    The tech came out today to fine tune the stove as the low hopper icon stayed on constantly. Since he left, the stove has shut down 4 times (gone into auto-clean mode) within 7 hours . IS THIS NORMAL? I realize it needs to go into shut down mode to dump the ash, but 4 times in 7 hours seems excessive to me. Anyone have this problem?

    By the way, the low hopper icon came back on and won"t go off. Go figure.

    Shut down for the auto-clean? Or because something went wrong?

    Auto cleqan times are set by the fuel type you are set on what fuel is the stove set on?

    Wow, I wasn't aware of that. We usually use hardwood setting as that is what we use. However, the tech asked us to try the utility setting. Thoughts?

    Utility should auto-clean more, because that type of pellet contains more ash.

    It is ultimately determined by the number of auger rotations. Cleans more often on high than on low.

    I would have to go back and look at the code for the utillity but i think it will clean about every hour and 5 minutes on the Utillity setting?
