    I've been running the Kozi board for about a week and half. The stove has never run better. I'm burning less pellets. I have no more issues with the stove not re-lighting in the middle of the night, since now I can run it on high/low. I have also noticed that I can go a lot longer in between burn pot cleans. A lot of what I read, the on/off setting will cause more build up due to the cooling and heating constantly. Before running the stove high/low, I had to clean the burn pot everyday.

    I know there are a lot better stoves out there. If you already have a Breckwell, this is well worth the money to make the stove run the way it should.

    There hasn't been a lot interest in this but, I will keep updating incase someone with this issue stumbles upon this thread, and can be helped by it.

    Definitely interested in using the Kozi board but I just broke down and bought a new AE-401 for $250. I replaced the igniter and it still didn't solve my issue. The problems I am seeing all lead to a bad board. If this new board solves the problem, I'll resell it and get a Kozi and run on hi-low mode with the thermostat.

    There is one website that had the Kozi board for $252. If you google Kozi Parts, I think it's the first sight that pops up. I kept my extra Breckwell board, just incase the Kozi board ever fails. I like to have spare parts sitting around, especially since this stove is the only source of heat I have, with the exception of electric baseboard in two of the four bedrooms.

    That's the one. When I was looking for one, I called them twice and they never answered. The first time was MLK day, so I though maybe they were closed for the holiday. I called the Tuesday after and didn't get an answer either. I won't order from online places unless someone can answer the phone, and put their hand on what I'm ordering.

    The only thing I have to gauge the amount of heat is my boiler coil insert. I'm not seeing anymore of a rise with the inlet water temperature and the outlet. I still have the same 15 degree rise. I think I'm burning less for the obvious reason, the stove stays hot all the time.

    I have not had a chance to do the timing. I've been busy at work and usually exhausted by the time I get home. I will try to get on it soon, once we have a decently warm day.

    It seems that my board does the variable speed and it works well on hi/low not sure if is variable speed on different settings l leave it on 3. Does this sound right not sure to try and turn the speed down on the exhaust fan cause I think the heat is not what it should be? Any one know what I should do?
