    How old is your stove? Are you saying that E2 is showing 3 minutes into your startup? We need a little more info before myself or anyone can even remotely offer some better advice.

    After it lights and burns for about 3 minutes then the E-2code pops on my stove goes into shut down.The stove is a 2004 model with a new control panel that is 3 months old.I don't know if that new igniter is weak not strong enough.

    Okay, the fact that it's throwing an E2 code after 3 minutes is a problem in itself. The fact that you swapped out the control panel recently has me wondering whether or not you need to do a board reset or the board was set wrong when you received it from I would assume Englander? You can search on this site by asking for control board reset for 25-pdvc. If you cannot locate it let me know and I will try to get back to you in a timely fashion with the instructions.

    When I got the board it was set at 641 they said it was fine it would burn better then the factory setting of 531.Now with it set at 641 it ate pellets so I back it down to 541 and it seemed to be fine and burn good.This morning I did a factory rest and when I checked what the setting was it was at 541I didn't have to change it.Tonight I'm going to try and back out the igniter a bit

    Yeah I think they all do you have to change it with the arrow up or down button on the heat setting

    I'm just a tad confused on how you're getting an E2 error and if you are getting it press the start button again and then you should see E0 and it should go into the proper start up. You can also use some Firestarter for pellet stoves or use a mini torch as an alternative m to see if that will remedy your current problem by bypassing the igniter.

    I guess it's worth a shot, but I highly doubt that is your problem. Good luck

    It only started to do this after I put in new igniter.So it might be a bad igniter or to close

    I'm thinking it's in the igniter not strong enough fired it up this morning took longer to light burning for 2 minutes then E-2 popped up I even put the old igniter back last night in still waiting to hear back from england stoves.I seem some igniters list as 300w 1200deg something like that they call it a up grade not sure if it true.I will play with the alignment if the old one just to see if it's one of those picky ones.

    Disconnect the igniter and then use an alternative starter to light the stove. If it starts without an error you probably have an issue with igniter or a board issue.

    I'm sure you have already troubleshot this with Englander customer service, but I hope that you explain them and complete detail. I still think that you should try to disconnect the igniter and then start up to see if you get an error. I don't think I can add any more to help you so I wish you good luck.

    You lost me with taking out the burn pot, but either way I'm glad you're back up and burning.

    Heard back from england stoves he said sounds like a air problem.Now I did a good cleaning but I found on the top where you take out the impingement plate it's bowed out tried to post pic but says it's to large

    That should have absolutely no bearing on your burn.

    I'm sorry I misunderstood you as I thought you thinking that maybe the impingement plate had something to do with airflow. Out of curiosity have you plugged the bottom two holes underneath the burn plate? They are the ones on either side and are about the size of a quarter.
