    I have an Accentra insert. I usually run it on temp mode. Last night, i turned the temp down to about 65 and the distribution fan shut off and never restarted during the night. It got colder than 65 and I am wondering why the distribution fan did not turn on. Any thoughts?

    You probably had it on Stove Temp mode. You want to have it on Room Temp mode ;-)

    Steve,
    We need a little more info. How old is the stove? Assume it has automatic ignition? If so, did you have it on Room Temp Manual or Auto? (there is a small switch on the control panel) What you describe will happen when the set temp is reached in Room Temp/Manual mode. You could have other problems but we need this info to help you out.
    As others have said, read the sticky at the top of the page or click on the link in my signature...it will really help you understand how your stove works.

    Sounds like the problem could be the room temp. sensor/probe.
