    Like they've said the CAB50 is meant to cycle. I have a lux thermostat with a 2 degree swing that was reccommended to me here. Works great!

    Cycling saves pellets, believe me. Just don't get paranoid about the igniter, it's made to cycle.

    Not worried so much about that. Just finding now my happy spot with feed and setting. Watching how she's burning now. Little dark grey soot on the right back baffle. Even though I've cleaned her out completely so I believe it's the pellets. Will do a 25 bag clean out this week.

    Did you get this working? I would like to use a NEST as well, but I only have the 2 wires for Rh and W1. This runs the stove but it never cuts out. I think I might need a 'C' wire somehow.

    I don't have a Nest, but a 3m-50 hooked up to my HVAC a system. I didn't have enough juice on my c wire. I hooked up an external transformer to run the t stat. I believe you can do that with a Nest. May want to do a little digging first; how much voltage you'll need and what brand people have used successfully.
