    Quadra-Fire Classic Bay 1200i pellet stove Manual?

    Hello The manual in the link above is dated April 01,2016 so 2 years after the stove was purchased but not necessarily after it was made. Check the MFD on the stove. I just attached a manual dated Sept 1,2008 which maybe more appropriate for this serial # stove

    Repairing a loose exhaust housing flange on a pellet stove?

    Hello I have seen this many times. Very common in Travis and Whitfields, Breckwells and others. The screws holding the flange on to the housing are too small and there is not enough silicone. Therefore after the vibration and heat from the exhaust blower it breaks loose so it can easily be...

    Heating a Darkroom with a Serenity - Weird Question

    Take out the glass and replace it with a piece of steel. That will work fine. You can cut the steel to shape with a jig saw and easily buy a piece of steel from online metals!

    Pool filter pump plug oxidizing and getting hot???

    It is an above ground pool and we take the filter and pump inside for the winter. Anyway, this new plug has a rubber seal inside of it so hopefully it seals better against moisture than the old one. The hinge is on the top side and the cutout for the wire is on the bottom side like it should be...

    Pool filter pump plug oxidizing and getting hot???

    Few more pics It seems to be working so we will see if it turns on and off at the set times. :) The timer like the circuit breaker box is screwed to 3/4” plywood which is screwed into the wall studs 16” on center. It is the basic 120 VAC Intermatic T101 SPST timer so very easy to wire up despite...

    Pool filter pump plug oxidizing and getting hot???

    Hello The cord and plug was hot because it was on a 15 amp circuit with other outlets and it was oxidizing & corroding! According to this article. The pump outlet should be on a 20 amp separate circuit with an NEMA L520-R Turnlok Receptacle and a NEMA L520-P Turnlok Plug !!! See details below...

    Harman vs Comfortbilt

    There is more too it when the stove is in room temp mode and feeds more or less pellets depending upon the resistance of the room temp probe. Since the board maker does not share that info we will not know for sure. I have noticed that the voltage of the room blower and exhaust blower changing...

    Annual Service

    Yes I agree. My favorite summer problem is what we call “Summer Choke Down” :) That is when the humidity and moisture gets in to all the ash stuck to the walls of the venting and gets so heavy it falls down to choke up the exhaust blower so no exhaust will blow out. This of course will trip the...

    Harman vs Comfortbilt

    I have worked on many Harmans and changed many circuit boards. I am not saying you are incorrect. Sure if you change a Rev E Board for a Rev F Board then the difference that you will notice is when the stove has a vacuum error the board status light will give 2 blinks! That makes fixing a vacuum...

    Harbor Freight little hole driller with low RPM speeds for the hard stuff & coupon register debacle

    Hi Thanks for your comments The Lowe’s tiles are on the plywood I made for the bottom shelf. The brace had a lip on the top edge that holds all the legs together so I said why not putt some sturdy 3/4” plywood on top! Then to make the shelf look nice I said why not put self stick tiles on top of...

    Harman P43 vs Accentra free standing

    Hello I have a friend who has owned both of these stoves. So his experience may help. The Accentra FS is pretty but harder to clean because you must remove the interior panels and buff them out and then align them properly to fit them back in. He has also had an issue with the big tall fire door...

    Disadvantage of new vapor outlet boxes when replacing them! #%€!!€$&@!!,

    Yes and in our 1890’s house all the outlets were cut into the baseboard Moldings and the cellar had BX wiring with a fuse box. Not easy to add any more!!

    Disadvantage of new vapor outlet boxes when replacing them! #%€!!€$&@!!,

    I grew up in a 3 story 1890 Victorian and updating and fixing is quite costly and very difficult! I saw the house recently and it has a new addition! I cannot imagine how much that costs! I purchased a 1960’s split and the ease and cost of updating is considerably less$$. I did ad an addition on...

    Converting a 3-phase outlet?

    In your case since both outlets are 20 amp then the wire feeding them is correctly sized and the breakers are also sized correctly. To go from 230 VAC 40 amp for an electric range down to 120 VAC 15 amp circuit may require smaller gage wire. Just my 2 cents

    Harman vs Comfortbilt

    Sounds like if the Circuit Board was replaced with the new Rev F updated circuit board the Harman P61 would be much more efficient and work like a new stove for only $200. That shows to me that Harman is the best and even a used Harman is better than many brand new stoves! :)

    Disadvantage of new vapor outlet boxes when replacing them! #%€!!€$&@!!,

    Hello Having more electrical outlets is always good. Just plugging in a power strip works but is cumbersome. So when I saw the ac outlet with 2 USB outlets, that would be nice to have? Why take out a a good gfci outlet to put this one in? So I got a double gang box to add this one in. so why not...
