    hello this is Rod the owner of hearthtools.com

    I want to say sorry to some of you that are waiting for manuals
    Our Master copies got messed up and I am trying to find some fresh ones to make copies to send out to you all.
    You get a Trouble shooting guide with the manual when we send the manuals out.

    I hope to have some manuals by next week

    Hello Rod
    When you say that the pelletmaster requires an 8' vent does it have to be straight up before any horizontals?

    I read a post that he said 5'
    but again I tell you my stove uses 4" 24ga black pipe flue with a 2' rise and a 2' horizontal
    I cleaned my stove again today and will do it again in another month.
    Remember to keep your door and hopper gaskets in good repair.
    Even it your stove smokes you shouldn't smell it when your stove doors are closed.

    I like to go 3 feet up then out but you can have less but if you dont have 5 feet or more after your horizantal going up you will have smoke problems especialy when you shut off the stove.

    You need this for Draft to help suck the smoke out.

    there is a way with a Magnehelic to test how much Negitive pressure you have in the hopper.
    Take one screw that holds the front top on that is into the top of the hopper. Put the Negitive side of the hose on this hole and run the stove hot and see if you have a min of .03 vacuum.

    If you do not smoke will back into the hopper.

    Not haveing Neg pressure in the hopper can be from
    Not enough draft in pipe

    Door/ashpan seales bad
    Hopper seal bad.

    Ok I will do that.....should I install a "T " with clean out at end of 3' horizontal ?

    Is there a fan to be installed at top of 5' vertical or is that not needed?

    Also, have you gotten the manuals ready for shipping?

    Did you get your manual and trouble shooting guide UPS yet if not you will get it monday
    I sent it MY SELF 2nd day air.

    The hole in the back is feeding air to a 3000 RPM blower putting more air wll only make tubulance

    Just made sure you pull that blower every year and clean out the dust bunnies and oil it.
    and keep the screen clean.

    The book for the TITAIN shows a min of 24" up before an Elbo then a min of 5 feet up on the out side
    I highlighted it in blue in your manual I sent.

    I am looking for a manual as well. I know they can be purchased but $20 seems rather high. If any has one, I can give you a fax or email address.

    Thanks,

    Sorry i would send it to ya. But I do fell alil uneasy about it. I happily purchased mine from Rod and was happy to pay the 20.00 or what ever it was. As I am still new to pellet stoves and I am still using my Pelletmaster and that Rod's company has parts for said stove.I would rather not get on his bad side.Pay for the manual...help support those who support the pelletmaster and some free advice to boot.


    Again I am sorry to decline u,but Im sure you understand.

    Thanks

    I don’t mind if you send him a copy
    If you can figure out how to copy the front and back and make it all fit.

    The price includes shipping and we send you a Trouble shooting guide that we made up. The manual does not have much of trouble shooting it only covers installation and how to run it.
    So you get TWO books for the price of one.

    I feel the price is right for the COST of shipping it UPS and our time and cost of printing it.
    At least I had the since to Keep all the old Manuals for a stove that has not been made in over 10 years.
    I could have just tossed them out because I don’t need them.
    $20 is not bad TIME is money and im not in business to give my time or money away.

    I have tried to put them on PDF but because they are on 1/2 BOOK layout Front and back pages form they don’t work out correctly in a PDF file

    The reason I was looking for a manual is I can't read the settings on the side of the stove. These are my guess

    First stitch Up: Start Down: Run
    Second Up: Hot Middle: Low Down: Med.

    Second question is in the back of the stove there is a adjustable dial type switch, any idea was it is for?

    Thanks for any help.

    First UP= START CENTER = OFF DOWN = RUN
    Second UP=HIGH FEED CENTER=LOW FEED DOWN= MEDIMUM FEED
    THIRD UP= HIGH FAN CENTER = OFF DOWN= LOW FAN

    The dail in the back should controll the conbustion air, try turning it until you hear a click that will be off. Click it back on and turn 1/4 turn. That should be a good place to start with this stove.
    I have seen this controll connected to the room air on some stoves to controll the noise of the blower on high.

    Is your model rated for rice coal?

    The dial in the back is for the ROOM AIR BLOWER ON LOW
    not the combustin blower.
    this is to adjust the Low setting on the room air fan.

    The fan switch does NOT have a middle selection Only high and low
    you can put it in the middle to turn the fan off but not recomended for the stove will over heat
    and the switch is not designed that way and you might fry it.
