Hi woodburners and pellet burners !! , I am new to the forum . I am sure if I look through all the past threads I could get the answers I need . That being said I am hoping for some quick answers as it is getting cold where I am and I am not really prepared for it . I just moved recently to a northern climate and the pellet stove came with it . I have burned a lot of wood in my day but pellets never . My panel has the abc, on/off, heat range and blower speed buttons . I know there are some tsech. adjustments with the abc buttons and I am staying off those right now if I don't need to mess with them. I am currently running the heat range at 3 and blower speed at 7 . My goal is good heat efficiently as possible , meaning I don't want to spend any more on wood pellets than I have too ! I did read a few threads on this model . Some mentioned an auto setting which I don't think I have , and some have mentioned settings that don't seem to apply to my stove . I do have the manual draft under the door and it is a manual start as best I can tell . Do I just bump up the heat range to a higher number if I want it warmer ? I will start going through some threads in the mean time . Any hints or pointers are greatly appreciated . This looks to be a great site .
