    I have to ask. What do you expect to happen?
    With the 25 pdvc, if the stat is calling for heat the stove should run at the burn setting on the control panel. When the stat is satisfied the stove will go to the settings determined by the LFF and LAF buttons at the bottom, as if it is burn setting 1. The panel does not announce the change. The only way you will know that anything happened is to watch the fire for a while (don't get hypnotized) and see that the fire really did go to low burn.

    I was under the impression that the blower would go down to 1 when the feed when to 1.
    It's seems to be working as its supposed to do minus the blower changing levels which is alright since it rarely kicks up in these temps and the blower on 5 with it lugging on heat 1 (bottom 3 are currently 2-2-1) I can run 24+hours on a bag of pellets. :)

    Nope, Mike has mentioned this several times and I suspect the manual also speaks to it. Only the firing rate changes.

    Yep... Blower wont change.

    But you also dont need to run 9-9 like the manual states.

    If you want to run 5-6 (5 heat- 6 blower) then run it. The stove runs on whatever settings you have it set for, when calling for heat. Then goes to Heat level 1 and the blower stays at the selected range.

    So if you ran 4-5. The stove would run 4 heat and 5 blower until stat is satisfied. Then heat goes to 1 and blower stays at 5.

    I'm running 1- for low and 2 for high in hi/low mode and it will change as the outside temperature changes.
