    i have a qudrafire castile made in 2010, on initial startup pellets should drop into fire box then stop, but they just keep dropping eventually filling fire box and overflowing, i just replaced control box because of the auger not working but ended up being a snap switch so i know it is not control box, and i also replaced the thrmo switch at the same time, is there another switch somewere that controls the pellet feed?

    Check and see what number setting control box is on. Yours should be #4. And always remember to unplug stove before installing or removing a control box, or you run the risk of toasting it. kap

    How do you know the control boxes are good? Do you know someone that you can try the boxes in their stove? Or a dealer that would try em one of his stoves? Only other thing that can be wrong is some wires installed wrong, or a short somewhere that is giving power to auger motor so it keeps feeding. kap
