to my Englander 25PDVC and was wondering where is the best place to buy one?
This is the one I use on my Englander:
Thanks Imac.....I'll be "proceeding to checkout" in a mere minute
Nice! Let us know how it goes. There is a thread on right from someone who has problems getting theirs to operate the stove. Smokey & I both gave help and instructions on how to set it up.
Make sure you get a thermo with a large "swing". The above lux does.. most crappy cheap thermos do not. Need 5 degrees at least for a pellet stove imho.
5 DEGREE SWING???????????? No way in hell would my wife tolerate a 10 degree change in temperature every hour Actually if you let the temp drop that far, it will continue to fall several more degrees before the stove stops the fall in temp. IMHO that is WAY to much swing.
And this 'crappy cheap thermo' has a good swing adjustment. > http://www.homedepot.com/Building-Materials-Heating-Venting-Cooling-Thermostats-Programmable/h_d1/N-5yc1vZbay9/R-100625708/h_d2/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&storeId=10051#.UMStVoPs6KJ
It's been working just fine for 3 years.
I wouldn't worry to much about the swing setting with a PDVC since it only does high/low your only cycling the feed rate and combustion blower speed, not cycling on and off and shortening the igniter life and such.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought each "swing number" was equal to .5 of temp. A swing of 5 is actually only 2.5 degrees.
Or was it .25 degrees for each swing number?
He said 5 degrees.
The Ritetemp gives the swing in actual numbers so there's no confusion.
