    Convection blower slow to come on and off - Quadrafire Classic Bay 1200 FS

    My stove (year 2000) calls for heat, ignites, drops pellets, and then lags to turn convection blower on (15+ minutes). Once it reaches temp, the convection blower lags to shut off... 30+ minutes after exhaust blower does. It's super noisy on startup too- grinding metallic noise, but that fades...

    Big E Convection Blower runs too fast

    I have a Big E pellet stove. Replaced a convection blower for the second time. First one was tree years ago. Once installed the new blower, stove runs fine but blower is running at high speed all the time. The stove was working fine before installing new blower. Any thoughts?

    Quadra-fire Castile squealing fan - Combustion or Convection fan?

    HI All, I have a 2015 Quadrafire Castile insert, this is our second winter. It has been working great so far, only (minor) issue is that when it goes through it's shutdown phase, it sometimes makes a squealing noise.

    convection blower problems?

    HI. My pellet stove seems to do everything right until it's time to blow hot air into the room. I have a quadrafire 1200 classic bay insert. The fire starts pellets feed but the blower never starts. I bypassed the snap disk 1 and that didn't help. I bought a new convection blower and that...
