This is my first post and I want to say hello and thank all for a lot of great information. I recently got into pellet burning by buying a used(2001) Envirofire EF3 bayi. It was all sooted up and I got it for a pretty good price. I thoroughly cleaned it(took some doing to get the creosote off the heat exchanger), and then installed it. I then had it WETT certified. I fired it up and it seemed to work very well, so I left it alone as it was in the spring. About a week ago I started it up and found that it went out during the start cycle, so I put a small handful of pellets in the burning box and hit the start button again. The fire control knob(feed control) was set at midrange, as recommended. This time it burned, but just barely, so I turned up the feed rate to almost full, and the stove burned nicely. I was concerned about the auger cycle as, at mid range, it was giving about 5 seconds green to green with the green being on for only one second(green on being when the auger is rotating) . So I e-mailed for some tech info and they returned with info on the feed times at various settings. They said that at mid range, the time is supposed to be 7 seconds, green to green, with green on for 3 seconds and off for 4 seconds. My stove is giving 5 seconds green to green--with green on for 1 second and off for 4 seconds. I traced the wires from the set control to the timer module and the module says 1 second and .3-10 seconds. I either have the wrong module or was given wrong info. If the auger is supposed to turn for 3 seconds each time, then that would affect the total feed for any given setting, and may explain all the creosote buildup, due to very low burns. Can anyone out there shed some light please? What are typical cycle times? Anyone with the same stove who can verify? Thanks, and sorry for the longish post.
