    Just saw a response in another thread from Mike H. at Englander on the "mysterious" lower 3 buttons and the debate over whether they have any influence on the higher heat settings. Here is his response....this should clear this up for everyone permanently (thanks Mike!!):


    "It actually it depends on which model stove it is , which board, and which revision chip it is.

    •Igniter boards: it has play in higher ranges.

    •In the “non igniter” boards it only affects the lowest two settings (1-2)

    • All top feed stoves it affects all settings

    •Bottom feeders - Contact Mike Holton at Englander so he can see what revision chip the change was made for, but as far as stoves with original equipment built 2003 and prior (non igniter), the presets only affect heat ranges 1-2"

    This might be the wrong thread to post this but I recently emailed Mike about venting my Englander Stove. Mike ended up calling me because the way I wanted to vent my stove was, well shall we say, unbelievable.

    I am so glad I bought my Englander stove now more than ever because of this forum and the customer service of Mike.

    With my Englander running on a thermostat, I almost never touch the feed rate and blower buttons. I'm actually using the lower three buttons (Actually only two of them cause I never touch the last one) to make adjustments based on the pellets and conditions on a much more regular basis.

    I've finally found that I can get a really good clean burn with no clinkers and it seems like I'm getting more burn time out of each bag.

    I guess the way I look at it, as long as you can put things back the way they were before, there is relatively little harm in making adjustments.

    Thanks for the details on the way the board works Mike! For the longest time, I didn't think that the adjustments had anything to do other than on the lowest feed settings.

    I played with the bottom buttons for a day and took temp readings for all settings from 1-1-1 to 4-5-1. The results were amaizing. 12 degrees the other night and on 3-7 heat and blower with the bottom on 4-3-1 I am keeping 70 degrees in my 2500 sf colonial. Burn baby burn and haven't even looked at the propane tank. Love my pellet stove.
