igniter is necessary
        38:49 - small convection blower checked and cleaned every 6 months
        39:05 - large convection blower cleaned once a year
        39:20 - clean the exhaust stack
        39:50 - parts replacement
                the call light is a 28 volt AC bulb number 85 lamp if replacement is necessary remove
                24V AC thermostat. .05 amp heat anticipator
        41:15 - snap disk #1. marked F125-20
        42:00 - snap disk #2. makred L250-40
                opens at 250deg. resets when it cools down
                test by shorting
        42:35 - snap disk #3. marked L200-M
                rarely needs replacing. all power goes through it
        43:25 - convection blower #1 42cfm
        44:30 - convection blower #2 86cfm
