    The thermostat is hooked up to the pellet stove but it doesn’t seem to be working properly. It is set for 68 but the actual temperature is ready 76. The limited paper that came with the thermostat states it will send a message of NO heat to the stove but it’s not because it keeps getting

    After a bit more reading it looks the stove will not shut off but go to the lowest setting of 1 still producing heat but minimal. My guess is using the thermostat just gives more accuracy of when the stove kicks down to the lowest setting over using the 5 setting side panel.

    Last I knew the King stove does just that. When the thermostat calls for no heat, it puts it to the lowest heat range, it doesn't turn the stove off and on as heat is needed.

    I modded a King stove once so it would turn on and off with a thermostat (because the lowest heat range was too hot for the house), but it involved building my own circuit board and tapping into the circuit board on the stove.
