    Hi all this is my first post .. I have a winrich pellet stove, just got it and it needs some help
    I am aware of a company that sells parts for it but they are not very helpful with troubleshooting
    ideally they'd prefer if a customer buys all the parts regardless if they need them or not :)they charge $80+ for phone support
    ok so my stove auger motor works but the green light does not come on and it will feed only using the manual switch...
    there is a rotary feed speed control but instead of changing the speed of the auger motor , it changes the speed of the blower fan ?!?!

    My first thought was to replace the 3 thermal switches ( high and low limit), 2 have fallen off and are broken but maybe there is more..
    to start .. does anyone know how I can test the control board?
    can I buy any brand snapswitch ? they seem to be pretty standard parts on most stoves the winrich has F120-xxxx and I have seen others with similar numbers so I am assuming they are the same and differ only by temperature..

    thanks
    PS
    I would love to be able to find some schematics or a manual for this stove .. a scan would be nice :)

    Thanks ... yes I have already looked at both, very helpful though I was hoping to find better looking schematics, the snapswitches #'s in my stove are partially rubbed off
    and that schematic is really hard to read but I think I got most of it right .. I hope LOL

    I did follow some of the web site tips but no luck ...
