    I have a quadra fire pellet stove. The fan is not stopping when the stove is off.

    thanks in advance,

    Darn pellet things, that is why I like a simple wood stove.

    Seriously, it thinks the temp is up and the power on. Please read the stove owners manual and also check for a manual fan switch on the thing.

    Gary, there's a whole lot more expertise specific to pellet stoves on another form here on Hearth.com called "The Pellet Mill & Corn Crib". Try posting over there...odds are someone has the same appliance & can help you figure it out. Good luck! Rick

    Rick is right!

    Try reposting it, but also read the stove Owners Manual. Go to the stove mfg. website if you do not have a copy, and download a pdf copy. Oh yes, pull the plug when the stove is cold.

    Good luck.

    It sounds like the blower cutoff snap disk needs replacing. Which model is this?

    Could be....my Astoria took about 20-25 minutes to finally shut off the blower.....it was still blowing warm air out.
