We have a pellet stove with the AcuTron II Control Board and I haven’t used us since the beginning of the year and had it serviced then, but now when I go to Start it, the only light that lights is the igniter. No other lights are flashing or showing. What does this mean? How would I fix this issue?
 
What stove do you have. Acutrons have been used in a couple brands. Did you leave it plugged in all summer? Is it on a surge protector?
 
A Quadra Fire 1200I. It has not been plugged in since I used it last (earlier in the year); and it is not on a surge protector either.
 
Quadrafire pelletstove control boards are made by pantrol. Can you post a picture?
 
Sounds like a bad control panel. The Accutron IV is the direct replacement now

I apologize, I misinformed you. I was mistaken. Our fireplace isn’t a Quadrafire, it’s a Vulcan Bay Window Insert Stove. And this is the control panel.

ahh good im not loosing my mind. yeah it sounds like your board needs replacing as Don pointed out.
 
@Ssyko Sir you seem to be very knowledgeable, so I will ask a question. Already knowing what I believe to be the answer.
1. Dansons Pellet Stove, Model HHFP2BD with a AcuTron II control board.
2. It starts up but will not cycle past #1 solid feed rate and the ignitor light stays on long after the fire is burning.
3. Eventually the ignitor light goes out and after a while it cools itself off and shuts down.

I have stopped it, unplug it wait 10 min and start over same results
Thoroughly cleaned it and the ignitor, starts a nice fire, but will not cycle past start.

Answer: New AcuTron IV CB - direct replacement? Best place to buy a new AcuTron IV?

Boxcar-7...trying to stay warm in Upstate NY!!!
