Does anyone know if I can get a remote thermostat for a 2005 model? Thanks!

If the stove is thermostat ready you can use any millivolt or 24 volt thermo stat or remote control unit
Yep. You can put one on ESW stoves manufactured after 2003.
I can put any brand remote thermostat? I do not have to get it from englander?
Most stove companies want you to use their parts, but in general a switch is a switch.
Ya need to check with ESW. The remote thermostat could be used on models through 2003 but the wall thermostat works with all of them. It is $46.
Is it true that the Englander stoves won't turn on and off with the thermostat (specifically the 25pdvc) - the thermostat only controls the heat output? Is that common for other brands, too?
I guess, in one way, you wouldn't really want the stove to be going through startup over and over all day long, either...
That being said, the room my stove is in usually gets up to 73+ degrees, but the rest of the house is cooler... Any suggestions on where to put the thermostat?
I got a cheap thermostat from walmart and it has worked fine. I used speaker wire and set it up away form the stove. the instructions are on englander's web sight.
thermostats running this model stove will allow the unit to run at the heat range you select when caling for heat , once satisfied the thermostat opens and the unit drops to a low burn just like it was turned down to heat range 1 and it will continue to run at that rate until the thermostat calls for heat again , at which time it goes back to the selected heat range
I installed a wall thermostat, does it matter which wire goes in which terminal on the stoves board? The wire I used is two wire thermostat wire with a red and white lead. I matched up the colors on the thermostat, but I 'm curious if it matters on the stove. Thanks.
It doesn't matter what color goes where. The thermostat acts as on (closed) or off (open).
The only place it counts is on the thermostat it self. The instructions should show you where to put the 2 wires in a 2 wire installation.
